    OK, I just found out I can get the Denon 3803 for a steal ($575) vs. the $1400 for the 4802. So, I'm thinking I'll get the 3803 and add some outlaw Mono Blocks to make up for the power difference.

    They will be powering Def Techs:
    Front: BP10's
    Center: CLR2000
    A Surrounds: BPVX (Movies)
    Rears: BPCX
    B Surrounds: BPVX (DVD Audio)

    So, I was thinking about getting the Outlaw Monoblocks since they are onsale. Can I get by with 3 (L/C/R) and use the Denon to power the surrounds and rears?
    Then I can just get the Monoblocks as I can to fill in the rest.

    You can but beware, tonal differences between channels can just kill your proper digital surround imaging. I would get just the Denon first and see if you feel you really need more power. Them Denon watts is pretty good watts ya know.... lol

    Now if you could get all new mean amps, that would be great, the Denon has a good enough pre-amp to stand right in there with very high end separates. IMHO (I actually like the sound of their power amps over nearly any other amp myself, but that is preference and I am in no way say'n they really perform as well as a lot of other amps. The Denon's just have a smoothness I really seem to love.
