I just bought a Monster Power HTS Power Center and I'm wondering where I plug in my receiver. Is the Denon AVR-3300 considered a "high current" component that I would need to plug it into the switched plugs (Amp 1 & 2), or should I just plug it in where it says receiver, which is considered "low current?"

Peace,

if you've got the space to plug the denon into a high current plug why wouldn't you? I'm not sure you'd hear a difference though either way.

Andrew,

I want to put the plug in the right place. Technically the 3300 is a receiver, correct? The owner's manual says the Receiver plug is for "low current" components and the Amp 1 & Amp 2 plugs are for "high current" components. That's why I want to know if the 3300 is high current or low current. Make sense?

Dave, if Monster Cable doesn't define 'high' or 'low' current in their literature then it probably doesn't matter from an electrical standpoint. However I believe the high current switched receptacles have a time delay, usefull for amplifiers that don't have their own delay relays built-in (probably not too many of those out there anymore, either). Since the 3300 has a built-in output delay you don't need this feature, so use a low current receptacle.
