    Weird 3805 problem..Need some input..

    My buddy's new 3805 when on the tuner or CD input fades the sound down to nothing within the first 10 seconds of listening. I have no idea why? He runs an Outlaw 200 x 5 amp for LF,C,RF,LS,RS. the rear surrounds are run off the 3805. When watching tv or a DVD through the receiver all is fine...

    What influences sound more, my pre pro or my amp?

    I run a Ref50 pre, a Ref200.5, Ref200.2 amps. Does the pre pro influence the sound more or, is it the amp? Reason i ask is... thinking about changing my pre (eventually). If i bought an Integra pre for example, would the sound change or is it mostly in the amp? I'm curious to see some comments...

    Ref50 firmware upgrade did not help audio drops

I still have the drops. I'm bummed. I know...

    How do you calibrate a duel sub configuration ?

    Question on adding an amp to a Denon 5803 ?

    I have a question for ya's... If i want to buy a mutichannel amp for my 5803, how does it work? Do you go into the system setup and turn off all the internal amps? or, do you just connect the cables and it automatically shuts off the internal amps? How's it work? Thanks guy's.
