    Hi. This is my first post, and I was wanting to get some advice on A-V Receivers. I have had my house wired with monster cable, and I have set my heart on Definitive ProAudio 100 speakers. Of all the research I have done I think my first choice in Receivers is the Marantz SR 8000. However after talking with people I am wondering if I could get the 7200 and be just as happy. I am also looking at the Denon 3802 or 4800, and the integra 7.1. Any advice, information, or stories about any of this equipment would be appreciated. I am looking to spend $1500 or less, but would pay more if it were worth it. Thanks in advance.

    There are basically two things you need to ask:
    (1) Does one receiver sound significantly better? The only way to answer this is to listen to them.
    (2) Does the receiver have ergonomics and adequate switching facilities for my uses? I always like to get a receiver that's going to last years. If you've got or are going to have multiple high def bandwidth sources that's important.
