I have 5 NHT SuperZeros for a separate ht system (full tube 2 ch. system elsewhere) with Carver sub.

I watch a bunch on my plasma and want DPLII. Also want to use dvd-audio and maybe multi sacd (have RP91 and XA777ES)

Live in apartment, so no 7.1 now, but want it for future.

Which of these three (7.2, 3802, DA5ES) is the best bang for me?

Strictly for ht, tv, and gamecube....thanks!

That's a tough one. Any of them would be fine. I'm partial to Denon equipment, so I would recommend the 3802 or it's sister model the 1082 which can be had for less money. The Sony is reputed to have more flexible bass management than the other 2, although with 5 identical speakers that is not a big issue. The Denon has more flexible bass management than the Integra.

Basically they are all good receivers -- toss a dart and buy the one it hits.
