Hello All, Today i purchased a denon 3801 from a local hifi store. I paid $700.00 out the door. I could have purchased online cheaper,but i`ve been doing business with these guys for years and they are an authorized dealer. The 2802 i was looking at is 695.00 best offer. At any rate i think i made a wise decision. When i got it home and hooked it up i was amazed at the pure clean power this receiver puts out.The soundstage is so deep and spacious sounding it`s scary. Now i know why a lot of you on this board favor denon products. It blows away my old sony db 840. I can`t wait to get a second pair of surround speakers hooked up to this monster.You guys/gals on this board put out some really great advice,keep up the good work and thanks.
