    I have a Denon 3801 and wanted to compare type A speakers against type B speakers. Is it possible to do this on the 3801 "on the fly"?

    I know when you go to a stereo shop they have a switcher that switches back and forth between speakers while your listening to a song (i.e. A/B speaker comparison). I'd like to do this with the 3801 without disconnecting wires.

    The Denon has "A" and "B" speaker terminals, but I think these are for surround sound speakers...but I'm not really sure.

    Thanks,

    Ed

    The A/B switch is for the surrounds speakers.

    Paul,

    thanks for that link. I'm not really wanting to buy a switcher but wanted to know if the Denon has a feature like a switcher. I used to have an old stereo receiver that had two buttons labled "A speakers" and "B speakers", where you could switch between speakers.

    So I guess the Denon can not do this?

    Thanks,

    Ed

    what if you just used surround A and B, and set the Denon to 5 Channel Stereo mode? That should work. Obviously this would only be to do a comparison of 2 speakers, not a permanent setup.
