This week I will be taking the plunge and buying my first Home Theatre system. I am pretty sure these are the speakers I will be going with: Paradigm Ref. Studio 60 Paradigm Ref. Studio ADP Paradigm Pw2200 sub. No center for the moment ( no where to put it ) My dilema is which reciever? I was pretty much set on the Denon 3802 until I got to the second store yesterday, which doesn't sell Denon, and didn't have anything with all the same features. But the salesman asked me to listen to the Arcam AVR200, I did, and muscially it beat out a comparable Yamaha, Integra and Pioneer Elite. I have no immediate plans to go to more than a 5.1 set-up, which the Arcam I think would handle well. The Arcam uses a Tirodial (sp?) transformer and has most of the feature I want ( PL2, pre-outs, SACD in ...) but lacks the extra channel capability of the Denon. How many movies can I expect to actually take advantage of the extra channels which the Denon could handle? What would you do? The prices of the two units are almost the same, and suspect I would use the system a bit more for movies than for music. Thoughts? Thanks, Brian.
