I went to a tweeter store yesterday to buy a Denon 3805. After going over my speaker set up, he said are you sure you want denon and not the rxv2500? I said why. He told me that the yamaha would be easier to balance my front speaker set up and that denon was a real pain to learn and get set up right. My fronts are not in alignment due to walls and etc. Just as he went thru the reasons why another sales person walking by heard the tail end of the conversation and just said Yamaha is easier. In the real world out there what do you users think. Thanks What would be OK to put in a digital media server and for go the AVR? Please forgive me however I am new to this whole set up.
