    Hi,
    I am looking to upgrade my setup which currently consists of RF-3, RS-3 and RC-3, a Technics SA-AX7, SH-C500D, Panasonic DVD changer. I am looking to get a little bit more highend.
    I know that I can get a Denon 4800 for 1800CDN which to me sounds like a good deal. I was initially planning on getting the Outlaw Pre/Pro and mating it with the Rotel RMB-1075 (5*120watts) and then down the road adding the RB-1080 (2*200)for 7.1. I also thought that I could get the Denon and add the RB-1080.
    Which do you guys recommend?

    Ken,
    I currently have the 4800 & use the Rotel RB-1080 to power my mains(Paradigm Studio 100s). I have been very happy with this setup. I plan to add the Rotel RMB-1095 in the future & use the 4800 as a pre/pro.

    Ken,
    Look at my recent thread at the Klipsch BB, http://www.klipsch.com/index.asp?pat...=y&id=&line=&1 EDIT Link isn't working. Go to this thread "If you had to choose between...." in the Home theater section of the forum. You may have checked it out already.
    I'm seriously considering the RMB-1075. What I'm not sure of is what pre/pro to go with. The new Outlaw is going to be a contender but it's price is a bit high for my budget. I'm thinking that I might go with a 3802 as a pre/pro until I can upgrade to a high quality separate in the future. A fair number of people here use Denon as pre/pro's and upgrade their amplification. It's not a bad way to ease the transition into all separates.
    ------------------
    You want to upgrade again?!!
