am curious here on everyones response. I sold my speakers to a buddy of mine who happened to buy my 4802 about a year ago. At the same time he was interested in purchasing my Aragon Stage One pre/pro and B&K 200.5 amp so I transported them to his house and we hooked them up and to both of our surprise the Denon sounded better than the seperates in his room with SACD and DVD Audio as well as Dolby Digital. To say the least he did not buy the seperates from me and he kept the Denon. This got me to thinking and I was wondering if I could get some input and feedback. Does anyone think that the 5805 or soon to be released 4805 with the Denon 3910 or soon to be released 5910 with the all digital hookup as well as the auto eq/auto cal would sound better than mid fi seperates like the Aragon, B&K, Parasound, Rotel etc. or am I crazy and should just stick to seperates. I building a new house with a dedicated 22X16 theater and will need to purchase this equipment in late January, early February. I do plan on auditioning as much equipment as possible but in my hometown there is only Denon, Rotel, Aragon, Krell so an in home audition is almost impossible. Sorry for the long post and everyone have a Merry Christmas and a safe holiday season.
