    I own the Denon 3802, and I am very pleased with the unit. At first, the 3802 retailed for $1199, but has since dropped to $999. The 3802 is rated at 110 watts x 7 channels, and offers a host of connection options. The 3802 sounds excellent for both movies and music. I am a custom A/V installer, and I feel that the Denon 3802 is one of the best A/V receiver values for under a grand!!

    The Sherwood Newcastle 863 has 100 watts x 7. DPLII, DTS-ES, DTS NEO, 4 digital inputs, and it has 7.1 inputs "with" BASS Management.

    It lists for $1200 but street price is around $800 something

    It is great, Your other option would be the Harman Kardon AVR-520 or 320 (5 channels only) with a Good Stereo Amp.

    Both (HKs)are very capable although they don't inflate their wattage ratings or rate them at 6 ohms.

    If you don't mind stretching your budget (what fun would this hobby be if we didn't) then go for the HK8000, with a street price of $1500-1600. Very powerful amps + Lexicon's famous Logic7 processing which can be applied to any signal (stereo, DD, DTS).

    Breck,
    So let me get this strait,you are trying to say that ALL receivers w/7 channel amplifiers under 50 Lbs don't have quality? Very few receivers with 7 amps are over 50 Lbs.I think that statement is total NONSENSE! Its the sound that matters,and its stupid to even try to equate weight to number of channels of amplification to determine quality.Personally, I judge quality by actually LISTENING to a receiver.The better it sounds is proof of the quality of its components.

    Ryan,
    Check out the Pioneer Elite VSX-36TX. Last time I looked Soundtrack had it on sale at around $990.00 and a 35tx for around $600.00. Keep in mind that most (but not all) 7.1 receivers will need a seperate amp for the rear channels. Scoot on over to the Pioneer web site and have a look. Remember that no matter what anyone says (including me!), it's your money and your ears. Buy what sounds good to you!![​IMG]

    i also have a Denon 3802. Got it back in September from www.6ave.com (authorized online dealer) for $850 shipped.
    Great features and great sound for the price.

    Breck,
    your totally outta line my friend... i'd tone it down a little. This is a friendly forum and we like to keep it that way.
    BTW, The 5803 weighs 62 pounds not 50. [​IMG]
