    I am thinking on buying a receiver for my house. I am very new at this and I am sure there must be other options due to the price. I like the DENON AVR 5803A. I think it is expensive. Is there anything similar but much cheaper?

    Thanks,

    At that price range you may want to just consider going into seperates.

    You asked if there was anything similar but cheaper, so I listed the cheaper models. The models I listed are all excellent receivers and you'll save a lot of money which you could use towards a separate power amp or other hardware.

    Does the Denon 3803 have all the bells and whistles the 5803 has?

    What is a really good amp in your opinion?

    I love HT and I like High definition.

    If you are looking at the 5803, I'd really consider separates. I'd never spend that kind of dough on a receiver. Take a look at Rotel, Adcom, maybe Outlaw, and I'm sure others. You might do well to throw out a budget and get some commentary on what is good in your price range.

    I guess I can tell you what I have that I want to keep. LOL

    1 pair of Klipsch RF3

    I as every one else think I would like to spend the least and get the most. To give you an idea of my likings I like Yamaha and Denon amps. And my theory is: Louder is better.

    I think the max of me spnding on an amp would be realistically 3 grand.

    Any ideas?

    What do you all suggest?
