    I am looking to purchase a new HT receiver. I currently have two B&W DM303's and I am going to expand to a 5.1 system. I was originally interested in the Sony STR-DA1ES receiver, but the new ES line from Sony has pushed the 1000ES out of my price range for now. Does anyone have a recommendation? I currently have a Yamaha RX-V493. I have looked at the HK, Pioneer, and Yamaha receivers as well. Please let me know. Thanks.

    The Denon 2802 seems to be a very good match with my 600 series B&W's.

    With the new Sony line coming in you might be able to get a good deal on the older models. Shop around and see what you find as people begin to unload existing stock to make room for the new line.

    I have a 4ES for my bedroom system and really enjoy it. Unfortunately, I can't say how it compares to other brands. Shop and compare features.

    Denon 3803. $850 for a b-stock full warranty through Denon. Buy it at Dakmart.

    I'll second the Denon 3803. And a vote for Rotel - Rotel sounds, IMO, awesome on B&Ws.
