    [​IMG] Thanks to the Seahawks I can upgrade my search for a new HT receiver. I'll pass on the Yamaha's 2400 and 1400. I'm now looking at the HK avr 525, NAD t762 or the Denon 3803. For another $200 US I can get the HK avr 7200.(I've got a friend coming up from New Jersey for Christmas and he says he'll bring one up for me.) The avr 7200 sells up here for $3000 cdn, the avr 525 or 630 $1800 and the NAD for $1500.
    Is the avr 7200 that much better to spend the extra money?
    Any goog places in New Jersey to get good prices on these units?
    Thanks for the help

    I'd add the Rotel 1055 to your short list as well since its about the same price as the NAD.

    I would look at www.soundcity.com (in denville) and a new place that opened, something called electronics-expo (in raritan and ledgewood). They both sell audio equipment for pretty decent prices.

    I think the T762 might be a little better than the HK AVR-525 and the Denon 3803.

    If you can get the AVR-7200 I think that is a great flagship reciever, and would come in above both the t763 and 3803.

    Good luck.

    I sold my HK 525 due to that super annoying fan that came on every 5-10 minutes, and the reciever was well ventilated!!!


    Denon 3803 all the way. Super sound, bulid quality, and just does the job [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Depending on your budget you may want to keep your eye on the Yamaha RX-V1400 for features and powering the rear speakers. Get a 3ch amp for the fronts.

    Thanks for the help. I was set to get the Yamaha RX-V3300 but just listened to the Denon 3803 and was nery impressed. Can't seem to find many reviews on the 3300. Any one out there have one? From the company brochure it looks very impressive.

    Sinbad,

    I own the Denon 4802 and would put it up with any receiver on the market for build quality, sound and power. But like me everyone has a bias on what they like. Give all the units a listen and pick the one that sounds best to you. Beside that you would be happy with all the above units that were mentioned. I would try to stay away from Kenwood. Just my opinion.
