    Gene: I'm sure you will be very happy with the 3802. Actually, I have trouble justifying spending any more than $1000 for a receiver. The 3802 does just about everything you could want:

    It decodes everything, including DPLII, DTS & DD.

    It allows for 2 surround back center channels & I use the B surrounds for a pair of stereo speakers in my dining room.

    It's got plenty of power as I'm running 9 speakers off of this receiver! I can play my system as loud as you can stand. (I don't use my 3802 to power my sub)

    Realistically, I can't see spending a whole lot more for a receiver or separates. I think there would be diminishing returns. There are a lot of great receivers that offer similar quality: Yamaha, Marantz, Onkyo, Sony, etc. I think it comes down to how you value one or two particular features over another.

    I used to use a Denon 3300 as a pre w/ Marantz mono amps for my front channels. The 3802 on it's own sounds just as good.

    Now...those of you with high cost receivers or separates, don't get miffed. I'm talking in terms of a nice, normal HT set-up. Not for best of the best, state of the art, critical listening.

    Gene: Hook it up & enjoy!!!

    PS: I'll step down from my soapbox now!
