When I decided to make the jump from 2-channel audio into 5-channel home theatre several years back, I replaced my trusty Rotel preamp and B&K amplifier with a Denon AVR-3200. While I enjoy surround sound from a movie standpoint, I've always thought that listening to CDs just wasn't quite the same after the transition. It's "missing something"... I've thought of replacing the receiver, but the newer Denon models (and most other newer receivers) no longer have an AC-3 RF input for laserdisc players. Would adding a mid- or high-end 2-channel amp to drive the fronts make a noticible difference? I figure that for movies, it would take a load off the Denon, freeing its resources to drive the center/rear channels. For 2-channel music listening, I'd have the "cleaner" and/or beefier power of the better amp.
