I rarely listen to music at home; therefore, I wouldn't consider my self as an audiophile...or perfectionist. I plan to use the surround mainly for DvDs, and Gaming...XBOX! I don't need 7.1, but 6.1 would be good, heck even 5.1. I have been considering a Denon 3803 and a decent set of surround speakers. I don't want to spend more then say $2000.00 total. I currently have a 53" HDTV Panasonic TV Widescreen; so, that is taken care of for now anyway! I recently have been looking at the Yamaha products too and they really interest me too! I even like the YTH-941 system with 800 watts power. Would that suit my needs sufficiently? What are your thoughts? I would really like to stay below $1800.00 total.
