Due to budget constraints and the fact that I have 5 Denon amps that I need to employ I am seriously considering the Denon AVP-8000. I know it is getting dated but they can be picked up for a decent price and from the reviews it seems it has a pretty decent 2 channel preamp section. My problem is I just don't understand enough of the HT terms to know what I would be getting! I need a good 2 channel piece but also need a decent HT setup above pro-logic. If anybody's bored and can take a look at the Denon or if somebody owns or has owned it could you please educate me? My DVD has an optical out if that info would help. Thanks for any help. BTW, I have the AVP-5000 which is serving me fairly well but it's only pro-logic.

The AVP-8000 is the rack mount version of the AVP-5000, of witch I own... this is an absolute amazing preamplifier, the quality of this piece will blow you away... it has three programmable optical inputs, I am using my d-tv optical output into the AVP-5000 and have had no issues, beautiful sound... for the price if you like 5.1 this is an excellent deal used... I would look for one of these unit with the dts built in, that is nice, or you could put a Millennium 2.4.6 dts decoder on it, I heard these are amazing much better than the built in dts by Denon... the ac-3 sounds great on this as well, I am always wxcited to see a program come on in ac-3... let me know if you have any questions...
