    Just wondering if someone could help me understand why going the seperate route will sound better for music. Is it a considerable increase in music quality? How would the hometherater portion of the sound be afected? I am just about set to go for a 3802 for my first dive into the realm of HT, but I would rather spend a little more money now than have regret after purchase if it would be worth it.

    Using a receiver with external amps or a HT pre/pro with external amps gains you the same advantages for 2-channel music as it does for HT. If you really want to focus on 2-channel performance, I would suggest a quality 2-channel preamp with no frills. Many stereo preamps have HT passthrough capability, so they can be used with receivers/pre-pros and external amps.

    Just my opinion, of course.
