I posted this over at AVSForum, but haven't gotten much of a response, so I figured you guys may be able to help me out. I currently own a H/K AVR25II which I bought about 6 years ago. I use it for 70/15/15 TV/XBox/DVD. The AVR25II only decodes Dolby Pro Logic, and if I remember correctly, outputs 65 high current, discrete Watts per channel. Here's my dilemma. I'm considering upgrading and cannot compare my current receiver to others side by side simply because the AVR25II isn't sold any more. The Denon 3803 has caught my eye. Here are my questions: 1. Will I notice a marked improvement in audio by getting the 3803 considering its decoding capabilities and higher wattage rating? Clearly making a move to something like a Sunfire would dramatically improve performance, but would a move to the 3803 be a noticeable difference? The last thing I want is to make a lateral move to a different receiver. My speakers are all Definitive Technology (BP10B fronts plus sub, center, and rears). 2. I notice the 3803 has 100 MHz component video switching. Component video switching is a must since I just ordered a Sony 60XBR950 which only has 2 component video inputs. Has anybody noticed video signal degradation by using the 3803 as a video switch? I really like the price of the 3803 as discussed in other threads considering I'm spending a pretty big chunk of change for the new TV. I'm not particularly worried about the potential soon release of the 3804 since the 3803 decodes many more formats than my current receiver will. Basically, would this be a smart upgrade? Thanks for your help!
