Hi guys, As most of you already know, I have a DENON AVR-5803 on order and should be arriving within the week... I was also in the market for Pre/Pro separates as well... Long story short, I was about to pull the trigger on ANTHEM's AVM-20 for around $2500 but then I got an offer for Denon AVR-5803 for only a few hundred more DEFINATELY under $3K... At this price point I considered the DENON as a Quality PRE/PRO with training wheels so that ONE day when I learn how to appreciate separates more, I could take off the training wheels and use the POWER of Denon as a PRE/PRO and use an outboard AMP... I ONLY pulled the trigger because of the price that I was able to get the DENON for, if it was anywhere here the $4300 MSRP, I would be a HAPPY Anthem onwer right now... Love to know your opinion, what do you think? Thanks, -Alex PS. Yes I'm looking for approval!!!
