    Hi folks, it's me back after a long break from the forum

    I've had a Denon AVR-2803 receiver since last November, and although I'm still getting used to the Minutae of it's menu options and settings, I'm very pleased with it.

    One thought occurred to me. Does anybody know what the "true" RMs output in watts is, for all channels driven?

    The reason that I ask this is that I still have my 3 Cambridge Audio P500 power amps from my previous system. These are rated at 65w each and I was wondering if it was worth still using them or stick with the onboard amps?

    Thanks

    The output the 2803 is 90 WPC. However, that won't be all channels driven. If you are using 7 speakers, hook em up!

    It won't give you more WPC but it will give the Denon more headroom for demanding passages for the other 5 channels.

    I would definitely use them. Besides - its fun!
