    Lightning killed my Denon 2801. I think I'll replace it with another brand because it had a few problems anyway.
    What is the best for about $600.00?
    thanks

    I just ordered and HK520. It lists for $899, but I got it from onecall (authorized HK internet dealer) for $639 plus 25 shipping. You can go listen to it at Circuit City. It's awesome!!!! I've been researching for about 6-12 months and was going to get the Integra until all of the recent issues about their 'less than desireable' power supply causing very low 5.1 mode power ratings.

    I have heard the HK and it does sound better than almost any other popular brands. I would have most likely bought an HK to begin with except I heard they had quality problems. Turns out Denon wasn't that great either.
    I just don't want any problems, I don't want to listen to the wife.

    You have to call them. Or you could email them and tell them what I got it for. They are not paid on comission and are great people. Mine should be here tomorrow. Ordered it Wednesday night and it didn't move on the 4th. Not bad coming from Washington state to SC.

    I second the 520. Also consider the Marantz 5200/6200/7200 depending on your budget tolerance and authorized dealer or not, as the case may be.

    The Denon 3802 for 699.99 is the deal of a lifetime. It's a must buy!
