I am on the verge of spending $3500 on HT sound. I have a 5.1 speaker B&W setup (P6x2, CCM, 601x2, AS-6 sub) in a 15x16x8 room, and I haven't decided about adding 2 more speakers but I may. I'm replacing a Yamaha 2090/DDP-1 Dolby Digital receiver/decoder, so I'm sure whatever I buy will sound (and be) better. It comes down, as ever, to flagship receiver (probably Denon 5803) vs. separates (probably Rotel RSP 1066/RMB 1095). The Rotel setup lacks a tuner, lacks the two extra channels (which I'm not using yet), and would require another amp to power my second zone. I could use (I believe) the "extra" amp channels on the Denon to do the second zone. I also am still using an older 50" 4:3 Toshiba (50F60, I think), so the universal video (composite to S) is a plus for me. Most of what I read, here and elsewhere, seems to have a large subjective component. Apart from finally "moving up" to separates, what ELSE can be said in favor of the Rotel/Rotel combo over the Denon 5803?
