I have narrowed down my search to two receivers: Denon AVR-3803 Pioneer Elite VSX-45tx My room is 19x14 My speakers are Paradigm Monitor 11v2 with CC-370. I plan to add Monitor 5v3 for my rear channels and a subwoofer once the dust has seetled from my receiver purchase....which means as soon as I feel it is safe to run another purchase by my wife! When I look at the specs and have listened to the pioneer and the current Denon 3802 I can not find an overwhelming reason to chose one over the other. My use will be divided 80% music (both 2 channel and multi) and 20% HT. I will only use 5.1 with the remaining two amplified channels possibly used for outside speakers...another future purchase. This will be my first and probably last multi-channel receiver purchase and I want to make it a good one. Anyone with experience with these two brands, please give me your thoughts on which way to proceed. Thank you in advance for any input you can provide.
