I upgraded my speakers to a deftech combo of BP2000TLs, C/L/R 3000, and BPVX/Ps. I have a pretty low end sony avr and dvd player. I think I've decided on the Denon 3800 dvd player to replace my old one (if other dvd/dvd audio players in this rough price range are any better, please suggest some alternatives). I'm torn, however, about a pre/pro and amplifier. What suggestions for roughly $5000 would get me the best features and cleanest sound? Any suggestions are appreciated, and thanks in advance for any advice you can give me. In just the last 6 months since I've started hanging out on this site, I've learned much more than my wife thinks wise about home theater. Thanks again for all the great advice.
