    I am adding a different system here is what I have decided on
    Denon 3802
    Definite technology Bp30(fronts)
    DT CLR2000 (center)
    BP2x (rears)
    2 BP2x for rear center
    PS100 sub
    I was going to to the 4802 for thx ex but decided matrixed would probably sound as good and then just have dts es discrete, so what do you guys think?

    What do you mean? Both receivers do DD 6.1/EX (matrixed), it's just that since the 4802 has THX Ultra certification they decided to call it THX EX instead of DD 6.1/EX.
    Aside from that, your choices look (and mostly likely SOUND) great!

    One thing I am confused thx ex is or isnt matrixed? Will 3802 do 6.1 material in a good fashion?

    It is matrixed and yes the 3802 does it quite well.

    Kevin,
    All of the 6.1 & 7.1 Surround formats (music & movies) are "matrixed" except for one..... DTS-ES 6.1 DISCREET. There seems to be an awful lot of confusion about this lately. Any one disagree with that. To make it easier for those of you who have received a lot of mis-information about surround sound formats in the last few years, write this down for safe keeping. [​IMG]
    My simple definition of Discreet Digital Surround:
    ALL audio channels are decoded directly from the disc's soundtrack.
    DISCREET SURROUND FORMATSas of now:
    * DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1
    * DTS 5.1
    * DVD-AUDIO 5.1
    * SUPER AUDIO CD 5.1
    * DTS-ES 6.1 DISCREET
    That's it!
    Every other surround format not listed above is matrixed, period! [​IMG]
    My definition of "Matrixed" surround sound:
    The artificial creation of one or more audio channels not found on the disc's soundtrack.
    MATRIXED SURROUND FORMATS(sample list)
    (These formats playback between 6 and 8 channels)
    * DOLBY DIGITAL SURROUND-EX
    * DTS-ES
    * LOGIC-7
    * DOLBY PRO LOGIC II
    * TRIFIELD
    This is just a sample of the hundreds of matrixed surround sound formats that exist. Basically whenever you switch to stadium,hall,jazz club or any other surround sound mode like this you are listening to matrixed (dsp processed) sound.
    THX SURROUND-EX and DOLBY DIGITAL SURROUND-EX are not the same thing. [​IMG]
    They employ different decoding techniques to achieve the 6.1 or 7.1 surround sound playback. This is a very common misconception. They are both matrixed formats.(always)
    Thank you, and good night.
