    As an elitist bastard-type response with no explanation at all:

    Denon

    I have a 3802 (which I love) but in your case I would go with the 4802.

    I had compared denon 3802 and Marantz 7200 and the Denon was much better.

    I would think that 4802 is better than SR19 but I have only listen to 4802.

    In the Sound and Vision test of the SR-19, it came up way short of spec for multi-channel power. Marantz seems to be a day late and a dollar short these days. The Denon 4802 is the second generation of a fine receiver. Get the 4802.
