    I am beginning to build my first true HT and would like some advice in where to purchase the Denon AVR-1803. I have basically decided that I will purchase the components seperately. My first buy will be the receiver and then I will buy the speakers and sub. I have searched many different online stores, but am unsure which stores are the best. I've gone to www.resellerratings.com, however a lot of the retailers aren't listed. I am looking for a combination of price and service. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Bill

    Jerry,

    Thanks for the reply. AVSurvey was exactly the kind of site I was looking for.

    Please note that Denon does not honor warranties from non-authorized dealers. Their web site gives a list of authorized online and local dealers. Get it cheaper if you want, but beware that they might not fix it for free if it breaks.

    So if I choose to go with an authorized dealer I will have to pay full retail price, but I get the security of a full warranty. That makes the buying process a lot more complicated: cost vs. security.

    Thanks a lot Curt!

    I just ordered the Denon from Reliable. I've taken my "first step into a larger world."

    Thanks to everyone for their help.

    Any suggestions for a good set of speakers to compliment the Denon? I am looking at Home Theater Direct Level 2's, but would greatly appreciate any feedback for you folks. My price range is unfortunately low: 500-700 for a 5.1 speaker set.

    Anyone have an opinion (good or bad) on the Polk RM6200 with a Polk PSW250 sub?
