Will the Denon 3802 be a good match for my Pardigms in both power and sound?

    I'm wondering if a Denon 3802 will do my Pardigm set up justice? I have:
    Monitor 11 x 2
    Mini Monitor x 4
    CC-370 x 1
    and eventually I'll get 2 SVS 20-39+.
    My first question is will this amp be able to power my 7 Paradigms at the same time without doing any damage to them? Second, I've never heard a Denon receiver, would it pair well with my speakers sound wise? Are they a good match for each other?
    Also does anybody know if there is going to be a replacement for the 3802 anytime soon?
    Thanks!

    my 3802 drives my studios 60's, cc & adp's effortlesly.
    you shouldnt have any problem. quite the oposite. this unit has more than enough, will make you forget what you just asked...(unless you have an exeptionaly big listening area.)

    I'm driving adps and monitors with a PS1200 - with a 1601, and it does a great job! Denon and Paradigm seem to go so well together, and the 3802 will do a wonderful job for you! Good luck!

    I'm driving Studio 20's, Studio-CC, and Titans in an average listening area with a 3801 (5 wpc less than the 3802). Clean power is way more than sufficient. And it is a good sonic match.
