    hi
    i have a denon 3801 which i wish to upgrade,(its on ebay) and being a denon owner for the last few years, thought its now time to buy the new 3805, but looking through some of the coments on this forum about the 3805 has made me start to think, that maybe its time to look at other makes.
    I have about £1200 to spend, can anyone recomend a receiver in this price range? i do like the pioneer ax5i, but it is being replaced in october by the ax5ai, dont think i can wait till then!.
    thanks
    kinza.

    The Ax5 is superb IMHO. Especially if you can match it with a Pioneer iLink player. Brilliant amp with a really great remote and totally intuitive.

    The new Arcam AVR300 could be an option as well.
