    I have an Arcam FMJ - DV27 and a Denon AVC-A1SE ( NOT UPGRADED ).

    I would dearly love an all Arcam set up and in dream world would have the AV8/P7 combo but it is way above my budget.

    I am attracted to the AVR 300 receiver but would be any great loss in performance compared to the Denon?

    Thanks.

    You might not notice a lot of difference, as denon are quite good at prossesing.
    But the 2 channel stereo might be an improvement.
    Although i have not heard the 300, so i could very well be wrong.
    Prob best for you to go have a listern.

    I've stuck with my 3803 as i was only looking for a 2 channel improvement, so i've gone for an A90 to control my front L/R speakers.
    i'm more than happy with the denon for movies at the moment.

    thanks for the advice.

    I have gone for the avr300 and am very happy with it.

    I wanted an all Arcam set up.

    How is the DV89 ?

    The 89 is brilliant for both PQ and SQ and is the best player i have brought yet.
    But as i have mentioned in many a tread.....i hate the layer change, so have gone back to a denon 2900 for dvd and the 89 is just for CD's.

    I may also have a nearly all arcam setup, as am still thinking weather to upgrade my 3803 for a 300.
    i will be keeping the A90 as i think this will be better for 2 channel than the 300.
    But think i will try and get a good long demo of the 300 and see if it really is better than the 3803 for movies.
