    I have just taken delivery of a shiny new avc11sr. It replaces my old Sony 940 and the difference in quality is beond belief.

    I know it cost a shed load more, but if people are considering this amp then just buy it, its great.

    My speaker set up is as follows:
    775 Fronts
    77c1 Centre
    773 Rears
    M52's Rear back
    REL Q400 Sub

    Would I be better using the 773 as rear backs and using the m52 as the rears? Any thoughts/suggestions welcome.

    Hi

    Great amp, enjoy:)

    About your speakers, the only thing I can suggest is try swapping them around and see what you think, no harm in trying.

    I'm all set to get the AVR 3802. But it's still very tempting to save up and get that amp instead. But ergh...the price. The main problem is that as soon as i buy something that prolific, i would then start to see inadequacies in my setup. The speakers/subwoofer/dvd/tv would always be inferior and i i know that would nag me into wanting to continuosly upgrade.

    I was looking at the 3802 before i realized i could get the 11sr for 1399.00 from Sound & Vision but after they failed to deliver I cancelled order and bought from Krish instead. Same price but delivered next day!

    Depending on the rest of your set up, the 3802 will probably be an excellent choice and im sure you will be pleased with its performance.

    But just how much better is the sound performance of the 11SR?

    I didn't demo the 3802 but everyone speaks highly of it. I suggest you demo them both then decide if its worth the extra dosh. :rolleyes:

    Really confused.

    A small history of Denon amps:

    AVC-A1 - DD only
    AVC-A1D - DD/DTS
    AVC-10SE - 5 Channel amp but 7 channel decoding, THX
    AVC-A1SE - 7 Channel amp with 7 channel decoding (big bro of the 10SE), THX
    AVC-11SR - 7 Channel amp with 7 Channel decoding (big bro of 3802 or small bro to 1SR), THX
    AVC-A1SR - 7 Channel amp with 7 channel decoding, THX, latest model aka Denon's Flagship amp

    Bold amendments mine. The 11SR is far more like the 1SR than a 3802, not even IMO it just is. There are quite a few other differences between some of these (remote power amp switching, assignable power amps (for multi-room/surr.back), updated remote handsets to quote just a few) but they're mostly minor.

    Personally were it my money i would consider a 10se which can be picked up for around £500 these days, even this older product is a superior beast to 3802 (if you can live without PL2 and DTS discrete of which is a real something or nothing as regards available software, you will however enjoy the benefits of THX post processing). I have played with both of these machines and the older IS better! in terms of performance.

    In what ways is it superior? I ony have the space for a 5.1 setup, so is THX useless then? I don't know much about it other than it adds a more ambient rear speaker. Is 5.1 sound improved too? How much better is music playing?

    Does it have a tuner? Will i need a seperate power amp or anything? If the 3802 is sufficient on it's own then surely this must be too?

    And finally, where on earth can you find it for £500?!

    Thanks.
