    Hi guys

    I was wondering whether it is worth the extra £600 or is the AVR-3802 good enough?...I am looking to use both for Home Cinema and Audio?

    Please help

    p.s. what speakers best suit this, my price range is £1000 for speakers...

    The 3802 will not have the THX processing but the decoding of all new formats around, to improve stereo performance you could add a stereo/2-channel power amp.

    Don't forget that the 10SE will lack some features, mainly DTS Es Discrete (true 6.1), DPL II and THX Surround Ex for DTS Es Discrete.<br />From your post I take it that the 10SE is priced around GBP1200, IMHO too expensive - see below.

    If you think the 3802 isn't good enough rather wait for the Denon AVC-11SR, it offers the same features as the 3802 plus THX processing and 7 channels of amplification, too.

    Yes, that's what I am saying. The replacement, AVC-11SR, will have all those features.

    The AVC-11SR is IMHO essentially the same as the AVR-4802 but without the tuner (radio).

    The Yamaha is not comparable, it's an entry level low budget machine and hence plays in a different league.

    Does that mean that the AVR-4802 is better than both AVC-11RS and AVC-10SE?

    and how much is the AVR-4802?, Can it be obtianed from Totenham court road?

    The AVR-4802 is essentially for the American (etc) market where they like a built-in tuner (thus isn't normally available in the UK) whereas the AVC-11SR is for the European market etc. What I'm saying is, forget about the AVR-4802 as even if you could get it, US radio operates on different frequencies etc to the UK. Doesn't it? <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">
