    What is the best AV receiver for MOVIES with ES/EX discrete capability and 6 or 7 amp channels? Also in the price range of the Denon 2802 and 3802 ($700.00 to $1200.00 US dollars). I'm concerned primarily with it's home theater (movie) capability. It will be matched with 6 Paradigm Reference Studio 20's, a Studio CC and Paradigm PW2200 sub.

    The Sony STRDA 5 ES is in that price range I beleive.
    It has ES discrete and 6 channel amplification.

    I have the 1070 which is 2 models below and I am extremely happy with it.

    What about the Marantz 6200 or Onkyo 787 & 797? I'm not fond of Yamaha or Sony amplification, seems like their dynamic range is limited....flat for soundtracks???
