    I haven't heard the Denon 3802 (probably in a minority on this forum!!) - I have the Marantz 5200. But I do have a Cyrus 7 amp and IMHO it is mega. The sound is amazing - very detailed and clear. I think that you are likely to love it.

    Let us know when you get it.

    thanks for reply wsd glad you like it, will be a while untill i recieve c7, if you are using c7 for sterio in conjuntion with 5200 for av,the only bugbare is the "jugling of 2 voliume controlls) and remembering to turn volume on c7 back to (0) after using with av,

    Hi,

    I must admit I was toying with the idea of seeing what it was like using the Cyrus 7 for the front pair - however, it couldn't be permanent as the TV + 5200 are in a sitting room at the back of the house and I bought the Cyrus for the front sitting room.

    Still - Cyrus is v. good.

    I think you've gone the right way with the Cyrus.

    I had a Denon 3801 before upgrading. Great for movies, and although it was thought to be one of the better AV amps for music it still wasn't a patch on a budget Hi-Fi amp.

    The difference in wattage between AV amps and HiFi amps isn't really a problem - HiFi amps give more current. My old Cyrus 1 was 30W.p.ch. but 40 Amps, so it played real loud.

    Regards
