    Hi, just recently purchased the Denon av3801 just wondering what other people think about it compared to more recent recievers, for example the denon 1905.

    What kind of speakers are most suitable?

    A near-classic, by many accounts. Some prefer it to the 3802. It was an unquestionable class-leader at the time. You'll find it hard to get a fair comparison against modern kit as the newer bells and whistles tend to 'blind' listeners into thinking that modern always equals better.

    hi
    a great receiver,sounds good even in stereo. i had one for several years and it drove any speakers i had,including a kef thx package.

    it may not have all the bells and whistles of say a 3805 but in my opinion it sounds just as good if not better.
