    I am looking at purchasing my first receiver and thought that the Denon 1803 at £220 seemed a good choice. I know it is being replaced and not sure if I will need the extra power of the 1804. Does anybody have any views on this receiver? I would prefer Denon (rest of hifi kit and DVD is denon - so wife friendly).

    I have the Denon 1803, and really like it.

    It's hooked upto a 5.1 Gallo set-up and sounds great.

    For that price you can not go wrong.

    The 1803 is a great product, but the 1804 has three upgrades other the 1803.
    1 - 10 watts extra power "always good"
    2 - On Screen Display "for t.v's"
    3 - additional crossover freqency of; 150hz

    additional info
    it weighes, 0.2kg more
    also, it has two surround back channels. Producing 7.1

    am sure i remember other threads where people said they'd found the 1803 for 170-180 quid.. may well be worth searching for ;)

    2 - On Screen Display "for t.v's"

    What would that be and how would it work?

    And this amp is not available for under £200 as I've been looking :-(

    I think the on screen display is for setting up the system and showing what surround formats/volume etc you are changing.

    I am struggling to find one in stock now at £220 so I would like to know where to £180 ones were.

    Dimmy says that hificonfidential is advertising in this month's what-hifi for £169, so give them a call www.hificonfidential.com
    To be sure I would check the magazine first to check which month's issue.

    Out of stock at Empire Direct for a month now, they had about 17 on back order when I called them and I didn't fancy being at the end of that queue :-(

    I was told that they are not ordering anymore. So it could be 17 people waiting a long time.

    I'd expect it'll be around some time next month.

    If I can get the money 'stuff' sorted out, I might have an AVR1803 for sale in a week or two :)

    I'll keep you posted.

    mbbx0bbr - all sales have to be agreed in threads (preferably in the Classifieds forum!) so that moderators can sort things out should a dispute or sales conflict arrive. PM sales are against the trading rules - read these before you try to sell anything on the forums, they're in the hardware classifieds forum.
