    i am really stuck on deciding what to get, i am about to upgrade my sony strdb2000 and i'm looking for a good amp to match my denon 2900 and kef 5005's, my shortlist is the denon 3805 as i believe this would be a good match with my dvd or a pioneer vsx ax5ai-s.

    Any suggestions? :lease:

    Both the Denon and the Pioneer are excellent AV amps and either 1 you will be more than happy.
    I know you may have heard this one before but the best way is to demo them both and let you're ears be the judge.
    I used to own the Old AX5i and the pioneers do tend to be alot brighter than the Denons which have a warmer sound.

    I thought I was decided on my selection of receiver.
    I was going for the 3805.
    Now I am undecided again.

    The equipment I currently have is Pioneer DV-656A DVD Player.
    I have just ordered Sky+.

    The Equipment I am going to order is,
    Acoustic Energy AElite 5.1 Speaker package.
    Pioneer 50MXE1 Plasma.(Probably)
    Either Arcam Diva CD73T or Roksan Kandy MKIII CD Player.

    Which, in all your valued opinions, is the more suitable,
    the 3805 or the AX5AI.
    Thanks.
    Johnny.

    CAn you use i link/firewire with your DVD player as that might be a deciding factor. You get HD audio with it.
