I've just sold my sony db1070 amp as i'm unhappy with it. I had pretty much decided on the Denon 3802, before i saw the review of the AVC-A1D. But i'm confused. It's quite old now, so is it a bad idea to locate one 2 and a half years after it was released? How does it compare to the 3802 in terms of sound/features? Overkill for my b&w 603/601 speakers? Is it not an ordinary amp? It appears to be a power amp, which i know nothing about. And, anyone know places which sell it at a bargain price? Any other advice or suggestions welcome. Thanks very much.
