    Im seting up a new home system and Im bought the Denon AVR-3801 receiver. Question is what speaker package should I buy? I like the Misson M72 speaker package. Is that goog enough?

    If I get the Misson Speakers, I need a suf-woofer, which suf-woofer should I get?

    Regards<br />Eric

    The amp will be suited to most speaker packages.

    I think there is a rule of thumb that your speaker package should value (roughly) 3 times the price of the amplifier. I am sure I read this somewhere.

    With regards to your Amp the 3802 is out now for £50 more and has DPII

    Stewart,

    wouldn't the speakers be very under powered?

    say if i buy b&W CDM series speakers, 1/3 of the price (of the speakers) would only get me something around/less than a 3801, which is hardly powerful enough for those speakers.

    The Denon 3801/2 will run the B&W speakers ok, as they are low impedance (8 ohms).

    Obviously, better amplification should give you better sound quality.

    Such as the Denon A11SR or the A1SE.

    All depends on your budget.

    cheers

    If the 3801 is £800 and the speaker package is £2000 (Round figures), I am quite sure the amp will drive the speakers with ease.

    105 watts per channel don't think you'll have a problem driving speakers that are mid range whatsoever. An amp running on the cheapest of package will ofcourse work but will it work best. Probably not.
