    Contemplating this upgrade....

    Not too worried about the extra types of processing that it does I have only the std setup with speakers for 5.1

    but the extra power and THX certification and it's ability in stereo are more important.

    Is this worth the extra dosh ?

    Anyone pls ?

    I went from a 3801 to a AVC-10SE and the difference was HUGE, and as the 11SR is about two generations ahead of the 10SE I think it would be a good upgrade.

    especially in stereo!

    I always thought the pre-amp section of the 3801 a bit weak, for stereo the 10SE is far better.

    For movies, there is a small but noticable improvement.
