    As this is my 100th post, i thought i'd make it a serious one !!!

    i'm planning on buying an AVR3802 - i am purely interested in movie sound quality. I rarely play CD's - if i listen to music, it is generally via the music channels on digital tv.

    my question is this - i will be paying £500+ for a product packed with features - 50% of which i will have no use for........i couldnt care less about audiophile 2 channel sound - i have no need for loads of DSP modes - i dont want a tuner..........all i want is seven channels of amplification and DD5.1 / 6.1 / ES / DTS / etc processing. (do i really need this if my DVD player has on board de-coding)

    is there a pre / power combo, within my price range which offers purely cinematic quality without the extra baggage of trying to be "all this to all men"

    i appreciate that this type of stuff is available, but unfortunatley i cannott afford the scary prices that high end kit demands

    ideas people

    For a little more ca$h you can get yourself a Denon 3803 :)

    If you're looking at sub-£700 and want 7 channels of amplification, you probably have to accept that whatever you buy will appear to have a lot of features that you'll never use.

    Possibly. I've got a Denon AVD-2000 Pro-Logic & Dolby Digital processor- bought for £115. Add a 5 channel poweramp - 2nd hand as well, and it (might) be better than a £700 AV amp.

    You won't be able to get a processor/poweramp for that price (new)

    If you're not bothered with 2 channel music, get a AV Amp.

    You will want to use the AV Amp/Processor instead of the DVD player's own decoder.

    Take a look at the Pioneer 1011. Right in your price range and should give everything you are asking for.
