    The Denon combination is very strong - I am sure you wouldn't be disappointed. ;)

    The Denon setup will probs be better for music too...

    For that sort of money though, you are better demoing and then make your own mind up as your pays the money and you have to live with it...

    I've got the HD7 with a Denon 2805/2910 combination + MS Genies. It is an awsome combination for movies and music alike. I had a demo of the 3910/3905 combination as well, but couldn't rate a difference for the price. I wasn't interested in better connectivity, as I'm happy with component end to end.

    viewer suggest you use an A'Diva for the centre so 3 A'Diva and 3 Micro for 6.1 or 3 A'Diva, 4 micro for 7.1 centre is very inportant in movie sound......
