I may need to replace my Denon AVR 987 (2807). I prefer to stay with Denon. Please recommend a equivalent or better featured model. I will most likely buy it from Best Buy.

Depends on what features/inputs/outputs you need as well as your budget of course. Although the 3312CI is the successor to the 2807CI, you could be just as well served with a 2112CI if you don't need the additional features offered by the 3312CI (ie. preouts, dual HDMI outputs, Zone 3, etc.). Review post #2 in the Denon XX12 Owner's thread linked in my sig for a comparison of the various models. Note however, that the new XX13 models are due to be announced in the next few weeks and released in May/June so you may want to wait to see what they offer.

If you're going to buy it from Best Buy for one reason or another you are probably going to be best off waiting until the xx12 models hit clearance any day now. Displays will be even less.

Only way to get a Denon at a decent (sometimes excellent) price at BB.

1712 would be the minimum to replace a 2807. Weaker amp, but Audyssey XT which is an upgrade.

Thanks. Audessey doesn't work for our very, very irregular snapped room. I'd not prefer a weaker amp. Hopefully, there is nothing wrong with our 987. Time and tests shall tell.

It's unlikely you would notice the difference in power between a 90W AVR (1712) and 110W AVR (987). Also note that Audyssey is not likely working well as it was not setup correctly. Follow the instructions provided in the Setup Guide linked in my sig.

Re setting up my avr 987 and curious if anyone really gets to most out of this unit. Any tips or simple changes you might suggest? I like keeping all outputs around 0.0 db as far as levels and have some new 5.1 speakers coming so all will identically match(95 bd). Will also use a pair of subs.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Better to post in the Owner's thread. Also review the Audysey 101/FAQ guide.
