Current Setup:
Swans Diva 6.1 Front L&R
Swans CS3 Center
B&W 686 Surround Back R&L
Denon AVR-2809CI



It's time to upgrade my receiver. Now please help point me in the right direction. Should I buy another AVR or should I separate them and get a Processor & Amp. My budget is $5000 but I rather not spend all.

Just looking for something that will give me clarity with the latest technology and I'm using it only for movies

As your 2809CI features Audyssey MultEQ XT, you'll want to consider a model with the more advanced MultEQ XT32 which is offered on the new Denon X4000 as well as the current Denon flagship 4520CI from last year. To go the separates route, the Marantz 8801 would be another consideration which also uses XT32. If your theater can support it, you may also want to consider adding Front Wide speakers (via either Audyssey DSX or Neo:X) both of which are also featured on all three of these models.




The new X4000 is discussed in the last link in my sig while the 4520CI and 8801 each have their own Owner's threads.

For amp, I'm thinking maybe Outlaw Audio 7200

Just looking into processors now....will check out the Marantz AV8801


Are Outlaw Audio good products or should I look at others?
