I had a Denon 5803 back in the day and held onto it until 2008 when I upgraded to the Denon 5308ci. I'd only touch this if you have absolutely NO interest in lossless audio, HDMI, 1080p, or room correction. A better choice would be a Denon AVR-3808ci as it has most of the modern features along with legacy inputs. The amp section is weaker than the 5803 but nothing an external amp can't fix.
Denon AVR X7200WA, Emotiva XPR-5, Emotiva XPA-7, Sony XBR 75" 850C, Oppo UDP-203, Roku Ultra.
DefTech BP7000SC (L/R), CLR3000 (C), SM55 (FH), UIW BPZ/A (SB), UIW 75 (TM).
JBL L7 (Sur), EoSone RSR 350 (RH).
PC 2.1 setup. Emotiva Stealth 6, SVS SB16-Ultra sub, Emotiva DC-1 DAC.
