Hello I do own Klipsch set 5.1 ( 2x F-30, 2x S-20 , 1x C-20 + sub-12HG )

 

What will be the best A/V receiver for those? I do have budget up to $2000. I'm owned Denon 3803 but it died, thanks for help.

As you are familiar with Denon, you may want to consider the current flagship and successor model to your 3803, the Denon 4520CI.

I don't know where you did your review reading - I'd read the 4520 owners thread to find out more information.

You might also look at the Yamaha Aventage line of AVRs.

Personally I think you could get an $500-800 AVR that will drive your Klipsch just fine. I sold a Yamaha HTR-7065 AVR to my nephew - he has Klipsch RF-52 fronts with the RC-52 center and RS-52 surrounds. That Yamaha does an excellent job of driving his speakers. The 7065 has preamp outs in case you think you don't have enough power.

When all else fails - RTFM!

As Knucklehead90 suggests ... read what actual owners are saying in the 4520 Owner's thread vs. what some reviewer has said. More often then not, these professional reviewers have no clue how to use Audyssey which is one of the best selling features of this model.

No reason to go all the way to the 4520CI if the X4000 features meet your requirements as they both offer the same more advanced version of Audyssey MultEQ XT32.

Yes I think it does. I'm apple person so it have airplay and power is more then my old Denon. Do you know little more about hdmi cables what kind to get? If I need to get ones with 15.8gbps or just 10gbps will be ok? Just need to hook up to receiver (probably to Denon x4000) comcast box, macmini, ps3, all wih hdmi. I read today some newer hdmi cables have also ethernet so I dont need to run extra ethernet wire from router if new hdmi cables can trasfer also internet connection.

As long as the HDMI cables are rated as "High Speed" that's all you need. There's no reason to pay for the more expensive HDMI w/Ethernet cables as there are currently no devices on the market that can use them. If you are in the USA, forum sponsor Monoprice has very good quality cables at a very reasonable price.
