DENON 5805 need help using as an AMP

Hello, I am and owner of a Denon 5805, shes a old beast missing many new perks.

I moved 5 years ago and head this beast hooked to my HT.

Now I am about to hang drywall in my new basement and need to figure out my plan

Im planning to get a Epson 5030 or 6030 or maybe a JVC of the same price range.

I will be running Paradigm speaker Studio 100s fronts and a 7.1 surround set up (i currently have these speakers), I may add a sub later as I think the 5805 can run 7.2 i cant recall.

So my plan is to run the 5805 as an amp and get a processor of some sort around $2000 max so i can have all of the features currently offered.

specs for 5805

http://www.soundandvision.com/conten...specifications

Does this make sense or should i just sell the 5805. Im not sure i could part with it

Any help or advice on what to get or if this idea is just silly!

Thanks for your time!

Nothing wrong with using it as an amp if you purchase an AVR with pre-outs, otherwise you could also repurpose it as a Zone 2 AVR in another room (eg. bedroom, den, etc.) for either 5.1 surround or 2CH dedicated music listening.

You can do this. The method would be to connect the processors output to the 8 channel input on the 5805, set the 5805 to pure direct and to a fixed volume level (say -20db) that way it is mimicking a power amp (but going through a bit more circuitry than for a power amp). Processors tend to cost as much as a good AVR these days. You might find it best to get a new mid range ARV with pre-outs. You could then run a few tests using the new AVR to power the channels, then with using the 5805 as a sort of power amp as described above.

Does it have dedicated power amplifier inputs? That way you bypass everything, including the pre-amp?

hmm

Into 4Ω (the last measurement taken), however, with seven channels operating, the amplifier's output stages failed, likely due to an internal blown fuse in a high voltage power supply. The front panel remained illuminated and functional, and the receiver continued to produce a signal at its low-level line outputs). The Denon, like many receivers, is rated for operation from 6-16Ω, not into 4Ω But our standard procedure is to test receivers and amps into 4Ω, since the impedance of many popular speakers drops this low, or lower, at some frequencies. As noted in the review, the

Jealous of my speakers?

Any recommendations around the 2 k mark?

perhaps another denon avr

would it make sense to even bother using it if i get something new? what would be the point, better sound quality and more power? easier on the speakers perhaps?

The current Denon flagship model, 4520CI just came off a recent reduction in MSRP under your budget and would be an excellent choice using Audyssey MultEQ XT32.

Jd

What about the new Denon x7200 or the x5200. Seems to be more future ready, maybe a nice partner too a jvc 500 projector with the fake 4k?

I cant seem to find any idea of what the price point would be for the x7200, im going to guess maybe 2.5k to 3k.

I keep fighting between the epson 5030 and the jvc. For half the price i think the epson makes more sense. But i also like the deep blacks on the jvc, I have seen both, they look great.

The Epson seems to preform better with some lights on, pictures looks nice still..

MSRP on the X5200W will be $1999 and $2799 on the X7200W. There is no ideal 4k solution yet as both will not be HDCP 2.2.

Not at this time no especially when there likely won't be any real media for at least 1-2 years.
