I've got a 4300 that I use essentially as a pre/pro with a couple of ATI amps. You may want to consider a nice amp for your mains and possibly enough channels for your center and surrounds (2 to 5 or 7 channels). The advantage to this is you'll always have enough amplification channels so you don't have to buy the extra amplification channels every time you buy a new AVR. We did some blind testing with a couple of systems and couldn't hear the difference between a Marantz 8802 and the Denon 4300 using the same external amps. Just a thought to consider. . .
