    How come the 2800ES is so little talked about? I found an open box 2800ES for $650, the SC-71 for $700 online without Elite warranty (so plus an extended, or get 1223 for same price?), and the X3000 for $850 I believe I know where most would lean, but I would still very much love to hear...

    Hello: I kinda know the answer to this question (set them both up and listen and compare), but I'm looking for any other advice because it won't be as easy as I had originally hoped: BACKGROUND I just had someone set up a multi-source/multi-zone audio/video setup with 8 video inputs/8...

    I've always been a Denon fan and was looking at the X4000. The AV guy who is doing my home theater recommends the Sony instead. Does anyone have experience with the Sony and some idea of how it stacks up against the Denon in terms of sound quality?

    The reason I have $1,000 as a starting point is just from my experience of being a quiet observer of numerous Sound & Vision articles and various other sources, the truly great equipment typically isn't less than $1,000. Functional sure, but maybe not with the audio quality, enough juice to...

    I'll start off by saying I'm a long-time reader, just actually joined specifically to post this dilemma, as I'm trying to pull the trigger on a new unit soon, but the multitude of options and conflicting advice keep me second-guessing. I kind of fell into my current setup during college...

    I've searched the forum as well as both the Sony website and Control4 website, but I can't seem to find an answer to these questions. Based on the product overviews and manuals, these AVRs can control 2 (2800) or 3 (5800) zones and both state that they can control both audio and video through...
