I'd LOVE a 5803 for about $600, but that may be a bit hard to find

I don't know if you saw my response to your other post, but the 5300 is not specifically rated for 4 ohms. I just received mine today, and the rear panel does say 6-16 ohms.
While I suspect you could drive 4 ohms at modest levels, I am almost certain the unit could not supply the current to sustain anywhere near rated 8-ohm power levels with multiple 4 ohm speakers...
Sure would have been nice in my situation if the HK 520 had a 6th amplifier channel and Dolby Digital EX, or if the 525 had a full array of main inputs. If you don't care about those aspects, I think the 320/520 and 325/525 are great choices, too.
