I need a little feedback from you kind people. I am able to get screaming good deals on NAD and Denon products. I could get the 773 for somewhere just over $1100 and the 5803 for somewhere close to $2500.


My HT is going to be a 7.1 setup with speakers either from PSB, Atlantic Tech., Pinnacle, or Rocket. I will also be running a HD feed from my Dish Network.


Some things I need from a receiver are:

1. Can handle 7.1

2. Need at least 3 component video inputs

3. Needs to upconvert (right word?) S and Composite to component

4. At least 3 optical digital inputs

5. Video switching

6. Enough bandwidth in the video channel to handle HD


I think the NAD covers all this but I am a little hazy about what kind of throughput is required to run a true HD signal from the receiver to the TV.


Am I paranoid about the NAD because it is les than half the price of the Denon (for me)? I wonder if it is similar to why folks purchase Bose, the marketing.


Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
