Just bought B&W 803's and have been looking for surround receiver. Music is first priority and have had retailers suggesting Arcam 300, B&K 507 and Nad 763 or 773. Can lesser priced boxes drive these speakers? ie-Denon 3805 or comparable.
I had the same question but for 603's here are the responses I got. I went for the T773 and have not looked back. I hear sounds that I never heard with the H/K AVR500 it replaced. People will tell you to go the separates way, which was not an option for me due to space restrictions.
The B&K will work, I have listened to that combo a few times before at a customer/friends house and was very impressed. I have a B&K AVR507 and am considering the 703's, but I'm also looking at the new Lexicon receiver.
