Default Trying to Decide on Receiver

I generally update receivers 8 to 10 years..
It has been 8 years and it is between Onyko 875,Yamaha 3800 or Denon 3808.
Can anyone tell me something about these receivers if you own one and what
your take is on the receivers likes and dislikes..
I usually just run out and do not do my homework and this time before purchasing
I want to try and be happy with my receiver purchase..
Thank You and Happy New Year to all..Joe

Well check out This thread for my review on the Denon 3808ci
I compared all the receivers in that price range I could get my hands on before deciding on the Denon.

Between those three there is only one choice... the Denon.

I Looked (and listened) at the ones you listed, plus the Pioneer recievers. I chose the Denon 3803ci and have no regrets.

No ones asked what speakers you'll be using or, maybe more importantly, what impedence these speakers are rated at. What other features are important to you. etc...

Judging from the lack of information you given, just claiming "denon" is a huge disservice.

Well I trust watt ratings on Denon more than the other brands mentioned. They pretty much all share the same features too.

Plus I don't think claiming "Denon," as a choice over Yamaha and Onkyo is a disservice.

There aren't any good high end Receivers to mention in comparison. NAD, Arcam, Outlaw and others don't have HDMI 1.3 with nextgen audio codecs available right now.

I sure hope Outlaw changes that soon. I love pointing people towards their products.
