Default New Receiver Help

I am moving and need to buy a new receiver which can power a 5.1 setup in the main room and also a 2 channel from a secondary room. In a perfect world I would be able to route video to the secondary room as well. I am running paradigm studio 100's in the main room and studio 20's in the other. I was thinking of the Denon 4308. Any thoughts???

The Denon will do fine, I would also consider the Onkyo 905, Marantz 8002 as well.

FWIW I bought the Marantz, but it was a tough call.

I run two HT's in my home, one is the reference rig in the main living area, the second is a smaller bedroom system. Technically their is a third sometimes for the wife's spinervals, but it isn't 5.1, well, most of the time it isn't......

Thanks for the info. What do you think of integra? Also, I was looking at the denon site and was wondering was the main difference between the 4308 and 3808 power?

While the Denon site only shows a 10 watt difference the extra $1000 the 4308 costs gets you better amps.
