    Default Denon AVR-1905 (785) in the house

    Okay, just received my new Denon AVR-1905 a few days ago and have hooked it up and given it a preliminary run....very impressed so far with the capabilities of this unit, especially considering the price ($499 retail, I got it for $206 incl. shipping on ebay...but from a liquidation company (appeared new open box)...so far so good...seems to work great). Even at retail this is a formidable unit though, with more features than (I believe) any receiver at this price.
    Example: 80w x 7, video upconversion to component video, A/B speaker switching, assignable 6th and 7th channels (can be either powered zone 2 or rear center surrounds) and of course all the latest processing...PLIIx, DTSes, DD EX blah blah blah. The best thing is I can run 3 stereo pairs simultaneously...which I have never found another receiver to do (I'm sure some can, but not at this price). And although it doesn't sound quite as warm as my old HKAVR525 (which has gone off to ebay land since it wouldn't fit it the wife's new smaller cabinet that I am having to live with...at least without catching fire) it still sounds very good with music. And the champagne color of the thing is growing on me too. I think this may be a receiver I can live with for awhile.

    Yes, I was pretty much resigned to going back to 2 channel only but couldn't resist the deal...I only have a DOA warranty on the unit though so am keeping my fingers crossed.
