yah, I was just thinking about the wiring, I figured I could hook all the wires up and run them to the proper place so I can just plug in the speakers as soon as they come.

I've been thinking of getting the 3808 too. All this talk about amplifiers and power supplies made be wonder about the 3808.

So I looked it up -- according to Denon's site, the 3808 has 6 separate power supplies. Is this a good thing? Does this go against what others were saying about receivers having only 1 power supply?

Equal Power Amplifiers: 7 ch
Low Impedance Drive Capability: yes
High-Current/Discrete Amplifiers: yes
Independent Power Supplies: 6

No, Jamin; there's only one main power supply section for the seven channels of output transistors(which of course would require seven, not six, power supply sections if that was the real meaning instead of being a somewhat misleading use of terminology). All the Denon models, even the bottom of the line which is available for around $200, advertise "independent power supplies". This applies to the several subsidiary functions in the receiver that require power, but again, there's just one main power supply for the output transistors which drive the speakers.
