Here I go again…..
I believe I’ve narrowed down my choice for the next audio processor to the 3808CI. Before I buy one, I’d like to know how well it plays with the M80’s. And none of that half watt talk Mojo!!
This receiver sounds too good to be true. I just spent the better part of the AM scanning user posts at AVS and there are very few, if any issues being reported. The few that have been reported have been addressed with a recent firmware update too.
Other receivers I have been looking at are:
It would appear the 905 and 8.8 have a more robust power supplies, but they’re crippled with numerous issues that I don’t care to deal with.
The 3808 is lacking THX Ultra (or any THX cert for that matter).
The 3808 has what appears to be a pretty slick GUI that overlays onto HD video. No others have this.
The 3800 lacks Audysey, and I’m an Audysey junky. I wasn’t too impressed with Yamaha’s room EQ.
The 8.8 and 905 incorporate the Reon chip, but that’s a non issue for me. I’ll keep my external Video Processor in the chain.
