Has anybody bought the Denon avr 2803 receiver. It has won a few awards and has the hammerhead sharc 32 bit processor. How does it sound in Multichannel and cd stereo mode, magazine review suggest that cd stereo replay is unrhythmiC, is this true?

I had the 2802 which was a little gem and have heard the 3803 which is also a great amp. I can only imagine the 2803 is pretty darn good also.
TBH, I've yet to hear a 'bad' Denon amp.

Thats good news that puts me at rest as I have blindly ordered the amp on the trust of reviewers and should receive it shortly.

The reviews have all been excellent. I don't think you'll regret the purchase :)~:-)~:smile:

Rest assured your purchase was a good one :thumbup:
I got this Amp a couple of weeks ago and it really is great. I like the styling of it and the sound in comparsion to my old 5.1 Sony amp is just different class.
For CD's i've found the sound more than acceptable, i've noticed details and basslines on songs that i never knew existed. But with movie's, the dramatics, and atmosphere it create's is top draw.
I personally thinks it's a real bargain of an amp, and i'm well happy with mine :clap:
Oh!!, by the way what finish did you go for?? Black, Gold or the new Silver???

I have gone for the Gold finish as that was the only one available for a great £485 on unbeatable.co.uk with an option to buy now and pay in 9 months with no interest. Otherwise I would of preferred the silver one but hey beggars cant be choosy. Thanx for your comments dude, much appreciated. :thumbup:
By the way what Sony Amp did you have STDB......?

I had the Sony STR-BD940, it was a really great receiver. But the Denon upgrade has been well worth it :clap: , make sure you connect your amp to a TV though as this is required for setting everything up.
When will you be getting your amp???
I got it in Gold as well, had to wait for Silver!! :x~:-x~:mad: you got a very good price as well :thumbup:
