After my Sony AV Receiver decided to malfunction, I read reviews in HI-Fi mags and searched the internet for a replacment AV receiver. My budget was £700. I deceided on the Dennon AVR 2802 as my choice as I had previously owned Dennon products. They sounded good and where very durable. After serching for the best price I was able to buy the Dennon for a bargin price for £350, the RRP was £700. The AVR 2802 was set up, and a test DVD inserted into my DVD player, namely Pink Floyd's the wall. The start of this filim is of a cleaner hoovering the hallway, so I crancked up the volume to an indicated +3 as I thought was a resonable volume. Then I got the shock of my life, when suddenly the door to pinks room was opened and I was surrounded by what sounded like a sonic boom then the music exploded arround me, I must have jumped six feet in the air. My wife then came running into the room, thinking something had crashed into the sitting room. This is one heck of a Amplifier it is very versatile and has lots of inputs and an added extra of pre-Amp outputs so you can hook up to a power amp/s if you need to. The front facia looks good and is well laid out, mine is in gold and it looks the part. The remote control looks like a brick, but has the added advantage of learning so you can opperate you other equiptment from the one Dennon supplies. It takes a while to discover all that this Av receiver can do so read the instructions and have a play. There is just about everything you would need with this package, comes highly recommended. Well done Dennon.
