Especially if the switcher is active. I personally would've gone with the 3806 and be done with it.

so lol, no i couldn't have purchased the 3806.

So cool even has a remote control. I use d.v.i. output from my hi-def box, and Denon d.v.d. to the d.v.i. switcher then a d.v.i. to h.d.m.i. cable from switcher to the t.v. This allows me to use the second h.d.m.i. input on my t.v. for a future blue ray player. And use the amp for audio switching, In closing this 3805 I have owned this 3805 for a year and still havent figured out all the adjustments really complex and the only fault I find is the remote control batteries have to be replaced every month anyway post back I would like to hear about your set up what kind of speakers etc good luck stewart

My setup
by malodorous / June 18, 2006 6:27 AM PDT

Denon 3805
Samsung 61 inch DLP
Klipsh reference speaker all around
Velodyne 1000 watt sub
300b tube amps
panasonic dvd s97s
samsung sacd
desktop pc
xbox 360

I bought a spl meter at radio shack to balance the speakers. I think the denon has its own but I prefered to do mine manually. I used the auto leveler for the sub. I haven't gotten the TV professionally tuned yet, lazy lol. As for the remote I use the harmony 880 which simplifies everything so much. The configuration is done on your cpu, very easy!

Now i will check out the switchers you guys recommended!
