If we hadn't just ruined it in the title, we could have made a snappy joke out of the Denon AVP/POA-A1HD. "What has two boxes, takes two people to lift and costs as much as a car?" But the AVP/POA-A1HD is no joke--it's Denon's outrageously high-end home theater system, and we really want one.
The A1HD comes in two exceptionally substantial components. The first is simply a pre-amp that costs 5,000 pounds, or about $10,025, and the second part is a a power-amp that goes for the same amount. The pre-amp takes care of all the inputs, of which there are a mind-boggling number. Deep breath: six HDMI, six component, eight S-video, and eight composite. For audio alone, there are five optical and six coaxial digital inputs. Need more? Click.
