Okay, if I'm following, something like this would be a good path?\n\nCanton SL 596.2 for Front Left and Right (with the free center as center)\nDenon AVR3700H receiver (in place of my onkyo)\nOutboard Amp for Front three (DefTech Promonitor 800 rear and front upper surrounds remain on AVR for power)\n\n\n\nIirc those are 4 ohm speakers so depends on your seating distance and spl requirements you may need an external power amp to assist the AVR-X3700H.\n\nBy the way, ASR has just bench tested the AVR-X3700H and the reviewer reported that he had Denon signed off on it today so you can expect the results to be published tomorrow.\n\nIs there a Marantz and Yamaha AVR that is similar to the 3700? \n\nYes, the SR6015 is the equivalent Marantz model. The SR6014 would be the almost the same except the missing 2020 only features. Based on bench test results, the AVR-X3600H measured slightly better than the $5,000 AV8805 dedicated preamp processor and much better than the $2,200 AV7705 and the SR6014.\n\nSo if the AVR-X3700H measures as good as the AVR-X3600H, it would be among the best measured AVR and AV preamp\/processors ever measured by ASR. That is unless you need balanced connections.
