I think Denon sounds sort of dead. A very good match would be Harman Kardon AVR receiver refurbed at www.harmanaudio.com. The silk tweeter should nicely mellow out the peaky HF of the H-K.

Thanks. The store I bought the receiver from has an upgrade program. I'm not sure if I am limited to upgrading to only denon's or not but I will check. This is my first receiver and speakers and I think they sound pretty good but I have nothing to compare them with. I think I could use a little more power for HT, since I need to turn it all the way up to -5. What do you think makes the receiver sound dead? Is it the lack of power or maybe the signal processing. This is all new to me. Thanks for your advice.
