You can't help saying it, because the range-topping Denon amp is a monster. It has no less than 10 channels of amplification, each rated at 170w, and with the correct wiring and a few stabs of the remote, you can drive systems in two separate rooms: either two 5.1 set-ups, or one 7.1 rig and a stereo system.</p> <p>With 20-channel preouts on this new 'A' version, add some extra power amps and you could run a four-room system encompassing two 7.1-channel surround set-ups and two stereo.
