Denon AVR-3805 Company History



This receiver is geared towards the serious home theater enthusiast, while being priced for the (subjectively-speaking) budget-conscious. As you can tell from our more recent reviews, it is possible to achieve excellent audio performance while forgoing separates in favor of the more solidly-built receivers. Your mileage may vary from model to model, but considering all the different components that make up a home theater room, a feature-laden receiver at this price point is mighty attractive. Since the introduction of the Denon AVR-5803 in 2002, Denon has been consistently breaking new ground with its receivers - and this unit is no exception.
