I have an older Denon AVR-3805 and I love the sound this thing can produce. The quality of sound from the analog 5.1 is awesome but while the Burr-Brown decoders were state of the art in it's day, that was 15 years ago when all of this was more or less in it's infancy! I was told that the decoders now have come a long way since that and while I don't know it for a fact, it only makes sense that such is the case. Is it possible to upgrade the decoders in an older Denon AVR or are there external decoders one can use and somehow connect to the older AVR? I don't want to get rid of my Denon AVR 3805 - the sound is just awesome (nor could I afford to as I've since retired; that AVR cost me about $1200.00 fifteen years ago, I can't even imagine what the new top of the line models cost!!). Any input/suggestions most appreciated. (Just a note: you guys are an impressively knowledgeable bunch! I tried using other sites only to get dumb advice from people who knew less about the subject matter than I did!)
