    Denon 2802

    Or is it the Marantz 4404? lol. Just kidding.

    Read a review in I think it ws SGHT of several front runner receivers at less than 1K entry price.

    The Denon jumped out at me, supporting 6.1 processing, DTS-Discrete, Neo, even DPL2! I was shocked, here a receiver less than 1000 bucks that does all the major processing, except THX. you don't get THX, rather some generic theater mode. Even component video input. Boy if I was looking for a lower priced receiver today, I know where I would go!

    Remote control is a little clunky they say, but does have night glow for a few important keys, and of course I think analog outpus for the future.

    Were I looking at processing today, hmmm, 6,000 for an MC-1, or something like this to take care of my theater processing. Tough call. I love my MC-1, but can't see myself dropping that kind of cash on a pre-processor again anytime soon.

    When your shopping, take a peak at the 2802, you may just be pleasantly surprised, especially at it's on-screen menu.

    There are a few other entries in this price range, but none that offer more for less that I am aware of.

    As they review said as well, DPLII is an important processing consideration, due to all the matrixxed recordings out there, including DPL material on TV.

      Wow, she's purdy. One very nice thing on the 2802 is the variable crossover, though I wonder why they chose to start at 80 and go 100 and 120. I'd start it at 60, and go to 100. I beleive the 3802 starts at 60.

        Perhaps they feel like purchasers of a 799 receiver are more likely to have satellite speaker systems, and thus the higher crossovers made sense?

          Denon are good at offering value at a reasonable price. When I bought the 3801 it was the only receiver offering 6.1 and all the other things the 2802 now offers , and at that time the price was $1100 US or less . Nothing else came close to it at the time. Now we see the 2802 that will probably street somewhere around $500 to $600 US. Now that's value.
