I am in the process of researching both an HDTV purchase and a receiver upgrade purchase. I have my HDTV question posted in the appropriate forum (feel free to check it out and add an opinion), but need a little help with my receiver research. I am considering the following three receivers: Denon AVR-2802 Pioneer VSX-D810S Pioneer VSX-811S (I know it's not due until at least April) The Denon has a great list of features (DDEX, DTS-ES Discrete and Matrix, DPLII, DTS-Neo) and a price of around $550 at various place online. The Pioneer 810 can be found for around $300 but only has DDEX and DTS-Matrix. The Pioneer 811 will have the same features as the Denon when it is released. I guess my first question is how does Denon compare to Pioneer? Secondly, is DPLII really that big of an improvement of DPL? Third, are DTS-ES Discrete and DPLII worth the additional $200?
