    I heard it was on the shelves in Canada. Is it available in the US yet? Any thoughts or opinions?

    My dealer said he'd have it this week, because last week when I asked him, he said a batch was in transit. But he had 15 DV-47A's backordered, and it sounded like he couldn't get any more, so it might be a while before we actually can lay eyes on one! [​IMG]

    I've had a DV-45A for a week now.

    I can't comment on its DVD-Audio or SACD playback because (a) I don't have any disks yet, and (b) my old receiver doesn't have 5.1 passthrough inputs.

    In another couple weeks I should be able to remedy that.

    I beleive the 47A have been replaced with the 47Ai.
    That is why he might have a hard time getting them.

    I've had a 45A for a week. It's been excellent. Great on DVDA, SACD, CD, and video quality. I haven't had any problem with bass output like others have reported.

    >> Speaker Levels set to "fixed"

    I think you'd want that changed to variable, so you can adjust levels, right?

    Brian, all of my settings are the same as yours except my digital out is turned on so my 3802 can decode DD EX and DTS ES. I adjusted the levels on the 3802 with the Sound&Vision disc and a Rat Shack sound meter with the 45A set to fixed output. My sub level is set at -1.
    I have Klipsch RF3-2, RC3-2, RS3-2 and a 12" Dayton DVC with a 250 watt Parts Express amp. Hope this helps.
