    one is the familiar one that includeds the 1602,1802, etc... and the other can be found in the specialty audio line and starts out with the 682, 882,...all the way up to 1082. Are these two lines physically identical? If they are then u can save about 10-15 percent and this puts the 1082 which could be the equivalent of the 3802 at less than $700 without shipping.

    I think you are correct. The 1082 and the 3802 are the same. I have seen people list them on ebay saying the same thing.

    I've often wondered the same thing, the only thing that I notice different is when reffering to the Denon 1082 they only mention how many watts per channel with 6 ohms and never 8 ohms. Does this mean it can't support 8 ohm speakers? And are there any authorized dealers that sell the 1082?

    they only say 6 ohms to make the power ratings look higher onkyo does the same thing,running 8 ohmns will
    be fine.
    And are there any authorized dealers that sell the 1082?
    james
    ABC Warehouse sells them but if all think best buy's
    sales people are bad wait til you meet these dim bulbs
    i went in there looking at a onkyo 797 and the person waiting on me(the "head" of the audio dept. didn't even know what the pre-out was for and what it is [​IMG]

    I went to a true "high end" store (they carry Revel, Sonus Faber, Classe, etc...) that is the only authorized Denon BM in my area. I was looking at the 1802. They told me that they were having a hard time getting the 1802 at that time but they would sell me the 882 for the same price since it is exactly the same receiver. It was actually a pretty good price for a BM at around $430. Most places you can find the 882,982,1082 cheaper however I noticed that Reliable Audio has the 1802,2802 cheaper than the 882,982.
    If you want an 1802 I have 2 words for you 6th Ave. This has been discussed on several threads here. 6th Ave Audio is an authorized dealer and will work with you. Steve is mentioned often and I worked with Chris. They gave me a price on an 1802 way below what I expected and it was shipped the afternoon that I called.

    Steve,

    what did 6th ave quote you on the 1802. I am very interested in that one but the best i found so far is close to 400 shipped. I can save about 30 bucks by going with the alternate version the 882.

    YES! They are IDENTICAL, THE SAME, EXACT COPIES, DUPLICATES etc...etc...etc...
    Only the model number is different!!!!
    If you want proof go to the Denon USA hompage and check out the Home Audio products and the Speciality Audio products. The spec. sheets for each one will bear this out.
    If you have Adobe Acrobat reader here is the pdf. spec sheet for the 3802 HERE
    The 1082 is HERE
    If you have questions about the power ratings on page two of the spec sheet they both are shown as:
    8ohms - 110 W
    and
    6ohms - 150 W

    Thanks for the link Steve. I know the Denon 3802 can be had for $800 at 6th ave. but I may go with the 1082 if it's the same thing for less money.

    My question is why is the Denon 1082 less then the 3802, what's the point of the 1082?

    What authorized dealer sells the Denon 1082?

    Whoops I forgot I asked this in a post above. My bad.

    james
