    Does anyone know of a good comparison chart to easily see the differences between these different models. I know the 525 is an older model, but what are the main differences between these aside from power?

    Here are a couple of differences off the top of my head:

    The 525 allows for bass management of the 7.1 analog input. The 330 does not.

    The 525 has a triple bass crossover (front, center, surrounds) where the 330 has quadruple crossover (front, center, l/r surrounds, back surrounds).

    How does the 525 compare to the Denon 3803? The Denon is about $80 more for a refurb, but I like the much wider selection of inputs and the up-conversion to component. The one thing I think I'd miss from the 525 is the Logic 7, but I'm not really clear on how that works. Is it just used to create 7 channels from a stereo or DPL source? Does the Denon not have anything like it?

    Lexicon which is a subsidary of Harman/Kardon created the Logic7 and they are the only to use it and probably will be the only to ever use it. It basically creates a 7 channel source from any 2 channel signal.

    Some people say it sounds better than DPLII and I am one of those people who prefer Logic7 over Dolby PLII.

    Everyone will have there own view of how it sounds and wether they like it or not..

    As for Denon, they just use DPLII and DTS:NEO6 I believe...

    HK as far as I know is the only one who has something unique like Logic7.
