    I was interested in this receiver for a while now and have been checking the price of it at crazyeddie.com for the past few weeks. However when i went there today, they don't have it listed and i called in as well and they said they could no longer get it. The price was around $642. Does anyone know of any other online store i can check? any help is greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone knows where i can get a good deal on the 2801 as well. thankx.

    Thats about a hundred dollars less than I've ever saw it so maybe thats why they took it down. I think I paid like close to $850 when I got mine but they have obviously dropped quite a bit, most likely in an attempt to clear before 3802 does the big ole smack down.
    If you can find that price again, I would grab it.

    Youssef; if you really want the 3801 you'd better start moving. While Denon hasn't said anything yet, there is every indication that they will soon (this month or August) replace it with the 3802.
    The 3802 will supposedly add Pro Logic II, a few more watts, vaiable crossovers, a slightly better amp and a few other things.
    Also remeber that Denon only wants you to buy from brick & mortar stores and do not warranty online sales. Do a search on this subject and you should find a few threads about it.

    Try these, they are a little cheaper although I don't know anything about any of them. I was watching Eddies too but I was reluctant to order from them(I know too much about the old stores).

    I just bought one about 2 1/2 weeks ago from sounddistributors in Las Vegas, but they dont have the 3801 listed on their site anymore. The 2801 and 1801 are there.
    hmmm.....
    here is their link if you are interested:

    Crazy Eddie is listing the 3802 for $899.95 already and I can't even get the specs out of the Denon page yet!

    I'd be a little careful buying from crazyeddie.com. I've heard dings... I've heard dings.... Search the vendor/merchant feedback portion of this forum for more info, if there is any available.
    Best of luck [​IMG]
