    Good Guys is selling the 1601 for $279 and the 1801 for $299. Is it worth it to get one of these models or just buy the Onkyo 494 for $299?
    I know the Onkyo 494 has Logic II but am I getting a better amp section and sound by going with Denon instead.
    They would be used about 60/40 between home theater and music.

    I would go for the 1801 ... I have the 2801 and the Energy Take 5.2 with the S8.2 and it's flawless.
    Basically, I don't watch VHS really so Dolby II was not a decision factor.
    Check the link in my signature for the setup.
    Listen and then decide.
