    Thanks for the info, this confirms what I was told at the NY show by Denon.
    It appears that the 2 channel surround backs can be used as a separate multi zone amp in another room. Which means if you set up only 5.1 and used the back 2 channel amp for another room you would not need a separate amp. Do you read tha same thing?

    I like the "rattle/clink"
    What is watts 8 OHMs? 90? / .7% rattle/ clink does not make sense for Denon.

    Keeping the phono input.

    What else?

    Norman, the "rattle/clink" I believe is correct.[​IMG]
    The Denon feeding 1 watt at 1Khz into 6ohms yields a .7% THD. This is listed on the specs of the 2802.
    cheers,

    Thanks Chris!!!!!

    I currently have a Denon 1802 and will definitely be moving to an 1803 in August. It looks like one hell of an upgrade, with a better remote to boot, and all for the same 499.00 msrp. It appears that the upcoming 1803 has replaced the 2802 at its price point. this just makes me wonder what the new specs on the 2803 and 3803 will look like.

    ummm...
    guys...
    http://www.hirsch-ille.de/denon/avr3803.html
    same power rating for those two models?
    in fact, I think the whole description is the same.
    and what about that Technics-style power rating?
    6 ohm, 1KHz, 0.7% THD? No way Denon is publishing numbers that way!
    I smell BS...

    Sebastien,

    I think you are correct / 1803 same as the 3803 ?

    Norman,

    However, it would appear that the information listed jibes with what you were told at HES this week regarding the 1803 being more of a 2802. Norman, if you were told that the 3803 wouldn't be available for a few months after the 1803, it is unlikely that anyone would already have specs for the 3803. One of these descriptions is definitely wrong, and I'm willing to bet that it's the one for the 3803. The 1803 description might be CLOSE based on what you have posted, but the technics-style power-rating is definitely wrong. I'll base my knowledge on the 1803 on what Norm reported instead. I'm wondering why someone would publish bogus specs on upcoming receivers (or perhaps someone simply made a mistake posting the specs)?

    Reg,

    Yes, I was told it would be like the 2802 and more.
    It will have 2 back surround spearkers but I was not told that it would have 7 amps ( 2 for the back ) but it might since I was not told how many amps.

    I was told they will release 1803 info in June and ship in August.

    I think you are correct that the specs could be for the 1803. The 2802 is rated 135 @ 6 ohm .7% THD

    Thanks Norm.
    I will be purchasing the Denon DVD-1600 next week which will go beautifully with the 1802/03. I will likely sell my 1802 in the hardware section (I had it listed a few weeks ago and then withdrew it - I literally received a dozen or so offers over 300.00). If the 1803 maintains the 1802's msrp as you stated, then I will be able to upgrade to the 1803 for less than 200.00. Not bad[​IMG]
