    I noticed that the new Denon 2802 does not have the DDSC-Digital featuring Analog Devices SHARC 32 bit floating point DSP processor like the 2800/2801. Instead it has a 24 bit DSP processor. Is it a big deal? I want to upgrade from 2800 to the 2802.

    ummm, when I was researching receivers the 2801 did not claim to have the Analog devices SHARC processor, which is a big reason why I stepped up to the 3801. Where did you see that it did have the SHARC processor? I'm pretty sure it still had DDSC, my older AVR-85 even has it.

    The 2801 did not have the SHARC processor, but it did have Denon's DDSC. There is no mention of DDSC in the 2802 product sheet or owner's manual. It appears that Denon dropped DDSC from this year's 280X series. Disappointing.
    So with the 24-bit processor remaining and DDSC gone, anyone have ideas on the impact on the 2802's sound quality?

    Can anyone give a technical explanation[not the brochure list from Denon],as why DDSC is superrior to any other digital interface,or is it vastly different at all from competing products with different names maybe?
