On paper, the Sony 2 ES has all I need. Is it worth spending the nearly $200 more for the 3802?
I would wait to hear some reviews on the new Sony's before making a decision.
At $699, the 3802 is already ~40% off, I'm not sure it will go that much lower.
I would wait for some reveiews and an in person listen also.
I'm still not sure how much less the '3802 will. $699 for a new '3802 is the exception, not the rule. 6th Avenue Electronics has been selling the '3802 for $699, but many other authorized dealers, including Crutchfield and Tweeter are stills selling it for $1000. We'll see what happens, but I doubt the '3802 will drop to $485.
Greg gives good advice. The 'DA2ES isn't out yet, so no one can provide advice on which way to go.
OB and private sales are not the same as brand new from a retailer, but I can see one going for around $500-$600 maybe. Damn thing is less than 1yr old.
Also consider Sony's equivalent model (pricewise) to the 3802 if the 2ES proves to be insufficient. The Sonys have it all over the rest of the lower end market for bass management and may turn out to be sonically competitive.
