I already have a Denon AVR-3802 on order (from a local authorized Denon dealer). I paid $899.96 w/ no sales tax. I can't get the Sony DA5ES locally for anything under $1100 After doing some more research - it appears I can get the Sony DA5ES for something just under $1000.00 via the net - and I have even heard that some folks have gotten it for $900-$925 shipped. Is the Sony worth the extra $100-$200 - If it is, I'll likely go with that model. I have a Denon AVR-3300 currently - but previously I owned the Sony DB-930 and was very happy with that model. So - I'm pretty equal to both Sony and Denon. I will say that the Sony looks nicer than the Denon IMHO anyway. And the Sony weighs a ton!!! Seems like it's got a very good build quality. I like the Denon also though...I'm very torn! So, which one would you purchase and why? Thanks for any info!
