    What's the weight of the Denon 3802 as listed in the specifications of the manual?
    denon 3300 105x5 33.1 lbs.
    denon 3801 105x7 37.5 lbs.
    denon 3802 110x7 ?? (hopefully more than 37.5)
    for comparison sake:
    Onkyo 777 105x5 35.9 lbs
    Onkyo 787 100x6 35.9 lbs
    other interesting weight comparisons:
    Denon 2801 90x5 25.4 lbs
    Harman Kardon AVR510 70x5 35.0 lbs
    NAD T-751 60x5 36.0 lbs
    NAD T-761 80x5 37.9 lbs
    all weights as listed by manufacturer's specifications. (I didn't weigh them myself!)

    i imagine its similar maybe a tad heavier than the 3801...do you think they need to go on a diet?

    Maybe a tad heavier due to a bigger power supply (unconfirmed, but seen in a couple of places).

    I was just asking because we all know the story with the new Onkyo receivers being lighter in weight, yet Onkyo claims they have more power output.
    I just wanted to make sure Denon wasn't cheapening out too.
    The Denon 2801 looks like it's 90watts x 5 output is really overstated. It only weighs 25.4 lbs. Check out the weights of the Harman Kardon and NAD receivers in my above post.

    For the record, my Onkyo 696 weighs in at about 29 lbs. I highly disagree with the sentiment that Onkyo "cheaped" out. Go demo one, throw everything you have at it, and then say "Doh" like Homer. I can attest they are just fine. I demo'd it for over 2 hours before purchasing, and it was better 2 hours in than at the beginning. At home it was no different. YMMV, though...

    Be careful what you wish for they may start charging by the pounds, weight that is. [​IMG]

    My Onkyo 787 owners manual
    lists the weight as 36.6 must have
    put on a few oz's since you last
    checked. If weight makes great I
    have a Marantz SR19 listed as
    48.6 lbs feels like 148 but doesn,t
    sound any better or run any cooler
    than the 787 IMO a great value for
    the money.

    thanks Gerard, I got the Onkyo 787 weight figure from the Onkyo website, but your figure makes more sense. There should have been a slight increase in weight when they changed it from 5 to 6 powered channels.
    not sure why the new Denon 3802 lost a pound yet gained 5 watts and a larger power supply.
