    Ok, now that I decided to buy the 4802, I've gotten second thoughts about the 5800. I know there is to be an upgrade for the DPL II processing, and the look inside of the 5800 makes it seem TREMENDOUS when compared to the 4802, so I wonder if the extra power in the amp section and the upgrade-ability is worth an extra $700+?
    HELP me decide...please.
    What ya'll think?

    IMO, Doug, yes...it is worth the extra $.
    But I am saying this blind, as we all would be. No one has seen or reviewed the new 4802 as it's not avaialble yet.
    If I were you, I'd wait to make the decision until the 4802 is a available as well as the upgrade path of the 5800 being laid out.
