I am getting set for an upgrade to my home theater, and right now I'm trying to decide between the Denon 4802 and the Onkyo 989 for my receiver. Both satisfy my basic needs: DPL2 and all the newest surround modes, 3 sets of component video inputs, and at least 3 optical digital inputs. But I have not heard either of them, and an in home audition is not an option, as I plan to buy from a local retailer (with a 6 or 12 month payment plan--I need DPL2 and I need it now!). For speakers I will ultimately have Paradigm Studio 40s for fronts and surrounds, and Paradigm Titans as rears (I might upgrade these to Studio 20s). My receiver at the moment is a Marantz SR-7000, which has a sound that I thoroughly enjoy. I recently began to use it's 5-channel stereo mode with music, and it really has whet my appetite for the potential of multi-channel music, which makes it essential that I upgrade to DPL2. I love the warm sound that the Marantz produces, and I'd like to improve upon that sound with DPL2 and one of these receivers. So which to choose? I know that the Onkyo is upgradable, but on that note I'm curious if that really is an issue for me. I'll likely be moving up to separates in a few years, so unless in that time some critical new format comes along, I should be set. So I guess it comes down to sound... which receiver wins in this category for music? For movies? Thanks for any help you guys can offer.
