    Is it still worth it to buy this receiver? I can get it for around $1000? How is the upgrade?

    Ryan,

    I thought you could get the 5800...is it the 5700?

    I think the 3802 is in the $800 dollar range which is why I guess I assumed you were getting a 5800 for $1,000.

    I really do not have much knowledge about the 5700. You may want to go to the Denon site and research stats for both.

    Ryan,

    If you're still monitoring your post, I have had the AVR5700 for some time (about 3 or 4 years, since it was first introduced) and love it. It's a great unit, with great audio and video. No problems with it to date. Anything you want to know about it, email me.

    Pete

    I could get a used, but mint Denon 5700 for $800. Should I get it? Is that a decent price?

    I had a 5700 and replaced it with a 3802 when I sold it.
    I'd get the 3802 if I had to do it again. The difference in sound was minimal and I liked having DPLII and the most current features.

    So that would mean that my used 5600 will sound like a NEW 3802, without the new features...Should I take me 5600 back, and buy a 3802 for a bit more?[​IMG]

    Is there a quality difference between the 5 series versus the 3 series (sounds like where talking BMW cars)? Is the 3802's sound, features and price that compelling to ditch a used high-end 5600, 5700, or 5800's?

    I thought they sounded a little different but not enough to where I worried about it. AFter about an hour, I couldn't remember what was different. I was still happy with the sound and the added features of the 3802 so I had no regrets.

    I am very surprised. While the 5700 is a couple of generations behind the 3802, I would believe it would smoke the later at least in 2Ch since it was a flagship receiver! [​IMG]

    Me to. I think the 5600 and 5700 both hae the same amps. I need to hear from more people which is better!! 3801 VS 5600 and 5700 in terms of sound.

    If the sound is pretty close I will get a 3802

    I would get the 3802 because of it's decoding abilities alone. The 5700 was tested at 125W/C all channels driven while the 3801/3802 came in at 95W/C with 5 channels driven. That much difference in power in the real world is hardly noticable. Besides you can always use the 3802 as a pre/pro later with a solid amp.[​IMG]

    I could get a 2802 and upgrade later to a 3803...Does that sound like a good idea??
