    I was just wondering if anyone knew the difference between these two receivers (Denon AVR-2802 and AVR-982). From what I understand, the 982 model is sold by companies like Sears, and the 2802 is sold by audio stores. The only difference that I can find out there is that the 982 is 135 Watts into 6 Ohm only, whereas the 2802 is 90 Watts into 8 Ohm and 135 Watts into 6 Ohm. My speakers' impedence is 8 Ohms. One reviewer said that you can select 8 Ohm on the back of the 982, is this true? The 982 is slightly cheaper also.

    It's the same receiver. Denon just rebadges them to sell to retailers so they don't have to go thru the "authorized dealer" process.
