I am in the process of deciding on a new receiver to upgrade my home system. I am looking for the new receiver to have extra audio inputs for SACD or DVD-A DPL2 $600-$800 price tag in addition to regular features (DSP, etc) I am currently looking at the Denon 3802 and the Onkyo 696. I am biased to Denon b/c I currently own one. That being said, I am wary about Denon not honoring the warranty if I bought the 3802 from an online retailer. I am not sure if Onkyo honors its warranty if it is purchased from an online retailer. Both are within the above price range from online dealers. My listening habits are 80% music and 20% video. I am using Boston Acoustics VR40's for my front speakers, the VR12 for the center, the VRS Pros for the rear and the 75 watt sub (I can't remember the model number offhand). I have read good things about both the Denon 3802 and the Onkyo 696. Opinions and insights are most welcomed. Thanks.
