The only significant difference I can see that 3802 brings to the table is DPL2. Now that the Denon 3801 is available hundreds less than the 3802, is DPL2 really that much better than Neo? I have some experience with DPL2 on my Onkyo 626 used as a pre/pro but don't have much experience with the newer Denons. DPL2 is pretty effective for movies on the Onkyo but so wasn't my Sony ES w/out this format. I never cared for DPL on my Denon 3200 so need to know if Neo is going to be pretty close to DPL2 and therefore acceptable for stereo and DPL movies off satellite and laser. What about sonic performance using the internal D/A, analog bypass, and 6/7 channel input. Is the 3802 better or worse? I am interested in transparent analog performance using stereo analog bypass and 6 channel inputs for SACD. Solid D/A using the receiver's interanl DACs would be a big plus for PCM stereo from a CD megachanger. Also, how good is the remote that comes with the Denons and what can be done with the LCD display on the remote. I actually liked the Sony 2-way LCD remote although it was rather slow. Thanks for the input.
