I've already answered the question in the general case when I bought my 4802... but now a more specific case. I've got a fairly small apartment in LA and I need a fairly small system. Within the year I will move this system out of my apartment and into my bedroom back home so I don't know if I will have room for 6/7 speakers. DVD-Audio and SACD are 5.1 and even in my 7.1 system I rarely notice my surround backs. I'm mostly music (2 ch) while I'm at the apt and this will probably be a mostly music when it's in my bedroom. Can anybody recommend some good 5.1 dd/dts/5.1 input receivers? It'd be nice if they had dpl2, but I figure dpl2 mostly comes with the newer 6.1/7.1 receivers. I'd say this is for a 70%music/30%HT system. I'm sure if I settle for last year's models or older I can find some really awesome deals on a good 5.1 receiver.
