    Title pretty much says it all. I can pick either of these up for around $500. I don't know if there are any authorized Denon dealers that have it for this price, but jandr.com has the HK for $500. Any input would be most appreciated. By the way, I am looking at either Axiom, Klipsch, or the energy speakers if that is of any help.

    Thanks!

    I also second the A520 suggestion

    I was considering the 2802, but ended up ordering a 520. Choice was made primarily on the amp. The HK is 10lbs heavier than the 2802, which probably means the transformer/power supply is much more robust and able to handle 4 ohm loads better. Also has main ins, so it can be converted to a surround channel amp, down the road. By then, it will be a 10.1 world [​IMG] Not saying there is anything wrong with the denon, especially if you plan on 8 ohm speakers. I believe the 2802 is more on par with the 320, while the 3802 compares more to the 520. If I could have got a 3802 for $500, probably would have been a different story, though.
    PS: The FedEx man was here today, but no one else was [​IMG] Should have the new toy tomorrow.

    Wait until tonight on the AVR520 purchase. It'll be under $500 including 3 day shipping and your purchase will help support HomeTheaterForum.
