I am split between these two since the price is about the same, right now (~$1000). I have heard endless good reviews about the Denon 3805, but nothing on the HK DPR (Digital Path Reciever)2005, other than it is supposed to be a lot cleaner-sounding than previous DPR models. I am only debating since my reciever has to go in a closed media cabinet, and the DPR's run at significantly cooler temperatures than anaolgs, like the Denon 3805. Are these two even comprable with respect to sound quality? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
