    Well? How does it compare to the Denon AVR-4802 and Yamaha RX-V3200?

    It's not out yet therfore, no one knows yet. Looks like a nice receiver from what little info there is on it.

    JohnnyG, Harman International owns JBL.

    HK's version of Logic7 only applies to 2 channels sources (in ALL their receivers). Whether or not this means you'll be able to apply Logic7 to a Dolby Digital 2.0 source, I don't know.

    All the HK models allow you to apply Logic7 to DD 2.0.

    The reason I ask is because I printed off the manual and it makes it sound like logic 7 on this receiver CAN be applied to all sources including dd 5.1/7.1 except dts-es but the manual isnt exactly clear on this point..Are you'll sure that this new model doesn't allow this ? thanks
