I guess the THX site let the Denon 5803 cat out of the bag.

    If you go over to the THX website and look under the Home THX Product Database and search under Denon, Receiver and Ultra you'll find a little note about the AVR-5803 which states:

    Manufacturer: Denon

    Category: Receiver

    Model: AVR-5803

    Status: Pending

    Region: USA

    Special Notes: Ultra2, THX Surround EX, Dolby Digital, DTS, 7 amp channels

    Type: Ultra

    So I guess it is coming at least according to THX. Now only if they would announce the 5800 upgrade.

    >just ask MacIntosh, their receiver that had a suggest retail price of 5k never hit the market<

    Jaleel,

    I did just that. Today, I spoke to Chuck in tech support there. He verified that the unit is finally shipping. Their problem was making a "McIntosh" to come in at that price point. Jamie, in sales, told me earlier that they're sold out through the first quarter of '02. My dealer says that, according to McIntosh, I should be checking mine out by the start of January. I'll let you know how it performs (and if I'll keep it) after it arrives.

    Jaleel, I was joking... [​IMG]
    Personally, I can't wait for the "3803" equivalent when it comes out.
