    There's no question that the 5803/9000 combo will be awesome. I doubt very much you'd be able to buy these units together for less than $5000 street. Unless you really want the best of the best you'd be better off going with an Elite 49TX and a DV-47A for roughly $3700. Think of what you could do with that extra $1300!!

    I'm sure the 49TX will go toe to toe with the 5803 but the 47A vs. the 9000 won't be as close. I'm just not sold that the 9000 will be so overwhelmly better than the 47A (or whatever new reference dvd player Elite has in the works) to justify paying $1500 more for.

    There is always the possibility of a 49TX + denon 3800 dvd player for about 3,300. I could use the extra 1700 for a loveseat and recliner!

    O.k. , we can play the "what we could do with the money saved" game all day long and no one has put the new denon dvd through it's paces but the amplifier differance between the 5803 and the 49...really! I sell both lines and the elite amps aren't up to the level of the denons.Of course as always ,this is just my opinion (shared by TONS of others I work with ) but it doesn't even seem like a close comparison so make sure that $1300 is spent on amps...because if we're strictly talking about their pre-pro abilities then there is room for discussion...

    yea, whats the deal with the amps in the 5803 vs. 49TX.... I was under the impression that the pioneer's were more robust.

    O.K., I don't want to set anyone off so this is the last time I'm going to state my OPINION on the 2 in comparison ,'cause sound quality is subjective but because of the spec.'s I was hoping for more out of the Elite, but the denon seems TO ME to have more guts and musicality...
    Of course, maybe I'm tone deaf [​IMG] [​IMG]
