    I know this has been asked, but here is where I am at. If any of you can add more. Please do so.

    Both do..

    component switching

    DPLII

    Onkyo

    Better Remote

    100 Watts X 5

    Denon

    90 Watts x 6 ( big plus there)

    Cheaper

    Anything else that I am missing in this comparison? Other than that, aren't they equal?

    Please help

    I'd go with the Denon if I had to choose (even though I love Onkyo). Of course, you could step up to the Onkyo 797 (which is an awesome piece) for just a little more, comparitively. JandR sells it for $799 or less.

    Yes, I was going to go with an Onkyo 696 myself. But as soon as I found out what all the Inkyo 797 had to offer, I elected to go up, spend the extra $$$ and pick up the 797. It shall be in my home theater next month in time for Christmas!!!! I look forward to its arrival!!!! [​IMG]
