    I have the Denon 1802 and am very pleased with it. I compared it to the Onkyo and preferred the Denon. If possible you need to listen to both.

    I have the Onkyo 595 and am very satisfied. I have not had any dropout problems with JP or Atlantis or any other disc. My only complaint is that the manual leaves much to be desired.

    A BIG plus for the Onkyo... the remote. Far better than Denon's. I have a 595, and my buddy as a Denon 2802... horrible remote compared to my cheaper Onkyo.
    Of course if you plan on getting a better remote, this point is useless... although, I haven't had the NEED to upgrade the Onkyo remote... [​IMG]

    Hello,
    next weekend I am going to listen to both and then I am going to decide the one to by.
    Thank all for the information.

    As mentioned above the 595 is being replaced with the SR600. with its 6.1 abilities and other improvements, including an additional 5 watts (80 watts) and ofcourse the awsome remote, i think it fairly beats the Denon 1802.



    I have the 696 and am very happy with it.

    also, you can find the sr600 at bestpriceaudiovideo.com (an authorized dealer) for $449 (including shipping & no sales tax). I thk thats the best deal at hte moment. You'd be hard pressed to find the denon at that price.
