I will see if I can get it for a reasonable price. If not I will get the 898 at JR! Any last appeals to change my mind? The Sony DA5ES was a great contender. But the 7 channels for better or worse in the 3802 and 898 beat it out by a hair! I have not heard or seen any of these rcvrs. So what can I say???? I can't be disappointed unless it doesn't work out of the box. The JVC 10 was a best buy if you don't need or want ES DISCRETE(only es matrix). This was the heaviest of the whole pack and looked well built. This was a tough decision. I have owned all the brands before except a Denon. So If it is really made in Japan and works, I suspect it will be a great rcvr.
