    I'm looking at the new 1803 and 2802 for my new receiver, but I'm not sure what these will offer for picture quality for my progressive sources. I have a Xbox and a Panasonic CP-72 running to my Hitachi 32UDX10S, but I need a receiver to do the component switching as this TV only has one component input.

    For current, and past, Denon owners: how is the picture quality running through the receiver, compared to straight to the TV?

    I've heard the Denon softens the picture... is this true?

    I'm using my Denon 3802 for component switching of my HDSTB and PS dvd player without any noticable picture quality loss.

    John,

    The 27Mhz is plenty for 480i & 480p sources. There will be no picture loss. The only time the picture would become slightly soft is with HDTV 1080i sources.

    Then I guess the question is, when will 1080i come to a set near me. I doubt Adelphia is rushing to include HD programming in Maine, and even a softened 1080i picture kicks the hell out of the analog crap Adelphia is giving me.

    Maybe the 2802 is the answer then...
