First, let me say as a new member, that this is the best home theater forum I've found on the web. You guys have already helped me a lot and I haven't even posted a question before. Now my problem: I demoed the Denon 3801 in my home and was very impressed. I decided I would go ahead and get the 3802, since I watch some television and thought Prologic II would be nice... Now I wish I could return the 3802 and get the 3801 back, but my dealer sold the 3801 and says his distributor doesn't carry them anymore. Why would I want to return it? Because I've discovered what I believe to be VERY poor separation between the front channels (the rears are fine). There are several DVDs I have listened to over and over, to demo various receivers, and I feel I know them very well. One is The Matrix. Here are some examples of what I am talking about: At the beginning of the famous lobby shootout, Trinity throws a gun to the floor. She throws it off screen to the viewers left, and in my previous receivers, the sound of the gun sliding across the floor comes through - naturally enough - the front left speaker. But on the 3802, the sound comes from both the left AND the center, which muddies its proper placement. At the end of the shootout, as the Neo and Trinity leave the lobby through the elevator, a heavy piece of plaster from one of the lobby's columns tumbles to the floor - again on the left. And again the sound comes through both left AND center speakers! I could go on, but I hope you get the idea. My question for you: Am I insane? Or is this a real problem? It sure bothers ME. I'm going to take several DVDs into my dealer and demo them on a 2802 he has set-up, to see if it does the same thing. Since I'm pretty much stuck with the 3802, I'm hoping maybe I got a bad model and can just replace it with one that has better separation. Worst-case scenario: They're all like that and I have to live with it. Any advice? What do you think?
