    Marvin,
    So typical of Denon. Just about every Denon I have seen scores extremely well in S&V test. Seems like the company to beat.

    Just for kicks however you might wanna check out the Sony STR-DB 1070's measured data.
    One CH =115W
    Five Ch =31w
    Six ch = 31w
    All into 8ohms @ 1khz.
    Distorsion @1w output [1khz,THD+noise 8ohms] ====== 0.058%
    Noise level = -65.2db
    Excess noise == +16.15db!
    Also it interesting to mention that the measured low/high pass XO point is 120hz for the Sony,and 100hz for the Denon!
    There was a mention for the Sony that it has multiple choices,but the there wasn't any of the same for the Denon.
    Do the 2802 has multiple XO points or Denon just "bumped" it from 80hz to 100hz?

    Yes - the reveiew was actually a sub $1K receiver shootout, between a Pioneer, Sony and the Denon. Basically, the Denon and Pioneer blew the Sony away. The Sony couldn't even keep up - tons of noise, low power, but it does have all those nifty adjustable settings! [​IMG]
    However, the Denon edged out the Pioneer (just barely) in power and noise levels. The reviewer said he would choose the Denon, because its performance was the best, but it didn't have all the bells and whistles of the Sony. But he said that basically Denon is a no frills, performance oriented company. Hence, that is why I have a 3802 and absolutley love it. Seeing how well the 2802 did, I can't wait to see how the 3802 measures.
    You can't go wrong with Denon - even their entry level stuff is a step above everyone else.
    Edit****
    My 3802 has adjustable crossovers 80, 100, 120. I thought the 2802 did, too. Maybe it was set to 100 to match the other receivers. Who knows.

    P.S. Steven - it was in the Decemeber issue, I just got mine a day or two ago.

    I wished they would have included an Onkyo receiver in the shoot-out. It seems that many people are trying to compare the Denon's to the Onkyos. Oh well.

    According to the literature, the Denon 2802 has multiple cross-overs; 80, 100 and 120.
