    There are a couple of Japanese sites that give you some specs when translated, but basically here's the deal:
    Take the 3801 and add the following:
    Beefed up power supply
    Upgraded DDSC circuitry
    Better isolation of circuitry from power supply
    DPL II
    5 watts more per channel (not quite sure about this one).
    Best equipped mid-range receiver on the market.
    An already great receiver refined at bit more.

    And a selectable 80/100/120 x-over for what it's worth.

    I beleive the 2802 will be matrix and the 3802 will be discrete. I'm almost positive. The 2802 will have 6 channels which will make it matrix. That was what i saw on the screen when the salesman showed me. I saw 100x6/dd/dts-es. Which makes me think matrix. the 3802 said ???x7 (don't remember it had more wattage) but it will be discrete, I now for sure.

    There was a German DVD/Home Theater site that basicly said the same thing as what GregoriousM posted. Here it is as translated by Dictionary.com.

    Gil: The MSRP will probably be pretty close to the 3801. Isn't is $1099 in the US? Street price in the $950 area is my guess. (and what I'm budgeting)
    Leon: will probably see it about a month or two after the 3802. In the past Denon seems to do about one receiver a month when they have a release of a new line/series.

    Leon V, pricing at Tweeter showed: 3802 at the same price as before which was $1199 and the 2802 was at $799. Now whether or not that price will remain the same after they hit floor showrooms remains to be seen. I have exacly enough plus taxes to buy the 3802 and with the option to go down to the 2802 if I like it. If it's more than that I'll have to save more.

    Hi Henry,
    Would you mind telling who your mail order contact is for the 3802? If you don't want to post it on the forum, you could email me at jerndl[email protected] Thanks.

    this is in response to Bill about the Denon 3801 not being DTS discrete. The 3801 is DTS-ES discrete, so I expect the updated version of it to be too.

    The 3802 is DTS-discrete AND 7 channel.
    And I listened to DPL2 today and I have to say that it does do a great deal to the 2 channel DVD's that are coming out, to the 2 channel and ProLogic VHS tapes, and to movies, etc. on cable or satellite.
    I think that some of the problem is that people are comparing it to DD/DTS which is discrete. If you do, you'll be disappointed in DPL2.
    If you compare it to the old ProLogic and how it treated 2 channels sources and surround sound, etc., I think you will be pleasantly surprised!
    IMHO!

    I will extend a slight warning---if you are hanging your hat on DPLII because you want to watch cable movies , please check how that algorithym will work with the "high quality""stereo" transmission of your cable companies audio...I have many dissapointed customers

    Since i dont have DPL II, yet, I will say that the 3801's Neo-6 Cinema does wonders with cable audio.

    Does anyone have any info on were to buy the 3802 by mail or online. It will probably be cheaper but, trying to find an authorized dealer will be might be hard.
