    I just spoke to a source at Denon who, speaking off the record, gave me a little detail on the 5800 upgrade. First off, there will be one (applause). Estimated cost is $500-700 and will be partially through the RS232 port. Other parts may be changed, but it will definitely be an upgrade where you must send your 5800 to have this done. It will include all the current advantages the 4802 has (DPLII, DTS 96/24, adjustable crossover settings) and more! The worst part of the news is that we won't see anything about it until at least February or March of next year.
    I hope this is good news for us 5800 folk.

    I verified the same info with my Denon dealer who was mistakenly told that the new 5800s had DPLII in them. Yep, early next year, and about $500...OUCH!

    Man, I'm glad I bought the 4802. It seems like even more of a bargain now. It would of been nice to have more power and the AC-3 LD input though.

    The 5800 has more to it over the 4802 than just DPLII.
    I am glad I did not wait for the 4802 to come out. [​IMG]
    Thanks Michael for the update.
    I had been wondering whether or not something would be announced regarding the 5800 upgrade.
    Originally it was said September would be the date for the upgrade to take effect.
    February will be here before we know it.
