    I've seen a lot of people recommend the 4802 on this forum. I have the 2802 and am very happy with it.

    I have a Pioneer DVD - player, but I would go with the Denon anyway. They make very good receivers.

    Juan-
    I choose the 49TX...[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I'd wait till Denon makes the 3803 or 4803 and hopefully have ALL the necessary Formats PLUS upgradability!
    Good Luck Man!

    I don't think you can lose with either. But each has its pros and cons.

    Ok, I have decided that if the 47tx that I have on order does not arrive by this Friday then I am going to cancel that order and go with a Sony 5ES and a 3 channel amp for the front stage. I like all of the features the Sony has to offer.

    I personally wouldn't buy Sony.
    Review in the Jan S&V that compared a Sony receiver to two other manufacturer's. The Sony was under powered.
    And, their ES multi-channel amp also has problems. Reliability and also under powered:

    Go down to "A PROBLEM WE THOUGHT".
    I would stick to your original choices, but also maybe take a look at Yamaha too. [​IMG]

    Well, my credit card just got charged so maybe my 47TX is on its way. Can wait to mate the TX with my Divas.

    Our opinions don't mean a thing to you, unless you know why they were formed.

    I'd buy the one with the phono preamp.
