    Can't search right now. Which receivers under $500 have DPL II? Is DPL II a good enough feature to exclude receivers without it?

    I know the Onkyo DS595 and Denon 1802 have DPL II. The DS696 and 2802 are over $500. Do any Yahama's have DPL II? The HTR-5460? Any other brands?

    Most of the new model Kenwood receivers have DPL II. Those are probably the least expensive that have this feature.

    Yes. I wouldn't buy a receiver without DPL II. Just as I wouldn't buy a receiver without enough digital inputs of each type. Just like I wouldn't buy a new recevier without a phono input. Why should I; I don't have to.

    Check the new Marantz, they have DPLII. I like the DPLII for movies on digital cable. Only one Showtime channel is in 5.1 here, so all my HBO, Encore, Starz, etc. is giving the DPLII a workout so is some of my DVD's(the ones that are not 5.1 or 6.1).
