I'm looking into a Denon 2802 or Yamaha RXV-1200. My local Denon and Yamaha dealer says that Yamaha has changed their sound a little to make it more relaxed, and laid back. I was able to listen to a RX-V800 side by side with a 2802, but the dealer unfortunately did not have a 1200 out. I liked the sound of the Denon better, but it seemed to work harder. Which would be better, 1200 or 2802. I am running 4ohm ADS towers infront and Definitve procinema surrounds with a Velodyne Sub.
