    I wonder if any 3803 owners out there would be kind enough to do a quick measurement for me. I used to own one and liked it and am now looking for another but I need to know how deep it is in total. That is, from the edge of the volume control to the end of the power lead plug. So, in other words, whats the minimum depth cupboard it will fit in with all the leads plugged in (I think the power lead is probably the sticky outest)

    I would be eternally gratefull if somebody could do a quick measure for me.

    Cheers.

    Thanks guys. Taz, you say it's 404mm to the power cable and yet Denon state 416, which I assume is without the power lead plugged in. Is the 404 a typo?

    Ah yes of course, thanks. I assumed it would be an IEC but I remember now that it's hard wired.

    Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.
