Any sign of a Denon AVR-2806?

Can't find any hint of a replacement for the 2805 anywhere on the net.

Denon have replaced the entire line of xx05 receivers except this one, surely it must be coming? Has anyone got a 'mate of a mate' that knows anything about this?

I'm hoping it'll be out early next year with and have HDMI switching w/ upconversion to compete with the Yammy RXV-1600. 2 component outs (a la the 3806) would be nice too.

The 2805 is set to stay put by all accounts, there has been no hint of a '6' variant. The introduction of a model above the 3806 in the shape of the 4306 may be the reason.

I'd imagine the CES Show in Jan 06 is when/where they would announce a replacement.

That leaves the 3806 as their entry level HDMI switcher. At £1000 that's a pretty high entry level...too high for me :(

Thanks for the info.

Ah, a bit of hope!

In your experience does info about new models leak out before these announcements or do they remain 'surprises' until the day?

I ask as there hasn't even been any speculation about a 2805 replacement and as Cable Monkey says, that could be because they simply don't intend to replace it.

Depends. Sometimes bits of info leak out, other times a new model will appear out of the blue.

I would be very surprised if it doesn't get replaced to be honest as the 2803/2805 were/are very popular models.

Even if they do announce a 2806 at CES it will likely be a couple of months later before it hits the market.

I was told last week by a dealer that the 2806 had been announced "that day".
No indication of that anywhere, not here, nor the US or Germany (where they will probably appear first).

The only thing I can add here is that I notice that Leading Edge Concepts have the 2805 listed as Discontinued.

Cheers,

Martin.
