Well I am very excited the receiver is due next week so I will be preparing the rack this weekend, having owned many previous Denon recievers I was thinking about going for an Onkyo 875/905 but bailed out this morning cancelled my order and thought what the heck my wife is going to moan at me anyway so why not go crazy !!! I am lucky enough to work for an AV company and this morning got the full glossy spec sheets on the 4308 dumped on my desk and wasted no time in changing my plans. The spec sheets provide 6 full pages of excellent informative information and reading through them I realised that this really is going to be something special. I really did nearly join the dark side having always been a denon fan boy only because the Onkyo really seems to offer excellent specs for the money and the reports have been very,very favourable but the 2 things that put me off were the asthetics which to me do matter and also the stories of the 875 being able to heat the whole house all by itself and I was not going to change my av rack or add additional fans. Very excited.
