I'd love to go for the Denon, but the Kenwood got's THX. To answer COMMON's qn about the Kenwood's THD: Features: THX Select, THX Surround EX, DTS-ES, DTS, Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro logic II, MPEG Multi Channel 32-bit D.R.I.V.E. III, 32-bit Floating Point DSP, Linear T.R.A.I.T. for 5 channels, 8-mode DSP, HDCD 2-way 4-line LCD remote control unit with Learning & Preset function (Macro Set Up, Mega CD Changer Title Download) Surround power output (All channel driven): (Front) 100W x 2; (Centre) 100W; (Rear) 100W x 2 (at 6 ohms, 1kHz, 0.03%THD) Stereo power output : 130W x 2 (at 6 ohms, DIN/IEC 1kHz, 0.03%THD) Terminals: Gold plated RCA terminals for all inputs 5 digital inputs (2 optical / 3 coaxial) Optical digital output 10 audio inputs (included Front Aux., 6-channel input) 5 audio outputs 5 visual inputs (Composite, S-Video, included Front Aux., 2 component inputs) 3 visual outputs (Composite and S-Video, 1 Monitor component output) Dimensions and weight: W: 440 x H: 191 x D: 416mm 16.8kg Sounds like alot to me & its cheaper than the 3802....I'd love a reason not to get the KENWOOD. Accoring to the KENWOOD rep. you can't coz' the THX kicks in maintains the xover freq at 80. But then, these guys would just about say anything right ?!! I will have to go in for a demo. Anything I need to look out for when I got for the demo ? I'd love some pointers.
