    Just how big an upgrade can I expect

    My sources are nearly all High Def

    Will be PS3 and HDA1 via HDMI - blu ray and hd-dvd

    Also have two outputs via HDMI (which I belive the Onkyo can do)

    So worthwhile upgrade ?

    The specs are one part of the story the more important part for me would be the sound. The Onkyo has a different sound characteristic compared to the Denon (and the ugly blue ring with a green display but this is very personal taste of course).

    I think you should go for a demo.

    The Denon though (as I understand it) does not make full use of the high def sound formats

    Unless you input via analog of course.

    What I meant: Denons have a quite warm sound and the Onkyos, Sonys etc sound different. I think you should give it a test drive befor you decide?
