    Hi people, being as this is my first post here I thought I would keep in simple.
    I have been told by a local dealer that the Denon AVR 3801 is being discontinued and is to be replaced by the 3802. Does anyone know if this is true and when this new reciever will be out? I have called various other dealers but non of them have heard of this happening!

    Any info would be great.
    Thanx people.

    Yes, it's true. I think August will be the release date.
    The new receiver comes with DPL II and a face-lift.

    But nothing official has been confirmed as to a date for it, so you may experience delays. Its worth haging on though.

    Anyone from Denon posting here?

    Here is some (poorly translated) information from a German web site:

    High final in 2001: Denon points AVR-3802 and ADV-700
    18/06/2001

    On the High final presented Denon two novelties: on the one hand the new version of the success model AVR-3801, named AVR-3802. However, it is about no completely new device, but only about a Facelift. As the most important innovation is equipped AVR-3802 with Dolby ProLogic II. With it disposes the Denon-Receiver now of DTS NEO:6 as well as of the Dolby new development. Farther the DSPs were programmed again, now at digital level(plain) the user can put the assumption frequency of the Subwoofers, eligible for election 80 are, 100 or 120 hertz. A change should contribute to the sound improvement in the preliminary stage unity. From the beginning of September is available AVR-3802 to a price of presumably 1300 Euros (2600 DM) in the trade. A test gefacelifteten Receivers follows at the moment the market introduction.

    Now also Denon gets into the market with the DVD-Receivern and pointed with ADV-700 a very elegant complete solution of a DVD-Players with integrated amplifier and tuner.

    Elegant complete solution: Denon ADV-700

    Already the immense weight(importance) of 9,4 kilos documents high priority, the equipment hardly leaves open wishes: near the obligatory Dolby Digital and DTS decoder the complete system also disposes of Dolby ProLogic II, the reproduction of CD Rs, CD RWs and MP3-CDs also belongs with to it. Six different DSP programs including a 5-channels-stereo-reproduction round the offer.

    Also a Scart socket exists

    5 x 30 watts supply the inserted output stages of the device fitted out with a DOT matrix display which can be connected via Scar t to the TV and should distinguish itself by a particularly simple operation. To a price of 1200 Euros ( approximately 2400 DM) is available the DVD-Receiver presumably from August.
