    I'm assuming that Denon will be releasing a replacement for the 1804 soon (1805? perchance), as I've noticed that places such as Superfi have stopped listing the 1804 (or are now only selling it in black).

    As I'm waiting on my flat purchase to complete before buying my reciever does anyone know anything about a replacement and when it's likely to be in the shops?

    Thanks.

    The 2105 is replacing the 1804 for about the same price.
    You can allready check it at the German or US Denon website.

    1705 /1905 models will replace the previous 1404 / 1604.

    First review (german) in www.areadvd.com

    Hope that helps!

    excellent, wonder what the street price will level out at?

    Now I need to decide between the Sony 795 or Denon 1905 / 2105 .

    You can get a Denon 2105 in german Net shops for less than 500€.

    Or see the new Marantz SR4500!

    :laugh: Not a Sony fan then??

    I'll hold fire and see what price peope such as Super-fi start selling them at, can't do anything untill my flat completes anyway, but I do like the idea of the Denon.

    What HiFi loved both the Sony and the Denon. Both got 5 stars, Sony (just) prefered for 7.1 option.

    Thought the '790 was a brilliant amp and would have thought the 795 built on this. IMO, Sony begins to fall off the pace as Denon really get on it.

    Talking out the top of my head as usual, I see they've reviewed the 1705 (£250) this month. Seems a silly choice to review head to head with the Sony (£300) when the Denon 1905 is £300.

    I think it's done based on what they're supplied rather than what they choose to review.
