    Is that an optical input I spy under yonder black display window on the 1802?

    Good idea to keep up with everyone else!

    2802 with 6/7.1 may get it instead of the 3802 then.

    dont think its optical i think its one of those connectors you get on the digi camcorders, bit like USB but smaller, cant think of the name.


    I was going to say:
    but I wont as they havent, there is still ONLY 3 optical and 1 co-ax input and 1 optical out.

    Its decided by the way that i will be getting the 3802.

    I think the name you were looking for was FireWire, i.Link or 1394. All of them mean the same thing! :)

    www.denon.com has pdf's, product details ,photos etc for all the new Denons (3802,2802 etc) it also has details of the 4802 which is (probably) the U.S equivalent of the follow up the avc-a10se.

    It is actually an optical input, good idea too, so you can use a PS2 with it easily, or portable DVD etc.

    i.Link is just Sony's marketing name, it is equal to IEEE1394 (DV in/out). FireWire is Apple's name btw.

    but bear in mind i had problems with i.link on my vaio x19 but not with ieee on my hp6000

    maybe the vaio port has slightly different specs

    Any idea of the price for the 3802 yet? I would like one but may well consider buying the 3801 cause they should be available real cheap shortly.

    EUR 1299 = £800 or thereabouts.That's assuming that the sodding brit importers don't do the usual mark up over mainland Europe prices.

    If £800 = excellent value <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

    But is it worth the extra over the 3801, considering that it can be bought for £600 at the moment and will no doubt be even cheaper when the 3802 is released?

    The 3801 is missing some features (mainly DPL II), so if it's worth it or not is a question for you.<br />However if I am not mistaken the 3801 is not produced anymore and might hence not be available anymore very soon.

    Last time I spoke to Denon they said they had no more '01 series equipment left, so if you want a 3801 you had better buy one now. Chances are there will be none left when the 3802 arrives, which means a hefty discount on the 3801 is unlikely.

    As has been posted elsewhere (not my scoop!), thought you'd like to see this e-tailer selling the 3802 for £630 of the Queen's Pounds Sterling, in gold or black, you choose.

    I think I'm right in saying that a manufacturer can only describe their gear as including Dolby Digital EX<br />if the item in question is THX approved.

    Non THX kit has to refer to it as Matrix or 6.1, this is what Denon do with their cheaper kit and Yamaha do with<br />all their stuff that can do 6.1 as non of it is THX licensed/approved.
