The Denon site lists a feature without any explanation: "Personal Memory Plus". Does anyone know what it is or does?

Sounds reminiscent of a car having personalized drivers' "memory positions" for seats and steering wheel... \:\)

IIRC, Personal Memory Plus is the receiver remembers what each individual settings are for each input, ie DPLIIX for cd input and 7 channel stereo for tuner, DPLIIx for TV, 2 channel stereo for Net/USB input etc.

No, Jason, although Dolby and DTS would of course have provided equal processing for the various test samples used in comparing the formats, the same can't necessarily be said for Blu-ray discs commercially available. This is one of the points that editor Geoff Morrison makes in his comments under "So Subtle" at the end of the article by Mr. Birch-Jones, and is why I specified that the findings were "as formats" and not necessarily as "individual discs". As he also points out there, the variables possibly involved make "an in-home test, unfortunately,impossible".

That feature in my GUI at least is called "Auto Surround Mode." I've never heard of the one Mark posted, so maybe they changed the name at some point? Or, if Auto Surround and Personal Memory + are both mentioned, then I guess there's some other mystery feature out there I'm not aware of.

Mark... just buy it already! "Personal Memory Plus" isn't going to push you over the edge is it? ;\)

The devil on your shoulder,

Jason

"Personal Memory Plus function that automatically remembers the surround mode you last used for each program source, so that you do not need to select the mode again for that program."

From a review.

I think Dolby's new "Dolby Volume" (only avail on the top of the line HK and Arcam, sounds like an intersting feature, this will stop people from constantly adjusting your volume, and then losing the highs/lows and lower volumes, since the midrange freq's is more what we naturally hear.

Not sure if trinnov's Dynamic Volume has the same technology built into or not, but it is available in more models on the market.

(Finally!) pulled the trigger this morning on the 3808. I justified it by realizing:
1- I'll get something back when selling the old one
2- As long as the HDMI is 1.3, I'm not likely to see some major technology change that will make it obsolete for a few years
3- Financially, I CAN right now... I don't always have that opportunity.

Thanks to all for their help. Sorry I was a bit "needy" on this one! \:\)

You should have asked before. The 3808 is a HUGE mistake. Bad Mark, bad Mark... \:\)

You should have bought the Onkyo 876 or 906.;\)

Congratulations, and don't read the manual. \:\)
