I had a visitor last weekend from beautiful Canada who checked out some hd-dvd's with me on my XBOX 360 HD-DVD device with my Denon AVR-2807 and 3 Outlaw M2200's. He was so impressed that he paid me retail price for all of them and put them in his trunk when he went back home. He's a relative.

Anyhow, now I have all this money and a dream..... So I venture out and find a 4306 in Silver. It should arrive today. Got a great deal on it too. $600 below retail price....its a like new unit so we should be ok. I will report back later.

Anyone have any advice?

Lucky guy. My advice would be, since he's a relative, offer him back the part of the money that you don't spend replacing what he bought off you. It's only fair, right?

Well I offered to discount them when he picked them up...but NO BEANS. He paid me what I paid for everything...since it was all pretty new anyway.

3806 and 4306 users at AVS are reporting issues with them being about to play nice with 6 and 7 channel lossless PCM. It is a firmware issue and they have been told by Denon that they need to send their units back to Denon to get the firmware updated. Users of the 2807 are not reporting problems. Actually, the 2807 seams to be the best AVR on the market right now for playing well with HDMI audio off the BR / HD dvd players.

I think you should stick with what you have. The 4306 doesn't have much of a leg up on the 2807. You have to go to the 4806 to get much as far as SQ components go.

Too late....I am now a 4306 owner and I dont see anything about firmware. I do know that denon usa offers firmware downloads from their website...so I am hoping that if there is an issue they will allow us to do it ourselves. I have not noticed the problem myself just yet...but I am not running hd-dvd or blu-ray through hdmi. I will be soon and report back then.

Well I got a copy of the firmware and plan to install next week. It is confirmed to allow 7.1 PCM over HDMI and faster and better use of the internet radio feature. You can install over LAN but you will lose all settings.I need to take a few hours and write them all down.
