Hey everyone,
Has anyone had an opportunity to check out Onkyo's new SR 600 receiver? I know it has just come out so it may be tough to find locally, but a couple Onkyo authorized internet dealers have this receiver at the same price (shipping included) as the Denon 1802. I am saving for the 1802, but am tempted by the 6-channel capability (future-proofing) and component video switching that the 600 offers over the Denon (they're both rated for 80watts per channel). I imagine Denon will "fire back" in the near future, but I'm making my purchase in about a month. If anyone has any thoughts or hears anything, please post!
Rob

I bought the Denon 1602, and have no regrets.
I'm not sure 6.1 will be a huge advantage over 5.1, it's not exactly revolutionary to put one more channel in the back. I saw the Gladiator in 6.1, and didn't really hear much difference from 5.1. When 9.1 gets big, that will be a different story!

Your best bet is to listen to both on the same speaker setup with the same source, and see which one you prefer.

Ravi,
Good points. I'll give it a shot as I'm in no real hurry. Thanks, and have a good one.

word has it that denon is planning to replace all of its receivers with an xx03 series. they've already started replacing the 5802 with the 5803. suuposedly, i hear the rest of their line is supposed to follow suit sometime around august. but they're being very tight-lipped about what changes will be made to the xx02 line.
