My trusty old Denon 1082/3802 passed away last night and my unbelievably compassionate wife has given me the green light to upgrade... however, I'm deeply afraid she may have second thoughts by the time I get home from work tonight, so I need some help FAST. Here's what I need:

- Untouched HDMI passthrough and switching
- All the latest HD audio codecs
- 7.1 or 7.2
- Good/great power (would prefer 115wpc or higher)
- Superior THD rating vs my old receiver

Here's my gear:
Panasonic AE3000U
Denon AVR-1082
VP150
M60 x2
QS8 x4
SVS PC12-Plus x2

... I'm sure there's more I need and would like to have, and normally I would take much more time to research, but this opportunity could disappear in a flash if I don't act today. Can anyone offer some good suggestions?

But, that doesn't have any of the new HD audio formats, right?

Either of these receivers would do your M60's justice. Axiom has bench tested these receivers by the way. They also come with Axiom's 5 year warranty which is a big bonus IMO.

Nevermind- I called Denon and confirmed that the 3808ci has got it all. it's confusing, though, that 6ave does not list the HD audio formats in its specs... wonder why. So, best place to buy, price-wise? 6ave? I've bought from them in the past and had no probs... Oh, and is there any reason I should consider the 2809ci over the 3808ci?

3808 has the gui, networking, more hdmi ins (and other types as well), I think it has a better version of audyssey, slightly more power plus lots of other stuff I am sure. I have a 3808 and absolutely love it.

I also ordered mine from 6ave back in nov of 07

My 3808 is in route from 6ave to Iowa right now, shipped yesterday. It has all the bells and whistles. \:\(

Make sure it's an authorized Denon dealer. Otherwise Denon will not honour there warranty.
