Ah, I think I meant the 709. However, the 709 is lacking Airplay, so that's kind of a downside. I really don't have the funds to swing a receiver purchase this month, maybe in the next 2 or so.

I know the 100 WPC is purely psychological, but hey, I want it. The 2112 has a rating of 125 WPC at 6 ohms, at a rather iffy .7% THD (I know, 1% is the cutoff, but that's pretty high for advertising something, innit!).

I'm also putting this inside a not-particularly-well-ventilated cabinet, so it's going to need to run at least as cool as my H/K, which is an inferno.

I am starting to think Denon has been cutting some corners as of late; my parent's just purchased a 1312 albeit this is the very bottom of the line up, but it runs at -18 - -15 to get decent SPL on the M22/VP100 I gave them. I know these numbers really don't mean much bit it is an identifier as to the power available from this unit and it is getting dangerously close to '0' for normal listening let alone trying to achieve reference levels for a movie. I am thinking they should take it back and spend an extra $100 on an H/K or Pioneer.

We are getting Direct TV this coming week, and will have to figure out what to do with our two Tivo units, hmmm.

Randy, for reasons not invloving TV, we just dumped Direct for Comcast. You will like it. We miss it. Be prepared. Sat services are loathe to make deals with non-profits. In many markets, including the birthhome of PBS, sat companies do not broadcast PBS (and some other stations) in HD.

Their graphics and functionality, are IMO, superior to cable.

Naw, Jason; amplifier power ratings are the one thing in audio where "cutting corners" isn't permitted by law(FTC regs). You were right the first time: the volume control numbers really don't mean much. At least the rated 75 watts are available and would be enough for peaks of maybe 103-104dB on those Axioms. Tell your folks to kick it up a notch when they want more volume.

I finally had a more thorough listen and it seems fine for their purpose, I think I was expecting the way my M80s sound at first.
