Right now I have the Denon 4306, but I'm not sure what to do.. So I need to ask you guys...

I need exact details.

What am I losing if I switch from the Denon 4306 to the Denon 3808CI?
What am I gaining switching to the Denon 4308 from the 4306?

All certainly capable Denon models. The -08 (latest series)

has nice new tech goodies that go along with HDMI 1.3 capabilities. I have quickly read through the press releases about the new introductions but didn't attempt to memorize the stuff.

If your current 4306 is working fine, why feel a need to jump upgrade? HDMI 1.3 includes a lot of potential promised goodies. But it is exactly that - only promised potential.

I myself, am guilty of having an overkill Denon 4806. Helluva piece of equipment. Like most, I don't push it anywhere near it's limits & abilities. It's just that sort of thing. Buying fever on your part?

I have a PS3 that supports 1080p technology on a 1080p TV. My AV Receiver isn't a 1080p receiver, so I've been thinking of upgrading. Whens the 3808 coming?

post went to wrong thread!

Anyways, since Im at this thread, are you really going to choose and pull your hair out on a new receiver based on 1080p?

Well, many nicer receivers have video pass thru built in. But even if they didn't, theres nothing wrong with keeping your audio and video paths separate, except in the case of HD disc players if the HD audio was wanted. But like I said, all you need is video pass thru.
