Denon and Onkyo are quality and after having great success with the TX-SR803 I will continue to buy Onkyo. I was thinking about getting the 605 but it lacks the power that the 805 would have. And going from a 803 to a 605 might leave me wanting my wattage back.
Lately new techs and models with great features seem to be coming out more frequently and it is hard to stay on top of the electronics game to have the newest and best. I have to keep telling myself to not pull out the credit card, it is hard though.
Regulars may recall I have been very happy since stumbling into Denon 4 years ago & now have 2 receivers & 2 DVD/universal players of theirs.
I have been interested in products like Onkyo jumping into the 1.3 market with their new models TX-SR575, 605 & 805. The 605 is in the meat of the market & should make many happy. The 805 requires a grand but should be a powerhouse.
Curiosity led me to simply e-mail Denon & got that above prompt reply. No further details at this time. But Denon does garner respect for solid reasons. Not as value oriented as, say, Onkyo, but they're been absolutely bulletproof or me. Solid products & c/net reviews agree.
