[quote=MichaelJHuman;14868191]Why are you considering the 3900?
I wasnt really considering the 3900, it was really the 1900 i was considering. I am able to exchange the denon 889 for the 1900 for 200 dollars more and i was wondering if the extra watts would be worth it. The hd radio and the preouts also entice me. I'm assuming the v1800 uses the same amp the 1900 does, and i saw that in real world settings, the v1800 puts out 55 watts when 7 channels are driven. The denon 889 is "rated" at 100 watts 7 channels driven. What it comes down to is, do you think the denon will have more power, or will the 1900 have more power. The power supply on the denon is 5.5amps. I was unable to find how strong the 1900 is, although the peak watt use is 1100 watts.
