There is no AVR4313.

The new lower/mid level Denon XX13 models (up to the 3313CI) won't be announced until next month with the new 4X13CI (replaces 4311CI and 4810CI) to be announced this summer.

I doubt there will be anything big on the new 43 series. The new audyssey lfc is not a big deal to me and neither is NeoX so I would have no problem getting a 4311 now. You should be good with the a100 unless your upgraditis comes back, and we all know how bad your upgraditis can get!
I have never been much of a flagship guy myself but it would be cool to see something higher than a 4. The highest I've been is the 33 series so I would be happy just getting up to the 43 series.

This is why i dont agree with Opec and the bs they push out increases in oil where gas companies get away with raising prices on inventory they bought at a cheaper price.

It depends on how they do their inventory - and by law they must choose one or the other. Either you can sell based on purchase price or you can sell based on replacement price. Gas stations sell based on replacement price. The gas they sell is not based on the price it was when they bought it, but the price of the gas they need to buy to replace what they sell.

If the price of replacement gas to sell goes up, the price of what they are currently selling goes up. If the price of replacement gas to sell goes down, th eprice of what they are currently selling goes down.

They do this to ensure they have enough money to buy the replacement gas, else they go out of business.

i'm not aware of any avrs that have pre-outs that are "restricted"?

yet, that's not what you said...

however, to address your re-stated point... because in the real world, very few users need them... and they are readily available if the user DOES need them...

whereas virtually all users benefit from dsp, etc.

My preouts got too "ampy" so I had to restrict them.

However the problem is when trade with the USA economy is considered, the USA is spending significantly more $ than it takes in, just printing more low-value, paper money. This increases our deficit by a significant amount which in turn drives down the value of the US$...

Basic economics 101...
The value of the US$ will only appreciate if one of the following happens:
A. The total value of US exports exceeds that of imports
B. Actual real productivity increases significantly
C. The USA increases it backing of the US$ with real, high-value holdings such as gold
D. Our USA national budget operates within its means
E. Note that some deficit spending can be done, but this spending has to cause a higher payback then the original investment

I could go on with more explanation on this subject of exchange rates and global economics but these are readily available on the internet...
Just filter out the political rhetoric..

Just my $0.02...

First off, how can the currencise be stable relative to each other and be unstable relative to the USD when China effectively pegs their currecy to the USD?

Second, your sceanrio of what causes currencies to appreciate only exists in textbooks. In reality, central bank interventions have a far greater impact on currency values than deficits and surpluses do. How else do you think it's possible for countries to continually run deficits or surpluses year after year? If central banks didn't intervene, currency values would float to a point where deficits and surplusses would disappear.

Ayway, without currency intervention, the only factor that would influence a currencies value is the differece between net investment inflows and the current account deficit. All those other things may have an indirect long-term effect on this, but they don't have any direct effect.

I have news for you, it's not just the US printing money. Everyone is printing.

I think these latest generation of receivers are incredible for the price. You get quite a bit for around $500.00 - ie. etherNET/Network connectivity, Streaming, USB/iPod, InterNet, control Apps access (AirPlay, etc.,.,..), firmware updates via-Internet, Audyssey (even though it's only MultiEQ XT, or only 7.1), good power (90W per/chan for example), 3D compatible, all the latest popular sound processing (DSP) and more.

I have a new Denon AVR-2112CI and I'm totally impressed. The only thing missing I'd want are pre-OUT's, but that's not a deal closer. I have other (high-end) system.

Just go back like 10 years and compare features and price to these (comparable) current AVR products.

Hmmm...
Try this link and it will illustrate the basic point...
Just input the (2) respective currencies.
http://www.x-rates.com/

Regarding China, you need to understand their culture..
For the last several years, Hong Kong has been their primary financial center and export shipping port.. The Hong Kong $ is pegged to the US$, however within China they use a difference currency RMB..
Additionally, China politically has been sheltering their exports to drive their economy but this is why certain products are actually quite expensive within China domestically compared to their exports..

As I already posted previously deficit spending is not always negative it depends upon this invetsment and what additional paybacks it delivers...
Regarding countries that have real fiscal financial management, checkout Canada & Germany..

I suspect based on your posting history that you have both the degree and extensive practical real world experience with this. But maybe you're in over your head too.

The truth is that there is no disappointment - this is predictable.

The AVR manufacturers release old wine in new bottles every 12 months and expect the world to collapse in adoration. In fact, they view their own business as a dying carcass - one that they refuse to invest in or progress with. This "new 2012 model" stuff is a hoax to try and fool consumers (or as one of them called it elsewhere on this forum "maintain price points".

No, nothing in the "new" product is going to boggle your mind. Get used to it. And beware that there are industry folks here masquerading as consumers.

Theres someone who knows what's up. You're not lying about the clean power. Last review I read of Denon...sorry "Marantz" NR1602 said that it claimed 50 Watt per channel but in fact on the test bench was topping out at 23 clean watts per channel x 5. Beyond that was basically damaging your speakers.

No surprise then that these products cant hold their price and we get an annual charade of "new" releases of old product in a futile attempt to do so.

Also, be aware that there are folks here that thinks that AVR manufacturer's should employ IT engineers, software developers as well as acoustical engineers. Develop new and innovative products every year, have 120w of clean power in 7 channels, fit in their tiny little closed entertainment center and all for under $500 while pushing a product that is for a niche market. And when there is a little bug, come on this forum and bash the product like hell. All the while some companies gives us products like Win**ws Millenium and Vista but it's ok 'cause it's a complicated affair after all.

If some of us think that the "I" company releases a brand spanking new product every 2 years that is 100% more innovative than the previous...sit down and really think about it. How much more innovative then the previous is it really? the color of the interface? a new app? the size of the case? It's marketing, not innovation.

Also, nobody cares to notice that 30 years or so ago and ,according to the folks who owned them, when amps were at their best, that's all they did is amplify. As they started incorporating new tech at the demand of consumers, well something as to give. The economical reality of today is not the same as then. There's the word "inflate" in inflation.

I for one am, quite happy with my Pio and Denon. They serve their purpose well.

Having said that, I'm done with this topic. No point of continuing this debate as it will resolve nothing, time to move on to new stuff

cheers

Anyone who suggest getting an economics book to understand how economics is working in todays world hasn't a clue.

Give me one example where someone has corrected me? Just one.

Seriously?
You think the CNY has not been pegged to USD?
The CNY being effectively pegged to the USD has probably been the biggest trade issue between the US and China for the past decade. Although technically it's been a slowly moving peg for the last few years.

Here's a link from your own post that shows it's in a well controlled trading band.

Looks like I nailed it. The Onkyo 818 is going to have XT32. Very smart move by Onkyo.

I agree with the OP. I'm so glad I got my Onkyo TX-NR5008 brand-new for $1600 when I did. There's virtually no difference between it and the 5009, and I doubt the 5010 will add much to the mix.

Go for a 2009 Onkyo 3007/5007 or Denon 4311.

Unless you have to have the Yamaha Z11.

This seems like it would be a great thread to find a comprehensive matrix of 2012 products, yet I've only heard a few generalities by brand...and lots of economics talk...
