Ok here are the following prices:

Denon 3313 - 855.00 shipped
Onkyo 818 - 779.00 shipped
Onkyo 809 - 469.00 shipped

Here is my situation. I have a denon 1612 and want more power for my image b6 and c5 center w klipsch rs41 surrounds. I eventually want to go with emotiva amp to power at least the front 3 so I want the preouts. These three have options I want:

Denon has the airplay the onkyo 818 HS the better audiessey. The 809 has a nice price where I am almost there to get the amplifier

I am confused. I love denon hence why I am considering it. I used to have the 3801 when it was in it production year.

I am giving my current 1612 to my parents so this is a I did a nice thing upgrade present and has been ok d with the wifey.

Any help would be appreciated. I just need a nudge here or there.

1612 or 1712? Your sig shows 1712 and that would make a difference as the 1712 uses the same version of Audyssey MultEQ XT as does the 809 and 3313CI. The 818 (XT32 and expandable to 9.2) and 3313CI (Zone2(HDMI)) also offer features the 809 does not so also depends on your feature requirements.

Correct. They are all mid level models and all feature networking. Although it's unlikely that adding an external amp will add any benefit, going with the 809 does provide extra savings towards the XPA-3.

So by getting one of these you don't think adding an external amp will show any benefits?

Thank you very much for your responses btw. I appreciate it

Also I forgot to ask any other options I am missing at this price point?

Also the 809 has dropped to 457

Maybe the 818 will come back down to sub 700$ territory too. It has dropped 50$ in the past day

Well for the XT32... 818 is hard to beat. It will drop to 600ish in the next few months..just from seeing how low it has dropped at times already.

If you can hold off...wait and get the 818.
