Every so often I reconsider whether I should upgrade by 3806. I really like that unit, but it has limited audio processing. So I rely on my Blu-Ray player, HTPC, and Dune for the surround audio processing right now.
Both of these receivers look nice. I gather the Audyssey processing on the new unit is better. The zone processing is not important to me.
Any other trade offs, especially with regard to the remotes, SACD processing over HDMI, or external audio inputs?
Overall, it looks like the new model is the way to go but I suspect it will not be available at good discounts at first.
