Based on the internal pictures I saw of the 8802, it looks like each channel circuitry is single-ended in nature. For a true balanced design, each channel would have mirror-imaged component paths...

Funny, I was thinking the same thing this morning. I've had my AVP for about 5 years, and it also has the upgrade.

I don't "need" to upgrade it, but I've been curious for years what the proper...

Do yourself and your 4311 a favor and get a better music Blu-ray to demo. That EJ60 disc has horribly compressed audio mastering. Get any of the Tom Petty Blu-ray audio discs, and be prepared to grin...

I looked carefully at yours, and it is wired the same as mine. Bad relay? Can you try with a different receiver? I know one of my receivers acts goof with the 12V output.

Well technically I have either 450wpc, or 300 wpc depending on the amp, but my speakers are B&W Nautilus, so they sound quite nice with a lot of power. :)

Thanks for the additional info.

I just updated mine. Initial observations, there is now a lip-sync delay with standard 5.1 Dolby Digital. 2.0 Dolby Digital appears fine.

Nope. But buying a demo/floor/open box reciever is akin to buying a former rental car with 30k miles on it, and expecting it to behave like a brand new car.

Japan. Important distinction because it means the 7200W (and 5200W) are made by Denon, as opposed to the Made In China units which are sub-contracted out to manufacturing by Sherwood/Inkel.
