Dynamic volume is something I am hoping for on the higher model Onkyo's as well, but if they don't have it then I am seriously considering the Denon because of that. I don't know why Onkyo wouldn't have it on even their highest models, unless they didn't get time to figure out how to incorporate it or Denon got some timed exclusivity to it.

Dynamic volume is a huge WAF winner. Other than the extra HDMI ports (which admittedly is a big deal) it doesn't look like anything more than a tweak to the 805 (which is available at half the MSRP), whereas Denon is really doing a lot to enhance their line for 2009.
I knew about Dynamic volume, but what else is Denon doing that significantly enhances their 2009 line compared to last years?
