Don't go by what Crutchfields says, go by what Denon says. And again, look for the green "check" mark. Because when you get down to the Burr-Brown area for the 2807, 3806 and 4806, all you will see is a "-" and not a green "check" mark for the 2807. So that means no on the Burr-Brown. And in fact, what you will see for the 2807, that it has that 24-bit/192-kHz DACs - Analog Devices chip, and not the Burr-Brown.

I believe the 2807 is the first Denon AVR to pass 1080P over HDMI

Really, my problem (as I perceive it to be) is that my HDTV has only one DVI and three component inputs. I'm looking to see which receiver 3806 vs. 2807 will be able to run hi-def DVD to my display, and how I can do that...

I don't have the 2807 yet, but here is what I believe to be the case from the manual. All analong inputs, such as component, can be upconverted to HDMI. It will NOT upscale the signal, just pass it through. It doesn't appear that it will upconvert any 1080P inputs at all. In order to get it out via HDMI it needs to be input via HDMI.

I believe 1080P is passed only over HDMI. This means run HDMI-DVI cable for video. Will your display accept 1080P in? To my knowledge only the HP DLP will currently.

FYI, my brand new Panasonic TH-50PX60U plasma will accept 1080p input via HDMI. I believe the Sony XBR rear projection sets will as well.

My display will only accept 720p/1080i, so my understanding is that it will downscale the 1080p when I feed it in.

So, given all the info, the 2807 will pass 1080p and the 3806 does not. Therefore, if I'm planning on being as "future-proofed" as I can with regard to hi-def DVD, the 2807 is the only choice between it and the 3806 (assuming I run video through the receiver) - right?

Your plasma is a native 768P so I doubt it accepts 1080P. It will accept 1080i. Even if it does its downscaled to the 768 native resoution.

Even the first HD-dvd players are 1080i--not sure if Blu-raywill be 1080P at intro.

Be careful even most 1080P native displays do not accept 1080P inputs.

The current Sony sets do NOT accept 1080P. I would expect the ones released later this year will.

Got my 2807, along with a Sanus stand and a few other goodies from Crutchfield the other day. After a couple of sleepless days (I work the night shift), I've now got everything set up, calibrated and controlled with a Harmony 880. I gotta say, I'm happier than Al Bundy with a stack of Big 'Uns. The sound quality is incredible! Granted I'm not running audiophile speakers (Bose 301s for surrounds, a VCS-10 for center and a Sony 100-watt sub), but the improvement over my old JVC receiver is VERY noticeable. I had to tweak the Audyssey setup a little bit to get some bass, but once that was done I felt like I finally had a decent setup. The only complaint I'd have is that switching between components causes a momentary green flash on my screen (I've got everything running through one HDMI cable to the tv), but I can certainly live with that.

I'm jealous! The local Best Buy won't have any for "a couple weeks" and Crutchfield's site says they are out of stock and no ETA on availability...Have to continue to wait...D'oh...

I like Bose speakers, have for many years. Can't go wrong with them!

Wonder if that green flash might not be a normal thing. The switching could be triggering a scan for resolution, or something. Congrats on the new toy, keep us posted on the 2807.

How did you tweak the audyssey setup for your bass? I set mine up and while the "surround" movie experience was awesome, bass was less than exciting. I realize it's "smoothing" it out, and that's great. I have an HK-635 to compare to and the subwoofer equalization there sounds spot on. With the 2807 it sounded really thin. I demoed the Monster's Inc trailer on Toy Story 2 and those awesome knocks at the start with the really low bass info were completely eqed out.. same with the great subsonic material during the opening Toy Story 2 scene as buzz is flying around. I'm really only concerned about the low low end that I don't want eqed out as it needs a boost to be noticed given our insensitivity to those lower frequencies. Any ideas..?

Does or can the 2807 display volume on your monitor? This receiver is rising to the top of my list quickly.

It is supposed to but I am having trouble with the OSD. The manual says that over HDMI OSD works on set -up or when display is press on remote. Neither works for me.

Snowblade I believe the flashing you see is caused by HDMI/HDCP handshaking as you change inputs. This is normal

The 3806 and 4306 also do.

Currently ABT electronics has the Denon 2807 in stock. I believe they are an authorized online retailer.

For those who have already received their units, can you please tell me how easy it is to access the Ipod connectivity port and what kind of success, complaints, criticism you have of it? Thanks.
post #168 of 4105
if you could buy the 4306 for $1400 from a good friend WOULD YOU or would you buy the 2807 if you could get that for $850?

Since I have never heard either, I honestly can't say. What I'm sure everyone would like to know is where they can get one for $850...or even $950 for that matter. Please elighten us :-)

post #171 of 4105
Rec'd my 2807 from Crutchfeld yesterday and was reading through the manual prior to setup. I plan to use it to drive a 7.1 setup in a media room with 2 sets of rear surrounds. It will also drive a "B" pair of front speakers in a different room. I was a bit confused when reading the set up procedures referencing ZONE2. I assume ZONE2 is only relevant if separate components are powered not just speakers. Does anybody with a similar config as above have any advise on setup?

Well after calling another Best Buy store and speaking to one of the guys in the Magnolia there he said that he had been to a nearby Magnolia store (not one inside a BB), and they had one on display, but the earliest they would have one in the BB stores was April 16th. So I Googled for the local Magnolia's and found the one the BB guy was talking about and I called them and all they have is the display model there . The guy I talked to checked his computer and said he was going to their San Francisco store tonight and would pick one up for me there, since they have them in stock ($999). I'll be picking it up in the morning at their San Ramon store!. Totally stoked!

Denon website for the 3806 and 4306 says "1080p HDMI switching ", which is the same thing that it says for the 2807.

As has been pointed out, Denon USA's Website says they do. The UK/European models do as well.

Look in the manual. In the appendix there is a chart. A footnote says 1080P is not handled.

I hope I am wrong but I do not want to see disappointed people if I am not. I saw same thing as you when shopping and called Denon. That is why I waited for 2807. That plus reported other HDMI problems
post #177 of 4105
To answer some questions:

The way I tweaked the sub was to set the crossover frequency at 100 mhz (under the speaker setup menu). Any higher than that and the sound quality dropped. I don't know if this means I'm no longer running under the Audyssey setting, but the sound is still incredible. I tested it with various scenes from Revenge of the Sith and got the floor to shake a little

Yes, the volume is displayed onscreen. I initially had some problems getting it to display, but was able to get it to show up by accessing the menus from the receiver itself (the remote can call up the OSD now, but only after I initially got it to show up). Try pressing the setup button on the remote.

I'm glad to hear the flashing is normal...I was worried for a minute there

It's a bummer to hear Crutchfield's out, but from what I've experienced so far with this receiver, it's well worth the wait. Having seen how easy it was to do the auto setup and eq (even though I had to switch the wiring on my speakers a few times before it stopped saying they were out of phase), I'm blown away by the improvement in sound.

Snowblade

Are you ouputting HDMI? I am and have done the OSD setup however still not getting OSD even when I press set-up or when I press display. I am waiting til Monday to call Denon.
I have not changed anything yet but I found the sound to be better (to me) than the Audessey setup. I agree it is lacking in bass.

That's referring to the fact it can't convert an analog 1080p signal to HDMI.

I am not trying to argue the point with you. I am not sure what is correct. However I took the word of Tech Support and waited.

There is an apparent discrepancy between the manuals/datasheets and what Tech support says. This is common unfotuneatly. I assume you have the 3806 and can confirm its performance first hand. If so I stand corrected

I am simply trying to tell people to be careful. If a feature is important to you then reasearch carefully. You are doing a dis-service to forum users to state something as fact without definitive proof.
