Curious what the path has been for others who have purchased another Denon AVR to replace this unit.
I have been looking at the 991 (particularly as discounts become more aggressive, presumably due to the new xx12 line). Reported network issues present a minor concern. I also like what I read about the new 1912.
Would love to have the same quality/value experience that I've had with the 2807.
So I am trying to chalk this up to coincidence, but no more than a week after asking this question (and receiving great advice from globalgreg and jdsmoothie), a lightning strike hits in our front yard and zaps most of my gadgets, including the 2807. The unit powers up, but will not take a signal of any kind (HDMI, tuner, etc.). A microprocessor reset didn't help. Assuming it's a goner.
An new AVR-2112 arrived today, but I am a receiver short. Lesson learned -- I will never call another Denon "long in the tooth" again.
