Hey, that's why I'm still shoppin', brother. Haven't bought the Denon or Onykyo. Owned units from both over the years, and the denon was better. Granted this was about 8-9 years ago, and the tech has sure changed. But the Onyko crapped out and the Denon is rolling along nicely at my parents.
You're also making the assumption that the implementation of the DCDi video chip in the Denon is inferior vs. implementation of the Silicon Optrix one in the Onkyo. Except I haven't seen any side by side objective (note: NOT subjective)reviews yet. Have you? Furthermore, the issue that arose a few posts above, that issue I commented on, was the performance of the Onyko with a particular Comcast STB. I happen to have Comcast and amazingly, the same model STB. So, when I hear that someone has an issue with that combo, it certainly raises an alarm. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.
