The $5200 AVR-5308CI receiver has a Realta chip (step up from Reon), as does the $7000 AVP-A1HD prepro. As you say, only the top of the line Denons get the Silicon Optix chips.
A mistake, in my opinion - but I guess they know their market better than I do...
It looks like the new B&K Reference 70 prepro and 707 receiver will also have Reon processors.
