Which Yamaha did you used to have? I've heard that apples-to-apples, Denon is usually less conservative with their receiver power estimates which would lead me to believe that their 120 wpc might out-do Yamaha's 120 wpc. As far as the Yamaha 1400 or 2400, you're preaching to the converted...the 2400 was my first choice (and may still be). I have found myself with the need for 3 component inputs, which led me to the interest in the 3805. I definitely need a receiver with some meat on its bones that can drive Paradigm Studio 100's until my continuously vapid A/V budget recovers from whichever receiver I end up getting and supplement the setup with a front-end amp.
I had the 2400 for about a month. I really liked it is alot, but thought the Denon (with my Denon 5900 DVD) would be a better fit. The "Denon iLink" is pretty slick, but having to use analog multi channel inputs for SACD really defeats the purpose. If I didn't have to do that I would be using two wires into the receiver. Ilink for all SACD, DVDA/V , CD and the Optical from my Direct TV receiver. As you can tell, I only use the receiver for Audio no video passing. I'm still trying to figure out if this is the one for me. That Yammy is pretty sweet.
