The new Denon AVR-4306 looks like the one I'm going to finally pick up after 2+ years of waiting. I was going to get the AVR-3806, but for an extra $700 or so, the AVR-4306 adds a few extra features that might be useful. At $1999, it should street for around $1400 or less hopefully (same as the $1999 Yamaha RX-V4600). This would be the start of my migration to HD. Still seems like a damn waste if you ask me as there is very little HD content . BluRay/HD-DVD doesn't look like it'll make Christmas either.
