I purchased a Denon 4802 and within 3 days I exchanged it for an Integra 8.2 (same as 989).
I Denon was very thin and shallow sounding and horrible with stereo music.
This is only my opinion. As always Listen for your self and buy what sounds best to you.

how come there are so many model numbers for the same unit?

The AVC-A11SR is a AMP. and the 4802 is a Receiver, beside the tuner
there is no differece between them.
The only things lacking are THX Ultra II, an AC-3 RF input, trigger outputs and a decent remote, the last two omissions are annoying when you realise that the American AVR-4802 equivalent ships with trigger terminals, the recently enhanced AKTIS RC-8000 LCD touch panel remote and an integral tuner.

AVC-A11SR in my country have THX 2 processing, the set-up menu inside the same like 5803(AVC-A1SR).

I have the AVC A11SR and can't believe what i'm reading.
The AVC A11SR is great for music and surround.
I have not heard the other mentioned, so they can be better for all i know.
The power rating stated by Denon is actuelly lower than Home Cinema Choice measured in their review:
Manufacturer's rated output: 7x 125W (0.05% THD, 8ohms, 20Hz-20kHz)
Measured power output @ 1kHz:
166.2W (8ohms, 0.77% THD)
Fidelity firewall: 156.0W @ 0.03% THD (8ohms, 1kHz)
