I have never listened to either receiver. I own the Denon 4800 and it does an exceptional job with music. Obviously the best advice would be to demo both receivers with speakers that match you own and pick the one you like the best. At any rate let us know which one you pick and why....I'd be interested to know, because an upgrade to the 4802 may be in my near future.
