You're right, for everything that the Denon does, and it being a fully balanced design, $7,000 in the world of high end audio is a bargain. It's interesting, but I'm seeing many current Krell, Anthem, Lexicon, Meridian, Halcro, and Theta owners, ditching their processors and going with this new Denon. That says something as these people settle for nothing but the best for their HT's.
