Default What's the best new AVR on the market?

Has anyone compared the Denon 3808CI with the new Yamaha RX-Z11 or even the Onkyo or Sony ES line? I've got a Denon 3805 and I'm considering upgrading. But it seems like the competition is getting fierce.

Well I didn't compare the 3808CI to the Yamaha RX-Z11 because the Yamaha is 3 times the cost of the Denon ($5000 vs $1600)

I did compare the Denon 3808CI to the Sony 5300ES & the Onkyo TX-SR875 & I chose the Denon, Check out this thread for my reasons & more info on the Denon.
I'm very happy with my choice but you should find a good dealer & listen to all your choices with movies & music you are familiar with before making a final decision.
You are correct about competition being fierce, this is a price point a lot of companies seem to want to be in & are releasing some great new products.
I personally looked for 2 years before I found what I wanted in the Denon.

Thanks Moose. Hey, what do you think of the Denon 3808 CI as opposed to the 4308CI? Is it worth moving up from the 3800 series to the 4300 series?

It's got more HDMI inputs, WiFi internet connection, HD radio & better amps.
For me at the time it wasn't worth an extra $1000 over the 3808ci but as good as the 3808ci makes my Paradigms sound I wonder just how much better the 4308ci would sound.
