Denon revealed newer generation of its mid-range AV receiver: AVC-3920 outputting at 120W per channel at 8 Ohms with amazing <0.05% total harmonic distortion and signal to noise ratio at 102dB. The unit features a new technology called Dynamic Discrete Surround Circuit or D.D.S.C. and Audyssey Multi ROOM EQ TX room correction functionalities. AVC-3920 is driven by a 32 bit DSP, reportedly newer Analog Devices' SHARC series. Analog audio output is sampled at 24bit/192KHz. Denon claims that power supply was "stabilized" and can produce equal cleaner wattage on all channels simultaneously. The receiver also sports a variable crossover for freaks to tweaks with. The bands are 40/60/80/90/100/110/120/150/200/250Hz.
As if the unit lacks many great characteristics, let me add one more - HDMI capable unit that can upscale to 1080p. Truly amazing piece from Denon. It will be available in Japan early October of 2005 for 173,250 Yen (about $1540).
