There's a new recent update to the IMAX Enhanced feature of our 8805's. It includes the manual Audio Settings of the High Pass filter, Low Pass filter, and Subwoofer mode. Firmware changes to:

Firmware Version: 7300-5254-9181-3094
DTS Version: 3.90.50.54

I have a question for all the 8805 owners: I am in the process of buying one myself but curious into how much better is it from the 7705? With the Htp-1 around the corner, Im very much interested in that unit as well. I guess it sums down to would getting a 7705 be the better buy over the 8805? Or would spending the money on the Htp-1 over the 8805 worth it as well?

I plan to at least audition the 7705 or the 8805 ,as well maybe giving the Htp-1 a try. As much as I like Audyssey, I am quite fond of Dirac as well. This will be my first pre-amp so I don’t mind doing a demo and return situation.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello there and welcome to the club.

From AVS:

While the AV8805 has more channels, the benefit is not the more channels but other quality features it has over the 7705. I get price is a factor.

Even if you donít utilize all 13.2 channels the 8805 being made in Sound Unitedís reference Shirakawa factory in Japan is the beginning of the story. This factory is reserved for the AV8805, Reference 2 channel gear (PM10, SA10 etc) Denon 8500 and the new Classť gear.

The 7705 is built in Vietnam.

The 8805 starts with a Toroidal power supply, this feeds 4 large capacitors. 2 of those are dedicated to the 15 HDAM modules, 1 per channel. The other 2 caps are for the rest of the unit.

The 7705 has a single PCB for all the channels instead of an individual PCBs per channel like on the 8805.

The 8805 also has 8 stereo DACs, 1 DAC for every 2 channels, instead of a single multi channel DAC like on the 7705.

The 8805 DAC is optimized for the front L&R channel, and then copied for all other channels in pairs with the additional DACs.

The 8805 has a dual core processor.

Among other features such as the copper plated 3 piece chassis, there are several reasons the 30 pound 8805 is 2x the price of the 23 pound 7704/7705.

8805. See the 15 circuit boards behind the display. Those are the 15 HDAM modules. 1 per channel.

7705. Notice the empty space? The extra 8 lbs in the 8805 didnít come from no where.
