And if something is going to hinder me from doing that, I have a problem!!
Yes that's exactly what it's all about! Something that puts a smile on your face every time you use it. For me the Denon AVP does just that. And while I would love to own the Levinson 502, would I want to sacrifice the features I really want/need for that extra bit of sound quality? For me I want all the features, functions and excellent sound quality. The Levinson 502 will give me excellent sound quality but it won't give me all the features and functions I want and need.
When I sit down and turn on my AV setup, I not only enjoy the music (and movies), but I also feel happy knowing that I bought a product that gives me everything that I wanted.
