Re: Help me pick my new receiver.
The Denon is a bit softer and more lush, the Marantz is more on the sterile side, with more accuracy. Your choice will depend on your taste, but for music, I like them both, but in different ways and for different reasons. Try to go listen to both and see why I say this, and above all decide with your own ears as you will be the one living with the decision.
