Thumbs up Re: New high-end Denon processors

Z Man,


That was a heck of a review you just did on the Denon. I have to be careful asking you another question. LOL!! You wrote this review, like you were Andrew Robinson!!!

Well, I think you just helped out Denon`s profits for the end of this first quarter of the year. It definitely sounds like the Denon is a winner.

Wow, that was quite the compliment. Thanks.

About the only things I have not delved into that deeply yet is the Audyssey MultEQ XT, and the Wi-Fi and Ethernet audio streaming capabilities. Once I get a bit more time I will report back on my findings.

Yeah I probably did help out Denon a bit. But It's well deserved as their new preamp is definitely a winner.

I just gave my CC# for this pre/pro, five were in stock so I should have it before too long. I can't wait to get all those new codecs in my main rig!!!!!

You're right, for everything that the Denon does, and it being a fully balanced design, $7,000 in the world of high end audio is a bargain. It's interesting, but I'm seeing many current Krell, Anthem, Lexicon, Meridian, Halcro, and Theta owners, ditching their processors and going with this new Denon. That says something as these people settle for nothing but the best for their HT's.
