I'm going to replace my Denon. My choice is Marantz SR5500/SR4500 or Yamaha RX-V750/RX-V650. Can anybody help me to choose which one is better for my Wharfedale. (Movie 50% and mucis 50%). Thanks a lot.
I personally like the Yamaha, but it's about personal preference. I never thought much of Marantz. I think Marantz is a shadow of what it once was before they were bought out. I know nothing though, so take it with a grain of salt.
Marantz owners will say otherwise. You will have to look at the features and perceived quality and get whichever impresses you most.
I'm on the same boat...I'm considering Yamaha RX-V750, Marantz SR5500 and Denon AVR-2105. Pardon my ignorance, but it looks like Marantz SR5500 doesn't have bass management, will it be a big disadvantage over the others?
