Please give me some opinion, as far as 5.1(not 6.1)decoding/processing is concern, which is better t742 or sr5300? which is more realistic as far as sound movement across the room is concern.

thanks.

it is not as much as the decoding that determines the sound movement, it is actually the encoding, by the sound mixers at the source. Hence the big difference between DTS and DD. It is the effort and technique of the recording and the mixing is done that can make or break the audio qualities of a DVD. Ambient sounds, atmosphere, background sounds are all encoded by the sound editors, the decoding and the panning of these sounds are pretty much decoded in one way...the reproduction and delivery is of course a different matter.
all else aside, I like the qualities of the NAD T742.
cheers

Anon, listen to them both. They are both excellent. I would say, that the Marantz sr5300 is a step up over the T742. The T753 is probably a half step better than the sr5300. I own both the T763 and the SR5300.

Anonymous,
that's exactly what I was referring. The challenge now is to try and listen to them both over the same set of loudspeakers and then decide which qualities you like. Bring music and movies that you like so that you can pick out the nuances and other characteristics that you can hear or don't hear, for that matter.
Let the fun begin!
cheers
