I bought a H/K AVR430 last year, and I'm been very happy with the sound matched with a lower end, but still very decent Klipsch 5.2 speaker set up. I bought this receiver based on all great reviews from the knowledgeable people on this forum. However, the reviews from the magazines are lukewarm at best. I just wonder what the love affair is with Denon, and why H/K consistently gets short shrift. Any thoughts???
