Marantz 4300 vs 5300


The power ratings are about the same but I noticed that the 5300 has less THD, at .04, and the 4300 has THD of .08, off the top of my head.

Will I notice much difference in SQ? The 4300 has all the bells and whistle I need for the foreseeable future.

I don't think you will hear the difference in the distortion levels--they are both well below the audio threshold. But you may be able to hear the difference in the signal to noise ratio, which is much better on the 5300, especially with its greater headroom. But, then again, you may not--not everyone hears these things.

If you can afford the better unit, I would get it.
