    Marantz/Denon

    What is better Marantz or Denon? I know they are the same company but it seems that Marantz is always pricier.

    When it comes to these two companies, I would shop for the best price on the features I wanted.

    I would have no problem in owing or recommending either. Actually, I do own both a Denon AVR and a Marantz pre/pro.

    The SR-5010 looks like a good option. It has a ton of features including Dobly Atmos and DTS:X, when it's available.

    It also has pre outputs if you ever wanted to add a dedicated power amp.

    Thanks. I just bought a Nano AVR DL with Dirac Live. At this point I'll wait for an avr and apply more room correction.

    I went ahead and sold the nano. The reason is you have to have it on PCM for it to work. I'm considering the 5010 or even 6010. At the same time Dirac Live will be on receivers later on.

    Seems like the newer 7.1 AVR S-710W Denon priced under $500.00 is specified to handle 4ohm speakers. I have an older analog Prologic Kenwood that has the 4ohm setting, and I'm trying to justify upgrading to the Denon. I don't use a subwoofer. My front speakers are Cerwin Vegas with a 12" woofer which are rated at 4ohms. There is a cheaper discontinued 5.1 that is also specified to handle them, but it seems to have had display problems. My Kenwood still works and sounds good.

    If your Kenwood only has Prologic, you're missing out on a lot of great soundtracks especially on Blu-ray. Even for basic cable or satellite viewing the newer Prologic IIx or NEO:6 is much better than the original Prologic. I would make that upgrade in a heartbeat.
