Here's another observation I've encountered....

"From what I have read on various forums, in the last couple of years both brands essentially share the same internals nowadays, and should sound the same. I have read many times that the Denon AVR-3312 and Marantz SR7005 are pretty much the same receiver with different faceplates..."

That's funny because last night I was reading through a thread, where the writer thought that Pioneer and Denon excelled at movies, and Marantz excelled at music. He said the Marantz had more clarity in the upper end, with the others having more power for explosions, etc. YMMV.

Personally, it's probably all in 1) speakers, room, settings, amp reserve power, and 2) your expectations.

speaking of 3312, It's Amazon's gold box deal of the day.

I discovered that earlier on and purchased it at the 549.99 price. Talk about luck.
