Yeah, I've got a refurb SR6003 and it's great so far (been a year with no issues)
Looks like the Marantz Receiver is refurbished, any experience with their refurbished items?
Assuming the price were the same, I would lean towards the yamaha. But if the marantz is cheaper, then the marantz.
Assuming the price were the same would you get the Marantz or the Yamaha?
I think it will have better amps and that's the most important part of a receiver. I think Denon is a great company but I would not get those receivers. The Denon 4311CI would be my #1 choice for a dedicated processor in a high end setup, though.
Finally, any particular reason you prefer the Yamaha receiver over the Denon ones?
