" I've tested various tracks including the "Chriss Isaak's Wicked Game", "Dire Strait- You & Your Friend".
"To me, they sound wonderful"
As I said, I'm not interested in a war. I'm not even saying anything about your opinion. It's your opinion and you are welcome to it. As I mentioned, I don't own a Denon and never have, so I don't have an opinion on the subject.
But my reading comprehension is very good, thank you. It says you tested various tracks and they sounded wonderful. And your review had no caveats about style of music, etc. So if there were any, there is no way for anyone to know that. If your opinion has changed, that's fine. But please don't insult my intelligence. Thanks.
That's it from me on this .
Bare with me, but since you had the need to copy paste half of my blog, i'll tell you this, there is always something better out there and we don't know it as we haven't tested them yet.
And since you said you haven't got any experience in Denon, you countering me becomes trully pointless.
I've had 2 denons in the past, & it was my mistake that I bought them, cause I didn't do my research well enough. I went with the hype that was once created by some audiophiles, and suffered all these years with poor stereo performance. Lack of details, lack of midbass/mids.
There were surely some good moments, but majority of the time it was bad.
I had to use the audyssey to boost the dialogue volume on denon, with Yamaha I rarely had to do that. To get the Denon sound good or say decent, it requires more effort then the Yamaha. Trust me.
One guy named "John" said the same, he didn't like his new X4500H reciever but preferred his $250 Onkyo for movies.
I'm not the only one arguing about it, there are plenty of people out there now.
One example being in this forum itself, someone recently opened a new thread Hagel H90 vs Denon something. Go read that.
You won't believe us until you hear it yourself. Mark my words.
Mr. William here in this forum hasn't done an A/B comparison so he doesn't know what we have experienced.
You don't feel the sound by looking at measurements alone, your ears are the witness. There are some things which are immeseaurable.
Also, let me ask you one simple question. Can you measure your ears? Is there any proof that every flat curve is same in every brands of reciever?
Ask this to yourself and then come back to me.
