Hello everyone. \nThere have been numerous posts comparing the Cinema 50 to the Denon x3800h. For good reason as they share similar components and features and are both made in Vietnam. \nI would like to look at things from a budget perspective. Both the Cinema 50 and the X4800h are priced the same. Using that as the measurement of comparison, which unit is better and why? It would be great to hear from someone who has heard them side by side after room correction. To me, the years long analogy that Denon is brighter and more detailed making it better suited for home theater where as the Marantz is warmer with a wider sound stage, making more suitable for music enthusiasts completely goes out the window if you properly calibrate Audyssey MultEQ XT using the app to tweak the curves\/filters to get the sound you want. Theoretically, you should be able to make them sound almost exactly the same. So I can't help but wonder, looks and marketing aside, that with the X4800h being made in Japan utilizing better components and having more options and features, would it not be the superior choice based on price and non biased common sense? \nThis is a question, not an attack against Marantz or fans thereof. I much prefer the looks and prestige of having the Marantz, but it just seems to me that if you properly utilize Audyssey correction, wouldn't the Denon x4800h be the obvious better choice? \nThanks for your thoughts.
