I bought a x4400h, but I wish I had kept the x3400h for my other room for a 2 channel system and sell my Marantz AVP instead. Yes, the x3400h is that good, sounds incredible but true, to me anyway.:D In my opinion, it is the best value for $599, beats any current two channel receiver or even integrated amps at that price point.\n\nWell, i guess I’ll keep my options open to an avr as well. I just figured where stereo units use less tech and keep things simple, they’d have better dacs and overall better sound. I guess I’ve been looking at it wrong.
