They're both around the same price point, and offer similar features but which one would you go with for mainly listening to Music via Coax Optical?
I have Polk Monitor 60 floorstanding fronts, a cheap Onkyo Sub, Def. Tech BP-1 Rears and a cheap Onkyo center channel for now so you can understand why most of my use is for music; my setup isn't very ideal for movies but I DO have a BluRay player & 32" Aquos.
Basically, I'm looking for the receiver that will give the best sound musically. I've read some awesome reviews on the Pioneer, but I've also read on many online forums that Denon's sound is excellent for music. Can someone point me in the right direction? I'm off to Best Buy in about 45 minutes.
Just an update - went with the AVR591, and it's a VERY welcome upgrade over the TX-SR304 I was using previously. Totally changed the imaging of these speakers, the highs got a lot clearer and less harsh, theres more depth and texture to voices and the soundstage is a lot better.
