Would you guys recommend the Marantz or Denon over Sony's top-of the line STR-DA5800ES or even the 2800ES? Yeah I know this aint a Sony thread, but I figure I'd get some input from you guys. I have a minor issue with my current Sony STR-DA3600ES which is annoying. Every once in a while, I get a sound drop out with a random blu ray title. I have a Sony BDP-S790 paired with the receiver using a Panasonic GT30 50 inch plamsa tv. Everything is connected with good quality HDMI cables. It doesn't really matter what title I throw in, but it does it it during random parts of a blu ray disc. It never does this with DVDs. Usually within the first 20 minutes is when the sound cuts off and it does it only ONCE. If the movie passes the 20 minute mark, that's an indication that the rest of the movie will play fine and I will NOT get any audio drop outs after this. Yes, I know this sounds weird, but it's true. Look at the Official Sony str-da3600es thread. A couple of guys complained of the same problem with their ES receiver, so I'm not alone. Make a long story short. I want a good receiver that is equivlent or better than the Sony ES receiver i got now. Marantz and Denon are at the top of my list, but I can't decide which one is best? It's a shame because I already called Sony to complain of the issue and since it's intermittent, they cannot authorize a repair. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
