Had the HK 435 "baby"-brother of the flagship 7300, and now have a Pio 74. The 7300 has Faroudja video upconversion which adds to the price over the 435/635 (or, at least I think that's what the huge difference was). So, if that's important to you, you may still consider it. I'd give the 74 the edge on movies and HK the edge with music. Aside from the crossovers (HKs have the quad crossovers), I'd give the 74 the edge on useability/customizability (mainly 6 MCACC presets). Generally, thumbs up for both though.
