just something to consider...
I can't see considerable savings using a non am tuner over a fm. IF denon did indeed do any market research, they would find people at least in ca like am radio. However, I do not tune into any analog ota programming in my house. I either stream siriusxm ir or play media from my library.
I just don't see a lot of people sitting at home jamming to fm/am on home receivers these days. It still doesn't make sense to just omit the am tuner lol.
I'll reserve my judgement on Denon when I see the legit specs on their top tier stuff. I don't think the low end market avr should be packed with a whole lot of features anyhow (below $500).
