Also consider that each manfacturer implements it's own flavor of Audyssey which can dramatically alter what you hear from one brand to another. I purchased a Denon 3608 or 3806 (I forget the exact model number) some years ago and no matter how much or how long I fiddled with the Audyssey settings that receiver never sounded good in my room so I ditched it. I now have an NAD prepro with a custom implementation of Audyssey that I can select, the NAD Audyssey curve, and without a doubt it sounds simply fantastic in my room. When comparred to the pure Audyssey curve the difference is night and day. So its not only which one sounds best, but which implementation of each sounds best.
