Hi! Sorry for my bad english!
Well, I'm looking for a very long time for a replacement/upgrade for my Onkyo TX-NR5010 and the 2CH performance (music) is very important to me.
I really don't care about "hi-end explosions and bullets etc" but I care about a great bass, good textures on vocals, saxophones, very good soundstage, tonal balance (bla bla bla)... and this are my question:
Is the Denon X8500H a replacement/upgrade for my Onkyo TX-NR5010 in audio quality?
Onkyo uses Burr-Brown DAC, is this AKM4490 better? I'm very curious about this chipset
