Roland - With respect to Dionyz, there is doubt.
All I can tell you is what I heard.
And there was no doubt that the Denon sounded just plain bad with the Klipsch RF-83s. It had a lifeless, muddy sound.

There's also the possible factor of auto setups being used or not being used when the amp was setup in the listening room. And any number of other settings people may have messed with.

With the Yamaha and Onkyo, these speakers sounded fantastic - full of detail and dynamics.
When I switched over to the Denon, all the detail and dynamics of this speaker were gone - sounded muffled.
...Denon just sounded bad with these Klipsch speakers, as if it did not have the guts of the other two receivers.
I would not buy it even if it cost 50% of the Yamaha.

....that it is quite important to take into account that older Klipsch vs. newer Klipsch make a huge difference in pairing. I run speakers from the Epic line (CF's), have some KG's as well. The sound from the current lineup of Klipsch seems to require different umpf then the older ones. That should be factored into this conversation as well.
