OK guys I am looking for a receiver to upgrade my denom. I have been told that yamahas are very good. Today I went to a local sound component store and those people are by appointment only and only cary what they feel are the best speakers, subs and receivers. HE told me to go with marants. He also told me to go with paradighm speakers and paradighm sub. Woudl you guys consider the MArants reciever to be better than denom and yamaha.
