I have been using an old Onkyo Receiver (TX-SV444) for over 12 years. It's nothing fancy but it sounds great in my medium-sized room.


Recently, I inherited a Denon Receiver (DRA-395). I have listened to both of them and honestly I can't really tell much of a difference, although given that it takes me at least 5 minutes to switch between the two, it's hard to be confident in my comparison.


In any case, I don't have use for more than one receiver and I'm trying to figure out it the new one is an upgrade at all, and whether I should use it to replace my old Onkyo. The Onkyo has more speaker connections (for center and rear channels), but the Denon seems to have multiroom functionality. I don't really need either fuction at this time - I just use the receiver for two speakers and a sub to listen to music. Also, I can't seem to make an easy comparison between the power output of the two receivers, so I don't know whether the Denon is an upgrade in that regard, either.


Anyway, I'm a novice when it comes to stereo equipment so I thought I'd ask for any opinions here. Thanks in advance.

No thoughts?


Ok, well let me add this followup question. I also inherited a Speakercraft BB1235. Can someone explain to me exactly what this is for, and which of the two receivers above would be better to use with it?


Sorry, I've just got no clue when it comes to this stuff. I don't want to throw something away that might be of use later, which is why I've posted here.
