    Hi
    lately I have been receving some e-mails and opinion, and it seems the world is splitted in 2 parts, who support Denon and who stands for Marantz.
    So far, I still in the middle, and can't take a decision, between Denon 1905 and Marantz SR4500.

    Can any of you help please??

    pippo33, can you get a listen to either where you are. If you can, that is really the only way you can decide. It is how I decided on Denon (Marantz was not a choice for me) and I knew I would like the sound. If you can't get a demo where you are then tell us what your requirements are. (Music, film, big speakers or small etc.)

    Hi
    requirements are:
    Hi-Fi + Home Theater.
    We will buy later on a nice set of speakers.
    It will be used for Home theater, but the most important usage is Hi-Fi.
    I am sure that both Denon and Marantz are ok for Home Theater usage, what I want to know is which one is better for Hi-Fi usage

    Thanks
