    OK, I have finally reduced it down to these two choices, both are the same price and seem to have the same features!

    Movies/TV/Gamecube only, no music.

    Which is best???? :lease:

    I would go for the Denon as the Marantz are more weighted towards music than movies.

    You cannot even compare...

    The Sr5400 is on the same league than the Denon 2105...
    And I bet the 5400 is more musical and has better amps than the 2105!
    More features in the 2105.

    Only the 1905 can be compared to the Sr4400/4500...

    No doubt, go for the 5400 for both music and movies!!!
    And what a sound...

    Decisions decisions!!!

    I have also been offered a Denon 1603 or 3801 within budget.

    Would either of these be better than the Marantz???

    Very old models... not worth it... Go for the 5400! :thumbsup:

    Only other options, Denon 2105 or Marantz new soon to come Sr4500/5500.

    But at the prices available, Sr5400 no doubt!

    I agree with you about the musical ability of the Marantz but Andrew isnt going to use it as a music machine at all. If he could afford it I would have suggested a Yamaha amp as they are one of hte best movie machines. Something like the old AX640SE . All the new Yamaha's are out of his range :(

    The Marantz is a good amp though. :)

    Remember? :cool:

    The 5400 can give you 5x90 REAL watts, tell me any other AVReceiver in it's class that can do that and put you "In" the action of the movies like that?
