    yup as you may have guessed from the subject title, I am currently looking at these two recievers- they appear to have a very similar spec. Apart from the yamaha being THX certified and giving 10w per channel more- the only other thing I am concerned over is that it has only 6 inputs for multi channel in (combined front/SB), where as the denon has 8 (two surround back in addition)- I plan on purchasing a DVD/A player in the near future so need to consider this carefully.

    I am planning to run Monitor Audio's Bronze speaker kit, with additional b2s as rear surrounds, and a different sub. Thinking of REL Quake- but any other thoughts/suggestions as well as on the denon/yammy situation would be much appreciated =)

    cheers

    It might have to be the 2805 as the 1400's are a little scarce on the ground now. If you have the rooma nd are willing to got the import way you should look at the SVS PB10isd @ www.svsubwoofers.com or the BK XLS200 or Vita 100 from www.bkelec.com

    Since you mentioned the DVDA i'm assuming you're into music and I suggest the Denon over the Yamaha (just by a tiny tiny bit!) - also note that both have more than enogh power for the MA Bronze range (just heard them at a friend's - they sound great and have not even run-in yet).

    As for the SUB - haven't heard the SVS but from what I've read in these forums I should (will) get one, so should you!

    From memory, the RXV1400 has a 6 channel input as standard, but has the option to add the addition 2 channels, by assigning an unused audio input as the other 2 channels making it 8 channel input. You could check this by having a look at the Yamaha website though, as this is only by memory.
