    Hi,

    Is the major difference in sound quality between different AV receivers in the amplification hardware?

    For example, would say a Denon 2809 pre-out'ed to an Audiolab 8000X7 sound better/same as a Denon 4308/Yamaha Z7 ?


    Peter.

    i havnt heard that combo, but im sure there would be a good difference at the extremes of the market - say a £300 AV receiver compared to a £3K pre/pro setup, but in the middle with like high end Onkyo, Denon, Pioneer receivers at £1K+ and say a £3K Marantz pre/pro ...well I dont thing the difference is quite as pronounced....from what ive head anyway


    Im looking for an upgrade from an Onkyo 905 + power amps and havnt found anything yet HD capapable thats made me want to splash out - I could probably gain more just having my room sorted out a bit better, rather than spending another £3K on a processor ...so far anyway :smashin:
