Looking to update my stereo and AV setup. I have been looking at the Denon 3312 and have come to the conclusion it has nice functions but possibly crap amplification, much like many non-flagship level AV receivers. At the same time I have come across a deal on the Marantz Av7005. Which from what I can tell is a cousin of the previous gen Denon 3311. Not clear however if Denon downgraded quality from the 3311 to the 3312. Question is whether there would be a significant difference in stereo (and or AV) sound quality between these two units, in the event that I would be using external amplification anyway?
