    I´m from Spain...i have 2 ways.
    200 Euros more in 7400 (AProx 140 pounds)
    I read in some Forums that sound is very cloused...and 5400 OSE sounds better in pure Stereo mode
    What i must do?
    5400 OSE or 7400???
    I love 7400 remote control...but there is apreciable difference in sound?
    THANKS!

    Don't know about anyone else, but the SR7400 to me, is one of if not THE most musical amp available for less than £800rrp

    Even Home Cinema Choice magazine noted this.

    Go for the SR7400, you won't be dissappointed.

    What small advantages the OSE has in stereo are far outweighed by the 7400's extra features and multichannel performance.

    Have you tried Mordaunt-Short? I have the Avant range and I think they are excellent all round. Sound, build, looks and value.

    But you wont go far wrong with B&W, Monitor Audio, Acoustic Energy, KEF etc..

    It may be an idea to listen to a few before you decide.
