    Hi all, been doing lots of reading on here about the marantz sr4300 and sr5300. Ive come to the conclusion i cant really afford the 5300 although its seems a lot better for not much more money :-(

    hense my decision is to be between:

    Marantz sr4300 = (price = current system trade in + £50)


    Sony strdb780 = (price = current system trade in + £50)

    Can anyone point me in the right direction ??

    I understand the marantz will perform better with 2 channel stereo sources, which is important to me as i want nice sound from my cd player ( marantz 63mkii - old but gold :) along with good dolby/dts performance, however im a little concerned about the delay when switching digital source's which is why the sony is still on my mind.

    is there anything else thats a major difference between these 2 models?

    I must admit i like the fact the marantz drives all channnels via seperate amp - which i beleive the sony dosen't ??

    any help info and advice would be appreciated,

    Many thanks
