Perhaps it's going with the theory that due to the Denon AVR pricing nowadays it is advisable to also purchase a blood pressure monitor!

I’m hoping their expertise in manufacturing super high quality components has a positive influence on the manufacturing of audio stuff :)

Maybe they are wanting to make musical electric toothbrushes or a multichannel surround sound thermometer?

Denon will be renamed Doctor Denon and Marantz will become Matron.
