    i am about to upgrade from good old pro logic. i am looking at:

    Denon 1804
    Marantz 4400

    i don't really want to go higher than £300. the rest of my system comprises a denon dvd700, mission M34 floorstanders, M3 centre and M30 rears.

    i like to listen to a wide variety of music, from cinematic orchestra to slayer! i am looking for a receiver that will be more about the sound quality than the features it has, that will ideally compliment the other equipment i have. i am not looking for pre-outs for power amps or anything like that.

    how different is the marantz 5400 from the above two? if it is a noticable improvement i might stretch the budget... ;) a listening test is not really feasible due to time constraints and proximity to dealers.

    which of these would you recommend, or others if you feel they require a mention.

    cheers

    They are superb. I got a MS premeire+ system from them and was informed every step of the way what was happoning. I happily recommend them. :) Also when the fuse blew on the 309 they knew exactly what was happoning and sent me replacemnets within days. Very impressed :smashin:

    If you want another opinion on the 5400 OSE speak to Tons of Fun as he has used it.

    Yep I second Dfour on Peter Tyson service. Ordered my speakers from them and they happily changed their advertised package to allow me to have different front speakers; 1 of the front and 1 of the rear speakers were damaged in transit and they were all replaced with absolutely no hastle and was kept fully informed of the original purchase/delivery and the replacement/delivery :smashin:
