    One of these will power my Canton CD1's.

    I can get the Yamaha for £313 and the Marantz for £399. I prefer the Marantz on looks both have similar features but I have not auditioned them yet, gonna try and do that this weekend.

    Be interested in everyone's opinion.

    Cheers

    BTW I have a totally separate system for my music so I'm only interested in the movie capabilities of these amps.

    If you're only interested in the movie aspect then the 750SE has to be a strong contender, although it doesn't have a tuner if that's important to you.

    I haven't heard the 5500, I believe it may not have auto-setup (although I could be wrong) which the 750SE does have. Whilst not essential it can help by giving you a guide as to how you set up your system.
