i know this is on the wrong page and you're probably not going with those titans anymore but...

that sounds a bit fishy to me. unless there is some very new news that hasn't made it to these pages, denon is still one of the top avr makers out there (obviously there is the more expensive, exclusive high-end stuff).

the yammy may ba a tad warmer sounding than the denon. maybe? so if the dealer knew you didn't like bright that might explain it but seems unlikely. marantz is warmer generally than denon, but again, speakers will have a much larger influence on the sound character than the avr.

Stereos include vintage Sony receivers/amps into vintage AR and KEF speakers.

I actually have an entire Paradigm setup and run the entire thing using a Harmon/Kardon AVR110. It's a little older but it powers my large speakers with very little effort. The circuitry in a Harmon/Kardon is well suited for the higher end sound systems. Hope that helps.

Denon would be fine, personally I would go with a Marantz though, what's your budget?
