Ah yes, the eternal battle I'm stuck in the middle here, unfortunatly, I cannot decide between a Marantz 5200 or a Denon 1802. Options and power wise, I prefer the Marantz (on paper) due to the extra powered channel (6.1 X 85w) as opposed to the 5.1 @ 80w of the Denon, plus it have a great deal of s-video in/out's. On the other hand, I have heard the "rumor's" about some issue's with the Marantz products as of late? This is basically the ONLY real issue stopping me from picking up the 5200 in this case. Both are listed as 799.99 Canadian, but I'm sure I can work out a bit better price. Sound wise, I had trouble deciding which is "better", but I don't exactly have an expert ear. My setup is as follows: Monitor 5's (front) mini-monitor's (2 +1 for center rear if I buy the Marantz) CC-370 center PW-2200 sub. Any help is appriciated in the matter.
