I'm considering upgrading my Yamaha RX-V596 receiver to either a Denon 3802 or Marantz 7200 receiver. I have Paradigm Monitor 7 mains, cc-370 center, and mini monitor rears. I have a PDR-10 sub that will hopefully soon be upgraded to a SVS. The Yamaha was what I could afford last year and while I am mostly happy with the movie performance, listening to music just didn't sound very good. 2 channel was the worst, and movie soundtracks and DTS music was almost as bad. Highs were harsh and bright, and while sub-80hz bass was ample, the 90-200hz region had an audible db dip that made rock music sound boring without that punchy bass guitar which sometimes was close to inaudible. The only time bass guitar sounds good is on the town cable station that plays jazz music in the background (they have the bass turned up excessivly loud, but because my system quiets these frequencies, it sounds just about right.) Some music is just absolutely unlistenable as are many Playstation 2 games (The brightness is excessive!). I've tried changing speaker position, but that upper bass dip was always present. I'm looking for a warm sounding receiver to bring the musicality to my Paradigms. Clean, punchy bass is a must! Do the tone controls for these two control the mains and the center? I hate how the Yamaha just controls the mains leaving the center unmatched in sound tone. Also, do both of these receivers have comparable features or does one have more than the other? I hope to also add an HDTV soon, so support for that is a must. Pro-Logic always sounded lifeless to me...I'm looking forward to hearing PL-II. Thanks for any help!
