Has anybody ever compared the two? I currently have a Marantz 7200. Originally the receiver was meant to power my Perfomance line Paradigms. But I recently went all out for Paradigm Reference line setup. The result is not what I expected. I expected more clarity and midrange. The speakers sounded better at my friend's house using Denon 1602. Would an upgrade to a denon 3803 or pioneer 45tx be any help. These are the two I have narrowed down to. They're about the same price. I use it for 70/30 HT/music.
