    I came across this during my web travels:

    Denon and Marantz are going to merge operations. I would like to think that only something good could come from this. Well, maybe nothing will change. Hopefully neither brand will lose ground as a result.
    By the way, I don't know where this thread fits best, but this board seemed reasonable since it gets a lot of traffic.

    I just noticed that this was already posted on the Receivers/Separates/Amps board.

    I thought Marantz was owned by Philips.

    Keith,

    Marantz is still majority owned by Philips... "as its largest shareholder" Philips has a 49% stake in Marantz...

    according to the Marantz website press release area.

    Eric.

    I just hope they don't try anything creative with merging the names. "Dentz" just doesn't inspire confidence in mid- to high-end audio products! [​IMG]
