    Hello Bruno,
    I guess you know what I think... [​IMG]
    Do a search on the receivers and you'll find a lot of information.
    Good luck!

    Hi Bruno,
    I have a 4802 and absolutely love it. Both receivers are decent, I just think you need to listen to each and deceide on the one that best fits your needs.[​IMG]

    Bruno,
    In the U.S., the Marantz SR 8200 is about $1000 less than the Denon 4802. I have the 8200 and love its sound, remote and it is upgradable via RS232 port. I am running Paradigm Monitor 11 speakers and the combination is awe-inspiring.

    Bruno,

    Check out the parallel thread "Marantz Receivers" for some good recommendations on the 8200.

    There is no way to determine what you would like without you actually hearing both. Marantz fans will recommend Marantz, and Denon fans will recommend Denon. There are no surprises here. A few posts later, someone is bound to stray off-topic and recommend separates. I have auditioned the Marantz and the Denon. My choice was the Denon..you ears may differ.
