    I am replacing my old Onkyo (prologic) with a new receiver and I am looking at the Maranz 5300 and Yamaha rxv 540. Does anybody owns any of these two receivers and your impression?

    From what I know of the two brands, you should do fine with either. It really comes down to special features that one may have that the other doesn't. I know Yamaha is the king of DSPs. A friend of mine has the RX-V630 and loves it.
    Another of my friends just purchased the Marantz 5300. He has it powering B&W CDM speakers across the front without a problem. He's very happy, too.
