Please provide feedback regarding the better receiver -- Marantz vs. Yamaha RX-v2400.
Can't say which is better, both are very good, and each appeal to a slightly different taste. In terms of amplification, both have very good output. Yamaha has more features, but I'm not a feature kind of person. I personally prefer the sound of Marantz for music. I have heard the 2400 with similar speakers to mine (smaller, but same drivers), and I felt it sounded very good. I am running a Marantz 8300.
I've got the 2400 and like it a lot. However, I have not heard the 8300.
I have a Marantz 7200. The NAD 763 is the only thing I've heard that has made me question my choice. *** I haven't heard that Yamaha***
What kind of speakers will you drive with this receiver? I have Klipsch speakers, which IMHO have a very balanced and 'active' sound when driven by my Marantz SR7200. I demo'd a Yamaha RX-2200 a while ago and they made the Klipschs sound bright. The Yamaha did not bring out the best qualities of my speakers.
