    I've been saying them like this (where capital letters indicate the emphasis):

    DEN-awn (pronounced just like the words den and on)

    muh-RANTZ

    Are these accurate? My friend and I have a bet about this. I don't get a chance to visit the specialty B&M's much, so I don't know that I've ever really heard anybody "in the know" pronounce either of these brands correctly. If anyone has any clarification so I can avoid embarrassing myself, I'd appreciate it. :b Thanks!

    Denon is exactly like you said. I'm going into my DEN and turning the lights ON. DEN-ON.

    To my knowledge, Marantz is exactly the way you described it as well. Muh-rantz.

    If you call Denon in New Jersey, they will answer pronouncing it De-NON (accent on the second syllable).
