    I would generally expect the low end of most brands to sound worse then the top end, don’t ya think? (With exceptions for Kraco, Emerson, Yorx etc. [​IMG] )

    I don't mean to be spiteful, but what's the purpose of this thread? I'm sure you don't mean to insult people who have these brands, but I don't see anything good coming out of it. If this thread must exist, it seems more suited for the Polls section.

    OK... I have to take a stand for Kenwood... I know their lower models are not all they could be but I have watched two of my friends sell their Denon 4802's once they heard my Kenwood 5900.

    I will also stand up for Kenwood. VR-507 which I have is a GREAT receiver. I demo'd Denon 1602, Onkyo 494/595 and some Yammies with a variety of speakers and didn't hear any significant differences. For the price and features the Kenwood was hard to beat.
    I have been reading similar things about the new Pioneer 811s.
