What makes them “audiophile grade? This was really not explained by the article and it seems from the stated specs that there’s really nothing new on the audio end from prior Denon/marantz offerings.

Jerry Del Colliano

Sorry – that is my doing…

I have been playing with Denon receivers as an affordable stereo preamp (with room correction, HDMI and other stuff that audiophile companies don’t often deliver) at a very fair price.

I was a little ahead of myself with that title. I hope this explanation and future articles help explain where I am going with this.



Thanks, Jerry for the response


The minimal requirement for AVR to be audiophile-grade needs to have pre outs for channels, is that a too much expectation?

Jerry Del Colliano

That’s a good start for future upgrades. I haven’t seen one without pre-outs in a while.

Room correction, HDMI and a good DAC help too.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
