I feel like this item is not brought up enough. It’s stereo, Can act as both an amp (75wpc) and a preamp and it can act as a direct feed to your Television. Can work as a network streamer as well.
This is Denon’s equivalent. They’re literally the same item. Their online manuals are literally the same digital layout. their interfaces are the same. The only difference is amp power.
2002 - Marantz Japan and Denon merge into D&M Holdings
Could almost say Marantz is equal to Audi and Denon is Volkswagen.
Tiny differences and one being little more “premium” than other but kinda the same.
