I am a newbie and wanted to get some opinions on receivers. I have 2 in mind for my 2 channel set up:
Harmon Kardon HK 3480- 120 watts x2
Marantz SR4021- 80 watts x2(20hz to 20khz)
I can get the HK for about $260 and the Marantz list for $440 on line. I am pretty set on buying the Marantz CC4001 cd changer. I'm not too sure on the speakers yet. I listened to the Paradigm Monitor 11's and I liked them and they are in my budget. Question is do you think the Marantz receiver is worth the extra money compared to the HK? Thanks in advance!
