From my original list of 8+ receivers i have narrowed it down to this 3 exceptional units: Onkyo 575, Denon 3300 & Marantz SR7000. Which one would you vote for?

Also, is there a way to install 2 different sets of subwoofer? 1 for my video requirement and another for Heavy Disco music. (I intend to power both with a separate power amplifier)

spend the few extra bucks and get a DENON 4800, with 7.1 and 120 watts

Few extra bucks!

Hardly! The Onkyo 575 and the Denon 4800 are light years apart in price...

Onkyo 575 ~$420
Denon 3300 ~$750
Denon 4800 ~$1500

I was looking around and got to audition the Yamaha RXV2095 . It was also good and it got me thinking if it is a better than the others. And to think that it's price is double that of the Onkyo's. Hmmmm.

Estimate price here in the Philippines:
(Forget online purchases)

Denon AVR3300 $1000
Yamaha RXV2095 $1100
Marantz - no unit found till now
Onkyo 525 - $500

Is the price difference really justifiable or could the Onkyo 575 be good enough to satisfy what i needed and save me the extra bucks? I could then invest the money saved on other equipment such as speakers. Id like to know what you think is the major difference between the Onkyo and the Denon/Yamaha/Marantz that makes the latter twice the price. I am also looking at the Pioneer 525 DVD player which runs at around $400. Anyone would like to recommend a better player with the same price tag? (im in the Phil which makes me unable to purchase equipment online). Thanks.

I don't know about the Marantz, but I know that the Denon 3300 and the Onkyo 575 are not comparable receivers. The Denon is a far superior receiver, though it costs more too. I would personally stay away from Yamaha. Yamy just doesn't quite match up, quality-wise, with Denon or Onkyo. Again, I don't know about Marantz...

I have just bought the Marantz SR7000 a few months ago, so I was in the same position as you. I didn't really look at the Onkyo, but did compare the Yamaha 995, Denon 3300, and the Marantz.

Yamaha
Pros: Has a lot of DSP modes
Cons: Seems a little dated and the remote was n't very nice to use. Plus I probably wouldn't use the DSP modes more then once.

Denon
Pros: 5-Channel Stereo mode, decent sound.
Cons: Was the most expensive, and the remote sucks.

Marantz
Pros: Same as the Denon, plus I thought it sounded better for music then the Denon. I liked the remote for once.
Cons: Not as good as my Adcom seperates, but was too cheap to get a Outlaw 750 and a new Pre-amp/Processor.

I've heard that the Pioneer 525 is supposed to be a very nice DVD player. It can play CD-R with no problems. I have the Toshiba 3109, and I have had no problems with it.

Have fun choosing which reciever to buy. Thats one of the fun parts of this expensive hobby.
