Denon is superior as they have histiry making AVR & completed 100yrs.
So age is something to do with quality????
So OPPO is trash right?????As it is founded in 2004!!!!
Why the hell it so well regarded????
Also by this logic I know who is the best director of India?>
He is Dev Ananad ( B.1923) ....I've failed to understand why his movies are failing for last 2 decades? Why such gems like Mr Prime Minister,Love at Times Square,Censor,Gangster,Sau Crore , Sachhe Ka Bolbala remained unappreciated???
Nothing against Denon ,it is Fantastic brand but Pioneer also have impressive resume' -
Pioneer played a role in the development of interactive cable TV, the Laser Disc player, the first automotive Compact Disc player, the first detachable face car stereo, Supertuner technology, DVD and DVD recording, plasma display, and Organic LED display (OLED). The company works with optical disc and display technology and software products and is also a manufacturer.

Again remember " History is nothing to do with a great product."
Again if 100 year history is sure shot way of great products then how one can explain GM going bankrupt on their 101 st year of operation?? Or why they were not able to make fuel efficient cars after seeing the market trend...
