denon 4308 is definitely better - read online reviews. who would buy an onkyo n876 in comparison
yaaaa i know its more refine
but test lab reports on various sights shows these results
denon 4308 5 channel power 121 watts x 5
onkyo 876 """"" 166 watts x5
denon 4308 7 channel is 111 x 7
onkyo 876 """"""""""""""""" 123 x7
so i guess onkyo 876 is more powerful
why don't you go for professional amplifiers if you like the power output rating so much? you will get awesome figures like 1200W X 2 channels or so. buy 3 such amps and use your onkyo as pre amp. you will never feel low on power and you will never feel like indulging in such comparisons where the differences is just 30-40 watts.
BTW, i hope that you never use full power of your onkyo. that can permanently damage the ears and take away all the joy of listening prematurely. as such we lose high frequencies gradually after age of say 35 years. at home anyone rarely requires more than 50 watts. any figure above 70 is probably meaning less in home environment(provided that the amp provides ample headroom above it.)
