Comments: The I've worked with Sony and Denon professional level MDs. I prefer the Denons because of sound quality, reliability and solid construction. But, for editing the Sonys win with their keypad remote, Denon has no such thing and has no plans for one. I've had no failures with either brand's professional level MD gear, but I prefer running shows from the Denons. -Sten (stens@CONCENTRIC.NET)
