That is incorrect. Both Denon and Marantz are owned by D&M Holdings
While both may hold similar designs and sound, Marantz is almost universally regarded as the higher end product line. It is true that Denon has several more models of HT receivers and some very nice and expensive ones at that, but Marantz more more geared towards stereo and hi-fi. (take a look through the Marantz Reference series, there's some great sounding gear there!)
