My A1HD vs 7702
I have an un answered thread with the same info, so forgive me if I repost here.
have the Denon AVP-A1HD, love the unit. Don't have the 3D upgrade (don't need 3D but would like better Audessey capability)
Over the last year, I've been wishing it was updated to the latest available features, but really didn't see the need to replace a working unit. Not to mention nothing seems close to the A1.
Jump forward to today.... the Denon has a problem. center channel - we get little to no volume. So I do have to send it in for repairs.
I bought the Marantz 7702 hoping it would give me great features and as good sound.
Basically theres no comparison on build quality, and Im not sure the sound is that good. The setup gave great balance of my 5.1 setup, but since I can't go back and forth, I'm thinking I should get the A1 repaired and stick with it. It just seemed to have a more natural sound.
Just wondering what people think....should I take this opportunity to replace the AVP? Or is the quality of the AVP so great I won't be able to replace it without investment.
thanks for the thoughts
