I just looked on Amazon for the AV7005. I went through the checkout process and it said estimated ship date would be Oct 20th-22nd. I'm not sure if that is true or not though.

Are you referring to online retailers? To my knowledge, D&M doesn't permit its authorized online retailers to sell below MSRP unless the item is on soon-to-be-discontinued clearance.

My local dealer, however, can get anything from Denon/Marantz at a discount. I think that's the whole idea.

yeah, just do a "find local dealer" search on their website, then start calling on that list til you find someone that seems human and understands the economy we are in. that's what i did anyways and i think i got a decent deal.

Right on, that's great advice. I usually buy online, so I never thought about the local dealer. I much rather support the local business, but I always thought you could find better prices online.

Just got this email.

The AV7005 should be available within the next few weeks. Probably more towards the beginning of November.

^^^^

It was not made by Onkyo was number one reason. I have the Integra 9.8 now which is feature rich but sonically challenged IMHO.

The Marantz has the feature I want and is very attractively priced so I thought I would give it a shot.

A problem with the current Marantz is that when it decodes high resolution audio, it would turn off room correction. My understanding is that it didn't have enough system resources to do both.

Has anything been said about whether or not this would happen with the new model?

The av7005 manual says that it does.

And folks in the sr7005 thread have explicitly tested and verified that it does, so I feel reasonably safe in assuming that the av7005 will.

You're question really made me think about all the reasons I'd like the AV7005. I have 2 yr old Pioneer Elite receiver as my pre/pro which doesn't have a lot of the features of the AV7005. Sound is the single most important thing to me so as long as the AV7005 sounds at least as good my Pioneer VSX-92TXH with MCACC EQ then I'm sold:

Other than SQ these are the reasons I'm interested in the AV7005.

1). Audyssey MultEQ XT.

2). GUI overlay with screen volume (my 2yr old Pioneer Elite doesn't do GUI overlay).

3). Balanced XLR pre-outs (for my main amp).

4). 11.2 analog pre-outs (for my side and center back amps that don't have balanced ins).

5). PLIIz: Option to go 11.2 and switch from front height to center backs on the fly without disconnecting and reconnecting speakers. Though I would have preferred to be able to use both the front heights and center backs at the same time.

6). Able to overlay PLIIx (7.1) processing with DTS-HD 5.1 codecs. For some reason (probably licensing) Pioneer receivers don't allow this, so if I want to overlay 7.1 with a 5.1 DTS-HD codec I have to use THX processing which doesn't sound as good as PLIIx (IMO). Pioneer does allow you to overlay PLIIx processing with TrueHD 5.1 though.

7). Dynamic volume

8). Dymanix EQ

9) Built-in internet radio.

10) USB connection in the front for iPod (my Pio has the iPod connection on the back).

11). User upgradable firmware (Pioneer must be brought into service center for firmware upgrades).

12). Independent input settings for input mode, surround mode, HDMI
output mode, MultEQ XT, Dynamic EQ, Dynamic Volume, audio delay etc... by input, so each input can have it's own settings. With my Pioneer settings are global across all inputs.

Like rick240 said, the AV7005 can overlay Audyssey with bitstreamed TrueHD and DTS-HD . As long as it's not more than 96 kHz you can overlay Audyssey with HD audio sources. Since there are only three or four Blu-ray titles over 96 kHz, this shouldn't be a problem for most people.

And I was talking about the AV7005, which is, at heart, a Denon. If there ever was a characteristic "Marantz sound," that is now gone at this level of AV component. D&M Holdings has seen to that.

I am probably going to order one for myself. To be honest, not sure if I wasnt the preamp or the receiver. Either way, should work great in my system. Let me know if anyone has any questions about them

Without hearing the AV7005 it is kind of hard to say it sounds just like a Denon. I would assume the AV7005 will have similar if not the same SQ as the SR7005. If you read posts 33, 35 and 37 on page 2 of the SR7005 thread you will see that a SR7005 owner prefers the SQ of the SR7005 over the Denon 4810 and the Emotiva UMC-1 (he owned both). So maybe the AV7005 is not just a Denon wrapped in a Marantz box.

But since the Denon 3311 and the Marantz sr7005 seem to be the same insides:

a) is the 3311 a wrapped Marantz

b) is the 7005 a wrapped Denon

Unfortunately (b) is more likely since the 3311 hit the streets sooner.

And maybe (c), they have a similar base but some component changes?

nobody knows 1st hand as it is STILL not out yet, but based off what others who own the sr7005 say, i'm sure they will sound different/better than the denons. but i still would not say that the sr and the av might sound the same. otherwise i would have already bought the sr7005. ever time i have called marantz tech support, (did i say every time?), they have told me that the av7005 should sound better than the sr so long as you have a good amp. i would say 10 out of 10 tech support guys have told me the same thing. the preamp is just made to be a preamp. period. here's to taking their word for it. already placed my order and i must say this is the 1st time i have ever ordered anything that wasn't already out and didn't have a pro review of some sort. fingers crossed!

btw, called again and lady said they should be fulfilling pre-orders end of this week! Da^(**it i hope so.

Rick,

That is the $60K question as I posted a similar question a few months back on whether the 3311 and the SR7005 were one in the same. There are differences with the SR7005 having a 7.1 analog input and that it is made in Japan (3311 in China).

I am leaning towards choice (c) as I would hope the SR/AV7005 has better internal components (DACs, analog stage etc.). I guess the only way to know is if someone pops the top of of both and is able to see differences in the internal components with different part numbers. But then again the 3311 and the SR7005 could be indentical which would make the 3311 the better buy over the SR7005.

I'm with you guys on that one...

Waiting to see wich one i'm buying between the 3 (3311, SR7005, AV7005).
I'm leaning towards the AV because, well, for starters it's mysterious ;-) and I don't need an amp right now. I'm going to use my Dynaudio BM6A amplified speakers for the time being. Hopefully they will like each other very much...

Plus it's my first Home Theater system, and I don't mind building it slowly piece by piece. I can get an amp and new speakers later on. My wallet thanks me...

I've been a reader for many years, I finally subscribed ;-)

^Welcome aboard Sphinks.

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there is no concept of "accounting for taste". We don't "pick" the level of bass any more than we get to pick the ending of a play. High fidelity is an unbiased, neutral, exact copy (or "reproduction") of the original source's tonal balance, timing, dynamics, etc..

Hi everyone, I'm in Vancouver, Canada and have placed an order for the AV7005 over the weekend. Dealer was told to be getting stock into Toronto, Canada Marantz warehouse on Oct 19/20. I should have mine in 2 weeks. Takes about 5 shipping days from Toronto to Vancouver.
