Any word on which video chip they're using in these models?

I would be willing to bet they have dropped ABT like their Denon cousins in favor of analog devices' chip.

Why do you think they would do that? Are the ABT inferior? Are the others cheaper?

Any word on ship date?

I think D&M is showing differentiation in pushing Audyssey and sound quality over video scaling and other peripheral features. Candidly, I agree with their strategy provided the largely untested analog devices chips don't molest hdmi video.

They should be out in late June.

I would appreciate any advise. I currently have a SR18EX and am looking to upgrade in favor of SR6006.
1. Would you expect similar sound quality?
2. It appears the multiroom doesn't support video, only audio. The SR18ex supports both, obviously not HDMI. Is that correct?

TIA, Mark

So it's official. The 5006 doesn't have 7.1 preamp outputs. Only 2.1

The 5006 has a 650W power consumption spec and the receiver weighs close to 26lbs so must have a decent amp section. I wonder if these will have a nicer GUI. Not sure I like the new look...

I'm interested to know why. I've got an SR8001 and am pretty interested in the 6006. Can't think of anything I'd be giving up, but would be gaining HDMI passthrough on standby (a big deal for my setup).

thanks,

I don't think it's available yet. There's not even a manual on the website.

I just don't see what the extra $400 is for to upgrade to the 6006. Am I missing something? The 5006 is 25.6 lbs and the 6006 is 26.0 lbs. Both have 650 watt power consumption. Both use Audyssey MultiEQ XT. The only additions I see on the 6006 are 1 extra HDMI out and 1 in. Preamp outputs for all channels. I'm guessing HD radio but I don't see it listed. That's about it. Doesn't seem like much for the extra 400. That being said the 5006 is very interesting to me and I can't wait for the owner's manual to come out to get more info.

The 6006 also has a phono stage, which is nice for me. Also an extra composite in, two extra composite outs, audio outs for zones 2 & 3, AUX2 audio in, DC trigger outputs.

I just wish these units had an optical output...

Seeing the 6006, can anyone talk me into justifying a 7005? I was planning on getting the 7005 to run my 2 channel rig for now, and as I build up into a 5:1 rig, ultimately using it a pre/pro for at least the mains with some better amplification.

But it appears that with the 6006 coming in with essentially the same feature set, a largely negligible power difference, and perhaps a bit cleaner output (98 vs 96 dB S/N), it there really any point in bumping up to the 7005? The current feedback preamp?

Perhaps a tipping point question: with a 7005, when running it as a pre/pro, is it possible to defeat the internal amps?

Cheers!

I am in the same boat as waygorked. I have been looking at the 7005 for over a month. Now with the 6006 implimenting all the networking features that previously sold me on stepping up, I am trying to determine why the 6006 wouldn't serve me as good. If anyone has a good comparitive analysis, please share.

sure, don't hook up speakers to them...

however, in the context of how i think you are asking the question, no, you cannot turn them "off"...

sorry...

whether or not you can turn the amps off would fall WAY down on the list of "things that don't matter" for me...

If I understand correctly, the big sound quality difference between using a SR 7005 and an AV7005 as a pre/pro, if there is indeed one at all, will be from the extra interference and strain on the power supply, no?

And assuming this effect is negligible, will there be any relevant difference between one or the other with both used as a pre/pro? I haven't looked into the AV7500 deeply enough to see if there is any difference in specs or reviews, and the functionality looks the same.

BTW Chris, I do appreciate your feedback. You are much farther into this process than I, and I am happy to learn from your experiences.

Even I am with the same dilemma. I thought of buying a sr7005, but after seeing the similar specs and looks of the sr7005 and sr6006, I too am wondering is it worth buying the 7005 or to go for the 6006.
Will there be any difference in performance, features and the sound quality between these two. people with knowledge about these receivers please help.
