Any more updates on the AV8801? I'm eager to get on... Believe it or not, but I already have my 9.2 setup ready; just need to replace my AV7005 smile.gif

FYI, all Marantz manuals are available for download. Before purchasing my SR5007, I downloaded the PDF manual. Online or CD, I still prefer a hard copy.

I find it easier / faster to search for details when in a PDF vs. a printed index.

+1

And it's a lot easier to print a pdf than to scan and convert to text a hard copy.

Plus, if you load the PDF into an iPad (or other tablet, I imagine), it's handy, searchable and portable.

I'm old school, I grew up with pencils/paper and was taught to use a physical index; flip to page number......

And I don't own anything more complicated then a Windows 7/64 desktop computer interface. Credit being to my old man dinosaur status, I know how to swap out boards, HDD's, download and successfully install.........automatically installed drivers.

There's no more info than I gave. The pics were also not of the AV8801 but from the 7701. Although I bet it looks 100% the same upfront.

Funny that Marantz isn't even mentioning the AV8801 @ Cedia. You should think the thing would be near complete several months after they talked about it in Valencia since it is anounced for the year end. I guess it's a commercial decision to put the 7701 in the market as the top pre-pro for the folks who don't actually spend a lot of time on AV-websites... And in three months they can score again.

I want Auro-3D 13.3 Surround!

Haven't heard yet, but hoping it also has balanced inputs, as neither the 7005 or the 7701 did where my 8003 does.

It'd better have a XLR stereo input at that price. Would be real bummer if one could not connect something like the Oppo BDP-95 (or better: BDP-105) in the optimal way.

That's a disappointing thought. Right now the new AV8801 pre-pro is a bit beyond my reach.

Remember that Denon and Marantz equipment use many of the same circuit boards. In other words, if you want a D&M receiver with XT32, you should consider the Denon AVR 4520 or the discontinued 4311. The 4520 is about 2/3 the cost of the 8811.
