I'm new to the home theater scene. I have a chance to buy a Marantz SR8400 7.1. It's in very good condition and is hardly used. My only concern is how old it is. It's about 7 years old and has no HDMI inputs - a little out dated...

On the other hand i've been looking at the Pioneer VSX 921k 7.1 and a Yamaha RX V571, each can be had for around the same price and they are brand new.

What do you guys think I should go with?

I'd go with the Yamaha. Good luck in whatever you choose!

Thanks for the input. I ended up buying a Harman AV3600.
