Any advice would be appreciated. Im about to purchase a new HT speaker system consisting of rf-7 ii, rs 62, rc64 and two svs 12 plus subs. Both receivers are roughly the same price but I am torn between the Denon model which states 140 watts per c vs the Marantz 125 watts. Anyone own either of them and have any advice. I have been told that the rf - 7 speakers need more power than the rf 82s I had been looking at. Thanks

4311CI hands down choice as it is 9.2 and uses the far more advanced version of Audyssey MultEQ XT32 vs. only XT on the 7007. A few of the current 4311CI/A100 owner's posting in the Owner's thread came from the older AV7005 and indicate a marked improvement.

^^^ this...

wattage is amoungst the last specs you should be looking at... however, the 4311 will handle those speakers with no issues...

I think Marantz is just plain STUPID for not offering a new pre/pro without XT32.

Just how many of these do they think they'll sell to people who haven't already bought an AV7005?

AV7007 or AV7701 ... who knows ...

If it's not worth waiting until the last minute to do, then it's not worth doing.

"...not...without XT32." Au contraire. If you seek Marantz and Audyssey MultEQ XT32, your double negative negates your point. Proofread before you post.
