Been thinking alot lately in replacing my sr8002 in my main room.Been looking into the sr5007,6007,7007 as well as the sr7005.Was wondering if anyone has gone from the sr8002 to one of the newer Marantz and what are your impressions. I'm on the fence due to $$ and dont know if it would be worth it considering .Obviously if any of these wouldnt be considered an upgrade i wont bother.The sr8002 has served me well.Opinions please.thx

Alt of those models listed feature the more advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT so you would likely notice some improvement in audio fidelity; however, a much more noticeable improvement would be achieved using the most advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32, although the only Marantz model to feature it is the new AV8801 to be released next month. Denon features it on their 4311CI (on clearance) as well as its successor, the 4520CI just recently released. There are dedicated owner's threads for all three of these models if you want to ask more specific questions.

That's your choice, although note that upgrading to the Denon 4311CI for less than what you'd pay for the 7007 would provide for a much more noticable upgrade in audio fidelity .... again, your choice though. We don't cover the Marantz models as well as the Denon models, so you'll have to do your own research on which Marantz model provides the features you want, otherwise, you can compare the Denon models in post #2 of each of the XX12 and XX13 Owner's threads linked in my sig.
