Thanks for posting this, and if you don't mind me piggybacking I'm in the same spot and looking at a possible upgrade.
I have an Outlaw 950 pre and I've been looking at the Marantz AV7005, now heavily discounted. I really like the sound of my 950, but would like to move up to TrueHD (if it matters) and have a more streamlined cable setup with HDMI support. My primary music listening is SACD/CD using analog out and the Outlaw bypass from a Sony DVP-9000ES. I would still keep that unit. As my family has grown the Outlaw has had to accept the audio from an X-box, PS3, and DirecTV HD.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
