Hi everyone, i am new here and green. So here goes and please forgive me if i sound like a nut....

I am setting up my HT system and am stuck. I just don't know what to buy next. So far i have a Sony Bravia that is dialed perfectly for picture, next i recently purchased a pair of Klipsch RF-7ii, and i have a strong down firing powered Boston Aucustic sub (300watts). I plan on buy the Klipsch RF-64 but need to save up a little more. I am stuck because i do not know what receiver type to buy next???

Part of me was thinking of the Marantz 5007, or maybe an integrated amp, but i have no clue. I do know that i am not interested in creating a 5.1 sound system. I watch and listen to music 50/50, my living room is large at 20x20'. I want something that has balls to push my speakers and give me great sound. My sub is easy to use and makes great base just need a receiver of some sort. Price range $1200.00 maxx.

Other components that will meed to be able to attach to this receiver:
1- original nintend from 1990
2-cable box
3-camcorder HD
4-iphone/ipod
5-xbox 360
6-blue ray

Thank you everyone. smile.gif

The 5007 should be able to meet all your requirements. smile.gif

With the Klipsch RF-7ii rated at 101 dB sensitivity even the power of the Marantz 5007 will be overkill. Please take into account that amplifier power and speaker sensitivity go hand-in-hand. Thus with a speaker having 101 dB sensitivity you won't need anything external for sure. smile.gif

On the otherhand you may have some difficulties with such super high sensitivity speakers in your room when it come to Audyssey setting up speakers trims coz they are likely to max. out on the negative end at -12 dB. But that's another story! smile.gif

You can connect 2 subs to any AVR (including the 5007) by simply adding a RCA "Y" splitter cable ....

Yes, although as is the case with any "passive" bi-amp feature on AVRs (to include the 5007), it is not likely to provide any improvement in either additional power or better audio fidelity (although if you have the extra speaker wire no harm in trying as well as the placebo effect being in play). Better solutions ...... if you want more power ... purchase an external amp (eg. Emotiva XPA-2, XPA-3, or XPA-5). If you want better audio fidelity, upgrade to the new 7008 or Denon X4000, both of which offer the more advanced version of Audyssey MultEQ XT32 + Sub EQ HT which has 32x more speaker resolution filters than does MultEQ XT on the 5007.

Now being new to all of this...how do you think mp3 music will sound with the 5007/8? Willi need a dac? I'm looking for improved "fidelity"; i'm tired of stereos which sound like they were built in a trash can.
