New to this thread-- I am in process of modernizing my living room audio equipment. Currently have a Nakamichi TA-2A and Mission Cyrus 781 speakers. Still works great and sounds pretty good --- but --- I am ready to enter the 21st cent. and bring in 5.1 surround system and pair with a new led tv. Yes I still have an old crt tv. I am slowly building my new system. In place now are the following: Surround speakers: Martin Logan Helos 12, Right and Left speakers : Martin Logan motion 15. Center speaker: Martin Logan Motion 6. Sub speaker: Martin Logan Dynamo 300. I am about to purchase a Marantz sr5008 to finally replace the Nakamichi. The Nak has been running for 25 years without any problems. Hopefully Marantz will take me another 25 years. One of the things I like about the Marantz sr5008 is that is has Arc on the back and pass-through. I want to purchase a new LED tv but I have read that not all tvs play well with av receivers that have arc and pass through. Does anybody have advice on a good tv? I am looking now at the Samsung UN46F7500 but I am becoming more and more concerned that that tv(brand) may not be a good fit with trying to utilize the arc feature on the Marantz sr5008. Will a Samsung work? Will I be able to pull full 5.1 from the tv or will it only be 2.0. I have seen a mix bag of info on using the arc feature on this unit.
Is it a big diffrence between sr5008 and sr6008? Im interested to buy one of them, for 2.0 or 2.1 sound to start with. Both got HDAM which is good but do both have 12.000uf capacitors or do the 5008 only got 10.000uf? Thanks for replys.
