I am setting up my first HT. Running Paradigm Monitor 9's with matching center and sub. I was looking a good AVR to go with for $800 or less. I happened upon a deal at the local BB on a new Marantz SR 7005 for $699. I know this unit was built in late 2010. I have a couple of weeks to return it, if need be. I am concerned about buying what is essentially 4yr old technology. The unit comes with a full warranty. I was looking at the Onkyo NR818, the Pioneer SC-61 and the Denon 3113ci. All see to be reviewed pretty well. Any thoughts on what would be the best course of action? I listen to music about 30% of the time, but also want something that makes TV (Panasonic VT50 plasma) and movies enjoyable.

If the 7005 provides the features you need, then it would still be a very viable solution for you and features the same version of Audyssey MultEQ XT as does the newer 3313CI. However, you may also want to review the new Denon X2000 as well at a lower price point with the same MultEQ XT.

Review post #2 in the link below for more info on the new Denon models ...

The 7005 is a really good deal for $699. It has all the features of current receivers with the exception of 4K passthrough. Even has a free upgrade to add Airplay if it isn't already there. Its got networking, Pandora streaming, dual HDMI outputs, Audyssey DSX (wide speakers)etc.

Plus you get a 3 year warranty.

Good pickup.
