My SR7005 just blew up again for the 3rd time, this time out of warranty. The HDMI communication with my screen is dead, and I'm over it at this point. Time for a new rig.
I want 7:2, Airplay, and big, clean power. I run a biamped set of Aperion Verus Grands, which sound great but are hardly the most efficient speakers, in a really big room. I regularly found myself running the Marantz at -15dB, and at that level it is far from clean.
I'm really disappointed in the quality of my Marantz. I want its replacement to be built like a tank.
