Hello everyone,

I currently have an Onkyo TX-NR805 7.1 receiver. (135W X 7 channels)

My set up is as follows:

Center: Polk Audio CSi5
Front R/L: RTiA5
Surround R/L: Monitor 30iB
Surround back R/L: FXAi6
Subwoofer: Polk PSW505 Powered

I am looking to upgrade to a new receiver since I got a new HDTV and would like something with enough power for these speakers. Additionally, I would like 3D and 4K pass-through for if I ever upgrade to 4K in the future.

Any suggestions?

As the 805 uses Audyssey MultEQ XT, you'll likely want to upgrade to the more advanced XT32 which can be found on the Onkyo 929 (if you want to stick with Onkyo) as well as the Denon X4000. The Denon also features Audyssey Sub EQ HT (dual sub calibration) should you ever decide to add a 2nd sub to your setup, a feature not found on the 929.

What about the Marantz 5008?

However, I see on Marantz website that pretty much everything is made in China.

The 5008 uses the same version of Audyssey MultEQ XT as does the 805 and the A830 would use Yamaha's own brand of EQ (YPAO), although it cannot EQ the subwoofer, rather you would have to upgrade to the A2030 for that feature.

All the AVRs are made in China with the exception of the flagship >$1000 models for each of the brands. I wouldn't worry about that. The Marantz 5008 is a fine receiver with Audyssey XT, 7.1 pre-outs, etc. The Yamaha Aventage A830 has a similar complement of features. It also features the more advanced version of YPAO, YPAO R.S.C.

HT: CM9 S2 FR/FL, CMC2 S1, CM5 S1 surrounds, ASW610; Yamaha rx-a2030; Parasound Halo P5; Parasound Halo A23; Oppo BDP-93; ATV
2 Channel (computer setup): Ascend Acoustics Sierra-1 NrT FR/FL, ASW608; Parasound Zpre2; Parasound Zampv3; Parasound Zdac; Parasound Zphono; Rega RP1; Marantz CD5004

Actually most of Onkyo's stuff is made in either Malaysia or their higher end stuff is made in Japan still.
