The article also included a photo image of the SR7009 AVR; stunning in silver! Wondering if other Marantz products (for U.S. release) will also be in silver as well.

What a beauty! These colors silver and gold have been available in Europe for a long time The US only likes black boxes

My humble Cinema

During the 1970s silver was VERY prevalent and available in the U.S. marketplace. Black boxes were rare. My very first stereo purchase (circa 1973) included a Marantz 1060 integrated amplifier (in silver) which I still own (and occasionally still play).

Nice to see they'll include ATMOS on the SR 7009

silver was the standard back-in-the-day. That's because the front face-plate was genuine metal with silk-screened graphics.

The new-generation gear is either coated aluminum and/or plastic. Also finished aluminum face-plate (ie. Parasound Halo for example).

Compared to SR7008, is there real difference how 7009 drives say five 4-ohm speakers?

Shouldn't be, no, as the 2014 models are simply using a "current limiter" setting. Just as with the SR7008, if you want to drive 5 4-ohm speakers to reference volume levels, you're likely going to have to add an external 250W+ amp.

I Would love to see Marantz add some 250W+ multichannel amplifiers to their product lineup.

Me too, but we will have many who have bench-marked what they want to pay according to Emotiva prices, and will claim that the Marantz prices are exorbitant, and that their power amps will sound better
The smart money for D & M is in the processors and AV amps..

According to Marantz support engineers, NR1605 does stream multichannel DSD/FLAC with no downmixing to stereo as long as the receiver is not instructed to do otherwise (e.g. forced stereo). Sounds like it's time to replace my 1602 with 1605.

Has anyone seen any actual reviews of the NR1605 yet?

Amazon has had them in stock at least a few days now, and Crutchfield had them, but sold out already. So people have them - I'd imagine reviewers should be getting them by now too.

Is it normal on a 1604/1605 for the volume to be around 50-55 for normal listening when matched with a set of Yamaha surround speakers rated at 6 ohms? I'm not used to that. Not sure why 0-30 should be "mute". Seems like not a lot of room to work with volume wise. I have not tested it's (NR1605) upper volume limits yet though. It may be more than I need.

With modern AVRs, yes. Average listening volume will be 50-60 (TV) and 60-70 (movies/music).

Modern home-theater audio equipment use a logarithmic volume scale, measured in dB. The old-style linear volume controls which indicate a fraction of the equipment's maximum power are no longer common.

After you've run the Audyssey calibration, a volume setting of 80 (or 0 if you set the receiver to use relative values) produces the same reference sound level at your primary listening position as you would hear in a calibrated commercial movie theater. In a home environment, most people listen to movies at levels about 10-20dB below reference (i.e. about 60-70) , and to music about 20-30 dB below reference (i.e. 50-60). While there is a standard for the sound levels used in movies, music recordings do not have an equivalent.

Got one a couple of days ago - it's going back to Magnolia. I don't see a reason to upgrade from NR1602. Yes, the GUI looks nicer, the unit it a bit snappier when UI is involved, WiFi is cool (although I don't need it - my house is wired), but the support for multichannel flac/dsd is a joke - it plays it as if the stream only had front left/right and ignores other channels. It doesn't even downmix.

Is it safe to assume that the US version of the SR7009 would have HD Radio?

As the Denon sister model X4100W will not, then no, it is not safe to assume the SR7009 will have it.

The SR7009 is between the X4100W and the X5200W as the X5200W is mfr'd in Japan while the SR7009 is not.

JD,

There is a PDF comparing features which claims that both the AVR-X5200W and 7200 have HD Radio. sdurani posted a clip from it at
http://www.avsforum.com/forum/90-rec...l#post26061346

If you're going by the content of the European manual for the 5200, remember that they have a rather different radio standard, and never have had the version of "Hybrid Digital" radio transmission that we have in the U.S.

How important is upscaling to 60fps: 5009 vs 6009?

Reviewing the specs of the 5009 vs the 6009 I'm trying to figure out how important this particular feature of the 6009 is. In the specs available so far, it appears the 6009 can upscale to 4K at 60fps whereas the 5009 can't.

I can picture myself upgrading to a 4K TV in the next couple of years and I'll probably have several "legacy" components I'll be dragging along like an XBOX 360, a DVR, etc.... I'm thinking that if I add a component that is 4K capable I can plug it directly into the TV (and also not worry about missing HDCP 2.2 for a while) and route audio back to the receiver. But in the case of a game console or other devices I'd like to continue to use the switching capability of the receiver.

Curious as to what the community's thoughts are.

As always, just depends on which does a better job of upscaling ... the source device, the AVR, or the TV. In past years, the AVR has not likely not been the winner for most owners.
