True. $400 is $400 though. What that means to me is maybe upgrading my center speaker, or putting that extra cash towards a getting bigger better TV. That extra $400 for the 7007 is almost twice the price of the x2100. I'm just wondering if it's going to [I]sound[I] twice as good. If so, it's worth it to me. If not, I'd rather put that money into something else.
I don't care about the wifi since my router will be right next to my unit I can just plug an ethernet cable into it. And I'll be using Airplay so bluetooth doesn't matter to me either (though Marantz does offer the RX101 bluetooth adapter for $99 if I ever did want it down the road). Sound is what's most important to me. I'm just wondering if it's almost twice the quality in sound...
