replacing stolen gear...
Well as in my other thread I am looking to replace gear. Here I want to talk about my receiver/prepro.
Before the theft I was using a Marantz 6008 (haven't updated my sig...)
I liked it just fine and paired with my XPA-5 I enjoyed it.
But since I have bought the amp and will get another to replace the stolen one, I am thinking of going with a separate pre/pro. I like Marantz and the 7701 is high on my "gonna get" list, but before pulling the trigger I want to hear some other ideas that I may not be thinking of. I know that EMO is coming out with something pretty sweet but haven't seen it in real life yet. Looking to stay around the 2k price range though I do have SOME wiggle room.
On a long enough time line the survival rate for everyone drops to zero
