Yamaha sc-67 vs Marantz 5009
After lurking for a few years I finally joined. haha please go easy on me.
Im slowly getting around to buying stuff for what will be my home theater. I will eventually have a 60"LG Plasma with a motorized 106" screen in front of it. I dont have a projector picked out yet. I have 4 Martin Logan Motion 4 speakers that will eventually be my rear and surround. Also have a martin Logan sub (500) and center channel. I will likely be getting the Martin Logan SLM for my front speakers.
I am looking to spend about $1000 on a receiver. I had kind of decided on a Marantz sr5009 but today I was looking at a local Audio Video Unlimited and found a Pioneer SC-67 on sale for $999 from a MSRP of $2199.
Am i better off buying something a bit older (sc-67) or newer (5009). I should add that I dont need wifi so I might even buy the SC-5008 which I have seen locally for $749.
Any advice would be appreciated.
