Relpacing the Marantz SR-8002

Well I bought it new in 2007/2008 and it finally went out on me. It started making a constant clicking noise when turning on and the more it turned on the more it had to cycle the clicking until it finally didn't power anymore. Sounded like a relay clicking. I've tried researching what the problem could be but so far the only probable solution is that the 5V power voltage regulator might of went bad. Not sure if that's it plus I'd rather put the money towards a new receiver instead of sending it in to get worked on and waiting a long turn around. I also want one that's 3D capable so I can get rid of the monoprice matrix switch I have and be able to HDMI straight to the receiver.

My audio set up has been:
Polk RTi12 fronts
Polk CSi5 Center
Polk FXi3 surrounds (2 side, 1 rear)
MFW-15 sub
and 4 buttkicker LFE's with the BKA1000 amp

What new AVR would you suggest to push these power hungry Polk speakers? I'm interested in the Marantz 7008/7009 but would a lesser AVR with a separate AMP work better? I'm also not brand loyal but the Marantz is the only nice receiver I've owned so far. I loved the sound it produced but I'm open to other brands as well.

Also does anyone know of any other sites with prices similar to accessories4less.com?

Thanks!

You would be better served going no lower than the SR7008/SR7009 as these are the lowest models with the most advanced speaker/sub correction software version of Audyssey (ie. MultEQ XT32). A "refurb" from AC4L provides a 1 year warranty, while a "new" SR7008/SR7009 would come with a 3 year warranty + a free Denon HEOS Link (MSRP $349). If you want more specific information or pricing on these models, please contact us; if we don’t have the product in stock, we can usually get it very quickly.

Sorry I haven't been on here in a while and didn't know you sold Marantz/Denon but still not sure what to get. I forgot I actually bought a new Sony HW30 projector from here years ago for a great price.. lol

If you're interested in the possibility of upgrading to an Atmos (overhead) speaker configuration then the SR7009 would be more appropriate than the SR7008.

A couple of notes:

AV Science no longer owns the AVS forum, they're just one of its major supporters.

The Polks you have really aren't particularly power hungry. With a 90dB sensitivity, they're actually relatively efficient.

I thought the towers needed some power? That's what I've been reading anyway.. They're 8ohm 50-500 watts

They can hit reference volume level with only 4W of power.

The power ratings of speakers are for the maximum amount of power that your amps can be allowed to deliver to them, not how much they need. In other words, if you exceed those ratings, the speakers will be damaged. Please read the speakers' owner's manuals for details.

Thanks yes I know. Don't know why I posted the specs but maybe I should've linked some conversations instead about those speakers being "thirsty" and not very efficient as some of the others like klipsch, etc..
