If you had subs, the Marantz because the EQ does the subs as well.

Don't think the Yamaha EQ does, but not 100% sure.

They are both virtually identical in specs; so something as simple as a friendlier remote or menu interface might make the decision for you.

Have a 10 inch Sub , cool I will check to see .... I think the Yamaha is a little easier to use a little friendlier ... it does real nice job with Apple play

Try them both and see which one you like better. That's why you bought two isn't it?

Correct, as the A850 is the lowest model that does Sub EQ, not to mention, the A750 only uses a single mic position with a single "global" speaker crossover that applies to all speakers.

I can vouch for the marantz!

Audyssey is a great start, but not always a great finish.

That said will it pump as well as the Yamaha?

Power difference between these models would be negligible.

On paper that looks like a 10% in rated power but in reality it's a difference of potential VOLUME coming out of your speakers of less than 1%.

To get a slightly noticeable 3 db difference in volume vs 90 watts would take about 180 watts.

I love both but I have to say that the Yamaha is far more non audiophile friendly... and the app is outstanding... I think the Aventage does everything a little better ..
