Marantz AV7703 vs AV8802A
I am considering either the 7703 or 8802A to replace my aging Yamaha RXA2040. I have read numerous threads on both these units and I am still undecided. Has anyone recently demo'd both of these units and can honestly advise if the 8802A is worth the extra 1K.
this would be used mainly for movies and although I have not installed ceiling speakers for atmos I will once I purchase a new pre-pro.
speakers are the Klispch THX Ultra II system. Amps are Sunfire 525x5, Parasound 200x2 and Emotiva 200x5 and a few m2200's, subs SVSx2. dedicated treated room.
I can find the 8802A refurbed from accesories 4 less and others for 2800.00 the 7703 for 1700.00
I typically dont post questions like this, but I am looking for assistance from those who have heard both and can advise what I am gaining or losing with the 8802A vs the 7703 (besides the Audessy app)
