My Marantz just failed and I need to replace. Thanks for the feedback.
None of those fit the criteria for this thread, so you're better off asking elsewhere.

Excuse me.
Could the criteria police explain why the TX-NR929 doesn't belong in the discussion? Is it the lack of a toroidal (sic) transformer or no Audyssey Sub HD with the XT32? Otherwise it appears to be an HT product to me. But maybe you were thinking of powering your $150K Magicos.

Well I'll admit to reading the first page of this long thread too quickly. But that is a lot of pages for a narrow field. When I think of all digital I think of something like the NuForce piece. I'm still not sure if you're excluding anything with any analog or if you're including any HT receiver with a class D amp section. My Integra is dying and I'm looking for a replacement. I'll take your advice and look elsewhere.

That receiver uses a class AB amp.

I'm not trying to be rude, I just honestly think you'll get better help elsewhere in the forum.

I think most would agree that the intent of this thread is Class-D amps and the "digital receiver" phrase is really a misnomer. Perhaps receiver with switching amplifier would have been a more accurate term. A few receivers with switching power supplies but traditional class AB amps have been mentioned here as well.

If that is the case, I really think the original post should be updated to reflect that. When I clicked on this thread, I assumed it was supposed to be a compiled list of all digital HT AVR's. I was going to complain about how outdated the list was. The original post should do a better job of reflecting the intent of this thread.

Yeah, I agree the title of this thread should have been Class-D receivers.. But it is a pretty old thread so doubt it will get changed. And, sadly, there are hardly any left anyway.

Updated the title. I no longer have time to research receivers, so if you have any Class-D to add, let me know.

Interesting quirk of your update to the thread title - the original post now shows updated 10/2/13, making it seem like that is a current list.

Pioneer SC-XX and SC-XXXX models are all class-D. I would say these are the most commonly used class-D receivers on this forum.
