Seems like Marantz is finally working on providing info regarding the lack of 7.1 LPCM support. I initially emailed Marantz with the owners circle website on 02.04.2007 and got a response from Kevin last week and again today. He is working on gathering the information, here is our email exchange:

Comments: Does the marantz 8001 support uncompressed 7.1 LPCM audio
streams? When I feed my 8001 a 7.1 uncompressed LPCM audio stream via
HDMI from my PS3 the AVR display only accepts multi-ch 5.1? What gives?
How can I obtain support for 7.1 LPCM streams?
