Now, as I can see at this time, price here in Europe for 8002 will be the same as for onkyo 905 (excuse me if I'm wrong)
Now the only question is what is best ?

I know that marantz should be better for stereo listening but for HT I don't know. What is your opinion ?

I've had an older Marantz 4300 for a couple of years now & have just upgraded to a 7.1 speaker setup. I love the sound, warm & rich with an even wider sound stage now that I've added tower speakers.

The unit runs dead cold, most of the time its only been driving 2x bookshelf Jamos but I was surprised to find its still cold to touch even after adding the 6.1 setup. I was going to shell out for the 7001 at Xmas but if these new units are going to be out in the next 6 months (Aust) I'd be happy to wait. Love the sound!

Anyone have a guess at the prices of these things? I'm definately interested unless Pioneer's new Elite flagship is a real monster that I can't pass up.

SR8002 - $2000
SR7002 - $1400

Interesting. Online retailer New York Wholesale Audio Video ( I had never heard of them before) lists the SR 4002, 5002, 7002 and 8002 (BUT NO 6002) on their website for $510, $625, $1,325, and $1,603. (link here)

This seems to follow the release pattern of last year's models.

I have not called them to check yet, nor have I called my local Marantz retailer. I guess let's see what comes out of Cedia in the next few days.

Does the 7002 have dual HDMI output as well?

I can't stress the importance of dual HDMI outs for us projector owners. I don't like wasting my bulb for videogames. I'd much rather have a 42" plasma in the same room that I can use for gaming and my projector for watching movies.

No animals were harmed in the creation of this sentence.

I love gaming on my projector. Adds a whole new experience I can't get from a 42"! A $300 tax every 2 years isn't bad for that.

That's a good question. My gut feeling is that it should, but then again, neither the SR 8001 nor the SR 7001 had dual HDMI out if I remember correctly...

It doesn't sound like it includes any video upscaling, which is a disappointment, if only because it's something that the competitors can claim they *do* have.

Still, I don't trust the other brands for sound quality. I have very revealing Magenapan speakers and whew.. the others (HK, Denon, Yamaha, etc) sure have not sounded as good as my old Marantz AV 9000 on them.

Question now is, does the HDMI 1.3 matter enough for me to upgrade to an 7002/8002 or will a 7001/8001 do? Hmmm....

I'd like to see the press release/more info to know if HDMI 1.3 and the new codes are the *only* differences between these and last years models.

No scaler is a good thing to me, it seems to be keeping the price down, my new tv will scale well, DVD has a reon in it, I see your point, but the rear panel sreams high end audio to me. I hope I can wait.

So I stopped by the local Magnolia store today and they had no date for the 7002/8002 yet. However the Pioneer 92/94 were there. They look MASSIVE.

It will be an interesting show down. The 92 has only 2 HDMI input however, whereas the 7002 is supposed to get 4...

Based on the pictures, it does not seem like they will have any networking capabilities.

I don't know yet whether that would bother me, because I currently use my Tivo and my PS3 to stream stuff over the network with my SR4001.

I stopped by the Marantz website today, and they have dropped the 9600 receiver from their product listing. That makes me wonder if they are going to get out of the more expensive equipment market, but keep their very expensive Reference products.

Still no news.

Does anyone have any "insider" information as to availability?

I cannot wait to start the 92/94 Pio Elite vs Marantz 7002/8002 thread.

Anyone have details or can flesh out description of "HDMI repeating"?

I posted on the "Official Marantz" page but don't know when the Marantz guy will post again.

If this does what I think it does, it could be a big selling point with us projector owners. It would seem logical to me also that with the xx02 models being same platform as the xx01, Marantz has had a chance to iron out the kinks (firmware, minor build issues). Does this seem logical? Or wishful thinking?

I could care less about the new sound formats but if its a true repeater, then it should boost the signal on long HDMI runs, something thats of concern to me. I'll also be interested if a "Repeater" makes unit more compatible with older HDMI 1.1 (or prior) source devices that have handshake issues and the like. I seem to recall reading that early receivers had many handshake issues because source device didn't allow switching or something like that....

Anyone have better info (or memory)?

Its not just a hobby, its a 401K reduction plan.

An easy question for all of you Marantz guys.

I have owned Marantz stereo receivers before and an LP player. The Marantz 8002 will be my first HT Marantz.

On my old Denon it had a "party" mode for all 7 channels driven for stereo sources.

Will these new Marantz's have an "all channels" mode for 2 channel sources (such as cd, LP's, etc..)?

How would you say the Marantz audio quality compares to NAD. I have heard the Marantz tends to be more music oriented as compared to the denon products.

I would have liked to have seen a Reon video processor on the SR8002.
