Does this receiver offer any sonic advantages over the SR7008? I would be using it in a 5.1 system only. I am only concerned with audio fidelity.

Currently have an AV7005 in a forever 5.1 system. Which would be the superior choice between the 7702 and the 8801 so far as audio fidelity is concerned in both 2 channel, and Blu Ray disc play back?...

You got a good deal on the 75, and you don't need the extra features of the SC85. Keep the 75 in place, and don't look back!

Sounds like you may be "on the fence" about whether or not you want to keep it. I would be hesitant about spending my hard earned money on a lateral move, or even worse.... a downgrade.
