Question for long-time Marantz owners.

I'll be receiving my replacement 7009 tonight.

Is there any way to back-up settings from my current 7009 so I can restore them to the replacement?

LOL! I can vouch for that. My new 7009 is far cooler than the old Onkyo TX-NR905 that it replaced.

Do you know if Marantz has a way to place the remote into "discrete mode" to obtain direct codes that could be used to manipulate settings not on the remote? The reason I...

Question - does the Bluetooth support bidirectional communication?

The reason I ask is I have a pair of Bluetooth headphones that are used to listen to television/movies while on the treadmill.

I was to exited, and my noisy daughter was hovering, so I couldn't shoot an unboxing video, but grabbed some stills.
