@ ColorChange -

I think a lot depends on what you can get for the 5805 used. Although you can use it as an amp, personally, I feel like it's somewhat of a waste to use a receiver as an amp only,...

Do we know that for a fact? There has to be a trade off and we know Eco mode is a current limiter to some degree. If on (not auto) there has to be some point at which it starts running out of steam...

Yes, unfortunately using DEQ makes multich stereo mode almost unlistenable. The surrounds are sent the same signal as the fronts but it's heavily boosted.

For the same reason it causes a mess with...

The 7009 is basically the Marantz souped up version of the X4100 with 9 amps. Its capabilities are the same as the X5200. Remember Marantz models are architecturally identical to the Denons.

7.1.2 + front heights would be 7.1.4, not 9.1.2.

In the Atmos nomenclature it's floor level speakers first and elevated speakers last.

That's the rating on the power supply (it's actually 780W), they don't specify what it means but I imagine it's the MAX continuous draw. It should be a fraction of that in normal use.
