You'll note that none of those pics indicates there is a toroidal transformer being used. ;) Marantz only lists using a toroidal transformer on the AV8802.

Very comparable. Although the A850 has main zone pre-outs, it will not be receiving the DTS:X update later this fall (only A1050 and higher) while the X2200W will receive the DTS:X update.

It's possible as Best Buy sometimes gets the new units early. AVScience isn't expecting our first shipment of the AV7702MKII and SR7010 until at least September. Taking pre-orders now.

1. Nope.
2. Although the FL/FR pre-outs can be used to expand from 9CH --> 11CH, the unused on board FL/FR amps cannot be reassigned.

You would be better served considering Atmos 5.2.4 as 4 overhead speakers should provide a much better experience. Connect a 2CH amp for the Zone 2 speakers.

1. No. this is not a feature on any Marantz models, rather only the Denon X7200WA can do this.

Yes. The Zone 2 and Zone 3 pre-outs are independent from the main zone speaker connections. Zone 3 can pass all networking sources but no HDMI sources.

Correct. If you don't have "height" channels, then none of the 3D immersive audio formats (Atmos, DTS:X, Auro 3D) "make sense."

You could try doing a soft reset by unplugging the power cord for 10 minutes. Could be the video card is going bad. Does it happen with video source devices?

The 2312CI can display the GUI on a 1080p signal just as can the newer models so more likely an issue with the PC; however, only the X3200W and higher models can display the GUI over 4k video.

Zone 2 HDMI is exactly what the name implies ..... it can pass a totally independent HDMI signal than what is playing in the main zone, or it can pass the same signal as is playing in the main zone.
