Did you get the five or seven channel version? The ATI is one of the top amps I've ever reviewed. Outstanding engineering.

It may be a matter of horse power as well with the processing chips in the current generation of AVRs and new chips will be needed for them. Who knows at this point.

There will be one setup parameter in the Marantz AV8802 (or so I've been told by Marantz). The firmware will probably be much later this year...I couldn't pin them down on a timeline.

Chris,

"Lone Survivor" and "American Sniper" are two totally different types of movies, but I enjoyed each of them in different ways. You should definitely give it a viewing when it hits Blu-ray.
