Do u think FWs offset only a foot would add "much" given the cost to go to a 5200?[/QUOTE]

Keith - is any sound coming out of the heights?

It's definitely a current limiter of some kind. In the Audioholics review they measured power at like 25w/ch in 4ohm mode (which piggybacks on ECO mode). Now that's probably enough for most...

He double posted in both threads. So you're not going crazy. (Well you might be but this isn't an example of it)

More accurate to say that HE (Grimani) said it was his preference for how to use...

With D/M models typically only the "flagship" offers fully custom amp assign like your 4311. So in this year it would only be the upcoming X7200.

The Marantz 7009 is based on the X4100 platform,...

Yes, that's how it works. Tap-tap-tap for small (0.5dB increment) changes, and if you hold it down it kicks into higher velocity mode. The key is to develop the "feel" for when it kicks in so you...

My bad, yes, I forgot the 7702 is basically the pre/pro version of the 7009 which is based on the same platform as the X4100, not the 5200.
