It's a little confusing because sometimes people refer to them with the model number for the system vs. the speaker. So in order to really scour the used market you have to look for both.

There is a network standby setting (IP control) which can be disabled or enabled in Standby. When disabled the receiver is "asleep" in standby and can't be accessed by network apps.

The Denon X7200WA is basically the receiver version of the Marantz 8802A processor. I would expect the sound quality to be fairly similar.
