I'm a huge fan of the Marantz. The new models are coming out, which means big discounts on this years models at the right dealer. There isn't any reason to go sub-standard on the receiver. Most of the other receiver manufacturers boast bogus claims on power output. Some of them claim to have output of 130 watts x 7 but with all channels driven are more realistically capable of 40-50w.
