Can we assume that will likely be a new 7006 on the horizon? That would screw up my selection process and budget!
[quote=AJF;21521232]dino if you have a BestBuy/Magnolia dealer near you, they usually have both receivers set-up in the demo room for you to play around with so I think that would be a something to do that might help you decide. QUOTE] Yeah, I tried the Magnolia visit. Unfortunately, the closest one, the listening room was a cluster... (maybe I better say) "somewhat dysfunctional" Half of the receivers only had one channel connected. Another good portion, including the...
I know the world seems to be built around Apple gadgets, but has anyone used the Android version of the control app?
I am looking at the same two receivers - REALLY tough desicision! Feature wise, they seem to be nearly identical. I like the look and uniqueness of the Marantz and the "porthole", not to mention the legacy of the name, but am concerned, that I will not adjust well to the lack of controls on the faceplate as well as the limited information that the porthole provides.

I wasn't really shopping for an AV receiver, although quite a while now I have been watching for the right feature set / price point / spare cash factors to all collide! I tend to make “quality” well researched purchases and keep them a very long time. I'm still using my 90's era Carver gear. It still works and It still sounds great, but I'm not getting utilization of all the modern A/V features. So as I've read reviews over the last several years, I have gotten kind of...
