What is your opinion on both Marantz and Emotiva processors? I have an old Marantz SR18 reciever that I love but I'm looking to upgrade. The new Marantz I heard is not as good as older stuff. I'm debating between the Emotiva XMC-1 or Marantz AV7701/ AV8003(used)? How is the Emotiva? I'm running B&W 600 series with a REL Strata III. Any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance?
