Good to hear from you again.
Yes indeed, I have my eyes on a few things. Like you, room treatments have been in consideration for some time now. In January, I will be installing 6 Auralex 24" x 48" panels to go with the LENRD Bass traps I've already installed.
I'm also looking at multi-channel amps, preferably a pre-owned Sunfire Cinema Grand 200.5/7 or a Rotel RMB-1095. It's not like the Marantz isn't up to the challenge, but I do believe that in conjunction with the room treatments, the multi-channel amp will help improve the sound quality.
I've been checking eBay and Audiogon.com for the last couple weeks watching the bidding. I really prefer the Sunfire because of it's size and because of my available rack space, I can relocate the power centers to the audio racks, remove the CD and DVD changers, which are no longer necessary and position the Cinema Grand right next to the Marantz AVR.
I'm still deciding whether to replace the 1st Gen. XBox with a PS3 or a 360!
And of course, how can I forget!?!
The completion of the cable management endeavor/project! Man, is it a PITA!
I've had to replace 2 HDMI cables, 6 sets of analog interconnects and 4 digital cables so far with longer runs! Trying to achieve cable management harmony can get expensive
That's it for now.
Happy Holiday's to you and family!
