Doesn't the Marantz AV7005 pre|pro support Audyssey DSX and/or Dolby Pro Logic IIz? My 'personal preference' would likely be to keep the Carver and add a two to six channel 'lower power' amp to run a pair of Rear channels plus any Front Height or Front Wide channels I anticipated using in the next year or two...
