Is it more worth it to get a better receiver with no amp, or a lesser quality (but still good) receiver with an amplifier?
I get a great discount on Marantz units through my job and am about to upgrade my sound system a fair bit.
Next paycheck, I'll be ordering a pair of Polk RTI A7 towers and am currently running off of a Sony STR-DN840 receiver. The setup will just be two channel for now (the two Polks), but I'll likely get a center later on.
I'll be using this setup mostly for music, with movies/TV as an added bonus.
With my budget, I am stuck between these three options:
1. Marantz SR-6008 Receiver
2. Marantz NR-1604 Receiver & PM-6005 Amplifier
3. Marantz AV-7701 Reciever/Amplifier
Which would be the better option in your opinion?
