I'm also interested, particularly in experiences with the Marantz SR-18EX or the Meridian 500 series...

Hey! I don't have any SH-AC500D and I never did!
A long time ago I became resigned to having obsolete equipment, but that doesn't diminish my enjoyment a bit.

I have a Panny SHAC500D, and it DOES have the audio dropout problem!

This might also be caused by your DST50/51 overheating mildly (not enough to cause pixelation), rather than a failing on the part of the SHAC-500. If you are not already doing so, try running an external fan over the top of the unit, blowing air across the top vents. See if this helps. If you have a DST50, is it one that has been repaired?
You don't mention how severe your dropout problem is.In terms of realistic expectations, before I got to SHAC-500 the dropouts were so annoying so as to make it impossible to sit through a movie. With the SHAC I may occasionally get one or two dropouts, but that's also the number if pixelations I might get.
