I never said I didn't like the Yamaha, it is a fine amp for the money. It is simply not a clear as the Onkyo, but the Onkyo is itself lacking in other ways. In fact I have the older Yamaha RX-797 Stereo Receiver, which is the equivalent of the newer RS700.
From the Information I can gather, the Marantz ST5012 7.2 Channel AV Receiver
has about 100w/ch. A quick search of the Internet puts that amp at about US$1000. So, not exactly cheap amp. (not sure of the UK/EU prices)
I found the newest Marantz SR5013
selling for US$1000, and for UK£750. I bring up the cost to indicate that this is a pretty decent amp as AV Receivers go; well above average.
So, my question is, how is this not getting the job done in a way that leads you to want to add another amp to the system?
I don't believe you have specifically said how much MONEY you have for this upgrade. The Jamo C-93
are about £300 to £400/pr
Bookshelf speakers (6" bass driver, [email protected]).
To really understand what you have we would need to know all your speakers including the Subwoofer. The Dimensions of the Room would also be helpful.
So, let's get back to what you are trying to Improve and how much MONEY you have to spend.
Also, were are you located? US, EU, UK, other?
