Hello, I am new to the site but have been creeping a lot though. I figured why not make a account. Anyways, I am new to separate s but as well as the HT world but I LOVE watching movies so I am slowly building a nice HT.. that is why I am thinking about going with separates. Anyways, I was just wondering what would be some good brands i have around 3,000 to spend? I have been doing research I first was thinking marantz AV7701 and the MM7055 but I also don't mind going used.

Thank you..

P.S i never mention this but i am looking for a 7.1 system but with a 5 channel amp. I was planning on adding the others later on.

You could get an Emotiva UMC-200 processor and an XPA-5 amp for under $1500. No AVR can match the power of the XPA-5 - and as for the UMC-200 - it works. Mostly. Some buyers have problems with it but most do not. YMMV. As always.

Yamaha A-S1000 Int. Amp - Polk LSiM705's - Denon DCD-1500 - Marantz TT42 - Emo XDA-2 DAC - (WWG1WGA)
Multi-Channel: Yamaha RX-A2070 - Polk LSiM706c Center - Emo ERD-1 Surrounds

Or you could go Marantz AV7701 and Emotiva XPA-5 if you don't care about having mixed components in your rack.

Denon AVR X7200WA, Emotiva XPR-5, Emotiva XPA-7, Sony XBR 85" X900F, Oppo UDP-203, Roku Ultra.
DefTech BP7000SC (L/R), CLR3000 (C), SM55 (FH), UIW BPZ/A (SB), UIW 75 (TM).
JBL L7 (Sur), EoSone RSR 350 (RH).
PC 2.1 setup. Emotiva Stealth 6, SVS SB16-Ultra sub, Emotiva DC-1 DAC.
