I have a feeling in the stomache that Marantz has stopped making the 5-channel line of slimline receivers. I.e. Marantz wont be releasing the NR-1505 this year and if someone wants the 5-channel version, they'll have to get last year's version.
Correct me if this line of thinking is wrong.
Marantz SR-7009, Oppo BPD-93, MTV 7000D, aTV, Harmony Home Control remote, KEF E301+T101, MiniDSP (2x4)+(10x10HD)+(DDRC-88A), Emotiva 2xXPA-5 (Gen2), Rythmik 2xF12G+2xF8, HiMedia Q16, LG 55EC9300.
