Denon AVR-4520CI or Marantz SR7008 for klipsch reference system

I'm trying to decide between these two receivers. I have decided not to do separates due to space constraints. The denon seems to have the better bells and whistles as well as as 32 bit dac and more powerful 150W amps but I've heard that the house sound of the marantz tends to be better, especially considering that the klipsch's will need a less bright receiver since they already tend toward that direction. I am also considering the x4000 but I don't really see it competing with these two. Thanks!

Are you sure you want to spend that much money and not get Dolby Atmos? If I were in the market for a receiver right now, I would definitely look at the Denon AVR‑X5200W.

I'm rather certain I wont be mounting any overhead speakers anytime soon so I don't know that I could necessarily justify the $500 price increase. I'm stretching thin for these as it is.

I'd go with the 4520 if prices are equal between that and the 7008, because it has many more features. The Marantz could possibly sound better, but the 4520ci is a beast.

I'm now also considering anthem. They seem to be very high quality.
