Question for you fine gentlemen...
I currently run an 8801 in my dedicated theater (gear in sig). Recently upgraded my display to 4K so now obviously my proc is the weak link video wise. With the recent price plunge on the 7702mkii, would this be a sonic downgrade over my 8801, or would I not notice or possibly detect a slight improvement? I already thought my room sounded transcendent, so if my SQ is a lateral move im cool with that...just not with stepping backwards.
My room is basically pure TV/Movie/Gaming applications...very rare Tidal streaming (I primarily use discrete sonos play ecosystem around the house for my music needs).
Thanks in advance.
