Anthem MRX 520 vs Marantz SR7010

I need some help to choose a new receiver.
The options are Anthem MRX 520 or Marantz SR7010.

My speakers are B&W 684 S2 + 686 S2 + HTM62 + KEF PSW 2100 (5.1 system).

I 've heard and Anthem MRX 520, and loved the sound quality, but the Marantz have more features.

For now I not interested in Atmos/DTS:X, or expand to 7.1, but in the future who knows…
Anyone know if the Anthem MRX 520 have this feature like the Marantz?
“Volume smoothes out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels and still enjoy clear dialog, music and sound effects. “


Thanks for the help

I read somewhere on this forum, that a poster preferred the warm sound of the Marantz vs the Anthem. I am biased as I own a Marantz SR7009 w/ ML speakers (7.2.4) and it sounds great. I've never owned an Anthem, but I have owned Yamaha hi-end receivers and Rotel separates, which is the basis for my comparison. You can probably go into BB and hear it for yourself. I got a killer deal on this Marantz, even though I had no intentions on upgrading, YMMV of course. Hope this helps.

Peace and blessings,

Azeke
