I just replaced and a Marantz 7703 with the Integra DRC-R1 and couldn't be more impressed. First it does have OSD that works unlike the 7703 and their in house Room Correction did a much better job on my living room than Audyssey. I have a dedicated Theater with treatments and have been trying to get my living room to sound better. While I knew I wouldn't get that level of audio, I have tried Marantz's (7702mkii & 7703), Anthem's (MRX720 & AVM60), Yamaha's (5100 & 3080) and Emotiva XMC-1. Since I have Yamaha in the Theater I wanted to do something else in the living room, the Emotiva sounded the best but had issues. This is the first time I have been happy with the sound in my living room.
Their Room correction doesn't get enough credit if you ask me.
