Any experience for the receiver? not going down from my previous choice just trying to save if its actually good.

@phantom32 I saw that thread but didn't found any one tied with Klipsch. Anyhow I went to another dealer today. He had NAD receivers. He was praising them so much, but on cost = features level I don't find them correctly.
I've heard T748 and 758v2. Both were good but 748 was 40-7.2 and 758. Was 60watts at 8ohms. While marantz writes 110watts in 6012. So why so much cost of NAD? Or I'm understanding wrong?

Guys i know i took too long to decide. I just saw today Denon X4300 at $799. while marantz 6012 at $999. on amazon. Which is better? I mean i read other thread for compare, users says Marantz 6012 = Denon X3300, but 3300 was 7.2. while 6012 is 9.2 ch right? Then wouldn't Denon x4300 =Marantz 6012?? Which one is better guys?

Depends on if you are going to only 7.2 or 9.2 on the Marantz. I don't ever seeing myself going with Atmos. However IMO if my decision were between the Denon or the Marantz it would definitely be the Marantz. Have you given the Yamaha 2070 a serious look? Yamaha's are still the most reliable AVR's in the market and also deliver great sound for both music and movies.

@phantom32 i have actually checked Yamaha 2070 but it's going very much over budget it's currently $1599. Marantz 6012 comes about $999. And Denon x4300 about $800. In these price I think there are no other 9.2 ch receivers in market. That's why initially I was thinking of Yamaha 1070. But then I thought im gettinf 9.2 for same.
Though I don't have any space for 9th channel, but my mind says, to get more for money spend.

The best bargain seems to be the Denon X4300. Sorry that the Yamaha 2070 is out of range. Maybe look to see if a Yamaha 2060 is still available somewhere that comes with a warranty. Good luck but it seems you should give the X4300 a try out in your home.

Get the Denon AVR-X4300H and call it a night!!!! Best deal on an Atmos receiver going today!!! 9.2 out the box and with an external amp can do 11.2 (7.1.4)!

If you don't mind refurbished - you can get the X4300H for $699 at Accessories4less or you can get it for about $680 at OneCall!!!

Well, I'd agree that for audio quality and prowess, Onkyo is the way to go at most price points. They just seem to have more serious amplifier stages. I just bought and installed an Onkyo TX-NR676 for my mom at $459.99 and am quite surprised and pleased with the audio for that price. My Onkyo TX-NR809 has awesome sound and has never had the dreaded HDMI issue. Now, that said, I think that deal on the Denon X4300 seems too good to pass up. I also have a Denon X5200 and the audio is about as good as the Onkyo 809.

FAMILY ROOM--Legacy Signature II tower speakers(Front L/R), PSB Image 5T tower speakers(Surrounds), Denon AVR-X5200W, Krell FPB 400cx, AR ES-1 turntable w/ Audioquest 404-B cartridge, Oppo UDP-203 UHD Blu-ray Player, RCA HD-DVD player, Samsung HL67A 750A TV
MASTER BEDROOM--Dynaudio Audience 82 tower speakers, Outlaw LFM-1 sub, Yamaha RX-V1800 receiver, Sherbourn 5/1500A 5-channel amp, Oppo BDP-83 Universal Disc Player, Panasonic 60-ST60 plasma TV.

Marantz has 11.2 channel processing, Yamaha has only 7.1.

You can see more detailed comparison here:

Out of these two, Marantz definitely.

Anthem mrx1120 I had was nice and did have good detail. Was just to expensive at $3500. It's really a $1500 avr. After a bunch of rew and custom eq my onkyo rz1100 and integra r1 have just as much detail with more impact and much more power. Again just my opinion

Also the Yamaha 3060 is very good as well and I liked it better then anthem as well. The 1120 had many issues with 4k and hdr. Arc was a nightmare too.

I will be looking at next generation anthem though.

For the op I'd buy a onkyo or Yamaha. Marantz is way to much money and xt32 is WAY overrated and a crutch for to many people to not learn how to setup a system.
Hi, i had rz1100 but the sound was thin, softer and less bass (Mid), i test anthem 1120 in my room, 1120 is far better than 1100 (clearer, dynamic and trong bass - mid bass, surround), How can i make EQ on 1100 for better?
Tks in advance!

I doubt you can. The Anthem is a $3K AVR
