AVS Choice - Marantz NR1608/SR5012/other

Hi,

I am new to this forum as a user. I have been using these pages extensively to read opinions about different hardware. I am looking at getting a new receiver. I currently have a KS8500 from samsung that uses HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0ab. My receiver (Marantz 5008) is currently hooked up to a 4.1 system with paradigm monitor 7s on the front and a paradigm sub as well.

Since my receiver does not output true 4K (only HDMI 1.4 and HDCP 2 I think) I need to get a new head unit. Can someone tell me if I should save the money and go with a slim nr1608 system? I am also looking at a SR5012 for a couple hundred more (refurbished).

Also, any other amp suggestions would be appreciated. I use the system 50/50 for music and home theatre. I just want to make sure that I continue to make my speakers shine.

Thanks!

The SR5012 features better quality HDAM pre-amps so for music listening that would be your better option.

Thank you! That is noted. So in the 600-700$ range, I am making a good choice going for a Marantz again?
