Question Sound Quality: Emotiva XMC-1 vs Marantz AV7705

Wondering about sound quality of Emotiva XMC-1 vs Marantz AV7705 - Has anybody listened to these two side by side or has some input on that?

I can't comment directly on your comparison but here is a link to a thread that may interest you: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/90-re...listening.html

Marantz 8802 vs. 7703 vs. 7702 vs. 7005 – 2ch critical listening tests (Also included Denon 4300)

We could not hear an audible difference with any of them in blind testing. I believe most mid and high end gear will sound the same to 99% of the people with the only true difference likely being the sound correction method (DIRAC, Audyssey, MCACC).

Good luck with your decision!

Interesting read.
I wish there had been a chance to add the Emotiva XMC-1 to the mix!
This is also why most official gear reviews are useless. They rarely compare things side-by-side with competing products of the same price bracket.
