Marantz 8012 or Emotiva MC 700 & XPA 7 Gen3

Just wanting opinions on which way some people smarter than me would go. Price is almost equal. All the extra features the Marantz has I don’t really use. The Anthem MRX 720 has also been in and out of consideration.

I liked the Marantz for the build quality and the toroidal power supply . Going with an AVR it seems to be the best way to go

Looks like the emotiva is 7.1 only. I didn’t see any mention of Atmos processing. Is that right?

I wouldn’t get something that doesn’t offer immersive audio processing (you may want it later if not now), and neither of those other processors seem to provide room correction either. The room is one of the important factors in what you hear so correcting for room issues is important. If the price is similar for those options, I would get the Marantz. Hopefully, you have quality speakers before spending that kind of money on an AVR.

PS. I would buy an ac infinity T8 or 9 to keep the Marantz cool which will protect it from the heat it generates.
