     Stellar reviews for this processor, every sound mode imaginable with 3D and 4K pass through.   Purchased from a local authorized dealer, it's in perfect condition, less than a year old.   PayPal 3%

    I am upgrading my L/R/C to Def Tech 8040s and want a new amp to power them. Currently I have a h/k 3550hd which is a little underpowered and lacking HDMI 1.4. Would you advise me to get the Marantz 7008 or go the used separates route with the Marantz 8077 and 7701 combo? I found a used...

    Question for you all. Taking XT32 out of the equation, is there any advantage either way between these 2 options, knowing I can add an amp to the 7008 later if I choose? Marantz SR7008 ($2000) or Marantz AV7701 with MM7055 ($2600) Looking to pull the trigger this week.

     So I've been considering upgrading from my current Marantz SR6008 to an AV7701 Pre/Pro and MM7025 2-Channel amp before purchasing a pair of MartinLogan ESLs to replace my current Polks, as I know 'Stats are a bit nit-picky about power. I was just about convinced to go ahead and make the bump...

    The following is a completely subjective A/B comparison focusing strictly on perceived audio quality of 2 channel music reproduction via digital inputs. Many of the units compared are not equals of technology or price, but only a result of what I had access to and my own curiosity. THE...

     I'm enjoying my new Marantz 7701 pre/pro....however, I'm unable to set volume past 74.  I suspect it's simply a safety mechanism kicking in that I'm unaware of.   I've set the Volume-Limit to Off and  toggled some of the Audyssey settings but I'm still unable to turn the volume past 74....my...

     Dear people,   Is it possible to use the AV7701 as a streamer only and route the signal to a preamplifier via analog signal? If so, which output do I use?   Is mediaplayer analog output the correct one?   Curious to learn what is possible. Its kind of a reversed passthrough I am looking...

    Just opened the box of my new Marantz AV7701 and decided to do a Firmware Update 'before' I connected it to the system. So I connected an ethernet cable from the Network port on the back of the AV7701 directly into a port on my Apple Airport Extreme router. The cable connections are 'live' at...

    So, I wanna know your opinion! I have a Marantz mm7055 amp and a Marantz AV7701 pre amp, Bowers and Wilkins CM10 for fronts, CMC2 for center, and DS3 for surrounds. I was looking at getting some good wires for my system. I was thinking audioquest Go-4 pre-terminated speaker cables. I wanna know...

    Putting together my first separate 7.2 AV system and need help in selecting my amp. I have decided to go with the Marantz AV-7701 for my processor. The amp will be driving three Fusion – 12 Tempest speakers LCR and not 100% sure what I’m using for the surrounds yet... probably the Fusion-8...
  13. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    So I've finally decided that I want to go with a pair of Bowers and Wilkins CM10 speakers. Currently I am running CM9 speakers with a Yamaha Aventage RX-A3010. I wanted to go with a new amplifier and pre-amp instead of using an AVR. My system is probably used for 90% music and 10% theater. I...

    Just picked up a Marantz AV 7701 pre/pro and hooked it up to my new Crown XLS 1500 via unbalanced RCAs. It sounds fantastic, but I wonder if I have the levels set correctly. I've been into home theater since I was old enough to save up and buy a Toshiba Cinema series tube in 1995, but I'm new...

  17. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
     Quick version:   Is it more worth it to get a better receiver with no amp, or a lesser quality (but still good) receiver with an amplifier?   Long version:   I get a great discount on Marantz units through my job and am about to upgrade my sound system a fair bit. Next paycheck, I'll be...
  18. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hey folks.... Yes, I know and understand the basic differences between separates and a one box receiver, but in the upper price category of 2-3 thousand, is a receiver a better choice, or are the separates in that same price range still the best option? An age-old conundrum to say the least...
