    My AV8801 just notified me that there is a new firmware update available. Before I load it - can someone tell me what the update improves? It will take about an hour to do and I just assume skip it unless the improvements are significant Thanks

     The OPPO 105BD recognizes the files and plays them from the network NAS, and usb input, however the 8801 sees the file NAS and ipd/usb music folders but shows them  as .    Anyone have a quick fix?

    Within the last few weeks, all of a sudden my 8801 will switch inputs to the M-X Port without me doing anything. It happens some time after I turn it on, with no set timing. Sometime it's a few minutes, sometimes in after an hour. Does anyone else see this? It happens pretty much every time I...

    I have a dilemma. I can buy for about the same price a brand new Marantz AV-8801 or a used Anthem AVM50V-3D in mint condition. It is not an upgraded AVM50V. It was bought in July 2013. Both processor have great reviews and it's difficult for me to make a decision. I would say that I use my...

    Ok, so after hours of research I pulled the trigger on an AV8801! Will be replacing a Denon AVR-A100 which has served me well, I am now curious to hear the sonic differences between the two. I am now waiting for UPS to deliver my XPA-5 in a few hours so I can begin putting everything back...

    I own a denon AVP1 but my brother purchased the marantx 8801. On the AVP1 you can hit the enter button and the speaker levels appear on the screen so you can adjust them + or - 12db. Can you do this on the Marantz as well?

    I've had two Denon X4000's go bad in one month. They just start shutting off after a bit of usage and the red light starts blinking. I'm really starting to dislike the Denon brand because of this. Does anyone think it is worth the price difference to jump from the X4000 to the AV8801/MM8077...

  20. Ultra Hi-End HT Gear ($20,000+)
    Earlier in the year I sold my MC12B and purchased a Marantz 8801. The main reason, besides the hype over the 8801, was HDMI hook-up and how well XT32 integrated my sub into my HT system. Even though the Marantz is very good it still lacks enough sound quality compared to my Lexicon that I can...
