    Hi all, I'm new and I wanted to get some reccomendations on my first hifi home cinema build. I was thinking of: - 5.1 system (not sure which speakers yet) - Marantz SR5009 / SR7008 amplifier & amplifier Room is about 40 square meters. Wifi/bluetooth aren't needed since I have an ethernet...

    I'm trying to decide between these two receivers. I have decided not to do separates due to space constraints. The denon seems to have the better bells and whistles as well as as 32 bit dac and more powerful 150W amps but I've heard that the house sound of the marantz tends to be better...

    I'm finishing building a home theater and am starting to listen to speakers. I currently like the CM10's and the Revel F208's. (I can buy the F208's used for $3500). That said, my ears slightly preferred the low and mids on the CM10's, but the bass is amazing on the F208. I found my...

    I am new to the game and recently purchased a SR5008 and was wondering if it would be enough to power a 7.1 set of Silver 6 Monitor Audio speakers. I heard the RX8 with a NAD and I thought the sound was good, but I have heard Monitor Audio's can be difficult to drive and can be picky with...

    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.

    Hello all, I could use some help. I was set on getting the new B&W 683s with the Marantz 7007, but now I'm conflicted. I have spent hours upon hours listening to speaker and receiver combos and I thought I had my mind made up but here's the dilemma; from my understanding the 683s are the most...

     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.

B&K reminds me of another company who stated they were in it for the long term, upgradeable boards, trade in programs, and yes, Made in the USA. well, I bought into it and regret it. I don't care if it is made in the US or not, I just...

    After an eternity struggling with Marantz, I finally talked them out of sending me refurbished units to replace my oft-detonating SR 7005, and supply me with a new SR 7008. I have a big, big live room (over 5000 cubic feet), and I was hoping that the XT32 would help me tame it a bit. But...

    Hey guys... This may or may not have been discussed on here, but I can't find any threads. I just bought a Marantz SR7008 with Audyssey XT32, and I was wondering if anyone knows if it would be an improvement if I ran my Velodyne sms-1 over it, or not. Is the XT32 superior to the Velodyne EQ...
