Did you finally end up getting the Marantz?After being fed up with the bugs on my Arcam AV40 and it still not properly working on channels 13/14 with DLBC, I had to return it today.
We are going to be without a processor so our theater will be down, but we just cannot take the inconsistent reliability anymore of this processor, despite getting a great deal on it.
To anyone who's considering Arcam, I would say if you have the patience for the new firmware updates and have an open mind with bugs/troubleshooting and you can get a great deal from a dealer like i did, it may be worth it.
For us, life is way too short so we are going to most likely go with the Monoprice HTP-1 since we love our reliable amp from them. It is currently backordered though. If we decide not to get that, then we will do the Marantz 8805, but we are leaning towards paying more for the Monoprice (HTP-1 is more for us because our dealer doesn't offer a discount for Monoprice but they offer one on the Marantz).
I truly hope Arcam works out the bugs for you guys and thanks for always replying to my concerns and remarks regarding my AV40.
