Hi all, my HT: RF-82II, RC-64II, RS-62II and sub Vel DD10, Pow B&K 200.7S2. Who can help me choise pre between Integra DHC-80.1 or Marantz AV7005.

AV7005 have 3D, HDMI 1.4a, Price about 900$ (used)

DHC-80.1: HDMI 1.3a, Price about 1000$ (used).

DHC-80.2? price about 1200$ (used) but have 3D, HDMI 1.4a, Audyssey XT32 (better XT?)

Thanks alot.

The XT32 in the Integra DHC-80.2 is worth the additional $$ IMO. The Marantz has a warmer sound which benefits Classical and light Jazz music but can be a little dull sounding for movies and more up beat music. I had the AV7005 for a couple of months but now have a Onkyo 5508 which is the same as the 80.2. For me the 5508 bests the 7005 for music as well since It is a bit more detailed and the bass is definitely much improved with XT32 and SubEQ.
