Hi all this is my first post to the forum. I would welcome your advice on the following. At present I have a Yamaha RX A 2040. I have 30 days to try it at home. I am also looking at the Marantz AV7702. Would there be an advantage to upgrade from the Yamaha to Marantz?

You do realize that the 7702 is a preamp/processor, not a receiver, and would require an external amp? That's an apples to oranges comparison, as the 7702 with a good amp should outperform the 2040 or virtually any receiver.

No I didn't know. I read the specs several times and still missed that part, I don't feel very smart right now Thanks for letting me know. That explains the thread I read about the Marantz SR7009 being easier to resell. I do have an emotiva 5 channel amp that I am using with the Yamaha 2040. I believe the 7009 and the 7702 have the same features except the 7009 is a 9.2 reciever?
