I have been looking for ages at agetting a new receiver and after much deliberation have come down to HK or Marantz. I originally was going to get the Yamaha 2500 when it releases but after much talk on this board and listening to many HK's and a few Marantz receivers I found the music quality to be alot nicer on my chosen two. I will say that the HT on the Yamahas kicks ass in my opinion. I have not had a chance to hear the HK or the Marantz pushing some HT through and was wondering what you all think about those two (HK and Marantz) in regards to HT. I wasn't looking at anything as much as the HK 7200 but I may buy one only a few months old for around $700. I think the $ is a little high for a used receiver but that is always negotiable. Can you guys give me some input as to HK and Marantz pros and cons. Is the HK 7200 as fantastic as it seems? As much info would really be appreciated. I dont want to spend more than $800 to $900 max. I am sure some of you guys that have been on these boards for ever are sick to death of the same old questions and i'm sorry but I really need some help. I dont make tons of cash and really want to make a good decision. Thanks.
