I finally got the approval to upgrade the entire system.


Room Size: 13'x15'

Getting a new Panasonic TC-P50G25


Input is DirecTV - HDvr

Speakers- not sure- I have another thread going in the speaker forum asking for input there. Polk or Energy

Blue Ray- Not sure as well- I really like the Oppo , but it may be out of budget


I think the key is the receiver. Due to the cabinet space, I am leaning towards the Marantz 1601 or 1501. (depending on deals)


In searching, I cant find other thinner receiver options. Are these the best options for tighter spaces, or am I missing one?


Thanks

I'm happy with my 1501...not sure of any others like it.

I also was looking at these two options. My current receiver can only be removed by sliding my entertainment unit about 4 ft from the wall so I can pull it out from behind. It's too tall to remove from the front. From what I gather, the Marantz ones are the only thin options available.

Also, there is a thin Sherwood.

Also Arcam Solo Movie 5.1. All in one type of unit. No room correction or HD audio.

Marantz is pretty much the only player in this game unless you want to spring $1800 for the Denon S-5BD .



if at all possible, get the 1601 over the 1501 so you get Audyssey technologies (MultEQ + Dynamic EQ + Dynamic Volume) as opposed to the rudimentary MCACC setup in the 1501. Either will have plenty of power for a small room like that.

Thanks for all the responses. Love this forum - especially for noobs like me.



The 1601 was what I was leaning to as well....

MCACC is from Pioneer. Marantz's own set up routine is MRAC.
