As I've posted, I'm strongly considering a Marantz 8500. I wanted to ask, though, what are some of the most "musical" sounding receivers in the 125 watt range? Also, what receivers seem to have the best build quality, best reliability? How do Yamaha receivers in this range compare? I'm looking for purity in music. I think I've read that Yamaha receivers tend to have a more "processed" sound? Is this true? How is the build quality and reliability of the Yamahas? Oh - by the way. Am I under the right impression that Marantz receivers are some of the better quality receivers out there? I do know the 8500 has been out for a while, so I'm not sure if I should wait on a possible 8600... Thanks!
