 Hehehe...ok, they aren't really dates, but it's still a tough decision: I'm updating my A/V receiver, but I'm stuck between these two choices: http://us.marantz.co...oducts/2926.asp Posted Image

None of the above.  Onkyo or Denon would be my choice just for the Audyssey processing.  That's just my opinion.  I'm sure there are others who would disagree, but I've owned both and they were great and I would not look at any receiver that did not have Ausyssey at least at this point in time.

Of the two you asked about I'd take the H/K mostly because it's a more traditional avr. The Marantz certainly looks cool and if small size is important then it fit's the bill. But I think I'd take EzSet/Eq over M.R.A.C., I'm not sure if the Marantz converts video to 1080p, The H/K has Logic 7, 6/8 ch analog inputs and it weights almost 28 lbs. I'm sure the Marantz has it's strong points but I'd take the H/K. Now, had you asked about the Marantz 5004....
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.
