My old receiver died when I hooked it up in my new house, that is prewired with speakers in 6 different rooms. I need a replacement receiver/amp that has enough power for all 6 rooms. Airplay would be great.I was looking at the Marantz SR7007. I think is some respects this is overkill because I have a desperate home theater room too and this will probably go there.Any suggestions appreciated.Oh and I will be hunting a good projector soon.

Every receiver ever made has enough "power" for 6 rooms(which, how many total speakers?).

 

How did you wire this?

 

Series?

Parallel(would explain the death)?

Speaker switch(if a cheap one without impedance matching, explains the death)?

Marantz receivers aren't exactly the best value out there. I think the 7007 is based on the Denon 3313 even though it's in a taller chassis and weights a pound or two more it's pretty much the same receiver. Don't get me wrong, I like Marantz receivers. They're very attractive and easy to setup and operate but at anywhere near full retail they're just not that good of a deal.  I have a 6005 and a 5005 but they bought used or as a factory refurbished.


"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.

Here's a comparison chart of the 7007 and 3313

Thanks for the advice. I didn't actually hook it up. This is a friends system, but they asked me for advice. I am a computer guy, so I said I'd inquire. The receiver was an old one, and I don't know how it was hooked up when it died.
