I own an SR6200. I am happy with the sound quality and power in general but I have not enjoyed the bass management of 100 hz. I want to have better bass management. I want to keep 6.1 capability and would also like to keep DPL II. I will be happy for now if I match the power and sound quality of this receiver. I was thinking that the Outlaw 950 Pre-Pro would be a good bet used along with a Marantz MM9000 5 channel amp. I'd have very good bass management and better power, but to purchase both items, I'd be stretched thin. Noticabley better than whats in the 6200. In thinking about this, I have come up with a few interesting other ideas. Opinions? Benefits? Drawbacks? Ideas 1) Outlaw 950 pre-outs>Marantz SR6200 7 channel input>speakers (with the exception of Outlaw sub preout to my subwoofer of course)? 6200 stays locked on 7 channel input. Ultimately, if I want more power, I would shop for a Marantz MM9000 and sell/trade my SR6200. Its just that I came to the realization that if I bought an Outlaw 950 (whenever they are available) I could use it the second I got it out of the box. The only question is.....what if any bass management is applied to the 7 channel input? If there is none, then fine, otherwise, its useless right? 2) SR 6200 pre-outs>ICBM>Marantz MM9000. This has one added bonus. I have two complete 5 channel amps. maybe good for a second zone somehow? I have no other way of improveing my current receivers bass management except for one last option. This might be the least expensive, but there are issues... 3) SR 6200: FRONT=LARGE and SUB=NO. RIGHT and LEFT out into crossover. Crossover sub out into sub, left and right out into stereo amp. Say an NAD C270? Problems include the fact that with SUB=NO, with the center and surrounds set to SMALL they will crossover the bass to the fronts, which will then crossover AGAIN to the subwoofer. I believe thats cascading crossovers and may not produce optimal results. Remember, the idea is to spend as little as possible but acheive 1) better bass management and 2) more power as an added bonus in the end. Any ideas on which way is best? Is the Marantz MM9000 one of the least expensive but GOOD amps for use with the 950?
