I want to get a new reciever, my use will be 90% home theater. I want to have a 6.1 setup. My budget was orginally around $500 and I had settled on the Outlaw or the Marantz. I threw out the Outlaw b/c DPLII. I would go with the Marantz if I could get a definate yes to one question - Does it do 6.1 DD and DTS? I know it won't do DTS discreet, and the 2802 will, but is it worth the extra money (100-150$). I think i can get the marantz for 500 and I'm not sure on the Denon. What are your guys' opinions in general on these 2 recievers -- which way should I go? And how does the marantz handle 6.1 -- does it send info to the sixth channel only on 6.1 DTS or will i get sound from that speaker on 6.1 DD and also can i make it matrix the sound and create a channel for 5.1 DTS and DD. I really want to buy one of these but want to make the right choice.
