First I had my mind set on the Onkyo 696 but read some stuff about the Denon. And so was set again for Denon (even have an online authorized site at a good price). But here comes the Marantz SR 7200 which is cheaper. I am though a bit confused with the specs. The 3802 does DTS ES discreet but not DD 6.1, correct? The 7200 does DD 6.1 but not DTS ES discreet? Am I to understand that DD EX or 6.1 is matrixed and never discreet? Also, there's this thing about x-over which I may have a grasp of..I think. My main concern right now is am I leaving out a format by buying one of these fine receivers? I am a Star Wars fan (even bought an LD player for TPM) and I'd hate it if I won't be able to hear DD 6.1. But I also love DTS and listening to ES is one of my dreams. BTW, the speakers I will be using is a 6.1 Atlantic Technology 350 THX. See?...I even got 6.... ------------------ Eric Samonte Dito sa Pilipinas..may Hom Tiyeter rin kami!
