    Hi all,
    I have narrowed down my choices to 2 receivers.
    HK 520
    Marantz 6200
    I have Klipsch KT-LCR THX speakers. They are bright, but not as bright as the refence series.
    I listened to the denon 2802, 3802 and a couple of Yamahas.
    I liked the 3802 best out of everything I listened to, but it is a litte to much $ for now. The 2802 didn't sound as good to me.
    Feature wise which do you thnk would be better in the long run. Don't really plan on upgrading to seperate amps, but you never know.[​IMG]
    Thanks for the help,
    Mark

    Does the 6200 allow you to use both "A" and "B" speakers at the same time? I know with the Marantz 5200 receiver, this wasn't an option so I passed on it.

    That is not a big concern because this will be used in a dedicated HT Room

    I don't think any of the x200 line has A-B speaker capability. (not sure) but the 6200 does not. I don't really have a need for or really see too much use for this feature either.
    Both the 520 and 6200 have preamp outs, so no problem there.
    Honestly, I was looking at the 510 and the 6200, before the 520 was announced (and even the 3802) and I chose the 6200 because it cost less and sounded as good as the 3802 to me.
    I say it is a toss up, with nice features on both sides. Can't go wrong with either one.
