    I've been trying to figure out what the differences are between the AVR7200 and AVR525, and can't come up with anything except power output. Is that the case? Here are the sources I've used:
    http://www.dba-pr.com/clients/harman...es/avr7200.htm
    http://www.harmankardon.com/product_...207200&sType=C
    http://www.harmankardon.com/product_...%20525&sType=C
    The comparison chart (available from the HK links above) shows that the AVR7200 uses a toroidal power transformer vs the 525's EI core. Whatever that means. Anyway, power related, at least. Also, it says that the 7200 uses Cirrus DSP engine, while the 525 (and other receivers, including the 8000) uses Crystal DSP engine. What does that mean? Anything?
    I hope there's more of a reason to buy the AVR7200 than just power.... (like main-ins, Logic7 on 5.1, etc).

    The 7200 *might* have Logic 7 for 5.1 sources...

    i read that the 7200 will not be available for purchase until after christmas, so if that's a factor then just stick with the 525 and use the extra $$ to get a nice multi-channel amp if you need more power.
