I just bought a Maranz SR8200 on the word of my dealer. Unfortunately, I started reading the archives of the forum here regarding all the problems of the x200 line. I noticed on my receiver that it has that annoying 1-2 second delay in finding the digital signal. It drives me nuts. I called Marantz about it today and actually got Chow on the phone, the gentleman referenced throughout here. He informed that this is normal operation for the receiver, that the signal must go through a processor first. I've had dirt cheap set ups in the past, like a Boston Accoustics 6000 box set where I never had this problem. Is Marantz being honest in saying this normal operation for this receiver? Do other receivers do it? Should I return this while I still have the chance? I apologize for bring up an old topic, I just want some fresh answers.
