Yes, the SR7012 did in fact end up at $1K for a while. I clearly recall that. Also the Denon X3500H hit, as I recall, $600 for a while. I haven't seen anything close to those prices in the last year though.I wonder if the price won't drop some more. Apparently, the very similar, slightly older SR7012 dropped all the way down to $1K (less than 50% of MSRP) almost exactly 2 years ago (judging from a quick google).
Here's an interesting review for the SR7012 -- didn't see one for SR7013 from quick google:
Marantz’s SR7012 AVR is a powerhouse 9.2 channel receiver packed with the latest and greatest audio, video, streaming, and smart home technologies that will stand toe-to-toe with the competition.www.audioholics.com
Note particularly the power info, which probably won't be much diff for the SR7013, ie. expect 80-90Wpc (of clean power) w/ 7 or 5 channels driven. So probably plan on using this w/ a decent external amp if you want to go Atmos/DTS:X and loud (probably even w/ Klipsch)...
