    All problems (except perhaps for the digital audio dropout issue, which most receivers have) have allegedly been fixed. I plan to re-purchase the 6200 by about March 1st, to give the updated models time to reach the shelves. Some people probably think I'm crazy for not going with another brand, but I'm sold on the Marantz sound. Plus, (provided there are no problems) the price/performance ratio of this model is fantastic.

    As long as you can sleep at night with it plugged in, all power to you.

    I couldn't.

    I have had mine since last June. No problems. I even have mine mated with a B&K 2 channel amp so I can bi-amp my front speakers. I often fall asleep with it on at night. After I heard these reports I have been checking mine frequently and I have not noticed any problems.
