I am planning on replacing my Marantz SR8200 due to the digital source pauses and dropouts along with some other minor issues. Although, I am a little dissapointed overall with the receiver, I do love the sound of the Maranatz and would like to keep that great sound. Will replacing the receiver with a Marantz MM-9000 5 channel amp sound just as good? My old reveiver (yamaha v-596) did not have any dropouts, so using the marantz amp with my old receiver should give me the Marantz sound without the dropouts/pauses. correct? I would at first be using my old yamaha V-596 as the preamp and (when released) I would consider the Outlaw 950 based on how the reviews are. I would be new to seperates, so please let me know if my line of thought is correct! Thanks!
