    Looks like the 6300 comes with the same awful remote as the 6200. My advice for anyone considering these receivers: the remote alone is worth the added cost of the 7x00 (unless you live in Canada, where the 7200 costs 50% more than the 6200).

    I agree with the bass management. Marantz has a ton of folks here sitting on the fence because of that ridiculous 100 Hz crossover. Maybe it's a cost-cutting measure, although I'm not an electrical engineer, so I can't say for sure how much more powerful an amp is when it handles only 100 Hz and above (in SMALL mode) vs. 80 Hz and above, or 60 Hz and above. It's pretty well known on this forum that almost no midprice mass market receiver can hit its specified power rating, with all channels running and set to large. They might be able to with two running, and definitely, if those channels are set to SMALL. So I guess with all those rave reviews, the Marantz SR4200 is proving that it's possible to make an audiophile-friendly receiver that probably only delivers 50 watts per channel.
