    Anyone own this receiver, can you tell me how it is. This may be a stupid question, but does it have 5/6 channel stereo and a powered zone 2 out? Also, if you do have one, where did you buy it from, and for how much? Also, is it possible to get it in the silver finish?

    I don't have one, but I'm very interested in them myself.
    I personally don't want a powered ZONE 2 and also, the 787 does not have DPL II.
    I know they DO NOT have powered ZONE 2. Zone 2 is a pre-out on the 797. The 787 had powered ZONE 2. I don't know about 5 and 6 channel stereo. Check out the Onkyousa website:

    Chris,
    I know you have a Marantz (I had the 7200), and were having some problems with it(from reading the 7200 thread). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the 797. I am glad i got it [​IMG]
