I need some help in deciding between these 2 units. Specifically the Onkyo 898 or the Marantz 8200. I was leaning toward the 898, but I am very concerned with the audio drop out problems, & ticking problems with Onkyo products. I like the 7.1 capability and the bandwidth capabilities since I would iniatially have to run all of my sources (dish network, vcr & dvd player) through the receiver since my tv does not have enough inputs. The Marantz received a pretty good review in the latest issue of The Perfect Vision. I am mainly interested in home theater results, but will listen to music also. The speakers will be either Klipsch of Definitve Tech in a fairly large room (30' x 15').
