I have narrowed my choices to Elite vsx 35tx, Marantz sr 7000, 8000, 7200(thats it I swear). The Pioneer is 499.00, the 7000 is 549.00 8000 is 799.00 and the 7200 649.00. They are all around 90-100 W. The Elite is the cheaper of the bunch but is that Marantz a much better buy for music and home theater and if so which one of the Marantz would be the better buy. My thinking would be the 7200 but I heard that they have had some problems with that unit.Your input woud be very helpful.
Thanks
Mike

Mike,
I have both the SR7000 and the SR7200. Are you going to be using a rear center if you get the 7200? If you are planning to stick to 5.1 and music is really important, then i would go with the SR8000(although the 7000 is a close second). There hav3e been some problems with the X200 line. My 7200 has some of the problems(s-video noise,hiss). I plan to bring the 7200 for repair soon. The 7000 and 8000 are VERY reliable. Never had a speck of trouble with my 7000. So if you are sticking with 5.1 and like music take the 7000 for the best deal or get the 8000 for the better remote and HDAM's. Good luck.

I have a VSX-26TX and couldn't be happier. I don't think you can go wrong with a Pioneer Elite unit.

p.s.: This advice is worth exactly what you paid for it...
