    You already have them in a store? I'm waiting for the 5300, but it doesn't seem like they are out yet in the US. I'm getting pretty ancy. BTW, where did you get the prices? I might go talk to the dealer again, I WANT! And strangely enough, for like two days, the 5300 was up on the US marantz site, but no longer, and the 5200 isn't up. The web folks over at marantz seem a bit flaky...

    Like an idiot I started a thread without reading this one first - it answered most of my questions. Are you sure the DTS ES is discrete? The salespeople here didn't seem to know. Also, why hasn't the 6300 to 7300 increased in power - in fact hasn't the 6300 gone backwards? (the 6200 had 105 watts if I'm not mistaken) I believe these models have not yet hit the U.S. Also your Toronto prices are a tad more expnsive than here in Vancouver - except for the 7300 which sells for $1500.00 CAN here.

    By the way....

    Does anybody know if the upcoming 8300 will support HDCD decoding (like the 8200?) AFAIK it will be released the next year.

    Yup, there in the stores, I looked at them on the weekend.

    A dealer here in toronto sent me all the info and prices. Those are posted prices. I would suspect you could get between 5-10% off.

    the dealer told me the 300 series wasn't going to be released in the states for another month (now 2 weeks)..go figure...usually its the opposite release times.

    The Marantz 7300 was listed at $1200CAN here in Calgary at A&B Sound. Looks like a front runner in my never ending quest for upgrades.

    Cheers.
