    Sorry for the long title. I am looking to upgrade from my yamaha 1400 to either a Marantz 9300, rx-z9 or b&k ref50-200.7. I am buying a new home with a larger ht room 18x22 and i feel i will need a little more umph! I can get all of these at about the same price. I am running Rocket speakers. Any thoughts?

    heard the rx-z9 with a similar setup like mine-sounds great
    heard the marantz 8300 with a def tech setup-sounded good
    have not heard the b&k setup

    I can't comment on what kind of sound would appeal to your ears but if you are talking about oomph and dynamic headroom the B&K separates would be miles ahead of either of those receivers. B&K, to my ears, sounds very musical, better than either Yamaha or Marantz.

    My 2 cents.
