Would this be a worth while move?

    Currently my setup consists of:
    Denon 1801
    Rotel RMB-1066(3x150 powering fronts/centre)
    Paradigm Mini Monitors/CC350/PS1000
    My dillema is wether or not too purchase a Marantz AV560 Pre/Pro(DD/DTS)($450US/$700CDN) to replace my Denon which would complete my move to seperates. Currently my HT is used 100% movies. If I can sell my Denon the move would only cost $100-$150CDN. What do you guys think? One other question: Would it make much difference that the crossover of the Marantz is 100Hz compared to the Denon's 80Hz. My speakers are all set to small.

    I honestly don't think you'd be gaining much since you are using both as preamps.

    Thanks BrentL for you input. I kinda figured that I wouldn't be gaining much from going from the Denon to the Marantz. Both do DD/DTS. What I looking at is the fact that I don't need the Denon except for doing the processing. My AMP can be configured to 5x70 leaving the Marantz to do what it does best.
