Marantz, Quarantined, Upgrade...

Okay sometime ago I almost pulled the trigger on a MM8807 and a SR7013, and putting my Pioneer, and Emotiva XPA-3 to bed..

Well now with us being quarantined for the most part I am thinking about pulling the trigger on these, and picking them up from Listen Up today, I would think these would be a nice upgrade from what I have been using, and hey a little fun for me this weekend.. 😃

A little distraction if you will..

    What?! Not one S-video output?! What a piece of carp! I suggest you box them back up and send directly to me! I’ll even help with shipping charges.


    I do like that the AVR has two places to put your dongle! That’ll be nice during this time of lockdown.

    @Toolfan66 You take that back right now! And see if they got an AVR with balanced outs. Do they even make em? I think I saw a Yamaha that had them for the L/R only.

    Tell me no, tell the class what else you have in your setup.

    They have Pre Pro’s with Balanced outs,
  • honestaquarianhonestaquarian Posts: 2,762
    I'm wondering why you didn't just get a pre/pro if you were already getting the amp?
  • Toolfan66Toolfan66 Posts: 14,480

    The expense of the Pre Pro and I would need another AMP as well as more cables, Trust me I wanted to..

    Edit: ok the Pre Pro would have been the same but it still would have cost me more in the end..
  • honestaquarianhonestaquarian Posts: 2,762
    The AV7705 pre/pro is the same price as that receiver.
    However if it was all of the channels of amplification that you needed..............
    Dolby Atmos/DTS X system yes?
  • Toolfan66Toolfan66 Posts: 14,480
    The amp is only 7 channels I need 9..

    An AVR yes, But not a PrePro, that’s why I went with an AVR..

    I am only using 3 channels off my amp now till I get some more IC’s..One step at a time..

    I have been enjoying the SR 8012 I picked up a few weeks ago based on recommendations here. Still trying to figure out all it can do.
