I can't believe a new pre/pro came out and I didn't hear about it! I am not really surprised that Marantz made the same switch as Denon into high end separates, the two companies share the same parent company and factories, though the Marantz is a little more stripped down than the Denon, well actually the Denon is so over feature packed, the Marantz is just for a simpler system, and at ~ 1/3 the price! Funny too, both are built into the companies receiver chassis... They don't give enough specs on it to tell all the differences, but 4:2 HDMI is a big weakness, and it is also a little soft on digital inputs, but when you add HDMI it does OK.

Well, add one more to the list....
