Default Re: Replacing receiver ,ideas ,suggestions appreciated

froggie,

I have the Marantz 8001 receiver for review and it is an awesome unit. FWIW Marantz was showing the 8002 and 7002 @ CEDIA this year (no idea of release dates) these had HDMI 1.3. The 7001 is HDMI 1.2 so you can still send 5.1 PCM to it, but it doesn't do the newer audio formats on HD DVD and Blu-ray. I haven't heard the Onkyo but Andrew Robinson loved it.
