Hunting down Marantz NR1604 protocol - ellisr63 - 07-29-2013

IVB Wrote:although, now i'm wondering if the 70wpc is going to be an issue. The SR5008 is $900 vs $650, but is 200wpc. Ugh. Thank god I only do this once every 5-8 years.

Where did you hear that it was 200wpc?
"For optimum sound quality, the SR5008 features identical power amp circuitry for all channels, including discrete power amplifier output stage design. Rated at 100 watts into 8 ohms for each of the 7 channels, the receiver provides high power and wide dynamic range with low distortion for superb surround sound." I got the info here... http://www.amazon.com/electronics/dp/B00CS4X8QE


I thought it was strange that the Marantz is more expensive than the Denon and my 4520 doesn't even do 200 wpc.

yeah I realized that last night, not sure where I read it.

You could always get the least expensive Marantz that has all the features you want and get PREAMP outs... Then buy a Emotiva power 3 or 5 channel power amp to get you up to the power you want. :-)

Well, I need 2 HDMI outputs (plasma & pj). Although I wonder if a splitter is reliable...

how many channels are you looking for for processing... 7.2, 9.2, 11.2? Is single sub ok?

Crutchfield has the Denon AVR2313... 7.2 channels, 2 HDMI outs, 6 HDMI inputs and 4k pass through for $599.99 and free shipping. If you call Craig at AVS he might have it for less or have something even better for the same or less. I believe the 3313 has 3 HDMI outs plus everything else the 2313 has.

interesting link, will have to check that out. 7.1 should work, currently only one sub, was contemplating a second but wife doesn't know that. Plus its on other side from kids bedroom, so that may not fly.

The Denon 4520 has a mode that reduces the effects of the sub travelling through walls... Not sure how it works though. Years ago I ran 4 subs in a room and I just used RCA "Y"s to split it out to more subs. I would setup one and then disconnect it and setup another until I had done them all. When all of them were setup I hooked them all up and set my level... It worked nicely. My new 4520 will actually calibrate 2 subs individually and does 11.2.
