Anyone out there have any experience with Marantz receivers?
Aside from some quality issues that I've read about, I like their sound a lot. I'm curious how they are power-wise especially, because although I plan on getting an amp in the future, that's a ways out (monetary concerns), and I want something that will sound reasonably good with my RTi70s in the meantime. (I'm about 50/50 music vs H/T).
So right now I'm kind of between an H/K AVR 525 and the Marantz SR7200. Like the sound on both, but again, I know H/K puts out very high-amp clean power to the speakers, and I don't know if the same can be said about newer Marantz lines, and I don't see much mention of them in these forums, which makes me wary.
And yes, I'd love a Denon (cuz I know 90% of the people around here are Denon fans), but they're a little out of my price range right now, even used. Too many college loans that I gotta start paying off.
So, any opinions on the Marantz vs H/K?
