Any thoughts on how a receiver like the Yamaha 7850 would sound compared to the ~10 year old Marantz?
If you like your Marantz, but just need updated tech like HDMI,4K as well as improved dsp and room correction, just get another Marantz 6xxx/7xxx. They are very good quality AVR's and will still have the signature sound you're used to.
