  1. That sounds pretty good to me in terms of ventilation
  2. Don't mean any offense - yes there are definitely more entry level receivers below them. My argument is they'll probably all sound much the same (within same Brand anyway). By that I mean if you look carefully at the differences (steps up) between each model - in the lower models the differences tend to be features, connections and format support - you'll get a few more watts per channel, but it's not until you reach a certain point that they start targetting more of the audiophile types and you see the selling points are in better audio circuits, DACs, gold plating, power supply circuits, advanced room correction, lower THD, better buffering/jitter handling and other "audio" type improvements that might change the sound in any noticeable way. From what I remember about the Denon range you might start seeing a little bit of that in the 3xxx models and you have to get into the 4xxx models (and flagships above) for most of it. But you might be right, it might start in the 2xxx now, they keep messing around with the lineup. It doesn't really matter what you label them anyway just make sure you're clear on what your requirements are and pick the cheapest one that meets them.... that's just my opinion anyway. I feel with your situation you can get away with a bit because of your speaker setup - ie you're not expecting the receiver to power 7 speakers or floor-standers...
  3. Yeah it's going to have more power available (bigger power supply) to go louder and probably a few more connections. I wouldn't expect it would sound much different quality-wise - they are still entry level type units. Neither have the front pre-outs of the NR1710, something to keep in mind if you ever intend running a power amp / 2ch setup with HT bypass at any time. I find this site really good for comparisons: https://www.zkelectronics.com/compare/denon-avr-x2600h/usa/marantz-nr1710/usa/
  4. The centre speaker is a must for me too. Coming off the back of owning pretty beefy Denon's (4520, X4000, 3808 etc) I've got a couple of the slimline Marantz's now - I had a NR1609 and liked it enough to get a NR1710 when my 4520 packed up. I think they are great. They are easy to live with as they support all the modern formats, fit nicely in my cabinet under the TV and I really like HEOS functionality. In terms of sound quality - I think they are good enough for the price if you're running them for HT rather than music - I run a power amp though because I run full-size front speakers and I really like that these little Marantz have front ch pre-outs where most other things at that price point dont. Probably depends how loud you like to listen to your movies - they should handle a 3.1 setup with bookshelf speakers no problems at all - i think it'll be perfect for you. Just be careful if you have any old component sources the 1710 won't convert these to HDMI from memory (where the 1609 did).
  5. Welcome Gray! Nice to have you on board...

  8. Thanks mate - yeah those spendors should be moving at that price - I have some s8e's and absolutely love them...
  9. Still for sale - is the market just tough at the moment or is there no love for these great little amps for some reason?

  11. GLWTS, wish this had come up a few months back - I've become a big Heos fan, it's solid and easy to use - neither of which can be said for a lot of the streaming solutions I tried before it
