  1. Hi. The Marantz amps have height and top that can be assigned to ceiling speakers. Not much info in the manual on which does what. I’m after the effect of sound above (helicopters in movies) I have two ceiling speakers behind the listening position, above the rear surrounds, and 2 ceiling speakers in front of the listening position, half way in the room. 5.2.4 set up What will be the best amp assign?
  2. Keep an eye out on eBay. I just got an open box sr7013 for just over $2k. Seemed too good to be true but I rolled the dice and It worked out.
  3. I have managed to pick up a Yamaha DSP-A1 for cheap and it’s seriously impressive for its age. A very capable amp. I have done a side by side test with my Audiolab 6000a and It’s really good. The Audiolab isn’t the best amp on the market, but I like the sound. I am enjoying the extra headroom the DSP-A1 has too. Still on the lookout for a late model Marantz but I have what I need until that comes up. I’m using the Audiolab as a pre for music. I am running optical into the DSP-A1 from the tv for surround sound duties.
  4. Do you have any recommendations of a good performer that I’ll be able to pick up for ~$200 second hand? Ideally it would have an optical in, and I’ll run audio out of the tv to the amp. Cheap and cheerful but it will get me through to next year. Front stage pre outs would be good too, as I’ll drive my fronts through my existing 2ch amp.
  5. I can get a sr5600 for real cheap. Is this worth it as an interim 5.1 system?
  6. The SR7011 I had lined up was a 110V unit with a 240V sticker on the back. I don’t want a transformer adding clutter. Unfortunate. The hunt continues!
  7. I’ve been told that the linked speakers will do for the rears but I want a 20* directional speaker for the mid heights. Any perceivable difference?
  8. I have secured a sr7011. Thank you everybody. Can’t wait to test it out. Next step is to get 4 height speakers to make my system a 5.2.4. What are some good quality height speakers that don’t cost an arm and a leg? I’m going to hold off on the power amp and see if the 7011 has enough grunt to drive 2ch enough.
  9. There’s so much info to take in! I got a pair of B&W 607’s and the htm6 centre yesterday. Really keen to get an amp and get the system up and running. Can I pose a question to the gurus... I was going to go down the path of a ~$2k avr, and then look at the possibilities of a ~$1.5k power amp to use for stereo duties, utilising my existing Audiolab 6000a as a pre for stereo. Will a $3500 avr drive 2 channels (B&W 603) in stereo as well as the dedicated power amp and pre? Is there other options available? Is this a crack pot idea? Sorry for the lack of knowledge on avr’s as I haven’t had much experience with them. edit: The power amp I’m looking at is the March p502 P502 500 Watt Stereo Power Amplifier | March Audio WWW.MARCHAUDIO.NET.AU The P500 stereo power amplifier offers tremendous power output for the most...
  10. Thank you for the heads up Neo. Legend How does the onkyo stack up against the older Marantz that I’m looking for?
  11. Ok no worries. More research needed. Cheers. haven’t seen a 7011 come up anywhere Betty 😩
  12. Is that insinuating that the Marantz isn’t the best option?
  13. After looking at reviews, I think the Marantz sr6014 is a goer. Is the Marantz a quality amp with good features and enough grunt at a reasonable price?
