Recommended Posts

Been told today I have missed out on first drop.
Don't want to wait another month after waiting nearly 3 months already. Moving up the chain and getting an athem mrx 720 instead :)

You could always go Anthem Dan. There is a business at Singleton that has them in stock.

No it's all good, I'll wait it out and stick with the Marantz, I've had enough AVR's over the last few years to know that the more boutique avr's are always just missing something, yes no doubt they sound great but like yourself being a bit of a tech head I have learnt to stick with the major players in the avr world. I have also discovered and most reviews will back this up there is bugger difference between specialists 2 channel gear and mid to high level avr's with 2 channel music if you play mostly hi res material.

Haven't seen any runout pricing on the 6011 yet. But reading this if there's no stock anyway and the 6012 is delayed then perhaps there wont be any sharp pricing...

Correct, very little chance of getting a 6011, they were hard to get even before 6012 was released. 6012 release keeps on getting put back, I have spoken to a few retailers and even they are frustrated with Marantz. They also give a very limited number to each store so even when they do come in they get sold out quick and then a very long wait for new stock. I paid for a 6012 in full but got so frustrated with it's release being put back all the time I rang the store wanting a refund but they offered me an awesome deal on an Anthem mrx720 which I took and should receive tomorrow.

I sold it after 2 weeks! They are a great unit, bloody fantastic for home theatre stuff but it’s just a personal thing I don’t like the room correction, I don’t like Audyssey room correction either so that’s just my personal preference. I’m a bit weird.

So what did you end up going with then? No Audessey and ARC rules out a few manufacturers.

 

Couldn't you just not use DRC I guess.

Thanks. That brand escaped my research altogether.,,,

 

OK so Integra have their own in brand version of room calibration.

 

So the amped 11.2 options are:

Onkyo - Around 3-4k, in-house calibration solution, simple dynamic volume/night mode

Pioneer - Around 3-4k, in-house calibration solution, simple dynamic volume/night mode

Integra - Around 5k, in-house calibration solution, simple dynamic volume/night mode

Denon - Around 4-5k, Audessey, stepped dynamic volume/night mode

Marantz - Around 5k, Audessey, stepped dynamic volume/night mode

Anthem - Around 5k, in-house calibration solution, Actual Dolby volume plus siumple stepped dynamic volume/night mode

 

Honestly I don't know what to do...

Trust me if i had the funds I would, i think the .6 series is the last great Integra range, they have gone a bit strange with the later models only having 2 in ceiling speakers at most for Atmos ad DTS-x.

Denon 7200wa Made in Japan may be the way to go for that money!!
