Setting up a Marantz AV8801 Pre/Pro

Recommended Posts

I am currently in the process of setting up a new AV system in the lounge with the following equipment in a 8.2 configuration to start with and see how it goes but I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the Marantz AV8801 and the Audessy Pro32 setup procedure. What were the results you ended up with and did it work out as expected? Still finalizing the wiring installation at the moment as the room is large and has a slab floor above it so the room for running wiring is very limited, installed a couple of access hatches over the week end to aid in this area but still interesting to say the least.


I will post some photos in the next couple of weeks once I have all the mounting furniture back in place and the equipment fully installed and wired ready for setup but if you have any tips it would be appreciated. thank you.
