    out goes the yammie an replaced with the sweet sounding beast. its all hooked up and running, sounds beautiful as well.
    i noticed a big change in the sound, better soundstage, clearer, more depth in sound, including lower volume. tight deep punchy bass,
    a 100% better overall then what it replaced, the only bad thing? :thumbsup: its to big for the openings in my entertainment center :) so its sitting on top. an now have to go get a tv wall mount for a 42" flat screen lol. 20180410_122342.jpg

    most importantly- no more yamaha for me :rflmao:

    i've discovered something here, im sitting on my couch an realized im listening to a rock station, on surround. something my old reciever would'nt do, radio stations always switched over to 2 channel on the other one.

    Probably just a setting. Most can be set to default to a certain mode.

    The radio probably did on the Yamaha too, it does on mine, with the correct settings. Just have to engage a DSP surround mode.

    the 5150 always switched to stereo mode, unless i was watching a movie, or playing ps3 or youtube through the ps3.
    but its since has been put to pasture in a box, packed up nice. and begining of next month, its going to an aker free of charge.

    Yeah, because that was the default mode set. You could have changed that to some other multichannel mode.

    Now, not that it matters any more but the Marantz doing surround on FM is not a special feature, it's just a setting thing on either one.

    Nothing against the Marantz as I have a real nice sounding SR6300 but what Yamaha were you so unhappy with?I ask because I a m a huge early 2000s AVR Yamaha fan.

    There is a sound difference between the Yamaha (natural sound) and Marantz.

    AVR settings can vary a lot. Some easier and more friendly than others. The ones with 120 page manuals and multi layer menus can be a handful to set up the way you like.

    I’m noticing that some AVR are actually really nice. I get 100s of them all across the 90s to this time. The newest ones I see have way too much going on. Satallite radio and network interfaces and weird specialized connection points to ????

    I do tend to see retired higher end models, and they are not BPC.

    Had one. At my Dad's now. Good surround receiver. Does alot. Good settings OSD.
    I'd sttill take an old Pioneer SX sound over it though for 2 channel.
    Probably build another shelf just to add it to a Marantz AVR.

    i went back to pioneer and for good, a vsx-1017 quite happy with 7.2 surround. with a tap of a button im listening in 2 channel an this pio packs plenty of rock punch for the ears.
