I know this thread is long, but I thought I would add just a few more relevent comments. As I pointed out under another thread, my calls to Marantz in the US did get me to someone knowledgable enough to know that the LCD vendor was indeed changed a short time before the noew RC5000i came out. That means that even buying an "old" RC5000 may not get you the old, preferred screen. I've had both, and the differences is what prompted my call to them to begin with. The store I got mine from compared two RC5000 and two RC5000i remotes, and the latter's poorer display was consistently noticeable (and disappointing). And as a final note, my old RC5000 with the sharp, preferred LCD does hum (in contrast with an earlier thread that suggested the better displays may not have).
