what do the ci's think? i love marantz especially 5000 series.....recently been using yammys 665,765, and now my 1st 1065 which i think is a bit pricey for everyday use. And im not wild about selling something u find in a store or online? Opinions?

I use Marantz almost exclusively except when I need a budget solution in which case I'll use an Onkyo 607, not a huge fan of Yamaha.

one of the main reasons i choose yammy is for the ipod integration. one being video on tv.......and most importantly, NO XTRA PS to stick thru a cabinet!

Marantz always tends to be a bit low on the "extra features and frills" side, but I've always appreciated how predictably they operate and, most importantly, how fantastic they sound.

wl I luv txt splng in texts, they often don't work too well when you've got a full sized keyboard and a big white space for the letters to go into.

I do Yamaha, but I'm mystified: What's a PS? Are you saying Marantzes have power supplies that you have to stick through a cabinet?
We can't give you a good answer, or maybe any, without the make and model of everything.

Maybe another power supply for a separate iPod dock?

yes power supplies! most docks ive used over the last few yrs have had power supplies, and or an extra wiring harness, or its just 2 pieces. one of the things i like about yamaha is their ipod. just a sysem cable..powers off the receiver. just one simple little dock.

although i do miss the marantz in general, what a beautiful piece of machinery, its nice that they give you 3 component video ins as well

I tend to prefer Marantz over Yamaha. The 1501, 5004, and 6004 get used daily with us. I'm ready for them to revamp the 7 and 8 series since my next step up from 6004 is a $2k Rotel.

I'd really like another 9 series as well. My 9600 is getting a bit long in the tooth with HD audio formats.

i also kinda lean toward the yammy having a lil more control w the zone 2. but ive only done 2 zone 2 jobs w marantz. i think the code sets are WAY better w/ marantz tho, control is much better
