Thanks Bucky! Of course, sound is subjective, isn't it, but you did happen to ask specifically about Marantz. I have an SR8002 AVR from them (a few years old) and like it a great deal. Sound-wise, I'd say the Marantz is perhaps smoother and more forgiving, but still very resolute. You should try and listen to them both, with speakers similar to yours if you possibly can.

I am an owner of the T747, and I love the sound and simplicity, but the inability of the unit to maintain lock during silence, and the 1/2 second or so it takes to re-lock, means it often trims the opening notes of songs and video tracks.

Has this been fixed? I would like something simple and powerful, but the T747 has been a disaster for me.

I don't recall a consistent problem with the T757, but most processors or AVRs seem to consistently have at least an intermittent problem with re-locking, be it on a 2 channel PCM or Dolby True HD track. However, in your case, it sounds like this effect is the truly bothersome. I can say that I didn't experience anything that rose to that level with the T757, but by all means, bring some discs to your dealer and check it out for yourself. I would be your defacto tester if I could, but the T757 is already on its way back to the mfg. Good luck!

Hello Fred,

Enjoyed your article very much. Could you please help me with the following: I've owned a Nakamichi Stasis Pa-5 (first version) stereo amplifier (100 x 2) for a pretty long time now, and i'm looking for an upgrade, but id like something that I can use in stereo mode, as I mostly use, and also for a little hometheater. My speakers are Paradigm Studio 20 V5. Would I miss the power of a dedicated 2 channel amp if I go with the NAD? I'd connect the Nak to the NAD and use the NAD as a pre-pro, but i'm gonna have to sell the Nak to be able to afford the NAD.
