    any opinions on this?
    I cant believe no one uses Yamaha. I have had zero issues with their gear.
    They have gotten a little silly with their tuners at times but we will live.

    all of their pieces overlay volume with hdmi.

    the new z7 will do it with a 720/1080 source

    anyone know which receiver (dual zone with hdmi upconvert)
    will show volume osd when using an all hdmi set up?
    Marantz does this..

    We have been using Marantz for the the past 3-4 years. Prior to that we were using Boston Acoustics.

    We have only had 1 bad receiver for Marantz in this time period and that was just a week ago with a 5003. There is another thread covering that subject.

    We used Yamaha until last year. I swear once they moved the rxv line into Best Buy they started cost cutting the line to keep margins. None of the "new" models sounded as good as the previous versions and the amps just did not have the punch of the previous generation.

    Moved to Marantz and have been very pleased with the 700x/800x series. Looking forward to hearing the new 5003 to see if the they are more similar to the 7/8 series after this refresh. They have certainly cleaned up the appearance of the 400x/500x with this model change.

    Got tired of Marantz pricing on line so i switched to integra, I like em both, both are all discrete IR'S even in z2 and rs232. and booth are on screen control in HDMI and component. as long as i have Discrete Ir, it doesn't matter....

    Except when the Marantz splash from the DVD shows.

    I'm always right. The only time I was wrong was the time that I thought, that I was wrong.

    As I recall. Onkyo has a 1 year warranty and Integra has 3 years. Plus some of the Integra models aren't "shopped" as easily as Integra.
