Re: Marantz AVR recommendation

Cool. Now that that's over, I'll sneak in a suggestion that you consider a subwoofer other than the SC4000.

There are lots of excellent Internet-direct options (from SVS, Rythmik, HSU and PSA, to name a few) that will outperform the SC4000 (in terms of both overall output and extension) for roughly the same money (currently $800 at BestBuy and Crutchfield).

The speakers you're looking at are efficient and, therefore, should be easy to drive. You'd likely notice a difference in performance between the receivers only if you were to run your system hard (to very loud volumes).

Buy the receiver that has all the features and connectivity you want and that fits your budget.
No comparison get the 5010 with the flexibility to add Atmos and DTS-X in the future. It has a better quality of Audyssey, more power, more channels. I would not get the other one at all.

+1 for the 5010
+1(at least) for not buying the super cube.
