Is someone getting the bug to upgrade?




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Re: Old Denon

Yup, really thinking about an Outlaw 975 or Marantz 5008.... is an upgrade that obvious? HDMI would be nice.

Re: Old Denon

HDMI is nice for the uncompressed audio formats. Any reason you like the Outlaw over what else is available?

No, just really like the clean lines and simplicity of the 975.

Re: Old Denon

True, If I were you I would look into something with Multi EQ XT32.

Re: Old Denon

No Multi EQ XT32 on the Marantz? Never really used any of the room EQ's, tried the Denon 3805 room EQ but didn't care for it. Also still considering the Sherwood/Newcastle R-972.

The 972 is great but the quirks can drive you crazy at times LOL

+1 - I love the sound of the 972 and its ability to work in my open floor plan living room, but the quirks and clunky remote can be troublesome.
