Re: Marantz AVR recommendation

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

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.

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).

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).

Do yourself a favor and choose one with Atmos. You'll be happy in the long run.

That said, since both AVRs fit your budget I'd go with the SR5010 for a few reasons:
- more powerful internal amplification;
- a better version of Audyssey (MultEQ XT vs. MultEQ);
- dual HDMI outputs;
- multi-channel pre-inputs and pre-outputs (nice to have, especially if you ever want to add external amplification);
- better components (or a claim thereof, anyway); and
- expandability (more speaker channels, incl. Atmos).

YMMV.
@JBrax I think i will go with your suggestions. Thanks.
@eljay Thanks for your detailed insight. Specially regarding the performance doubt i had.

Both are suitable for my budget & requirement.

The major difference i see is that NR1506 is rated 50W 8ohms 2ch drive & SR5010 is rated 100W 8ohms 2ch drive.

How would the performance change considering the above parameter?

... I am looking at difference between both performance-wise if i upgrade from NR1506 to SR5010.

I completely agree with your point of view. Well i am just confused considering the price difference between the both. Plus i dont want to compromise on the output too.
