After doing a quick review to the specification of the RX-Z7, the only differences I saw was the ability to decode HD audio (True HD, DTS HD, etc.) ...is opt to you to send it back and invest that money in something else; Do you watch BluRay or HD DVD???, you can also get the HD audio through the RX-V2700 but it has to be decoded by the player because the AVR doesn't have the decoders for HD audio :yes:I have this receiver now. Haven't had that long. I wondering if I should tell my husband to send the other one back and I keep the 2700?
We share the same experience here ...I used Sony STR DE897 before I got the RXV2700, but there's no comparison between them.I have always owned Yamaha receivers and there seems to be good reviews on yamaha. I had tried sony one time and didn't like the look nor what it produced.
Polk recommends CSi A6 or A4 for center channel, so I think either one will workI just acquired Polk Audio A7 for fronts and FXi A4 for surrounds. I'm looking at Polk CSi A6 for center and not sure what I'm going to use for my sub. Right now I have a JBL center and a old Klipsch sub. What would you suggest?
