Anyone heard the Marantz SR9200 THX amp yet?

As above question.

Also, any news on the THX Ultra 2 software upgrade for it?

Cheers,

It wasn't bad, but it was missing a few features, like DTS 96/24. hopefully tho' it might be on the Ultra 2 update.

Sound wise 4/5 stars
Build 4/5 stars
features 3/5 stars
Overall 4/5 stars

For an amp that costs nearly £2000 (approx HCC) I wanna see at least two 5/5 stars, both in sound and features. Shame really. It looked a nice amp.

Don't put all your faith in reviews. Probably still worth a listen to see for yourself :).

Hifi Choice said this was AV receiver of the year in it's price bracket. I know who I'd believe... (myself...failing that, Hifi Choice over What Hifi anyday of the month/year/decade)

I'll tell you something chaps. I really do think this amp looks the bee's knee's. I keep going back to the web-site to take a look at it.

They gave the amp 3/5 for features, but it's only missing DTS 96/24 and Ultra 2. Everything else looks to be there. And there's also a THX Ultra 2 software upgrade comming soon.

Also VMax, for £1399 I can take 4/5 for sound. It's gotta be better than my aging Denon AVC-A1.

I'm gonna be looking around for a week or two. I'll keep you posted.

Cheers for the advice :)
