    Hi all AVForums friends !

    I owned the Marantz SR7000 AV Receiver since mid-2000, and is still happy with it !

    However, I recently found the Yamaha new AV Receiver 657 seems look very good in spec, as well as very good reviews from here :-
    http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/volu...ver-8-2005.html
    and there :-
    http://www.yamaha.com/yec/products/...-V657review.pdf

    Hence, I would like to hear any friend here having real experience with the 657 and your opinion whether I should replace my Marantz with the Yamaha ?

    Note :-
    I will use the AV Receiver mainly for playback movie & music concert; (as for 2 channel music I will use a separate Tube Amp instead) and my speakers consist of KEF Q50 (front), KEF Model 90 (Center), KEF Model 20B (Subwoofer), and Goodman Arena (Rear); and my DVD Player is Philips 963SA.

    i too found getting many opinions difficult on here so i just kept searching and reading previous posts and have now ordered the 657. see my post above about where i bought it from.
    cheapest in uk is pixmania ay £308
    i ordered from germany and got it for £265 and it was shipped the other day

    sorry i cant advise on what you should do but i did find searching the best way

    Also look in the classified forum as one member got 2 by mistake and was selling the second one.

    Its Badger0-0 PM him and see if he still wants to sell it. If he does you both must sell it through the forums to avoid a trading ban, :eek: :lesson:
