    Using only pre-outs will there be sufficient difference between 8012 and 1070 for mch SACD to justify change, the latter sounds very good.

    Big difference in price and I would seriously hope that the Marantz would outperform the Yamaha in every department including the all important DAC. My personal preference would be for the Marantz as I prefer the way that they sound, although my SA8005 is just stereo SACD. The DAC in the 8005 is really detailed with a terrific soundstage.

    My 5.1 SACD is limited to my Denon X6200 which I very rarely listen to as I prefer the stereo presentation of the Marantz and Rega amp.
