I have the 7002, which is an upgrade from a 7500, and I love the sound. Unfortunately the only way to know for sure is to demo the model somewhere. It can be somewhat subjective.

I demoed the SR8002 and DV7001 as I am going to be using it to repalce my Denon DHT550SD for Home Cinema and my Audiolab/Marantz Ki/Kef Reference set up for Hifi.

I have to go for sub sats and 1st tried Kef 5005.2's which sounded great with movies but not so good with music.

I then tried it with Monitor Audio Radius R90's, R225 and RSW12. This was much better and I should get better still by using 3 x R225 at the front and R180's at the rear.

Like the previous person said, speakers are a personal thing but I think you will like the MA's sound with the Marantz.
