Marantz SR6010 VS SR5010


Novice Member

Could anyone please tell me if these receivers use the same DAC? And are they built the same?
I know there are quite a few differences in Yamaha receivers, like the power amp getting better, with the pricier models. But is this also the case with Marantz?

From what I have read the sr7010 (and denon x4200w) have the newer DAC. The 6010 keeps the same as used previously.

The sr6010 does have xt32 (the upgraded audyssey). You can add a power amp to the sr6010 to provide 7.2 + 2 atmos height speakers whereas the 5010 would provide 5.1 + 2 atmos height speakers.
