My old reciever has died and i need a new one to give me sound as my telly doesnt have speakers attached sigh. I have a pioneer 436XDE(?) and Pioneer speakers (cant remember model). I have been looking at the Onkyo 605 as a replacement but having spoken to two dealers they dont recon that the added features are worth it a and that I would be better going for a Marantz SR5001 instead. Your opinions would be very much appreciated in this matter. Which of these two should I plump for or is there another you could advise on. Are they trying to get rid of an older model by poo-pooing a newer one? Many thanks for your time in this matter, Graeme.
