If you use as transport most for music go with the 7000 but for most movies go with the 7700. I have owned both and now they're real cheap compare to original price.

I opted for the 7000 and the 1st thing I did was go get a DVD of 'Saving Private Ryan' which is listed as a DTS movie. It played it flawlessly! Any movie I've gotten that has DTS on it has always played on my 7000. For awhile I had it hooked up to an MSB DAC and man, did that sucka sing!!;) I printed out quite a few articles stating that mating the 7000 with a good DAC was an audiophile wet dream (the DAC they used was a Meitner unit but I got great results with the MSB).
