Sony XA5400ES vs Marantz SA8001

I currently have a Marantz SA8001 which is very good. Just wondering what I can expect from Sony XA5400ES if I upgrade. Please provide your comments.
At the least, XLR outputs and 4 more channels (on HDMI).

I absolutely LOVE my Sony XA5400ES. Reliable and has a way with music that just sounds more right than any other digital I've heard:O)
