I like the yamaha's but I am fascinated by the NAD receivers and their modular components.

Unfortunately, I can only get something that Magnolia here carries, as they let me swap a year old unit LOL.
I guess im trying to determine the sound differences between Yammy and Marantz - bright vs. warm, etc.
They don't have the 3070 on display at the one near me, but I know a friend has it w/ zero issues and loves it. Granted, he has much different setup than I do
He has the older version, but I spoke w/ somebody on AVS and he said his 3070 works flawlessly....though he has a different tv.
Somebody on the Marantz thread has the 6012 (one below mine) with the model of Sony, just a year newer..he has no issues. He walked me through his settings and it still didn't work. So, Im wondering if its an issue w/ the 7012 need new firmware? Very bizarre - I know its not defective, as its the second unit I have tried it on AND the Oppo 203 works
man oh man, i love this sound! i have always heard about the benefits of separates, but truly hearing it for the first time is amazing. first thing i turned on was the world series and the announcers just had so much clarity. i'm honestly blown away. i don't even have the powered subs of the ethos turned on, and the bass sounds almost the same. its fascinating to hear the difference - not to say a marantz separate wouldn't have sounded as great, just amzed at the difference.
