Your opinion please

I'm considering purchasing a new A/V receiver to upgrade from my old one. I'm looking at two machines:

Pioneer Elite VSX-47TX which is THX ultra2 or Marantz 8200 THX surround.

Which would you get and why??

Pioneer makes a good unit. I heard somewhere that Pioneer had a problem with some of their Elite Units. If this is true or not maybe someone can confirm this. I know there was a lot of them on the refirbished market.

I personally have the 8200 and I'm really happy with it. I up graded from the Marantz 5000. I know it was less expensive, and has all the same features except the THX Ultra.

What ever you decide, enjoy the music!
I have a Pioneer 49TX and it is really an awesome unit for home theater.
