    I thought another difference between the two was where they were made, the 60xx models being made in China and the 70xx series in Japan?

    As far as trading your 5009 in towards a new model, I found this site:

    The last 70xx model made in Japan was the 7007. My 7008 is made in China. Currently, the only Marantz model made in Japan is the AV8802. Even the New AV7703 is made in China. BTW, I forgot to mention that the 7011 has dual HDMI main zone out + Zone 2 HDMI out. The 6011 has one HDMI Main out + Zone 2 HDMI out. In my case I need dual main zone HDMI out because I'm running a projector + LCD TV in main zone.

    Thx guys!

    Any idea if the 6011 allows audio presets?

    Being able to save a custom EQ curve, sub out setting, and compression would be hugely useful. As would being able to A/B old and new Audessey settings.

    Thx

    Doesn't look like it handles presets. But the ipad app might let you switch to dif profiles. Not exactly convenient!

    Any thoughts about the Emotiva XMC-1 instead?

    Thx!

    It's a pre/pro, so you will need an amp as well.
    It's a nice unit...I think I'm getting one in the future.

    Since 2013 all Denon and Marantz receivers allow to save/load settings in your computer via web browser. Just put your receiver IP address in your browser and the receiver menu will pop up. Save and recall settings take a bit more than a min so it's not useful for A/B testing.

    Ahh, I wasn't sure about that. That makes it a bit out of budget.

    Any other all in one receivers worth looking at?

    For that price point I would strongly recommend you check out the latest Anthem and Yamaha.

    The latest Anthem ARC correction is at 96khz resolution now afaik and use 32bit AKM DAC's, doesn't perform any video processing and entry point is restricted in channels.
    The top end Yamaha's use 64-bit DSP chips, YPAO is @ 96kHz resolution, and it uses 32bit Sabre DAC's and can now EQ down to 15.6 Hz just like the other competition.

    Marantz/Denon Audyssey MultEQ XT32 operates @ 48kHz, so higher resolutions are output @ that maximum resolution when using Audyssey. They also incorporate 32bit AKM DACs in their premium models.

    Thx, so what I've realized is that if Audessey is on, I can not use the graphic EQ - it's disabled. But pushing up the high end has a big improvement for me.

    So can I edit the audyssey settings and do the equivalent of tweaking up the high end?
