Sony Str-Dh540 Or Marantz Sr5002

2 posts in this topic

Hello.....

I'm a new member here & I'm putting together my home theater surround system.. I'm very new to this audio world so here is what I'm facing.

I purchased a brand new Sony STR-DH540 from amazon but now I have someone who is offering me a Marantz SR5002 for the same price but of course used.. Which one will serve me better?

My speakers are LR (Klipsch F20) center (Klipsch C20) surround (Klipsch B20) and the sub is Bic F12.

Devices going into the receiver via hdmi (PS3, Apple TV, sony Bluray player)

Thank you for all your input.

Regards,

David

Just looking at a couple of screenshots, the rear of the Marantz says HDMI 1.1  We are on revision HDMI 1.4 so you could lose out on some functionality of the newer HDMI standard.  The Sony is lacking on Inputs. I'd probably take the Sony over the Marantz because of the HDMI issue.
