The Marantz AV7705 Surround Processor/Pre-Amplifier Giveaway is Here!

Not open for further replies.


This would be an awesome upgrade since I'm already using external amps for my Denon x4400h. I look forward to minimizing the upgrade frenzy overtime a new format comes out. oh and I already love my Marantz Amp 30, I imagine this pre/pro will improve the sound in my HT.


With someone who has only ever had an AVR, I've never had the financial ability to run separates. This would go a long way towards making that a reality and putting my setup into a place where it can be as good as it can.


This would pair well with the Emotiva amp on our 7.2.4 theater room.


Having recently gotten my system out of storage, this would be the perfect upgrade. Fingers crossed


This would be a great upgrade. I’ve wanted to go separated for the better sound and flexibility.


Oh man! Keeping my fingers crossed! Been wanting to upgrade for a while!


Been looking for an upgrade to my repaired aventage rx-a720(lightning damage) for awhile now. I have a few stereo amps that I would like to integrate into my HT system and a processor has been the top of my list. I also like the modularity that a seperates system adds.


I’ve been doing home theater for almost thirty years. I now have a collection of great stereo amps that I would love to integrate into my home theater. The Marantz AV7705 would be an excellent front end.

I prefer the flexibility and sound of pre/pro's over receivers. I've never owned anything made by Marantz so this processor would kill 2 birds with one stone - 1) I'd get to try out something made by Marantz 2) I could replace my 18 year old receiver, my 34 year old pre-amp, or use it for the dedicated home theater I'm in the process of building. Keeping my fingers crossed.


I am moving to a new house and have always wanted to upgrade to separates.


Been looking to go separates for the last 5 years. This would be the perfect way to finally start the new journey for my home theater setup.

Looking to move to separates so that I can get the amp with the power I want.

The Crown XLS 1002 is inexpensive enough to buy a few and start a separates system.

This would be an awesome upgrade to my current surround system!

Arthur Watson

I already have the Amps, would be great to add the Processor.


This would be an awesome way to start our new Atmos system!

Mr. Towerz

This would be great upgrade from my pioneer vsx l301 and a great start to my home theater goal.


I would finally make the jump from AVR's to AVP+Amp if I got this :)
