A $1300 piece of Marantz gear is hard to go wrong with :)

the denon avr-3805 and the marantz can be found for around the same price. i'm trying to find that marantz used....
anyone experience the marantz? can anyone refer me to some good HT forums to do some deeper research?

a high end amp with ****** speakers is kinda like a beautiful body kit with a horrendous drivetrain and engine. upgrade what is necessary first, then go with the amplifier.

my receiver crapped out on me. i have speakers for the time being. i need something to hold me over until then.
the speakers i have now are the klipsch quintet II. they are ok for a mini system. these will definitely be upgraded when i can.
i'm also looking at the rotel 1056 pricey but can easily be expanded upon, and maybe the outlaw 1070.
anyone got any opinions on these?
