I've been ready to pull the trigger on a new receiver, primarily so that I can introduce Audyssey to my home theater system. Having installed many AVR-4311CIs (with XT32), and many receivers with XT, and thus being aware of the significant difference in sound, I will only buy a receiver with XT32.
The problem is that only the Denon AVR-4520CI has XT32. I don't need a lot of what the 4520 has (much overkill), but something like a 3313CI would be really nice, but of course, it has XT.
Do you know of any near term plans that would put XT32 in a non-flagship Denon or Marantz? Right now, there's no Marantz with XT32, which I find odd, because Marantz has the reputation of being more of an audiophile receiver over Denon.
Chris, by the way, I'm only interested in a Denon or Marantz receiver.
I am not able to talk about future plans from our licensees. They have their own release schedule and would be pretty upset if we started talking about features in new products...
Of course - I wasn't even thinking along those lines. Thanks, anyway.
There are still brand new AVR-4311CIs out there if that would be acceptable to you.
Thanks for the tip, Ken.
