    Marantz America announced the introduction of its Model SR8400 A/V Receiver, a leading-edge 7.1-channel home theater receiver featuring advanced Dolby Pro Logic IIx surround processing. The new Model SR8400 completes Marantz' lineup of five high-performance A/V receivers, including its flagship SR9300 and the 7.1-channel Dolby Pro Logic IIx SR7400, as well as the SR6400, SR5400 and SR4400, each offering the industry's most advanced performance and convenience features with total installation flexibility.

    SR8400: Same Outstanding Performance and Features of Marantz's Flagship SR9300
    Marantz' new SR8400 was engineered to deliver extraordinary sound quality and installation flexibility, utilizing many of the same leading-edge technologies and features that have set the company's flagship SR9300 apart from all competitors in the high-end home theater marketplace. Like the SR9300 it features gold-plated connectors and custom components, with a heavy-duty mechanical construction featuring an all-copper chassis and double bottom plate. A Massive Toroidal Transformer provides and astoundingly clean 110watts x 7 power output for authoritative, effortless reproduction of movie soundtracks and music. In addition, the newly developed all Discrete Current Feedback (SA-ready) amplifier design enables the receiver to deliver a minimum of 70 percent of its two-channel power rating when driving five channels simultaneously-a far more robust "real world" specification than competitive models.

    The SR8400 is engineered for superlative sound quality, featuring 192 kHz/24-bit D/A converters on all 7 channels along with the latest Cirrus Logic CS49400 32-bit DSP processor, for maximum resolution, dynamic range and channel separation, and comprehensive bass management facilities with variable Crossover Points (source direct and pure direct).

    Hopefully they've fixed that pesky Cirrus DSP problem! I would be a little pissed if my $2500+ receiver didn't perform flawlessly...

    Yeah, it wouldnt be at all good for the Marantz brand which in the past has always stood for quality...

    I believe the chip has been fixed. In fact ill let you know on Monday, since my new SR5400 will be coming with the new Cirrus set-up. Did you check your PM as i gave you a contact number in the states to talk to Marantz directly about it...
