I will be popping in store somewhere to give the Onkyo a listen and would probably be all that I need..
And the missing network port bugs me too.. not so much for having a need for it but, rather, for knowing it exists and I could have one..
That's where I spotted the Marantz, 3750 asking price.. I have looked at the Onkyo s3800 which is the entry level from what I understand, and that looks good too.. added advantage is the inclusion of the speakers..
Makes perfect sense.. to this end, looking at a second hand Marantz nr1504 receiver, which looks good.. would need to get speakers seperate though and that's where I would get lost in what would be best to get..
