The Sony stuff is not to be underestimated. They perform extremely well across the board (yes stereo is fine too) for very little money.
I'm pretty shocked at just how good they are.
Tim Smith, since you compare Marantz 7007, how the sound when playing movies comparing to Arcam ? Is Marantz 7007 sound better ?
I'm also having Arcam 137 and very much happy with the sound, but i need to upgrade to blu ray player and i need good one . I'm thinking about Marantz 7007 .
