It was a mistake of me to let the Marantz AV8003 escape when I was finished with the review. For the couple of issues that I ran into with it, the benefits were far greater. I'm not making the same mistake as I already paid Marantz and will be keeping the AV7005. The video bench results are the only area that concern me, but Marantz is looking into the issue and I'm hopeful they can find a solution to it. With its combination of features, performance, and price, I think the AV7005 is a fantastic bargain for a processor, and I'm happy to have it as the centerpiece of my home theater system.
