Marantz AV7702 Surround Sound Processor Review

Today, there are more SSP options on the market, but few of them are as up-to-date as the AV7702. Considering the AV7702’s hardware and feature upgrades from the AV7701, I am impressed Marantz managed to keep the price so close to the old AV7701’s.

Most of the sub-$2000 projectors I review require a full calibration to look their best. BenQ’s HT1085ST can ace my benchmark tests by simply switching to its Cinema picture mode. Coupled with a sharp bright picture, this is one impressive display.
