Marantz AV7706 – One of the best Pre-amp Processors currently available

What is a pre-amp processor?

A surround sound preamp/processor is like a home theater receiver without the built-in amplifier section. It does video processing, surround sound decoding, input switching, and audio signal processing.

What are the benefits of an audio system using a separate preamp/processor and amplifier?

This type of setup will give you better sound and more system-building flexibility when compared to a stand-alone receiver.
