RE: Biggest Improvement in HT Sound: Going to Separates

I replaced/upgraded my home theater speakers 3 times with no real improvement in speech intelligibility. It wasn't until I went to separate pre-pro and multi-channel power amplifier that this improved.

I, too, looked at the Anthem AVM60. One nice feature is the large volume setting readout. The Marantz's is too small to see from across the room. I reduce volume at almost every commercial, and during the non-singing parts of The Voice, etc. So increasing the volume back to the original setting is important. The Marantz iPhone app is flaky, frequently losing contact with the pre-pro.
