If you really want the 11 channels of amplification then I guess that 6300 is the best pick. The later model (6400) doesn't really have a lot of extra features so you aren't missing much there. It's also made in Japan, some people are fussed about that - I guess they don't like chinese build quality much 

As to the weight differences, no idea. I don't think Denon/Marantz have heavy chassis' (except one of the newest models apparently does) so it could be that or maybe it's the transformer in the thing.

If you want to go down to a 9 channel amplification model there are more to choose from, also all of them still do 11.2 processing which means you can add a cheap 2 channel amplifier to power the extra 2 speakers making 11 channels total. I think you can get those sorts of amps for under $100 over in the USA where you are so it could even be more economical. All pre-2018 model Denon/Marantz models have 11 channels processing (I am talking the better models here like you are looking at, not the cheaper ones). This year they are bringing out models that do 13 channel processing (even a model with 13 on-board amplifiers).

Pretty sure the 7011 has Audyssey XT32 and 2 subwoofer outputs. Audyssey XT32 does equalize both subwoofer outputs - it's not like a splitter. When you run the setup it will do each subwoofer separately and tell you what to do with the volume etc. Once it has mixed both then in the rest of the Audyssey run it treats them as one unit.

I still use my SR7009 which does 7.2.4 - 7011 obviously newer and more features for 4K stuff.

This thread will most probably tell you more then you actually want to know :-)

Is not a bad idea sometimes to get last years model ie: Marantz AV7703 You're saving 30% on the AV7704 price and there isn't a lot of difference. There's also the Marantz SR7011 (also last years model) on Amazon for similar price and that has 9 builtin amps (just buy a cheap $100 2 channel power amp if you want 7.2.4 - 7011 has all the pre-outs)

..and make a couple of images.

The tough bit is the Media Type for 4k UHD, I tried editing the MediaTypes in the globalinits.php and messed it up completely :-)

So now I have a custom media type in DvdProfiler called 4k and phpdvdprofiler picks up custom media types once you add a definition for it in siteconfig.php

Thanks for your reply Merrik. I am of the same mind, doubt that following this up with Invelos support will do anything so I guess I'll do the same thing and just contribute it via the disc id.

I purchased The Who Tommy Live at the Royal Albert Hall on blu-ray from Amazon USA as per here

Now when I go to contribute this I get this error: "Please check that the UPC and locality are correct. These can be changed via DVD->Change UPC."

Ok, the upc doesn't look exactly right for USA 5-051300-533977 but if you look on that Amazon page link above you will see that they also have the back cover of this blu-ray and the UPC is shown on that scan. Btw, the back page also says "Made in USA" but you may not be able to see that on the Amazon image.

So what do I do? It's a USA copy with a UPC, but the contribution db won';t accept it.
