Hi there Daniel...looks like i am the only person interested so far!. As you may remember i currently have a marantz rc2kii on eval, and find that while it is ok for the 'expert user' (ie the person that setup the AV kit and the remote), other family members/visitors cannot operate the system. My question is how easy is it to program in 2 ways:
1) to replicate the most used buttons on all of the used equipment
2) to create 'task based' macros, which are named 'watch a DVD' or 'play a CD' and will set the correct source, tv settings and amp settings
3) how comfortable/responsive is using the touch screen compared to a traditional button remote.
4) when is it shipping
5) what are the limitations you have found if any? the most glaring i have found on the marantz are the macro system which IMHO is so flawed to be useless.
