Does the Marantz have the nice GUI that the Denon does? That alone makes me want the Denon.

The OSD on the Marantz isn't too bad actually. It's all text based, with no ability to use http of telnet, but that's not huge deal for me. I work with routers and switches all day long so I'm quite happy/content/comfortable with command line interfaces (or rather text based menu's in this case)

Text based gets the job done but the GUI has that factor.

The Denon's GUI (graphic user interface) is overlaid onto the video stream without any interruption or degradation, at all. The Marantz has an OSD (on screen display) which is a seperate screen that comes up, but only after the source video stream is dropped. There is no comparison between the two and it’s not fair to try and do so. Denon has the market cornered on this right now. Yamaha has a GUI as well, but it isn’t as slick as Denon’s.

The Marantz, as I’ve noted earlier in this thread, is lacking channel independent X-over adjustment. That alone is a deal breaker for me. I had a heck of a time calibrating the LFE channel with the SR/8001 because of this.

IS it best to take audessey recordings from random places in the room in addition to listening positions or strictly in listening positions?

It's best to take the measurements in the area where you will be listening, the manual gives a pretty good idea of where to place the mic so you will have optimum sound in any area that you sit rather than focusing on one position.

Any of you folks with this receiver tried the 'compressed audio restoration' feature? If so, what did you think?

I heard about that feature but have not found it in the menu anywhere. I have tons of mp3's so when I get a chance I'll look up how to enable that feature and try it out.

May be a few days though.
