Marantz AV7005 Surround Processor and MM7055 Amplifier

Sound & Vision Magazine
4 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Are you weighed down by a boat anchor of an expensive, powerful, but obsolete A/V receiver that doesn’t have HDMI inputs or processing for the latest lossless audio formats? You’re not alone. Everybody’s been burned by fast-moving technological change. You could unload your boat anchor for a few hundred dollars on eBay or AudiogoN and start over. But should you?

Marantz AV7005 7.1 A/V Processor

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
14 February 2011
  • Summary: It was a mistake of me to let the Marantz AV8003 escape when I was finished with the review. For the couple of issues that I ran into with it, the benefits were far greater. I'm not making the same mistake as I already paid Marantz and will be keeping the AV7005. The video bench results are the only area that concern me, but Marantz is looking into the issue and I'm hopeful they can find a solution to it.

Marantz AV7005 AV Processor/Preamp / MM7055 Power Amplifier Review

Audio Video Revolution
14 November 2010
  • Excerpt: The ability to replicate the movie theater experience in the home would have been a dream just ten years ago. Multi-channel components and large screen televisions and projectors were expensive and heavy. Add to that the fact there was little multi-channel content available. Today along with DVDs and Blu-ray discs all mixed in 7.1, plus High Definition digital cable boxes that allow broadcasters to offer 5.1 surround sound, it is a whole new ballgame.

  • Conclusion: Eine Vor-/End-Kombi mit einer derart umfangreichen und vielfältigen Ausstattung und gleichzeitig so gutem Klang gibt es selten. Dazu stimmt der Preis, und die Technik ist auf dem neuesten Stand. Dieses superbe Leistungspaket ist für die Tester der audiovision ein echtes Highlight. Die kleine Schwäche der Fünfkanal-Endstufe trübt das Bild kaum – aber können sie da nicht doch noch dran drehen, die Entwickler von Marantz?
