Super nice Amp and Receiver by a well know home ...

Blaze, Amazon

  • Summary: Super nice Amp and Receiver by a well know home theater/audio company. I really like the design and elegant look it gives on my AV stand. Amplifier is super heavy at nearly 40 lbs so you know its a high quality powered amp. Comes with a remote cable so both units turn on the same time when powered.

but for most content it is fine, and Roku direct to TV does not do ...

  • Summary: This pre/pro is breathing new life into my speakers. Quite configurable. I am surprised the power has no ground pin. The 12vdc trigger will remain on if any of the 4 zones are on, which was confusing, but the web interface let me turn them all off.

clearly superior from this Marantz

Paul M., Amazon

  • Summary: This Marantz (11.2) replaced an Onkyo (9.2) and I got, of course, the desired two additional channels, though I'm not sure that the two additions mattered (for me, that was the front l/r height channels). What did matter was the sound quality and this was, for me, clearly superior from this Marantz.

Excellent audio performance and overall sound quality...

Enzo M., Amazon
7 July 2014
  • Summary: To start, the room in which I have my home theater/2 channel system set up in is far less than ideal. About 4.5 to 5 feet from my left main speaker is a mostly glass door that has a soft shade/blind that can be pulled up or let down to cover the glass.

Worthy replacement for my aging Lexicon

Busy Executive, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: My last two pre/pro's have been Lexicons - the DC1 and then an MC-8. When my MC-8 started having issues, I thought I'd tough it out and wait for the new Lexicon MC-14, but then I saw the Marantz AV8801 at a high-end shop near me and was blown away.

  • Summary: I have had the Marantz AV 8801 for 1 year. This continues to be provide amazing results. The detail and clarity of the receiver is incredible. There is a noticeable difference in this receiver playing digital music. Previous DAC used was a 24kHz Burr-Brown. Very pleased. Great Airplay reception.
  • Pros: Sound stage, Airplay reception, Iphone app as remote control, mutli room control with iphone
  • Cons: price

Flawless sound

  • Summary: I have looking to upgrade my Rotel RSP1066 after after 10 years. I researched Rotel, Denon and Marantz and by far this AV8801 wins hands down. The Audyssey speaker set up was remarkable in delivering impeccable sound for my home theater 5.1 configuration. I'm ready to step up to 7.1.

As good as it gets!!!

Jerry Sobel, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: Marantz did a great job with this unit. I have owned high end sound processors before that costed a lot more than this and I think isi s as good as any of those. The ease of users superb and it allows you to put an analog signal though it so I can still use my DAC.
