and something happens to the sound when it passes through this Marantz that it gets annoyingly bad in sound quality

Gaston Tello, Amazon

  • Summary: Every aspect of functionality works flawless on this receiver, the slim format is very convenient, at this price you couldn't ask for more. I don't know if other receivers do it, but one thing I miss is the ability to choose different video and audio sources (i.e leave a football match on the...

You will want to buy a voltage regulator........

  • Summary: A good quality receiver for the right price. You will want to buy a voltage regulator. This receiver is extremely sensitive to any noise in the voltage coming into the unit, and will shut down.

  • Summary: Writing this mostly to warn people you really need banana plugs. Technically you can do without but the compact design makes it really difficult. Bought this for the smaller box because my wife bought a new entertainment center that didn't have enclosures for my old one.

Great Movie Sound

Brian Canter, Amazon

  • Summary: This has been a great receiver so far. Very easy to set up and the sound that it produces has been fantastic. The only knock, and this is probably just personal preference and maybe I didn't do it exactly right, is the back speakers over-power the center speaker after I sued the auto set-up.

Compact, Good Surround Sound, Audyssey Not Functional

BKnight, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: Bought this to replace a Yamaha RX-V465, which failed after a few years of use. Using it to power a 5.0 in-ceiling setup with Polk Audio MC60s. I need to turn the volume up a little higher to get the same sound compared to the Yamaha, but there is no audible distortion even at 80 percent.

Easy to Use, Good Quality

A. Soven, Amazon
11 January 2014
  • Summary: Receiver is well-made and easy to use for those bouncing around various "inputs," but for those who remember Marantz from the days of "stereo" with vinyl records, this Marantz cannot be used for vinyl records without a phono preamp.

  • Summary: The receiver works fine but don't expect top of the line functions. However, the price was right and the professional reviews rate this receiver as very good for the entry level consumer.

  • Summary: Not real happy with the instruction manual however. Very confusing and difficult to use. Not laid out very well. I have to wade through page after page every time I need to look up something.

I like everything except headphone circuit

PenName, Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: This is a great unit for a modest home theater. The sound is excellent, ergonomics are wonderful, it's flexible etc. I use it with my media PC in my study, and it's perfect for that. However, I was surprised and disappointed in the headphone circuit/amp. It's got an unacceptable noise level (hiss).

Great sound. Wattage rating belies the real volume available

Dave F, Amazon
13 January 2013
  • Summary: Was looking for a receiver without all the internet technology as I have an Apple TV to provide that. This fit the bill well. Easy to set up thanks to the excellent Audessey Multi EQ. The surrounds really woke up compared to the Onkyo receiver this replaced.
