Summary: Incredible value for the money! Just follow the setup procedure to the letter and the results will be outstanding. The automatic speaker calibration is right on the money and it made my Energy Classic 5.1 system sound great. The unit is no light weight, literally.
Summary: This receiver works as expected. We are very happy. We are using in 2 channel set-up. Hub integrating Roku, Oppo, Slimdevices, and game systems (no cable TV). Big plus... It doesn't need to be connected to the Internet to work (or serve up ads).
Great product if you want good style and can live with tech that is a couple years old

Summary: So far so good. I decided to replace a good Sony receiver that was about 9 years old and had no HDMI connections. Saw the good reviews on CNET for this Marantz and decided to buy when the price dropped. It was simple to set up, and sounds really good.
Summary: Owned and loved my Marantz 2220 receiver for about 40 years now. Purchased other receivers during that time span including 2 Pioneers, Sansui and a Kenwood. The 2220 was always re-purposed for other duties but ended up coming back into the man cave about 4 years ago and is still used a lot.
Summary: I have had several months to enjoy this product and I do not have anything negative to say. The slim design fits in my Chinese Rosewood TV cabinet and functions along with my Samsung SmartTV UN65H6350 perfectly.
Summary: The wife bought me a Marantz AV receiver for Christmas. It arrived dead. I spoke with their customer service rep to get it replaced. Apparently she bought the present too early - on Christmas day it was outside their 30 day limit for free replacement.
Summary: Great "little" receiver. I first looked to purchase a new receiver because of a confined space I had in my entertainment center above the TV, very nice build in area in the house we bought but not much space/ventilation for the receiver and my HK was getting hot!
Summary: This is a great receiver for the money. I really wanted a high end two channel stereo amplifier but my wife wanted a new surround system for her movies. The Marantz unit was a great compromise.
An excellent no-frills 5.1 receiver that just works

Summary: I bought this receiver to use in a Home Theatre PC setup and it's been a great performer. My previous receiver was an Onkyo TX-SR606, which had a very annoying habit of losing its HDMI connection to the Windows PC after powered off for a while, and not recovering the video signal when powered up...
