Summary: I purchase this item 4 yrs ago then it died. Still powers up and i can go through all the programs but now there is no sound. Although this product had a great price point, I got this item because of the Marantz quality. I expected a little more shelf life than 4 years.
Summary: Very quirky machine which died within three years. Took it to repair place who told me they had 3 others just like it that had died of same cause (video board failure). I will not buy another Marantz product ever.
Summary: I purchased this product based off of extended research and the brand name Marantz. After just two years of use this product just stopped working. I used this system simply to power my home theater system. It was never over used nor used beyond its limitations.
Summary: I ordered this receiver about a month ago, and it was mostly functional, but last night, it would not detect any of the sources plugged into it. Today, video is somewhat working again, but is frequently dropping, and audio will work only for a few seconds at a time.
Summary: I purchased a Marantz receiver 2 1/2 years ago Right after having it for a touch over 2 years it dies.I have owned Denon Nikko Tandberg Old Marantz Sansui Kenwood Yamaya Revox and Nakamechi Never once did i have on die on me Esp after a short period of time I called Marantz and told them Marantz...

Summary: i've been a very satisfied customer of marantz in the past, but ive been through two of these units now and they both only gave sound out of one speaker. i've rotated my speakers and each works if plugged into that particular jack, so its not my speakers.
Summary: Have number of problems with Marantz NR1501 unit I purchased: 1. Remote periodically freeze and require power-up/down cycle to unfreeze 2. HDMI output of the receiver are not locking reliably every time I "on" unit. It is annoying to on/off few times receiver and TV unit.
Summary: I bought a Marantz receiver based on reviews and the fact that they market themselves as a "high end" audio company. My slimline receiver worked for about two and a half months and then I came home to fine the standby light flashing and no response to pushing the power button.
