Great receiver!

djp616, Amazon
13 March 2013
  • Summary: I was a little skeptical due to the small size and low power. But I am over joyed with this receiver. It might only be 50 watts but it is a clean true 50 watts. I am using this for 5.1 surround and 2 channel music in an 11x17 room with 3 openings to the kitchen, dining room, and hallway.

Good receiver in a small size

  • Summary: I was looking for a low profile receiver and found that there is not much choice other than marantz NR series. When I bought this a couple of months back, amazon had incorrect back panel photo showing two optical inputs. I was disappointed to see it had only one optical input.

The sound blows my socks off!

Tom NeSmith, Amazon

  • Summary: An AV Receiver is about sound first... and other stuff after that. Once the speakers arrived (Mirage Nanosat 5.1 system) and I got it wired up and ran the EQ optimizer... I got my first listen... and was blown away but the openness and space of the sound. Pros: Absolutely fantastic sound.

  • Summary: I am very happy with the receiver, works flawlessly it was worth having chosen Marantz instead Onkyos riddled with defects and complaints. The compact size is more elegant and more pleasing to the eye, although its size is solid and quite heavy, has the connectors needed to connect most important...

Defects Keep on Coming; Not User Friendly

  • Summary: This was my first Marantz. I had always wanted to own one albeit this is an entry level unit, but it was defective out of the box. Fortunately it was fixed under guarantee (3 years, which is great), and now it's working fine except for a few bugs.

Finally...a near perfect mid-line receiver!

  • Summary: I've been shopping around for a DTS-MA and Dolby Digital HD receiver for the past two years. After testing Yamaha, Panasonic, Sony and Pioneer, I picked up the Marantz during the Black Friday 2012 "lightning deals" and it was everything I hoped.

Very Impressive AV Receiver

willece1, Amazon
19 July 2012
  • Summary: I've been traditionally a Yamaha customer when it comes to home theater components. I was looking for something that took less room and had all the latest functions on it, this one definately fit the bill and more. They make it compact hieght wise by stretching it out depth wise.
