Summary: When I was 9, in 1976, I went to USA with my family, and my father bought a receiver and a tape deck marantz, and the brand is in my mind since that time. Now I have my house, and after a a problematic panasonic home theater I decided go back to the winner team.
Summary: I've owned Marantz gear in the past and was very pleased with it. But since the advent of surround sound, I've been reluctant to change out my old 2 channel amp, preamp, etc. A new home prewired for surround sound forced the issue for me to look for a 7.1 receiver.
Summary: WELL, IF YOU'RE READING THIS, THEN YOU AREN'T AN AUDIOPHILE. I WILL SAY THIS: NEITHER AM I. AND UNLESS YOU ARE, YOU'RE GONNA JUST LOVE THIS. IT IS THE LOW-END MARANTZ, HAS LIKE 80 WATTS PER CHANNEL BUT THIS THING HAS MORE BELLS AND WHISTLES THAN A WHOLE FLEET OF TRAINS!
Summary: I actually have the SR4600, the replacement for the SR4500. The only difference is a detachable power cord and HDCD decoding. I use it mainly for stereo classical music reproduction, at which it is impeccable.
Conclusion: Nekem fekete színben pompázik a nappalimban ez a minden tekintetben kiváló erősítő. Házimozihoz használom, és erre tökéletesen megfelel. Kiváló térhangzást nyújt filmeknél. Zenék hallgatása közben sem tudnék rosszat mondani róla, bár lehet, hogy ez Marantz-fanatikusságomnak tudható be.
