Excellent Sound and Great Feature Set at a Price Everyone Can Afford
29 October 2013
Summary: I picked this receiver up about a year ago, lightly used on Craigslist for $400, which I think was a great deal. The receiver serves as the heart of my home theater, and I am very pleased with it. Setting up the receiver with the included Audyssey microphone was a snap, and calibrating it this way makes a huge difference. The level adjustments are nice, but the biggest difference, in my opinion, is the EQ applied.
Pros: Audyssey Setup, 7-channel amplifier, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD MA
Cons: Only 4 HDMI Inputs, Advanced Setup Can Be Confusing
Summary: This receiver looks good, sounds good, and the price was right. The first time I listen to a receiver or amp I play straight 2 channel stereo, because music playback will give you a better feel on how good the receiver performs. The marantz sounds great there is a lot of depth in the music and a very warm sound. This is the best my speakers have sounded in the 8 years that I have owned them.
