Great sound but for a different type of person...

Curtis Shirley, Amazon
8 May 2013
  • Summary: I've owned this receiver for about 8-9 months now after upgrading from an Onkyo 606 and have come to decide that it's time for us to part ways. It produces great, quality sound but I've found that unless I am working it every day, I find myself forgetting HOW to work it due to it's lack of visible information. I like to listen to both music and watch movies with it.

Good sound, terrible interface

G. Wang "Froggie", Amazon

  • Summary: I got a SR5006 for Christmas. So far, it works well in general. However, the interface is incredibly ugly: 1. the display on the unit is small and useless, therefore, you will need to connect to TV to do anything. 2. in FM radio, the receiver does not support DRS. It picks up less stations than $150 Insignia which is 10 feet away in a different room. 3.

Gets really hot on Stand By.

K Luu, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this for my cinema surround sound set up. Look real nice, very simple control, plenty of HDMI outputs. The only thing that bother me is it gets really hot just being on stand by, not even turn on. I have to un plug the power cord just to keep it cool. Don't know if this is common or is it a problem. I used to own a Marantz receiver back in the 90's and it was really sturdy and heavy compare to this. This is very light weigh, seem cheap.

  • Excerpt: Аппарат оставил странное впечатление своим управлением, и потому расстался с ним без сожаления. Цена, по моему мнению, совершенно не обоснована - слишком завышена.
  • Pros: Хорошо смотрится - толстый и тяжелый. Круглое окно на плате завораживает. Неплохой звук.
  • Cons: Соглашусь с предыдущим оратором - "настройки придумали инквизиторы". Впечатление такое, что сделано все, только бы владелец ими не пользовался. Если влезли в меню, то менее, чем через пол-часа не вылезете.

  • Excerpt: Сейчас не стал бы покупать дороже 15000-16000 рублей
  • Pros: Довольно приличный звук, хорошая мощность, продвинутая система автонастройки, красивый внешний вид
  • Cons: абсолютно неадекватная цена, ничем не лучше пионера 921, в дисплей глядеть с лупой и впритык, удобство использования никакое

Firma Marantz - so geht es nicht!

sjoerns, Amazon
26 October 2011
  • Summary: Ich habe mir lange überlegt ob ich die Zeit und Energie investieren soll und diese Rezension schreiben soll (ist ein Teil eines Schriftverkehrs mit Marantz) schreiben soll; zumindets rudimentär versuche ich zu beschreiben was absolut nicht geht und mir schleierhaft ist und hoffentlich nicht bleiben wird.
