Summary: I have had many receivers over the years and this one ranks with some of the best in this price range. As many hook-ups as a person could use. Easy to use and set up. I don't really like the tiny display, but it is a Marantz thing. My biggest complaint is no HDMI pass through. So to watch TV in highest def it always has to be on. Plus you can't listen to a cd and watch TV at the same time. That is a dumb move for a receiver I think....
Summary: I have had this receiver for a couple of months now. I may end up taking it back or sending it into Marantz for repairs. I have had many issues with it. First, when using Sirius/XM radio with the built in network function I cannot get all of the stations to play all of the time. Not a huge deal, but somewhat annoying.
Summary: I've had this product for nearly a year now, and it has been great. A few of the drawbacks I have seen are that it is not able to stream DLNA video, which I'm hoping is a standard feature in the coming years, and that the menus are sometimes not intuitive (Why are there separate menus for speakers and sound?
Summary: Replaced an excellent 10 year old Marantz 18 EX receiver. Reason for upgrade was the desire to go 7 channel (eliminating an outboard amp used for second zone with the 18EX), HDMI and add wireless capability. Selected the SR5007 based on dozens of reviews and my favorable experience with Marantz. Unboxing: Upon first receiving the unit I was disappointed by the heft and build compared to the older AVR.
Summary: This was my first foray into a real stereo system. I bough this AV receiver to power my surround sound system that includes Golden Ear SuperSat 50 speakers in the left, right and center front, PSB HD8 subwoofer and in-ceiling rears that came with the house. In addition to the fios box and blue ray I hooked up my mac mini via HDMI. This system sounds amazing!!
Summary: I had this SR5007 about a year ago; it gives me a great sound I ever have when I used with my B&W speakers especially using in multi-stereo channel mode. I bi-amped conected to all 4 speakers It makes a clear and heavy bass sound. I highly recommend this model; you don't need the SR6007 or SR7007. This can gives you enough power to move. I used to use Yamaha, Pioneer elite, and Sony none of them beat this one in all categories.
Summary: After doing quite a bit of research and speaking with several A/V pros, I selected the SR5007 to power my surround sound, multi-room system, and overall I'm very happy with it. It's a little pricier than I'd like, but I can't complain too much with all the features that it has. It's a great design and a significant step up from the 10 year old Onkyo HTIB that I used to use without HDMI switching. It has plenty of input options for almost any user.
