Marantz SR5008

Ed, Crutchfield
11 March 2014
  • Summary: Over the years I have built many home sound systems. My last one was a Carver amp and preamp mated to Klipsch Forte 2 speakers. When the amp failed on the right side, I was at a loss at where to turn. Checking different brands on the internet and comparing overall ratings, I picked the Marantz SR5008. The Marantz replaced both the Carver pieces and has brought sound quality back to my Klipsch speakers that I thought I had lost.
  • Pros: GREAT SOUND and easy set-up once you view the CD
  • Cons: The small display, and lack of an old school users manual.

Marantz SR5008 HD Theatre receiver

jon B, Crutchfield
11 March 2014
  • Summary: I have had the unit a month now. Really like the sound. Have run it through its paces and touched every setting. ONLY complaint is the size of the display on the front. A tradeoff from goods looks, to maybe something gawdy. I like it still. Looks like the old Marantz, stately and powerful. I have it interfaced into a 2013 Samsung HDTV with ARC HDMI. All works great. This is one area I was concerned with.
  • Pros: The look. The clean sound. Ipod access from front and Airplay, that works great and fast. The Audessey system. Works great.
  • Cons: Small display in front, so get over it, still is usable. Love the look of it.

Awesome

  • Summary: Went online at first for a 5007 and that was a joke. I should have just bought straight from Crutchfield. Awesome receiver. I haven't hooked it up yet but can't wait to after I move into my house.

Marantz SR5008

Anonymous, Crutchfield

  • Summary: So far I've been very happy with this receiver. I still have some older speakers so I can't say the sound is amazing, but the sound it gets out of those speakers is much better than my old receiver, especially in the low end. I am having some issues with it though: If I leave it on the Media Player (Apple TV) input, I have to remove and reattach the HDMI cable to make it show up again. This happens even if I turn the receiver off.
  • Pros: Great sound, nice visuals.
  • Cons: A bit complicated, small display on the receiver itself, issues with spotify app, issues with leaving Media Player setting and it not working when I come back.

Top Notch Receiver

Christopher M., Crutchfield
4 February 2014
  • Summary: I won't reiterate what others have said about this unit. It's solidly built, sounds great and has more than enough connections for all your AV equipment. Buttons are smooth and are of quality. I would have kept this but switched it for the SR7007 after seeing it was marked down. You can't go wrong with Marantz.

Great Home Theater receiver

BillJr, Crutchfield
4 February 2014
  • Summary: I have owned many different manufacturer's home theater receivers over the years, such as Sony, Onkyo,Pioneer, Denon over the years. I have been partial to Onkyo with the past couple purchases I made, but this time I wanted to try Marantz based on all of the great reviews and things I was hearing. I am not dissapointed! this receiver is high quality, well engineered, and superiour sound to any receiver I had ever owned.
  • Pros: Great build quality, plenty of inputs, fantastic surround sound - and looks great too!
  • Cons: None

Marantz sr5008

Mark, Crutchfield
3 February 2014
  • Summary: Great product. Working great. Basic set-up very easy. Bought this to replace Onkyo tx nr809, which is 2 years old and still in repair shop.
  • Pros: Easy set-up. Really like the source dial, just turn the knob until you see the source you want, don't have to hunt for a button, if you aren't using the remote.
  • Cons: none

Incredible Sound

JoshS, Crutchfield
3 February 2014
  • Summary: I thought I had a good receiver in the Yamaha model that the Marantz replaced but they aren't even comparable. The sound produced by this unit is absolutely beautiful. Crisp highs, soft mids, deep strong lows and all blended and balanced remarkably well. My entertainment is a 50/50 mix of movies and music. I have this connected to Definitive Tech speakers throughout the surround and both music and movies are amazing.
  • Cons: Speaker terminals are a little weak.
