I have encountered numerous HDMI problems

Tyson Etheridge, Amazon
17 August 2015
  • Summary: Like most, I have encountered numerous HDMI problems. I have partially associated it to heat. The location of the unit is the same as my prior Sony that never had an issue till lightning ended it's life. I installed a 4" quiet fan to just blow over top, this fixed the problem for the most part.

SR5008 Failed Beyond Repair After Only 8 Months - Beware

Rob L, Amazon
17 March 2015
  • Summary: My Marantz SR5008 started to fail after 8 months of very low usage. Still under warranty, United Radio was UNABLE to repair. It would seem that the quality that Marantz was once known for is no longer the status quo. Marantz fulfilled the warranty by swapping my unit for a Refurbished model.

Great receiver

J. Addario, Amazon
2 March 2015
  • Summary: Purchased this to replace an Onkyo 6 series. I have owned most of the major brands, Denon, Yamaha, HK, Pioneer. First time I hook this up I had bad hum coming from the speakers, replaced and routed all wiring and problem went away, no fault of the receiver. Must be more sensitive than the Onkyo.

  • Summary: Sounds pretty good. Network and AirPlay drops constantly requiring a hard reset. Bought this mainly for this capability so I'm a disappointed. No answers from marantz customer service. Send it back to us at your own cost? No thanks.

Everything a Marantz is supposed to be.

G. Creech, Amazon
1 December 2014
  • Summary: I bought this receiver based on company reputation and the recommendation of an audiophile. I must say the sound is awesome. The many options and tweaks you can do with this piece of equipment is incredible. I love it EXCEPT....I hadn't had it long at all and it began to shut down.

Socaljay, Amazon
21 August 2014
  • Summary: I've had this recover for a month now and love it. I use the marantz app on my IPad mini and iPod along with any laptop I have can just save the IP address of the radio and either turn the radio on/off while watching the backyard tv hooked up to the second zone..

Great basic mid level receiver.

Jim B, Amazon
13 July 2014
  • Summary: It took me a lot of back and forth between this and an Onkyo before I made my decision. The Marantz was my final decision and I couldn't be happier. I grew up in an Onkyo house, owned Onkyo myself, and all of my home theater friends own Onkyo.

The Perfect Receiver For My Life

T. Barnard, Amazon
28 June 2014
  • Summary: I hate audiophiles. They all claim the can hear the minute difference between a $35,000 piece of gear and a $50,000 piece of gear. I personally think that most audiophiles live in a world vastly dominated by placebo effect.
