Summary: I got a great deal on this receiver, and the quality and operation is just what you'd expect with a Marantz product. My next receiver will probably be another Marantz. This is where it's at for this price range and even a bit above.
Horrible warranty support. Two HDMI inputs burnt out.
26 May 2010
Summary: Two of my HDMI inputs burnt out within one month of ownership. I called to have it replaced under warranty, and they do not offer this. You must send the unit off at your cost, out of state, to one of several Joe Schmoe electronics repair stores which can take two to four weeks. In the mean time, how the heck are you supposed to power your media system? This may be a great product, but beware, if anything goes wrong you have no receiver for a month.
Summary: Setup the Marantz SR6003 receiver today and wow is it beautiful! The facia is very clean and modern looking and makes my Cambridge Soundworks surround system a winner. The sound is clear and crisp. I would definetely reccomend the Sr6003.
Summary: Glad I ponied up the cash for this receiver. I researched quite a few and this one got some really good reviews from the experts. Was easy to set up and looks and sounds great. The remote is nice too. I have all my audio and video equipment running through the Marantz and there is no negative effect on video signal at all. Plenty of inputs for me, although that is the only complaint that any of the pro reviewers had on this receiver. 3 hdmi inputs. 2 hdmi outs.
Summary: I have used this receiver for two months now, and I love it! It has great sound quality, and plenty of power for my Aperion Audio Intimus 4T Grand speakers. With my new set up, it's like watching all of my favorite movies for the first time. The Marantz SR6003 also brings out a lot of new detail from my music. So far I only have one complaint, the remote control. The remote itself has a great look and feel, but the Source button too closely resembles the Volume button.
Summary: I did alot of research before deciding to purchase this Marantz SR6003. More than satisfied. The sound quality for radio, cd's & home theater is awesome. I replaced a 12 year old Yamaha AVR that sounded great but this blows it away. The $[...] price seems like a steal. I received the unit within a few days with no snags. Love it............
Excellent receiver at this pricepoint. Highly recommended.

Summary: I'm an audiofile used to seperates. I have proceed 250 watt amps and an integra 9.8 processor. Together new they are valued at $10,000 for the amps and $2000 for the processor. Since I moved and rented my house, I needed to replace my expensive gear in the theatre with more reasonably priced gear for the rental. I replaced a $14,000 7.1 speaker set-up with a $4,500 speaker set-up. Last thing I needed to replace was the electronics.
Summary: Easy to set up. Sound and video is excellent. The sound quality is very clean and neutral reproducing live music very naturally. The included microphone made speaker setup a breeze. The video quality is the best I have personally ever seen. My cable does not pix-elate any more. Everything is crisper and brighter than before. It is running a 52" Mitsubishi DLP. For speakers I have Aperion 6T towers, 6C center, 5B rears and the bravias 10D sup.
Summary: My husband just updated his entertainment system with the intra-red technology and needed to get a new receiver to make everything work. Did a ton of research for about 3 months and really loved this model. He is very pleased with his decision. We are still working out the kinks with the intra-red, but the receiver is everything he wanted it to be and the entertainment system sounds awesome!
