Summary: Another one bites the dust! Very sparingly used. One fine day, I turn on the power, I hear a click inside and then nothing happens, no LED, no nothing. I connected it to my power outlet via Monster Powercenter HT800, so power surges should have been taken care of.
Summary: I have owned my SR6004 for nearly two years. After about ten months I experience the "pop of death" where the amp goes into protection mode and will not reset regardless of using all available methods from the manual or tech support. This was a common problem with the SR5004.
Summary: Had a flagship Marantz SR18 back years ago went to protective mode and stays there. I thought issue will be solved by now. Guess what? NO!!! I bought this unit and ended up the same way in less then two months. Customer service tech is no better help then myself. I totally gave up on this brand.
Summary: I purchased a Marantz receiver 2 1/2 years ago Right after having it for a touch over 2 years it dies.I have owned Denon Nikko Tandberg Old Marantz Sansui Kenwood Yamaya Revox and Nakamechi Never once did i have on die on me Esp after a short period of time I called Marantz and told them Marantz...
Summary: This is the second Marantz receiver I have owned and both have died within months of purchase. I was very leery of buying another Marantz receiver, but an endorsement from a local home theater store as well as a glowing review in a home theater magazine convinced me to give Marantz another try.
Summary: BACKGROUND: I wanted an AVR that had superb dual HT & 2 channel abilities without spending an arm an leg. As we all know, AVR's depreciate quickly due to constantly new technologies be introduced & within a few years your HT AVR is middle-aged.

Summary: To start off, for those of you that don't know, Marantz and Denon are sister companies under the same umbrella (D&M) sharing some of the same technology, directly competing against each other. That being said, I own both a Denon 3800 series and the Marantz SR6004.

Summary: This unit and the SR5004 ( ) are to avoid: I bought one in France in November and unfortunately the unit fails as described here: [...] Issue description: the unit switches off randomly approximately 10 times a week. It requires a complex combination of keys to be restarted.
Summary: I've read plenty positive and negative about this receiver. After talking to my local salesperson he convinced me to take the plunge. His input was that "according to Marantz the return rate on this receiver is 0.25%.
