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: all I can say is stay away. do a search online and follow links to forums of all the people who purchased. i bought mine last week and 70 minutes after install it got it's first POD (pop of death). apparently over 40% of people are having these issues.
Summary: Purchased this receiver on recommendation from a custom home theater dealer/installer. When it works, it sounds fantastic. The bluetooth feature works great with my iPhone. Its great to sit down on the couch with iPhone in hand listen through the receiver.
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: 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: All these reviews of these receivers going bad are TRUE. The same thing happened to me, I've gone through two of these units and finally returned it for a Denon 3310ci. Just because your unit did not go bad does not mean we are liars, all it means you got lucky with a good unit.
