Excerpt: This time last year, we lauded Marantz and its SR6004 AV receiver for maintaining the company’s legacy of high standards in audio performance in an up-to-date package that offered all the bells and whistles you could ask for. The SR6004 sat just below the top of Marantz’s AV receiver line, with an MSRP of $1,249. This year, Marantz offers the SR6005 which also sits just below the top of their AVR line, but with a $999.00 price tag.
