Summary: This is my first Marantz product and i have to say im a very happy and proud believer in Marantz. I've heard about there reputation for excellent a/v components and outstanding sound quality and believe me they live up to the hype. When i first considered upgrading from my 09 Yamaha i considered Denon and Onkyo because both have stepped up there game in sound quality, features and build.
Summary: outstanding sound quality, video processing and its calibration system makes a huge and excellent difference. The menu is a little bit difficult to deal with, but nothing too complex, the design is classic and beautiful. I totally recomend anyone to buy it, i'm very satisfyed with mine.
Summary: Ordered a Marantz 6005 then returned it because it was a little difficult to set up. Ordered an Onkyo 809 since I already had an Onkyo 606 and was familiar with settings. Found myself missing the sound of the Marantz 6005 so I ordered another one. Now I have BOTH Onkyo 809 and Marantz 6005. Onkyo is 135 watts/channel and Marantz is 110 watts/channel but I cannot tell much difference. Both are excellent receivers but to me the Onkyo is a little easier to use.
Summary: I will start by saying that I'm not a rookie when it comes to home theater. I managed the home theater department at a high end electronics store for 4 years and consider home theater not only something that I greatly enjoy, but also something I consider as a hobby. I am always looking to help my family and friends out when it comes to purchasing and setting up any or all of a home theater system.
Summary: I have had this amp for about a month now, and it is really nice. It replaced a four channel amp that was purchased in the '70's, so it took me a while to figure out what all the buttons and controls were. The included manual was helpful, but somewhat confusing at the same time. It took me quite a while to figure out how to switch from stereo mode to surround sound. Still haven't gotten the iPod connected to it (although it's certainly possible).
Summary: SR6005 is my first Marantz... I had some doubts, but once I heard it... It is love at first sight. I put it together with Polk Audio 2@TSi400 + 2@TSi100 + 1@CS10. The idea was to achieve good sound with "low" investment.... Finally it was about $1300.... And the result: beyond expectations. The receiver has virtually everything you might need: many possible configurations, automatic or manual setup... A couple of details I didn't like a "lot": Main menu GUI...
Summary: The SR6005 maintains the Marantz reputation of truly amazing sound quality, simple user interface, and a gorgeous appearance. This receiver absolutely makes my Mythos towers sing. The balance is incredible and there are no voids in terms of frequencies. I am extremely pleased with this model.
