Phenomenal buy at the reduced price! Excellent sound.

  • Summary: At the discounted price of $800 this is an extraordinarily good buy if you are looking for the best sound quality in an AVR. I am coming from an older Arcam AVR. Arcam is pretty much the best sound/audio quality you can get but they are not cheap. I had purchased my older Arcam used and now wanted to upgrade to get the latest True HD decoders offered with blu-ray. But the lowest priced Arcam is $1800 and out of my budget.

  • Summary: Have been enjoying this receiver for the last week and I love it. The airplay feature is absolutely awesome. There is also an app to control the receiver which is a nice bonus. The sound quality is terrific. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase.

Nice unit but...

G37x "G37x", Amazon
19 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this from amazon. While I do like its features, mine had a defect, so my review is solely based on that and that is it. The surround right channel had constant noise on it, initially I thought it was something to do with my speaker wiring. However I swapped the wire and still same noise was there. I find this unacceptable for a $1200 AVR. Probably due to The Made In china?? Will not buy this again.

Superb Sound Quality

  • Summary: I have had this unit since last Wednesday and I am very happy with the sound quality. I upgraded from the Marantz SR6003 so that I can get networking. I suggest to go with the setup defaults unless you know exactly what you are doing. For example, I had to switch the speakers to small from large after running Audyssey. The Audyssey setup went very well and was accurate other than the speaker size. Be sure to read the manual (on CD Rom).

Awesome Piece of Tech

  • Summary: So I've been running the 6006 for about a day now and I felt that I should report on my initial findings since I myself like to hear what other people are saying when making such a big purchase.

Astonishing Technology.

  • Summary: I have been running the Marantz SR6006 for about 5 months now, and I am very pleased with my purchase. I am currently running all ELAC speakers FS-247, BS-244 and CC-241. For the sub, I am running an SVS-PB13-ULTRA. For my outside patio in ZONE 2, I am running a couple of KEF Ventura 6. The sound produced from this system is, simply put, incredible. I hear things in music now that I've been listening to for years that I have never heard before.

Excellent receiver!!

  • Summary: This receiver is awesome!! Airplay works great, love Pandora and the Internet radio, you have over 19K radio stations from all over the world, just from the internet. HD radio sounds awesome also. Blu-ray discs sound amazing although I suggest you just use pass-thru on the video if using PS3 or a top rated blu-ray player.

Upgrade from Onkyo

DonSutt, Amazon
17 October 2011
  • Summary: I purchased an Onkyo TX-SR608 last year (along with various DT and Polk speakers) under the idea that I would make upgrades to my system each year. The Onkyo has been having increasing issues where it cuts out briefly (like a reboot) and comes back on. The speakers are doing their job so I decided I would replace the Onkyo with this years upgrade fund. This Marantz receiver has been on my shopping list for sometime.

Most Bang for your Audio Buck!

M. D. Schnur, Amazon
17 October 2011
  • Summary: Marantz is one of those vintage brands in which one can't help but be interested. When I found myself becoming increasingly frustrated with the lack of HDMI inputs on my Yamaha RX-V1600 I started looking for a reasonable replacement without breaking the bank. My needs were simple, great sound, at least 6 HDMI inputs to accommodate all my sources, and it absolutely had to include Airplay for convenience.

impressive for stereo listening

maartene, Amazon
17 October 2011
  • Summary: I've always been a fan of stereo audio reproduction. However, after buying a set of Bowers & Wilking CM8's about 6 months ago, I've started to notice that the room setup and acoustics are equally important as your audio reproduction chain. For me that became manifest when using the CM8's (which is a highly transparent and revealing speaker) in an apartment with all concrete walls and solid floor and ceiling. The sound in my pure stereo system became like a tin can.
