Summary: This is a good piece of gear for the price range. With new Marantz models recently released, this one drops in price but the quality stays. I used to have and highly enjoyed vintage Marantz gear from the 1970s in the past, and those were extremely clear sounding and powerful.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
