Summary: My Marantz is hard to operate since I owned it. I had a Harmon Kardon AVR30, easy to operate but needed to be updated. So I bought the Marantz...when it works...it has a great sound...but it is hard to figure out. I never got the 7.1 surround sound to work. I know it is not me! I am currently looking for a new receiver.
Summary: I purchased this unit from an Authorized Online Marantz dealer. If you do not buy from an authorized dealer the manufacturer's warranty is void. That was about all I had going for me. Four months after I installed the unit, the red blinking light of death appeared. It is similar to the blue screen of death your computer shows when it has crapped out beyond repair. My unit has failed and there is nothing I can do about it except go for a warranty replacement.
Summary: Have had mine for a year never could get all chanels to work. The remote is hard to use or understand and I very capable and have two other Bose systems which are superior to Marantz.Then reciever and preamp are black with black buttons that do not light up so at night you must have lights on. Over all this system is discontinued by the manufacture because its terrible! !!!
Summary: I bought my SR6006 in July of 2012. When I first ran the speaker set up test (using the included mic), the unit shut down 3/4 of the way through the test...there after, approximately once a week, the unit would shut down after 30 min or less of use. The back left corner on the top of the unit would be incredibly hot to the touch. I was on the road for work quite a bit during this period but finally had time to resolve this troubling situation.
