Happy With My Purchase

  • Summary: I’ve owned many receivers in my 55 yrs. such as Kenwood, Pioneer, Yamaha RX-V series, Sony, & Outlaw. This is my first Marantz product of any kind. I use this unit as a pre-amp for now with an Outlaw 7-channel power amp. The Good: Audyssey setup was surprisingly impressive.

  • Summary: Disappointed with speaker binding posts. The brand and price warrants higher quality parts. I will choose more wisely next time.

  • Summary: All the Marantz SR line SR5008, SR6008, SR7008 have a defect where they shut down if you want to crank it up a little bit for a short time. If you turn them to half volume or more for more than a few minutes they shut down . I have owned both the SR5008 and SR6008 and both have this problem.

Great quality, but on piece of functionality missing

  • Summary: Sounds great and the picture quality is excellent. I set up my 5.1 configuration in living room under the Main Zone, and the outside speakers under Zone 2, which has its own source separate from the Main Zone - that works fine.

Overpriced And Feels Cheap

Michael Collins, Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: It just feels like Marantz cut a lot of corners with this receiver. You would swear it's a $300 receiver when you feel the heft, very lightweight and cheap feeling. Also, the remote is pathetic, it's like a throwaway remote you would get with a $35 DVD player. Not befitting a $1,200 receiver.

attractive and nice web controls

  • Summary: Fantastic-sounding receiver. Sturdily built, attractive and nice web controls. Lots of features that take a bit to absorb, but worth it. Better sounding than any AVR in its price range. A bit warmer and more precise than sister brand Denon, a favorite of mine, with a little more punch, too.

Some hidden features that make this even better than I expected

Jesse G., Amazon

  • Summary: Here's a few reasons to get this receiver that aren't clear in other reviews- Allows you to do HDMI to analog zone 2. This is somewhat hard to find on other receivers. If it doesn't work for you, switch to PCM decoding on your cable box (in the advanced menu).
