Happy With My Purchase

Chuck, Amazon

  • 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: Ive owned the SR5008 and it overheated and shuts down at half volume every time so I upgraded to the SR6008 and it does the same. I contact Marantz support and triple checked everything to no avail. These receivers have a defect.

Some hidden features that make this even better than I expected

J. Goodier, 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).

attractive and nice web controls

Amazon Customer "whherndon", Amazon

  • 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.

Good SQ but needs more power

  • Summary: I wanted Bluetooth capability in my HT receiver so I decided to try this receiver out, and replace my 7 year old Onkyo. I have a Marantz SACD player so I figured why not, try it out.
  • Pros: Good sound quality
  • Cons: amplifier section and complicated set up

Complicated

kelekolio, Crutchfield
13 June 2014
  • Summary: The sound is awesome but the instructions were written for professionals and not the novice. It would help if it was written along the lines of "step 1, step 2, etc". I had to have a friend help me with the setup and contacted the Crutchfield support group many times.
  • Pros: Quality product and quality sound. Very helpful support group.
  • Cons: Complicated set up and vague instructions.

  • 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 AVR

Admiral18, Crutchfield
29 May 2014
  • Summary: This is an excellent receiver. I bought this for my large living room and the sound quality is amazing, even at high volumes. I did a lot of research and picked it over Denon x4000 because of quality of parts used in between Denon and Marantz (its two levels up if not more).
  • Pros: Sound Quality, Looks, Features
  • Cons: None
