Summary: the marantz 6006 receiver i have, consistently shuts off when you turn the volume up...as another reviewer noted, this also happens in all the '08 series...be careful before you buy...my marantz is currently in for repair...
Some hidden features that make this even better than I expected

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). There's also a setting in the receiver you should play with. Make sure you check out the web interface on a laptop. The IP may be hard to find, but if you go to your DHCP list on your router, it will be there.
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. Marantz is the best mass-market sounding AVR.

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. Never had the problem with my Onkyo receiver. Why pay good money and buy a high powered high end receiver if it can only handle half of its own power or less.
Summary: I bought me the SR6008 for christmas. I have it hooked up to the definitive technology BP-8060ST(fronts), CS8060HD(center) and the SR-8080BP(surround) and its super loud. the sound is very clear, if you are shopping for a receiver you wont go wrong with this one.
Summary: For the price of the Marantz SR6008 there are many competitors with more features -- more HDMI inputs, built-in wifi and Bluetooth, remotes with more comprehensive controls... But ultimately, the most important feature, at least to me, is audio performance. And it's in audio performance that the SR6008 excels. Not that it's exceptionally loud. I can't really tell that it's any louder than the RCA RT2600 it just replaced.
Summary: I used to have a Yamaha RX-V671. The difference from YPAO (the old version) and Audyssey from heaven to earth. Now hear and detect sounds not heard before, both in music and in movies. Amazing!
Pros: Clarity in sound. Musicality. Easy to set up.
Cons: The display is particularly small. But I'll get used to see the options on TV.
Summary: I had researched a number of AV Receivers that also produced excellent sound for music listening. This product has not dissapointed me. I am extremely impressed with the sound from Internet sources which are usually in compressed audio formats. Very high quality build and reasonably priced for a higher-end product.
Pros: Excellent sound reproduction. Wide variety of input options. Build quality is first rate. Received both excellent customer support from both Crutchfield and Marantaz.
Cons: Can run warm when both Zones are in operation.
Summary: Has ALL the features I wanted. I wanted AirPlay on Zone 2. (First receiver I purchased only output analog on Zone 2.) I purchased a 2nd receiver which did output Airplay in zone 2 but the sound quality was POOR and there was no sound quality adjustment. This ended up being the third receiver and it is incredible. Zone 2 sound is loud, powerful, adjustable and has plenty of bass. Love listening to my iTunes from anywhere in the house and being able to control the music.
Pros: Easy set up. Excellent features. Incredible sound esp. on zone 2. Airplay for zone 2. Simple remote with nice key size.
Summary: Right out of the box as soon as I played some music from my cable tv the receiver sounded good. I could tell immediately I made the right choice spending a little extra and going with the Marantz. Once I tweaked a few things I really haven't felt the need to adjust anything else. The menus are easy to navigate/understand and allow you to adjust tons of parameters. I suggest downloading the manual from Marantz.com to learn everything the SR6008 has to offer.
Pros: Ease of operation and excellent sound quality. Remote control app is excellent. Spotify is a great addition to the apps.
