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.
Summary: Much better than 5008 from functionality stand point. Great sound. Very easy to set up. Got is as opened box and in perfect shape as promised by Bruce. Crutchfield is great company. Got it to replace my failed onkyo-NR808 which I loved...
Pros: Zone 2 D2A conversions. Great sound. Watching four previews works like a charm! Options feature works great. Speaker Self set up is flawless (but kinda long). I like video enhancements (through options) Internet radio is awesome (compared to my failed onkyo-NR808)
Cons: Awkward switching between enabling zone2 and 7.2 modes. It resets some of the speaker settings when you switch (the height ones are disabled by default). 4 previews IMHO is useless.
Summary: Very good sound quality. Slightly flimsy speaker connections. AirPlay feature is worthless without a wired network connection. I had to purchase an Apple Airport Express to use the airplay feature. Oh, the airport has AirPlay built in! No reason to have it in the receiver! Pros Reasonable price Great sound Flexibility in setup Cons Lack of subwoofer when in direct audio mode No wireless Cheap binding post No sub in direct mode (I know the sub crossover doesn't fit in the...
Summary: So to set the records straight, I am a psuedo- audiophile, meaning I do care for the sound and will spend decent money and effort on sound but I cannot be spending $10,000 on an amplifier or hook up pre-amps, DACs, Bi-amplifiers for my HT. I can tell the difference between a Bose sound quality versus B&W. My set up is B&W CM series front, center, height and Speakercraft on back, surround with Polk Sub and now Marantz SR6008. Not the best setup, but it does the job.
Summary: Ich hatte zuerst einen Marantz 1504 gekauft und war damit eigentlich schon sehr zufrieden und wollte das Gerät behalten. Dann aber sah ich ein quasi unmoralisches Angebot - den 6008 zu einem unschlagbaren Preis, den man auch derzeit nicht mehr findet. Dieses höherwertige Gerät war mir einen Aufpreis von 170 EUR wert. Der Klang ist noch etwas besser als beim schon guten 1504, vor allem bei leisen Passagen ist etwas mehr Fülle zu hören.
