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.
Summary: Just came home from Afghanistan after 9 months. The few times I had access to a computer I was researching receiver's. This one kept coming up and I really wanted to replace my old sony and it has everything! Sound quality is 100% better with the same Martin Logan speakers.
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).
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Pros: Ease of operation and excellent sound quality. Remote control app is excellent. Spotify is a great addition to the apps.
