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: 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: Works perfectly. Not oversized, and doesn't really produce too much heat, as compared to some others. But the end result is how it sounds... And it lives up to Marantz's name. Pair this with some good Bi-amp fronts, sub, center and surrounds, and forget that its there.
Summary: I am familiar with Marantz as I had a SR5005 for two years. Great sounding piece but it was missing the modern features that I wanted. I sold the SR5005 and bought a Yamaha RX-V673. It had all the features I wanted but it was such a step down in sound quality that I only kept it for 7 weeks.
Pros: Great looks, great sound, very easy to set up, 3 year warranty
Cons: Price, remote is not backlit, no Audyssey XT32
Summary: The receiver was everything as advertised and more. It was easy to hook up and to calibrate the speakers. You can listen to a different station on zone 2 than zone 1. It can be controlled through Airplay with an Apple or Android device. The on screen information makes setup and changes very easy.
Summary: First of all, no, I didn't buy it on Amazon. My local Marantz dealer gave me a great deal on it. I am familiar with Marantz as I had a SR5005 for two years. Great sounding piece but it was missing the modern features that I wanted. I sold the SR5005 and bought a Yamaha RX-V673.
