Summary: I've always admired Marantz. They make very high quality equipment and this is no exception - that is, except for the receiver part. I don't get very good AM reception with the supplied antenna. FM is OK but not great. Otherwise it handles all my other needs pretty well.
Summary: I've own this receiver for about 2 years, and that period came to an end because it failed. The service light is blinking 8 times a second so that means I'd have to send it off to a Marantz dealer, and it is not covered under warranty. This is quite a disappointment for me from a quality standpoint.
Summary: This receiver together with my JBL speakers are by far the best sound system I have ever heard. It has a second zone feature. The quality is unsurpased. The sound is crispy clear, listening to DTS movies is really a pleasure to listen to.
I Thought My Brain Was Going To Melt, But I Like Marantz Regardless.

Summary: I must confess to all that will hear me, I'm an Onkyo addict. It's been at times a secret addiction for 9 years and with the help of online reviews and family, I'm now recovering. Well not completely. My Onkyo 605 A/V receiver is in the other room.
Summary: I'm a die-hard Denon fan. When I had the chance to pick up this Marantz (Denon sister brand) at a steal of a price I jumped on it. I love the unit. The quality is second to none. The audio is phenomenal.
Summary: My unit worked great until a week ago when all sound was lost. Did the manual-suggested reboot and then lost all video. Problem is with both HDMI outputs. Authorized repair shop in Baltimore told me that this is a common problem for this unit.
