Summary: I returned this item after a day. The HDMI handshakes failed repeatedly leaving it impossible to run video or audio at times through the Marantz to the TV or speakers. Replaced this unit with an equivalent Yamaha and it worked the first time with the same equipment. Marantz support was of no help in correcting the problem.
Excerpt: Received the SR7005 on THURs. did the hook up and setup and tested, all was well until i saw a firmware update on FRI. I performed the update and crash. Did a full reset and nothing. The SR7005 just keeps tring to update on a five minute cycle, now its unplugged. I have a call into marantz and hoping that they have a solution. If not i hope vanns will exchange the unit and front the shipping or something. Not even a full day of operation.
Excerpt: Bought this last September 2011. Great sound & video, but then I lost both. Tried all the troubleshooting tips on the Marantz site to no avail. Now Im stuck with a $1600.00 paperweight until Marantz fixes it.
