Summary: I was advised by Crutchfield that the Marantz SR7007 would provide sufficient power for the Polk RIiA7 speakers I purchased. I used biamp wiring and still must turn the Marantz to full volume to get sufficient base out put. I'm a little disappointed considering I spent so much money for this rig.
Pros: good looks for the speakers Polk RTiA7- Marantz has plenty of hook ups for accessories but lacks dock port for MPI device
Cons: Marantz SR7007 lacks power to drive Polk RTiA7 speakers
Summary: I have mixed feeling about this receiver,125 watts RMS no way, Sounds about like 75 watts RMS my old Sony str da4300es blows this receiver away in power and clarity.The Sony has about 50% more output then this one and thats rated a 100 watt RMS. As far as video quality pass through that's good.
Cons: Output power, Music clarity is not up to par.
Summary: The Marantz SR7007 receiver is tall and looks elegantly. Its weight is on the light side at 28 lbs. The hook up is straight forward. It is a surprise that the sound is very different from the warm sounding of older Marantz receiver that I was used too. The sound is bright, spacious.
Summary: A little context. I previously had a dedicated 2-channel system only for music, and did not have an especially good system attached to our TV. I purchased the SR7007 to create a single music listening and video watching system.
Summary: Wonderful audio and easy set up. After one year, it started shutting down by itself for no reason. I tried playing the audio extremely low, it would stay running longer but would still shut down. I was playing it so low I could barely hear the tv. Lets see how good the warranty is.
Summary: Over all if you like movies and a full cinema quality sound in you home this is a great unit. It was fairly easy to set up and had plenty of power and the Audyssey Laboratories' MultEQ® auto setup and room calibration system made set up even easier.
Pros: Plenty of power and the 4k video up scaling gives you the ability to view video content on a 4k ultra high definition format even if your cable or satellite carrier does not broadcast in 4k, this unit will upscale you video signals to give you a top notch 4k picture quality.
Cons: For me personally most of my listening is music, I'm not big on movies and all the listening fomats that are associated with home theatre listening. Although the Marantz SR7007 has plenty of clean power and excellent cinema listening settings for me personally I am used to the Yamaha YAPO room op...
Summary: This receiver looks superb and the build quality is awesome. I upgraded from an older Pioneer Elite to this model and I initially thought it sounded just as good if not better. When it comes to audio, I truly thought it sounded much better.
Summary: I have a Denon AVR 2809 and last week it failed completely. Here in Brasil is difficult to get fix it. I was looking for another receiver but I don't understand why there is a LOT OF CONNECTIONS in all great receivers!!!
