Summary: Dear Marantz, Last year I bought a digital scale so that I could weigh myself after stepping out of the shower. I paid a little over a hundred bucks for the thing. In addition to weight it shows my body fat %. Oh yeah, it has wi-fi to upload my stats to the net. Hmmmm.... I notice that your top of the line AV receiver that you sell for two thousand dollars in 2014 doesn't have wi-fi? Maybe you should hire the product development guy from that scale company.
Summary: I purchased this receiver to replace an Onkyo TX-NR818 that failed after only 14 months. I bought the Marantz for reliability but had no idea a receiver could sound so much better. The clarity and headroom of the SR7008 defy the specs! Articulate and powerful! I didn't think separate sub EQ would make such a noticeable difference as my Hsu ULS15s are positioned symmetrically but it does. My only complaint is when pushed, this thing gets warm and there is no internal fan.
Summary: Marantz SR7008 is perhaps one of the best in the market with all high-end features & performance with a reasonable price. Just if you care to watch & listen in a perfect manner. I upgraded my system from the old Marantz SR7002 which was also a tough one in its arrival years ago. Now using my KEF speakers & subwoofer, I can listen to the music as good as it gets, and watch movies on my Sony HD projection with perfect clarity.
Summary: I was waiting for a receiver of this quality on this price point for a long time. Marantz did a fantastic job this time adding XT32 and SubEQ HT in this AVR. My system never sounded this good. Bass response is flat in the all listening area and my speakers are very well balanced. I was between this and the Denon AVR-X4000, but I decided towards the SR7008 because its look and the 7.1 ch analog input.
Summary: Efter långt funderande så valde jag Marantz Sr7008. Jag vile ha Audyssey xt32 och nätverk. Dessutom så tilltalade mig designen. Receivern känns gedigen och anslutningar är logiskt placerade på baksidan. Bakom luckan på fronten finns hdmi och usb (även analogt ljud & bild). Installationen går smidigt med en snygg guide som gör det hela väldigt enkelt. När allt är inkopplat så är är det dags för kalibrering.
