Excellent Sound

Otto Suarez, Amazon

  • Summary: The Good: Let me start by saying that this receiver sounds amazing. The multiple zone feature is exactly what I needed for my home. I have the main zone set up as a 5-1 surround sound, the second zone in my family room and the third in my patio. The system works as promised. Set up was a little complicated with the 3 zones and required some adjustments of settings to make the zone 2 and zone 3 speakers sound good.

Great AV but very poor App UI

Eduardo, Amazon

  • Summary: Has everything I needed and sounds very well. Only thing is they should hugely improve the Android and IOS apps. They are way behind their competitor here. Spotify's user interface is very disappointing as well, there are no Spotify radios and the search function is horrible. Should probably just copy spotify's own app for this. I'm using ethernet but I can imagine people complaining for no wifi capability also.

Overall pleased

Russ, Crutchfield

  • Summary: This was purchased as a replacement for Marantz NR1501 Overall, I am pleased with it. I bought it for Audyssey XT32. It is a improvement over MultEQ. How much is hard to guess. Maybe 30% ?? The new sound modes are quite impressive. I was able to add front wide speakers & that was a noticeable improvement for both music & movies. Marantz has chosen to disable tone controls when using Audyssey. A decision I disagree with.
  • Pros: Sound quality. Audyssey XT32. New sound modes.
  • Cons: Too many buttons on the remote. Selection method for the various sound modes. Value for money spent. No printed manual. No ability to do updates via flash memory & the USB port. Style or appearance. Size, does it really need to be this big?

Bra

  • Summary: Så då har man haft denna i närmare en vecka. Börjar med de negativa som är mjukvaran för den är verkligen fullständigt värdelös, den är så ful och så basic att jag rekommenderar alla att ha en hink bredvid ifall du behöver spy. Alla appar som finns förinstallerade är ett skämt t.ex Spotify tänk dig utforskaren från Windows 95 fast den i 95 är snyggare, de är inte mer än en utforskare och samma gäller för de andra apparna.
