Marantz SR7008

LN, Crutchfield
13 September 2015
  • Summary: Easy to set up with the HDMI cables. Unit has 3 built in amplifiers, one for each of the 3 zones. I set mine up with 5:1 in main zone with 2 other stereo zones, and have good sound in all areas, can play different music in any of them at the same time.
  • Pros: The Crutchfield pre-sales and follow up tech departments are outstanding. They are available 24-7 and everyone I spoke to was knowledgeable and clear. I am not a high end listener, but I know what I like, and the Marantz SR7008 serves my needs.
  • Cons: I would like to see the Zone feature on the remote expanded and also, be controlled with IR so that they can be learned by an all in one remote like the Harmony (as is, intuitive easy zone control requires the I-phone & the remote) We older listeners would like to have easier access to the Cent...

As expected until...

Charles R, Crutchfield
27 June 2015
  • Summary: All was well until the receiver keep going into protection mode while powering up. Even without anything connected. Beyond that it performed as expected.
  • Pros: 9.2 channel with amps - Audyssey XT32 (if you're an Audyssey fan) including separate subwoofer EQ - Marantz style - Unique crossover per speaker (pair).
  • Cons: Defective out of the box - See above.

Really good for 11 months. Now power won't turn on.

  • Summary: I love the sound and everything else about this receiver except the fact that after 11 months it won't power on anymore. Now I have to start the process of getting it fixed/replaced. Dang this thing is heavy.

Like it!

Susan, Amazon

  • Summary: I like it! Excellent sound field that is much better that the Denon 2113CI that it replaced for music. A deeper unit which barely fit into my entertainment cabinet. Currently running a 7.1 system with the back 4 speakers in-ceiling.

Excellent Sound

Otto Suarez, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • 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.

Great AV but very poor App UI

Eduardo, Amazon
28 January 2014
  • 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.
