Marantz Rocks!

Patrick, Amazon
29 April 2015
  • Summary: Marantz has my vote for sound quality and I absolutely love the sound this receiver. I had purchased a Pioneer Elite and wasn't happy with it. The features were not intuitive, interface was clumsy and the sound wasn't anything to write home about.

UI is fast, easy, and well designed

Brian McClendon, Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned a Denon 33xx for 6 years and tried buying a Pioneer SC-77 to replace it a few weeks ago. The Pioneer had good sound but a terrible UX and its video HDMI output was broken at 1080p. Rather than replace it, I read about the Denon 4250ci and this Marantz SR7008 and decided to switch.

  • Summary: First and foremost this receiver has phenomenal sound. I waited a couple of months since purchase so that I could have some time to accurately review it and let me say its been a wonderful time.

Far better than I expected - clean, and airy with a great lower end.

Scott M. Bosco "DVD Consultant/Reviewer/Writer", Amazon
20 April 2014
  • Summary: I have had Denon, Axiom, Onkyo, Integra, and Emotiva. I dislike the Denon due what I can describe as a high end cut off causing the sound to be very flat and dull. The Axiom was powerful but... dull. The Emotiva was also exceptionally power and smooth, but lacked deep end.

excellent

  • Summary: Replaced this with Onkyo 807 rec. so far this has been by far the best for sound from all the receivers, simple hook-up. DVD comes with receiver walks you thru. Even receiver walk you thru all setup. Very elegant case
  • Pros: superior in all aspects even for the price.
  • Cons: not any yet.

Excellent!

MattD, Crutchfield
17 February 2014
  • Summary: Replaced an older and very outdated Technics receiver. I'm by no means an audiophile, but I can appreciate and notice a huge difference in the quality of sound coming out of this receiver.
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality. Easy to setup.
  • Cons: Remote could perhaps be a bit simpler/easier to use.... but it's not that bad.

Superb AVR, Excellent Stereo Receive

BDunham, Crutchfield
17 February 2014
  • Summary: After reluctantly deciding to replace my 30-year old Marantz receivers and associated jumble needed to make a home theater system, my main requirements were 1) do "everything" and 2) sound at least as good with stereo music as my old 2285 and 2385. The SR7008 does both.
  • Pros: Excellent sound, has pre-outs for all channels, 9 amps!, dual sub-out, many, many features and superb quality everywhere. Can be set up in an endless number of configurations and zones. Lots of power, no need for external amps unless you use a lot of power, but has the line-level outputs if you d...
  • Cons: Control apps (Android, PC) are mismatched, slow and buggy. Audyssey didn't impress me as much as I'd hoped, and you can't run height/wide/back surround even with external amps. Unit will get warm if you run it hard and while I understand the motivation to be "fanless", I personally would prefer a...

No Complaints here!!

Nate Rzasa, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver to replace my Onkyo TX707 which was working great, no problems, I just wanted to be able to use HDMI audio in my 2nd zones (which the Onkyo could not do). I was going back and forth between the Denon and the Marantz for about a month before I decided on the Marantz.

Marantz SR7008

Tsalt, Crutchfield
26 December 2013
  • Summary: My Marantz SR7008 arrived a few days ago and I am still getting use to all its numerous functions but to date I can add a few thoughts about this unit. I am replacing my prior Marantz SR7500 which served me well but was in need of upgrading.
  • Pros: Awesome sound quality and functionality with abundant power, on-screen menu is easy to follow and takes you through setup quickly and efficiently. If flexibility with adding speakers are what you are looking for this receiver has it all with the ability for placement of 11 speakers and two subwoo...
  • Cons: A lot to learn about capabilities and full functionality of the SR7008 and it can be a bit intimidating but provided manual on CD takes you through all functions or arrangements you might want to try with this receiver.
