Great AMP remote is a fail.

  • Summary: I will keep this short. The receiver is pretty awesome. The remote control totally sucks or maybe I just got a bad. one. Also the HD tuner could not pick up hardly any channels with a huge external FM antenna.

  • Summary: I recently upgrading my home theater system. Got KEF IQ90 floor stands, KEF IQ60C center, KEF IQ30 surrounds and ps3. I have ordered Marantaz SR 8002 good discount at Amazon. Also ordered Denon 3311 since it got all bells and vigils (more features like networking,usb etc.). Cost almost same after discount. With basic setup and auto tuning by Marantaz. We are blown away by sound quality of music. I did not have subwoofer connected yet. But is sounds great for music.

Opened the box and WOW!

  • Summary: I have just received (my replacement) SR8002 so I will update this review after I've had some time to play with it. However, I wanted to post a review with a couple of real pleasing surprises during my ordering process. My first receiver was poorly shipped by UPS. The box looked as though it had been drop kicked all the way from Indiana to Florida. I immediately contacted Amazon's customer service, who kindly arranged to ship a new receiver, via next-day shipping.

A very good receiver

Edmund R. Cannon, Amazon

  • Summary: Marantz. If you're here, you know them. Long history of extraordinary sound. Good build quality, mid to high price. I was excited after ordering this unit. My prior receiver was a not too old Onkyo TX-SR875. I had no problems with it, but wanted to move up. I have a TIVO, Wii, Apple TV, Sony BDP-S550, and a HD camcorder I sometimes plug in. All except the Apple TV and Wii are connected with HDMI (more on that later).

7-star sound, detracted by strange receiver limitations

  • Summary: After 9 years, it was time to upgrade my former top-of-the-line Sony ES receiver (STR-DA 777ES) to take advantage of improved audio and high-definition video switching. After reading all the professional reviews, I settled on the Marantz SR8002. Three weeks after an extensive configuration and testing, I must say that I am pleased overall with my choice. However, several surprising configuration limitations keep me from giving it a full-on 5-star review.

A solid HDMI choice with great sound, slightly buggy

  • Summary: I purchased my Marantz SR8002 and thought I'd offer my review because Amazon had none. Mine is the 220v Korean version with no satellite radio available here, but everything else is the same. My color is gold, and it's gorgeous. I have owned my unit for 4 days. It sounds quite excellent.
