Summary: Powerful, musical and transparent as any Marantz is. This is the ultimate for pure audio and passthrough video performance, if you're like me and don't need the latest gimmicky DSP or 5000.3 speaker setups, this comes through bigtime for everythiung from blu ray to SACD and even HDCD and HD radio.
Summary: My first receiver was a Marantz back in 1976. Over the years it served me well. In the early 90's, I bought a JVC, and was quite happy with it, until I collected more upscale components like an LCD-TV, Blu-Ray player, etc. Decided to go for the Marantz again, and found it a bit difficult to set-up.
Summary: This is an incredible piece of equipment.....especially for the price. Some people might be overwhelmed by all the bells and whistles. This unit is very complicated and the manual could be better but figuring it out is part of the fun for me.
Summary: Este receiver tiene todo lo que un aficionado y/o experto pensaria, es un poco dificil de configurar pero al aprenderlo se nota que tiene muchisimas opcioiones y cualidades, el sonido es excelente, se definen perfecto las voces y la potencia que tiene es mas que suficiente para cualquier lugar, el...
Summary: I have been using Marantz tuner and receivers for a long time that is from late 1960s. This is no different from other marantz equipments. This is very powerful unit to drive speakers that built very long time ago.
Summary: If one isn't to concerned about the whole 3-D fad then this receiver is a definite must-buy. The sound quality is amazing, and although it does not up-convert SD signals, I would assume the majority of consumers are phasing out their DVD's and such ,and buying HD material so up-conversion is not...
Summary: I bought from Amazon a month ago - September 2010 for $799. In 3 days I got this item. I am not going into depth in tech. I did not take the 2nd remote. Even in the first remote I didnt setup completely. Did only a basic setup. Hooked Marantz 8002 with cerwin-vega xls 15.
Summary: I've just bought this system, it is just GREAT! Outstanding sound, maybe configuring it is not as easy as I expected, but once you finish the sound quality is awesome, it has many pure sound functions to reduce noise and interference from display and audio processing.
If you are looking for great sound, the SR8002 is hard to beat!

Summary: I purchased an SR8002 a little over two months ago. I am only using the HDMI inputs (HD cable/DVR, Pioneer Elite SACD/DVD player, HTPC bitstream capable, and a PS3) and 5.1 inputs (for SACD). The HDMI out is connected to a Panasonic PT-AE1000U.
Summary: Had this for 2 months and it is better than any other receiver I have owned. Best sound quality compared to an older Yamaha and recent Denon 3808. Music has never sounded better in my home. This receiver seems to have made my speakers disappear and let my room take over.
