Summary: Bought the 7055 amp to go with my 7701 pre/pro. Excellent sounding combo. A few months in to my amp purchase it started distorting on some of the channels and then just shut down altogether. I was watching and listening to an F1 race. Can't remember which one.
Summary: The power amp is everything I hoped for. The sound is great and and this unit looks awesome in my stereo cabinet. The tracking information provided during shipment was very helpful and the unit arrived on schedule.
Summary: Nice powered amp. Using to power high frequency with two channels. And low frequency wit the another set. Really cleaned up my sound and furnished improved detail. Don't think I could have gotten the improvement for this reasonable cost.
Pros: Easy to connect
Cons: Documentation unclear
Standby power switching a bit useless and not worth it
Summary: I bought the Marantz MM7055 and the AV7701 as my first foray into separates after only having had receivers in the past. This was intended to be an upgrade from my 16 year old Pioneer Elite 5 channel VSX09TX which was 100 watts/channel X 5 channels.
Summary: Movies' biggest challenge for sound systems seems to be their wide dynamic range. I have owned 75W/ch & 100W/ch systems, and with each step up have found the movie watching experience to be transformed. But no previous systems prepared me for this upgrade.
Pros: Relaxed, plentiful power reserves.
Clean but non-metallic sound.
DLR and RCA connections.
