Marantz SR6008 7.2 Netowrking Home Theater Receiver with AirPlay (Black)
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Happy With this Unit 03/27/2015

This review is from: Marantz SR6008 7.2 Netowrking Home Theater Receiver with AirPlay (Black)

Pros: Audyssey setup was surprisingly impressive. Audio Processing for movies is excellent. Great features such as XM radio, and other streaming services. It recognized music on my NAS, pass through video looks great, and the unit allows you to make picture adjustments. Love the phono input. Pretty easy to operate, and the setup wizard was simple to follow

Cons: Remote pretty basic (I ordered the one that comes with the SR7008 which is a backlit learning remote) you can also download the app to use with your phone or access control via IP address on your PC. No built-in Bluetooth (again ordered the optional RX101 for bluetooth). No wireless network adaptor (guess I could buy one of those external ones or just run a network cable). No status display with Zone-2 out, component monitor out or composite monitor out. To be fair the SR7008 has some of these features, but wasn’t willing to pay the difference.

Other Thoughts: Receiver sounds better with movies than music. Had to do some manual tweaks to get the sound I like, but most of the multi-channel receivers are like that these days. Also you can’t make quick sound adjustments without the video monitor since most of the adjustments are menu driven. Overall I’m happy with my purchase. The features outweigh anything negative. The sound is smooth & not over bearing. Better high frequency response than any of my Yamaha receivers to the ear. The only small concern I have is that this unit runs a little warmer than any of my previous receivers except for the Sony (it got Hot), and I’m only using this as a pre-amp. I installed the unit in the same cabinet with an open back as my past units. Hopefully it won’t be a problem

4 out of 5 eggs Close to the more expensive units 03/24/2015

This review is from: Marantz UD5007 3D Network Universal Disc Player (Black) (Certified Refurbished)

Pros: Great picture, include video adjustments, quality build as the more expensive units, good streaming services. Matches other Marantz equipment.

Cons: No wireless adaptor have to use a network cable.
No Component output

Other Thoughts: May have been too expensive for me if not purchased as a refurb. Cheaper brands are out there with similar features, but you get what you pay for in most cases.
