Marantz DV7001

 

The DV7001 is a medium-priced high-spec straight DVD player - but note the word 'straight', which in this case applies specifically to the video subsection. Marantz has yet to commit irrevocably to either Blu-ray or HD DVD

An accomplished all-rounder, Improved audio quality

Film soundtracks can sound lightweight

An excellent and affordable disc player that will cope with almost anything round, silver and digitally encoded

Marantz DV7001 review

 

Unlike the lively, 'which is better: CD or vinyl?' debate of the 1980s, there can be no such discussion about DVD and HD. Hi-def is four times sharper, end of discussion. So how can it make sense to spend more money on an inferior format?

Great icture erformance ; Unbeatable for standard-def footage

Seems exensive

Squeeze more out of your DVDs with Marantz's hulk of a player. It'll bootcamp those discs to 1080p. Hup!

The price is steep but if you want to go HD, shelling out for new-format discs of your movie collection could be steeper

The Marantz DV7001 is a well-built, upscaling DVD player which will appeal to music and movie lovers alike.

Superior construction ; Excellent sound and vision ; Faroudja upscaling to 1080p

On the pricey side ; Few extra features on the DV6001 ; Older version of HDMI

Though we heartily enjoyed using this player, there is a substantial price differential between the two Marantz models, and the DV7001 doesn't add quite enough to justify the twofold increase. Having said this, the Marantz is an excellent player in its...

The DV7001 is a great audio player that also happens to do a fine job with video. SmartHouse celebrates its duality.

Excellent CD, SACD, and DVD-A playback; Scaling up to 1080p

Rudimentary GUI; HDMI 1.1 (Not 1.3)

You may well wonder why anyone would pay £600 for a DVD player when you can pick up a high definition HD DVD player for considerably less money. The answer is that the Marantz DV7001 is optimised for DVD playback and will deliver a superior picture

Superb picture quality, Easy-to-use menu system, Great sound

May seem expensive

A brilliant DVD player that justifies its price with a sublime performance with DVD and multi-channel audio sources

Marantz DV7001

 

I auditioned an Oppo 980, a denon 1940ci and a Toshiba hd player.

build quality (get a clue oppo), no grainy pictures (unlike denons 1080p), realiability and 3 year warranty that actually covers the player (unlike toshiba whose player lasted 3 mos, and asked for $60 to repair their unit under the warranty, thanks...

even if the other companies stepped up. Marantz would (I bet anyways) jump ahead of them. They actually care if you are satisfied (30 day auditions). Only negative is lack of real competitors (Marantz seems to be competing with line up)

HDMI Upscaling output only at 60 hz
