Marantz SR7005 3D Ready 7.1 A/V Networking Receiver First Look

 

The SR7005 is positioned to replace the SR7002 as the second from the top of the line flagship model yet to be announced. The SR7005 (MSRP: $1599) retails for $200 more than the SR7002 but lacks the THX Select2 certification of the latter. The new...

Marantz SR7005 A/V Receiver

 

It's not unusual for a Marantz A/V receiver to have a curved front panel, inspired by the company's high-end two-channel gear. But this one has an unusual twist found in no other AVR models (so far). Between the usual volume and source-select knobs is...

Marantz SR7005 review

 

I confess that I have never really been excited by Marantz's AV receivers. They were never ahead of the features game and always aired too much on the side of sonic caution for my liking. Safe, reliable, solid and about as exciting as endurance snail...

Marantz SR7005 AV receiver

 

Marantz' flagship receiver model has Danny Philips literally bowing down in awe at its power and poise. Is this home cinema at its finest?

The SR7005 is the sort of AV receiver that makes you want to kneel before it and worship. It’s that good. The combination of insightful detail, awesome power and precise, expansive effects placement makes the Marantz a master of its craft and for that...

For the first time in a while, a Marantz receiver has delivered an authentic alternative to the established front-runners

Interesting looks, bomb-proof build; great spec; immersive sound; plenty of drive

Lacks the transparency of the best

Brilliant piece of kit, so well designe1d

 

Got it for a bargain! Blows my old Denon 2808 out of the water. Integrates really well with my Quad 21L speakers too.

Solid, looks, performance

Would be nice to have the audio format on the circular display as well, but that is a minor gripe
