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 Announces the Flagship SR7005 Receiver

 

You don't get a much cooler looking receiver than the Marantz SR7005.  When the front panel is closed, its full metal chassis has a wonderful minimalist aesthetic with only two ...

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 Receiver Reviewed

 

Marantz is known for quality products and the SR7005 proved to be no exception. Our reviewer was "particularly impressed by how well the SR7005 did with surround sound."Overall, this receiver was considered "another leap forward" and sonically "one of...

Marantz has done a great job with the SR7005 receiver. In each of their latest line revisions they have improved the feature set and the SR7005 is yet another leap forward for them. Sonically it is one of the finest receivers I have had the pleasure...

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

Consumer review by:

Nothing wrong, but fails to impress at its price point.

 

If your a marantz fan im sure you will still love and buy this product. It isnt a bad sounding and featured amp, but there are better value alternatives which will do just as good a job for a 30% cheaper investment.

Looks great, built in japan, updates a good package to the latest standards

Feels quite light and has the plastic / polymer resin front wings which cheapen the design ; Made in japan only seems to inflate the price and nothing else ; Music quality doesnt seem better than yamaha and denon alternatives

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...

Superb detail; a movie lover’s dream amp; great value

External build quality; lack of 9-channel output; absence of THX
