Marantz SR5001 review


An affordable AV Amp with HDMI, lets celebrate

Good up-conversion ; Decent HDMI handling ; Impressive movie sound

Slightly crisp sound ; Complex remote ; No auto set-up

A number of minor flaws can't stop this being an excellent budget AV Amp choice

Marantz SR5001


Marantz' SR5001 sets a high standard for a receiver under £500. Build quality is outstanding for the money and only the lightweight and button-crazy handset give us any cause to grumble. Sacrifices have inevitably been made to keep pricing low.

Good up-conversion, Good HDMI handling, Good movie sound

Slightly crisp sound, Complex remote, No auto set-up

Product Specifications

The features you want. The power you need. The flexibility you've been looking for. The Marantz quality you've been aspiring to. And it can add the incredible variety of XM satellite radio broadcasts to your home entertainment system. All yours in the SR5001 A/V receiver! This Marantz makes the upgrade path easy. You don't have to settle for "commodity-grade" performance any longer. Instead, you'll find advanced HDMI connectors and switching for your favorite A/V sources. Go on, take advantage of HDMI's digital-quality performance and the single-cable connection convenience! For conventional display devices, the SR5001 boasts two component video outputs so you can still enjoy exceptional picture quality. And there's an "upconverter" (or "transcoder") that takes outputs from legacy video sources and improves them for enjoyment on today's monitors. A Lip Synch adjustment makes sure that you hear dialog exactly when your eyes say you should - not with that unnatural delay you can experience with less-capable products. Of course, there's an infrared input and a DC trigger output so you can use the SR5001 in a custom-configured system. And Marantz hasn't forgotten space either. The new, shallow chassis goes almost anywhere. And makes this Marantz even easier to enjoy.
