Marantz SR7001 review


Marantz throws its considerable weight behind this receiver

Video upscaling ; Best remote control in its class ; Big sound

Poor onscreen display ; No networking connections

The SR7001 is a fantastic, well-specified, good-looking receiver

Marantz SR7001


Despite the refreshed numbering system, the Marantz is a slightly stodgy entrant into a very crowded marketplace. Its lack of features and high price could cause many to pass it over, and for music lovers this would be a shame.

Excellent stereo sound. Tonka-tough build. HDMI version 1.2 and upconversion.

Feature poor for the price. Lacking upscaling to HD. No iPod input. Surround sound is too safe.

Like a lot of other Marantz products, this receiver is ... ahem ... "wired for sound". For an extra thousand pieces of paper, unless music is of utmost importance, there is little to recommend this over the Pioneer.

Marantz SR7001


Even after a price cut at the beginning of this year, Marantz's SR7001 is the most expensive receiver here. But the cost is some way justified by impregnable build quality, advanced features and excellent all-round performance, especially with music....

Quality construction; THX certification; advanced features and connectivity; commanding performance; musically minded

Expensively priced; dull set up; lacks detailed expression 'chickenwire effect

This Marantz mid-range receiver is nothing if not feature-packed. We take a look at the SR7001.

Video upscaling; best remote control in its class; big sound

Poor onscreen display; no networking connections

Marantz SR7001


Marantz' SR7001 AV receiver has all bases covered for those seeking a flexible home cinema powerhouse that isn't likely to be outclassed soon. The seven-channel amp is THX certified, so complies with specialist surround sound performance criteria

Excellent audio circuitry

Menus lacking somewhat in finesse

A great home cinema hub with a high degree of flexibility for simple multi-room installations

Very impressed. Auto set up was easy and alowed for fine tuning later. Movie soundtracks are clean and I hear things I never heard with my other amp.

Solid, powerfull amp with versatility for movies and music

Most commonly used buttons on remote are small and dificult to see

i have this unit in a cinema room inthe house, so it does help make things sound better then perhaps they are, but the unit it very powerful for the 6x4.5 metre room. thebass though perhaps could use more punch. this maybe my sub though, more testing...

excellent sound reproduction for the money. very all purpose, broad plug selection and easy interface looks pretty nice to

not leading edge technology (i.e. HDVD and Blueray)

Product Specifications

Performance addicted? Just call this Marantz your enabler. With THX Select2 certification and 110 watts of continuous power per channel, the SR7001 opens up the home entertainment horizon for the most demanding yet cost-conscious customers out there. Let's look at video capabilities first. You can connect up to four HDMI equipped sources to the SR7001. Direct the one you want to your display and to the SR7001's built-in surround sound processor. Unlike earlier HDMI connections, these handle multi-channel sound with ease. Still enjoying non-HDMI sources? Rest easy. The SR7001 comes complete with format conversion lets you watch older videos through the super-convenient HDMI format. And there's a Second Zone audio/video output, too, so you can enjoy your entertainment throughout your entire home. You'll also find Dolby Virtual Speaker so you can enjoy an immersive surround experience with the dialog clarity inherent in a discrete center channel configuration with just two speakers! And, speaking of clarity, the SR7001 features Audyssey's remarkable Auto Calibration that examines your entire room to corrects for the acoustical problems that sometimes make those other seats just as rewarding as the ones directly in front of your display device's screen. There's an infrared input and two DC trigger outputs so you can coordinate your entire system for convenient remote operation.
