Marantz SR8001 THX Select2 7.1 A/V Receiver


As much as I enjoyed reviewing the Marantz SR7500 receiver (was it really 18 months ago?), at the time I found myself lusting over the next-in-line receiver, the 8500 ...

Marantz SR8001 7.1-Channel THX Select2 A/V Receiver


Detail oriented readers may have noticed that the TPV Audio and Video labs have taken turns using Marantz's flagship SR9600 A/V receiver to power their respective reference systems. Frankly, we chose the Marantz because it's a great-sounding component...

Marantz SR8001 review


Does doubling up on HDMIs get the job done?

Smooth and powerful ; Capable of high volume and multichannel mayhem

Restrained at low volumes ; No networking ; EQ system hit and miss

Does an awful lot of things right, but it's still best to try before you buy

Second from top of the range Marnatz. The difference between the two in my opinion is marginal. The more expensive one boasts a better power supply which the benefits of which are debatable. I did a vast amount of reaserch before I purchased and in my...

Build quality, power, features and ease of use.

Set aside a weekend to program the remote however it does come with phone-book-sized instructions. If you don't need to set up macros on the remote and fancy things like that, then it is as any other remote.
