The SR6014 includes Marantz's Current Feedback Amplifier technology. This was CUT from the 5000 series and makes a HUGE difference in overall sound quality! Well worth the upgrade if you are considering the SR5014 vs the SR6014. Also, the SR6014 includes HDMI for Zone 2 and can take digital audio (via toslink, coax, or HDMI) and output to Zone 2. The SR5014 can not.

Curious what the differences are between the Current Feedback Amplifiers on the 5014 and 6014 are. Both product pages mention having it.

6014: Exclusive components that elevate Marantz sonic signature: Marantz proprietary HDAM circuit boards, Current Feedback circuitry

5014:Features proprietary HDAM circuit boards...Plus, Current Feedback Topology technology, another proprietary Marantz innovation, delivers wide closed-loop bandwidth and very high slew rate for superior fidelity with wideband audio sources.

I read an article somewhere (and no, I can't remember where) that said that the Current Feedback topology was removed from the 5014. Maybe Marantz changed their minds? Or maybe the article I had read was wrong in the 1st place...or maybe my mind is going and I just got my wires crossed!

Can you elaborate on this comment? What is this receiver missing that others in it's price range offer?

I sell these to CI dealers on almost a daily basis...and it has all of the features you would and IP control, with discrete codes, IP control of the HEOS streaming functions, Zone 2 output (with or without HDMI video for Zone 2), and even Monitor 1 and Monitor 2 for installations where you have a projector and a flat panel in the same room! What's missing?

Marantz may well have been respected once upon a time, but they are now just part of a corporate megaconglomerate with a lot of mediocre gear. The measurements of a higher-end Marantz at suggests that these sexy-looking faceplates have inferior innards. C'mon, Sound and Vision, why are you recommending things that you haven't measured?
