One other feature available on the top-line model is the "Hybrid PLL Jitter Reducer." This is mentioned in the manual, so I contacted Marantz for more information and a friendly rep explained that it operates on all digital inputs and is only available on the SR7007.

Thanks for the review of the Marantz. I have liked their products since the late 1970's, but now is when I can afford them.

I have the SR5005 reciver and it is being used as a preamp. What do you recommend as an upgrade for my preamp functionality, the SR5007 reciever or the AV7005 preamp?

Thanks.

I haven't heard the SR7007 yet, but I've owned the SR6006 now for the past few months. For music, I find that it sounds better and creates a more stable stereo image than some much more expensive two-channel gear I've previously used. Thanks again.

I can't believe Marantz would AGAIN use Audyssey MultiQ XT in a top of the line model. I first used XT in my Onkyo TX-SR805 FIVE YEARS AGO. XT32 is the new standard. My current Marantz AV7005 also has XT - looking at the specs of the new Marantz receivers and preamps, there is NO compelling reason to change, unless I want to pay $3K for the AV8007. Audyssey XT32 is available on Onkyo/Integra receivers and preamps starting at $1100. Why would I pay for a $3000 preamp to get XT32?
I know Audyssey implementation is not the only factor in sound quality, but XT32 is a big jump from plain XT. I would compare it to listening to my old receiver without room correction, to installing my Onkyo 805 with XT.
I'm disappointed that Mark kind of minimized that the SR7007 had only Audyssey MultiQ XT.

Hi guys,
to be more precise here are the infos:

- B&W set Cm8/Cm1/CmC/Asw10cm
- Room 20x16x8 ft or 6x5x2.4m
- Purpose music/movies 50/50
- Volume capacity usage max 50%.

Would this avr cover my needs which are more
quality oriented than quantity i.e. pureness vs. loudness

I almost went for a Yamaha a2010 or a3010, but the reviews and the matching (warm sound)with B&W has really raised my interest for this AVR.
One more thing, would it be out of question to consider the weaker SR6007??

I would really appreciate your feedback as I am stock in this sea of choices. I definately do not want a bi-amp, at least for the time being.

Many thanks in advance
MG

I'd love to have the SR7007 based on Mark's review but my budget only allows the price point of the SR5007. Is the video performance of the SR5007 the same as SR7007? I use an external amp for the front L/C/R channels so amplification is not a concern.

Are you guys planning to review the Denon AVR-3313CI (MSRP $1,200) and/or the Marantz SR-5007 (MSRP $850)? It would be great to be able to compare these two receivers to the SR-7007 and determine if SR-7007 is worth spending the extra money? These three receivers seems to be of similar pedigree. Thanks.

I was going to buy Marantz SR7007 and I'm glad I read it first.

Hi,

Marantz has come a long way since Saul Marantz started building audio products in his Kew Gardens, New York, basement. While Denon has gotten a lot of attention for the latter, including four jam-packed headphone lines, Marantz is also experimenting with new kinds of fun. Marantz has not neglected its longtime status as a maker of great home theater products.
