Review of the SR6008 from Trusted Reviews (1/24/2014)

Whichever way you slice it, the SR6008 is a fantastic AV receiver that ticks all the boxes. It's easy on the eye, jam-packed with features, remarkably easy to use andoffers a potent, detailed and refined sound. - Danny Phillips

Review of the PM6005 and CD6005 from Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity (1/24/2014)

If you are in the market for components of this type under $1,000, the Marantz PM6005 Integrated Amplifier and CD6005 CD Player should be on your short list. - Don Disbennett

HomeTheater.com review on the Marantz AV8801 Surround Processor & MM8077 Amplifier (2/20/2013)

Musically, the AV8801 is extremely transparent and invites you into the audio presentation with a front-row seat....I can say the same for other recordings I listened to through the Marantz—they just sounded better than I had ever heard before." - David Vaughn

Popular Mechanics Review of the AV8801 (1/24/13)

If you do decide to go with a 4K television, this AV receiver will help. The AV8801 up-converts an HD signal to 4K, improving the pixel resolution and making the game look much crisper. The 530- to 1710-kHz frequency range is wide enough to support reference speakers and astound everyone in the room. But the big perk here is the 11.2-channel surround sound. You can have two subwoofers—maybe one up front by the television and one in the back of the room—and 11 surround-sound speakers.” - John Brandon

AV guide.com reviews AV8003 AV Pre/Processor (9/3/2009)

Viewed simply as a preamp this controller is close to state-of-the-art; considering that you also get a full multi-channel decoder and Audyssey processor it is almost ideal for a mixed music and theater system. - Tom Martin

AV guide.com reviews IS301 iPod dock (7/21/2009)

Tone Audio reviews SA-7S1/SC-7S2/MA-9S2 Flagship Reference System (7/1/2009)

Home Theater Review.com reviews IS301 iPod Dock (6/19/2009)

if you do not already have a dock or will use the enhanced features, I strongly recommend giving the IS-301 a close look. - Brian Kahn

Good Sound! reviews the PM8003 Integrated Amplifier (6/18/2009)

The Marantz PM8003 is a fine amplifier! It has all the inputs and outputs you could want, and delivered sound as good as anything I’ve heard for the price - Thom Moon

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity reviews the PM8003 Integrated Amplifier (6/18/2009)

Clearly Marantz still is committed to bring decent two channel gear to market, and if this is how good the budget line sounds I am eager to hear their Reference series. - Jared Rachwalski
