MARANTZ SR6001 *NEW* 7.1 HDMI NSV SRS AUDYSSEY DTS HDCD DOLBY PRO2 RECEIVER - Serviced and Tested at NORTHWEST AUDIO ** CASH ONLY - Make an Offer I am in no way affiliated with Marantz. I recently purchased a refurbished Marantz SR 6001 7.1 channel Receiver for a good discount. These are my experiences so far. To begin with it looks fantastic, very well built with subtle understated styling that will look good with any other components. Making all the connections was pretty easy since the back has a good layout, the only thing I would change there is that it's a little bit hard to make the speaker connections if you use the binding posts, and there should really be a chassis ground terminal. Setup is a painless process due to the OSD and it was nice being able to easily assign all of the HD video and digital audio inputs at will. Audyssey left a bit to be desired in the EQ section, but it's a good starting point. I place a very high importance on manual EQ and crossover controls because its important to match your sound system to your listening space. In my example flat EQ was very bright and uncomfortably trebley due to the amount of tile in my house. It's difficult and expensive to add a digital EQ to a 5.1 or 7.1 system so it's nice that Marantz has one built in that can be adjusted either per channel or for all channels at once. The built in EQ doesn't have the same "feel" as an analog EQ but it is functional and serves its purpose. I/O is better than many other receivers in the same price range with 4 assignable HD inputs and plenty of digital audio inputs. One of the greatest features that it has is the ability to up-convert any source to HDMI. I would like to note that many people complain about how a number of receivers (this one included) don't up-convert composite or S video input signals to 1080 but rather 480 or 720, the reason for this is that there is no benefit in converting a composite or S-Video signal to 1080 as apposed to 720 or even 480....
