Marantz AV7005 7.1 A/V Processor


It was a mistake of me to let the Marantz AV8003 escape when I was finished with the review. For the couple of issues that I ran into with it, the benefits were far greater. I'm not making the same mistake as I already paid Marantz and will be keeping...

Marantz AV7005 Networking A/V Processor Review


Marantz has released a solid feature packed product with their new Networking AV7005 A/V Processor. It has top notch audio & video performance and is very reasonably priced.

Great channel separation ; 7.2 balanced output ; MM Phono input ; Packs a billion features: a true feature creature

Cumbersome remote ; No S-Video ins / outs ; No Audyssey XT32

Marantz AV7005 7.2 Channel Preamplifier First Look

Marantz AV7005

Marantz AV7005 7.1-Channel A/V Preamplifier


I must say this is the best preamp I've ever owned, I had a B&K 30, Sunfire TGP v3 preamp sold them both to get this one. Now in my opinion the B&K sounded the best but lacked the features, HDMI, DTS-HD ect… no phono input. The sound quality of the...

AMPS: Emotiva XPA-2 2-CH amp & XPA-5 5-CH amp

Aesthetics; Great balance between music and HT

Lacks a rich feature set if compared to other "advanced" units at this price point
