If you demand superior performance from your home theater, then check out Marantz's flagship receiver — the SR7008. It can power up to 9 speakers and has connections for two powered subwoofers, bringing your entertainment to life with rich, robust sound. With connections for stacks of A/V source components, this workhorse will let you get the most out of all your viewing and listening choices. Networking and built-in Apple AirPlay offer a world of streaming music at your fingertips. Extend your movies and music far beyond the confines of your home theater with three-zone capability and three HDMI outputs. It's all packed into this powerful home theater hub and backed by decades of Marantz engineering and expertise.
Take advantage of cloud-based music services as well as your own digital music collection by connecting the SR7008 to your home network. This receiver has built-in support for free Internet radio stations, Pandora®, and subscription services like Spotify® and SiriusXM. If you have a Wi-Fi® router, then use Apple AirPlay compatibility for streaming music from an iPhone®, iPad®, or a computer running iTunes®. Access your entire digital music collection from the palm of your hand with your Apple® device. Or stream audio from any AirPlay-compatible app — like YouTube™ — to the SR7008 for playback over your home theater speakers. You can also stream music from PCs and select Android™ devices with DLNA-compatibility. AirPlay requires a wireless home network and a wired connection between the receiver and network.
When building audio/video components, Marantz pays careful attention to those little details that make the difference between good and superb performance. The proprietary Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module (HDAM) improves dynamic range and detail while minimizing noise to bring your music to life. A high-current power supply and direct mode further ensure you get the most out of your favorite tunes. High-quality 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converters can decode the latest high-resolution formats — even FLAC, WAV, and Apple Lossless files streamed wirelessly. If you're streaming low-bitrate files like MP3s, Marantz's Dynamic Audio eXpander improves sound quality by adding more depth to these compressed formats.
The SR7008's easy setup wizard walks you through the initial connections and settings.
With the SR7008's "power amp assign" feature, you'll have lots of options for speaker setup tailored to your gear. Use all nine channels in your home theater for room-filling 9.2-channel surround sound with Audyssey DSX or DTS Neo:X processing. Or reassign the "surround back," "front height," or "front wide" channels to power stereo speakers in a second and third room while still enjoying 5.2-channel sound in your main zone. You can also reassign those additional channels to bi-amp your compatible front speakers for even more detailed audio performance. Dual-zone HDMI outputs lets you watch one movie in your main room while the kids watch a TV show in another room. A third HDMI output is perfect for home theater rooms with a projector and an HDTV.
Worried about making all the right connections? Marantz walks you through the process with the SR7008's easy setup assistant. It guides you step by step through placing and connecting your speakers, hooking up source components, and optimizing all the settings so it all sounds great in your room. Plus, Audyssey's acclaimed speaker calibration system will automatically take measurements and make adjustments to tune your speakers to match your room. Just plug in the included setup microphone and let the receiver do the rest.
Download the free Marantz Remote app to control the SR7008 with your smartphone.
Once you're set up, be sure to download the free Marantz Remote app for your Apple or Android smartphone or tablet. It offers intuitive touchscreen control of the SR7008 and is the easiest way to operate many of its features and settings. Choose your source, adjust the volume, and even select music from your DLNA-compatible music server or computer.
Your receiver powers your speakers and lets you connect and select your entertainment sources. But a great receiver does a lot more it ignites your emotions. From the passion of a favorite musical artist, to the crossfire of a super-charged movie soundtrack, to the intensity and immersion of a fast-paced video game, your receiver is the key to experiencing and enjoying it in full.
Lots of features; plenty of good clean power; easy set-up and connections. Audyssey works well.
Pros: Very versatile and includes phono input.
Cons: Not necessarily a con, but it should have ventilation because it runs warm.
Excellent receiver! Easy setup. Fantastic sound. Great flexibility in uses.
Pros: Power. Flexibility. Sound.
Very nice Avr with plenty of power for my Power Sound Audio mt 100 l/r speakers. I like having the Airplay built into the Avr. Very clean and warm sounding.
Pros: price sound power
Cons: runs a little warm. Hoping the avr will last
I have always utilized marantz products and ahve never been disappointed. This is no exception
Pros: Exelent sound oan power to support my system
Easy to set up with the HDMI cables. Unit has 3 built in amplifiers, one for each of the 3 zones. I set mine up with 5:1 in main zone with 2 other stereo zones, and have good sound in all areas, can play different music in any of them at the same time. The "DeRemote" app is the best way to control the zones.
Pros: The Crutchfield pre-sales and follow up tech departments are outstanding. They are available 24-7 and everyone I spoke to was knowledgeable and clear. I am not a high end listener, but I know what I like, and the Marantz SR7008 serves my needs.
Cons: I would like to see the Zone feature on the remote expanded and also, be controlled with IR so that they can be learned by an all in one remote like the Harmony (as is, intuitive easy zone control requires the I-phone & the remote) We older listeners would like to have easier access to the Center Channel so movie dialogue can up adjusted up. Bass is a bit weak, but Crutchfield showed me a way around that in the main zone, but Zone's 2 and 3 are a bit shallow, good for my purposes.
Easy set up, very happy with purchase.
Marantz has made a very fine line of audio gear and this machine sits among the top of their receiver line. I found it to be very easy to set up with on screen menus. Once set up the unit works flawlessly and the sound is amazing. Music sounds natural and clear, while movies have a huge impact and are so much more entertaining. Marantz has made one fine machine with enough extras to keep me busy for a long time. Crutchfield was amazing and I will be back. Thanks.
Pros: Top tier machine that delivers all I needed and more.
Very pleased with my purchase. Still need more time to really test the performance of this remarkable receiver with future installments of additional audio components.
Pros: Very attractive unit.
I love this receiver , i replace Yamaha .Good time for delivery and i have good deal. The Marantz have nice soud
Pros: Beautiful for design
Cons: MDAx, AIDS SEE MULTI EQXT32
My home theater has come alive! It pretty much set up itself and connecting the receiver to my WIFI gives me access to anything I want from my home PC's to the internet. Pretty cool! I still need to set up zones 2 and 3 but I don't foresee any problems.
Pros: Setup was quick and easy. The instructions were very easy to follow and very well written. Kudos to the TechComm team for this manual. The connections are very well marked, well organized, and easy to find.
Cons: The instructions were only available via a PDF, I would prefer to have a hard copy.
Great product. Really nice build quality with a sound to match. The only downside to this unit is the size. While size might not be an issue for most, if you only have a very small rack/cabinet to put it in, make sure to measure before you buy! I have mine paired with B&W 600 series speakers and notice a definite improvement in sound quality compared to my outgoing Denon AVR-1909 (I know these are not comparable, and the Marantz is far more expensive). Really enjoying this upgrade.
Pros: Easy to setup, great sound quality, great build quality.
Cons: Large size
These days versatility is the name of the game and this receiver is versatile. I installed this for a customer and they are happy with the results.This is how the receiver is being used. The Main zone is running the theater room, with an Apple TV covering iTunes and Netflix duties ( Apple TV has a small digital to analog converter attached from the optical out so iTunes can be used in Zone 2 & 3 through the Media Player input ). Zone 2 is running the TV and audio on the back patio through the Zone 2 HDMI output and Zone 3 is running audio to the pool area. Can watch movie in the theater room, Dish network on the patio and listen to music by the pool all at the same time!! With the ability to run 9 channels simultaneously be sure if it is in a cabinet that it is well ventilated or have a small fan allowing heat to escape as the receiver can get hot.
Pros: Versatility and sound quality. Marantz receivers have nice smooth sound without the "Tinny" highs you can get with some other brands!!
Cons: Wish main Zone HDMI pass through would work without disabling or limiting other features being used.
All was well until the receiver keep going into protection mode while powering up. Even without anything connected. Beyond that it performed as expected.
Pros: 9.2 channel with amps - Audyssey XT32 (if you're an Audyssey fan) including separate subwoofer EQ - Marantz style - Unique crossover per speaker (pair).
Cons: Defective out of the box - See above.
Replaced a ten year old Pioneer Elite receiver with this Marantz. I was considering another Pioneer, but was seduced by the Marantz design. I wasn't disappointed in my purchase of the SR7008. The setup is very intuitive and user-friendly. The sound is amazing. I highly recommend this product.
Pros: Easy setup. Many features. Amazing sound. Great build quality.
Cons: Manual is on CD.....a "real" book would have been nice.
Very easy to setup and start listening. I picked the SR7008 after months of research and I am extremely glad I did, the sound is great and the volume level is exactly what I was hoping for (LOUD when needed). The HDMI arc function works great with my LG TV. Bi amping to my front speakers was easy, literally just a few clicks in the options menu and done. It has an attractive look and when pressing the buttons and turning the knobs, it feels sturdy and well built, nothing flimsy. Overall very happy with the SR7008.
Pros: option and setup menu over lays on your video screen. So you can still see your shows while you are doing little adjustments.
Cons: Big unit
Overall an excellent receiver. I'm driving Polk LSI 25's with this and using the 2 subwoofer outputs to independently drive each sub. Overall sound quality in a difficult room is excellent following a thorough Audessy config. Even with these speakers presenting a very low ohm load, the amp never seems to break a sweat.
Pros: Clarity, transparency, detail, smoothness and apparently endless power. Excellent Airplay and Marantz apps make this very versatile. Looks terrific.
Cons: I feel like I'm nitpicking here, but probably the only con is that the sound is the slightest bit lacking in warmth. This more to do with the speakers than the receiver, but it's the only con I have. I love this receiver!
Sound is great - only problem is setting up the three zones. Needed Tech Support to work me through it.
Cons: Users Manual should provide specific details on multiroom set up.Crutchfield response on June 29, 2015 OK to print.
The amplifier arrived quickly and discretely in perfect condition, and the amplifier is well made, including the speaker terminals. More importantly, the sound is amazing after performing the Audyssey calibration. For the first time, an AVR sounds like my old integrated amp that I used in the 90s and the stereo sound is fantastic. In fact, I keep listening to CDs and digital files and I'm amazed at how well the stereo performance is with this amp. Presently, I seem to prefer the Audyssey stereo compared to Pure, but each mode offers differences in the sound quality and it's easy to pick one versus the other.
With movies, the sound field is more precise with excellent dialogue and surround channel placement and volume.Also, my video is greatly improved with the amp and my projector image is greatly enhanced. If you're not ready to jump into the 4K and 3D audio world early like me, this amplifier is a great solution for the next few years until the standards and products fall into place. Also, the current price for this former top model is a complete bargain at this time and the sound quality is excellent.
Pros: HDMI switching, two HDMI outputs for TV and projector, network play of MP3 and FLAC files, internet radio, MDAX enhancement for MP3 files, Audyssey MultiEQ XT32
Love the features and versatility of equipment configurations. Audyssey speaker calibration very easy to use.
Pros: Easy to connect, configure, and use
Cons: Runs hot - be careful in an enclosed space
Wow! This receiver is simple to use and set up. The Audissey program is incredibly accurate. My older monitors sound incredible now.
Pros: Assignable monitor outputs for bi-amping.
Excellent receiver! Clean and powerful sound.
Replaced an older and very outdated Technics receiver. I'm by no means an audiophile, but I can appreciate and notice a huge difference in the quality of sound coming out of this receiver. I have it hooked up to my only two speakers - older Bose bookshelves - and I'm noticing sounds in music and movies that I've never noticed before. There are times when I look around the room thinking a certain sound is coming from something/somewhere else. I now plan to invest in some more speakers, to get the surround sound experience.
Pros: Excellent sound quality. Easy to setup.
Cons: Remote could perhaps be a bit simpler/easier to use.... but it's not that bad.
Replaced this with Onkyo 807 rec. so far this has been by far the best for sound from all the receivers, simple hook-up. DVD comes with receiver walks you thru. Even receiver walk you thru all setup. Very elegant case
Pros: superior in all aspects even for the price.
Cons: not any yet.
works as advertised, good sound
Pros: absolute simplicity in setup
Cons: a bit expensive would have liked an included cable to the AVR for 11 channels
After reluctantly deciding to replace my 30-year old Marantz receivers and associated jumble needed to make a home theater system, my main requirements were 1) do "everything" and 2) sound at least as good with stereo music as my old 2285 and 2385. The SR7008 does both. The first thing I did was compare the two for a few days each, simply playing music in the "direct" mode. SR7008 easily drives my speakers well beyond what I would ever play music or movies at and seems completely transparent--sounds exactly the same as my old 2285 with the same sources. Now for features. The primary selling points (for me) were 1) Audyssey XT32 2) Many inputs of all sorts 3) All sorts of digital compatibility-- FLAC, DSD, Pandora, iRadio, etc. 4) PC/Tablet/Phone control system 5) Movie and Surround processing--11.2 outputs and 9.2 amps, Dolby PLIIz, Audyssey DSX, etc.
To be succinct:
1. Audyssey XT32 and DSX actually work. Nicely. The "wide" speakers are amazing with the right movie soundtrack. However, I definitely didn't like the result with music. I use the stereo in "Bypass L/R" mode.
2. Inputs galore, including the 7.1 analog and phone. And you can set levels!
3. Decodes 192/24 FLAC, DSD, everything. And perfectly Has more options and sources than I could ever use.
4. There are iOS, Android and PC control apps. They all work differently and are as buggy as a $20 motel. I use the remote and TV
5. This is a 9.2, not 11.2, even with external amps.
Pros: Excellent sound, has pre-outs for all channels, 9 amps!, dual sub-out, many, many features and superb quality everywhere. Can be set up in an endless number of configurations and zones. Lots of power, no need for external amps unless you use a lot of power, but has the line-level outputs if you decide to hang some external amps on. I got two MA-500 monoblocks to run my main 4-ohm speakers, but it turned out to be completely unnecessary.
Cons: Control apps (Android, PC) are mismatched, slow and buggy. Audyssey didn't impress me as much as I'd hoped, and you can't run height/wide/back surround even with external amps. Unit will get warm if you run it hard and while I understand the motivation to be "fanless", I personally would prefer a very quiet fan and longer component life. Porthole display could display useful information but it doesn't--so you end up leaving the front panel open if you want to see what is going on.
I'm no "audiophile", so my street cred is limited to the other 99.9% of mere audio-mortals. This receiver rocks. Great power, extremely easy-to-use manual (albeit, downloadable only), all the features I would want/need and then some. I'm a boomer, so am more interested in basic functionality and quality than whiz-bang features I never use. This is a surprisingly neutral receiver coming from Japan, very balanced sound (not bright or shrill, neither muddy), with enough oomph to wow the neighbors. Though it's definitely not entry-level, it's very easy to set up if you just (a) read the manual before you start running wires, then (b) read it again and follow the directions as you go. Same with the Audyssey's MultEQ XT32. Follow directions for excellent results. Video is what you'd expect from a newer product, which is to say, excellent. No complaints thus far.
Pros: Very high quality product, excellent audio and video. Best manual for setup ever, with very understandable language. You needn't be an expert to figure this beast out IF you take the time to read the manual.
Cons: No paper manual. I get the utility in that, but for a receiver at this price, you'd think...
This was purchased as a replacement for Marantz NR1501
Overall, I am pleased with it. I bought it for Audyssey XT32. It is a improvement over MultEQ. How much is hard to guess. Maybe 30% ?? The new sound modes are quite impressive. I was able to add front wide speakers & that was a noticeable improvement for both music & movies.
Marantz has chosen to disable tone controls when using Audyssey. A decision I disagree with. The port hole is worthless at a distance of about 10 feet as is becomes too small to read.
I know I do not fit the in with the younger generation by saying that they could have left out anything to do with connecting with the internet. It is a duplication of things I don't use anyway. My TV does internet & so does my DVD player. If I wanted to do internet, it does not do WIFI, which my TV & DVD player do.
I feel that this product is over priced about $500.
Pros: Sound quality. Audyssey XT32. New sound modes.
Cons: Too many buttons on the remote. Selection method for the various sound modes. Value for money spent. No printed manual. No ability to do updates via flash memory & the USB port. Style or appearance. Size, does it really need to be this big?
My Marantz SR7008 arrived a few days ago and I am still getting use to all its numerous functions but to date I can add a few thoughts about this unit. I am replacing my prior Marantz SR7500 which served me well but was in need of upgrading. The SR7008 appears to be an awesome unit although with all the new functionality you have to learn it makes you feel like you are back in college study for an examine. The sound quality is outstanding, connecting components is easy as the on-screen menu takes you through the process quickly and the step by step guide is extremely easy to understand and follow. Functionality and control over setting up your system to fit your room acoustics or your personal listening taste is robust and if you need detailed information the supplied instruction manual on CD makes quick work of finding any additional or specific details. The remote control is straight forward and easy to use although you must read the instructions first to understand how to engage all the different input and signal processing options. I particularly like the multiple speaker setup you can facilitate with this receiver. Currently, I have my speakers in a 9/1 arrangement but you can add two additional speakers either as wide or height speakers with an additional subwoofer in a blow you away configuration. This only addresses your main room setup, you have not even touched the other zones. I will give more impressions as I spend more time with this unit. So Far - AWESOME!
Pros: Awesome sound quality and functionality with abundant power, on-screen menu is easy to follow and takes you through setup quickly and efficiently. If flexibility with adding speakers are what you are looking for this receiver has it all with the ability for placement of 11 speakers and two subwoofers as part of you main room listening setup. Sound qualify and movie sound imaging is in a word is Outstanding!
Cons: A lot to learn about capabilities and full functionality of the SR7008 and it can be a bit intimidating but provided manual on CD takes you through all functions or arrangements you might want to try with this receiver.

Marantz makes high end systems. I had SR7005 which got damaged. I needed a replacement system that fitted my budget. [ SURENDRA Dec 06, 2015 ]
I am sorry Tom - I can't answer this question because my system is not set up your way. I only have it playing in ONE room that is my loft where my SUHD TV is. I hope you get the answer you're looking for from Crutchfield's tech support or another customer. But on the positive note - I love this receiver - by far the best receiver we have ever owned. [ DOROTHY Feb 04, 2016 ]
robert if you can't find the way to do this post another 'answer' or question and I'll look at it. Once you figure it out it's pretty straightforward? but the exact sequence to get there ...? I can't remember without doing it and writing it down. good luck! I know I set things up this way with my 'old' Denon 5.1 channel unit, and haven't let this new one do it's Audyssey cal, I just set things to 'equal level' manually in all 7.1 channels, so far so good. [ RIck Y. Jan 09, 2016 ]
Yes it is possible but I don't have the sequence at hand. Enter 'Setup' and I believe the 'speaker' menu. Somewhere there is a volume settings menu for each speaker in turn (you can set volume on one speaker at a time). There is white/pink noise that plays during this procedure, turn the overall volume down to something less than normal volume at first before starting. [ RIck Y. Jan 06, 2016 ]
Hi Tim, you go into setting under speaker volume and adjust the factory setting this will fix your volume problem! If not call Marantz... [ MICHAEL Jan 01, 2016 ]
Regarding volume settings, I find I run the unit almost exactly at the settings you mentioned. The increase in listening level from 60 to 70 is dramatic and that is the range I am in for most movies (source is Oppo Blu-ray player). I almost never listen to anything at 80 or above. Experimented with favorite rock concerts at level 80. Results like being at concert in front row next to band's large speakers. Nearly unbearable. So I would not worry that you are running short of power. I cannot answer regarding zone 2 audio outputs. With this receiver, I use all 9 channels, running 7.1 speaker setup in main theater and bi-amping the front left and right main speakers. Results are fantastic. I have been an enthusiast since the 1960s. This is the sweetest, most balanced, powerful, lifelike sound I have ever owned. You have made a great choice with this receiver. [ LEO Dec 31, 2015 ]
Sorry - I do not know. [ PAUL Dec 01, 2015 ]
I'm sorry, I can't answer that question. I would have to turn everything else off to measure it. Not something I'm interested in doing at this time. Also, this is a high end unit, if you really need the answer then you probably need to buy a cheaper unit. Good luck. [ NORMAN S. Nov 30, 2015 ]
works great [ PAUL Dec 01, 2015 ]
yes, it controls on/off for each zone as well as the sources. I like it. [ PAUL Oct 17, 2015 ]
The app works well with the receiver. I have not had any issues with connectivity or operation; and it does control on/off. The app itself is fairly basic; but gets the job done. In addition, airplay also works well, and the receiver will turn on when selected from my iPad. [ CHARLES Oct 17, 2015 ]
Sorry unable to answer your question no cell service where I live. [ MICHAEL Oct 17, 2015 ]
I don't use the iPhone/iPad app so I can't answer your question, but the SR7008 works great. I use a universal remote to control it and all my other equipment. Good luck. [ NORMAN S. Oct 17, 2015 ]
It works really well as a remote control. It can control power (and input selection) for all three zones. For more advanced configuration, there's a built-in web server that also works pretty well. [ Jeffrey Oct 17, 2015 ]
Hi Greg,I have the 6009, and I would agree that "Wireless is not 100% there." Specifically, mine seemed to lose connectivity to the network over wireless. This was most significant when the receiver was powered down. I would attempt to use the Mobile app (which is pretty sweet, but also not 100% there yet) to power up and use the receiver, and the app would only find the receiver on the network about 20% of the time. I ended up just hard wiring a connection into the network, now I never have issues connecting to it. [ Marcus Aug 04, 2015 ]
Hi Greg: The Marantz 6009 opened up a world of music that had been unavailable before. Hundreds of internet stations and my favorite, Pandora. I have vinyl, tape, cd, flash drive music, all of which I can play on this receiver. Wireless lets me into the next musical dimension. [ Scott Aug 01, 2015 ]
I would get the 7008 unless you are doing Atmos. The 7008 has better room correction,a little more power and is $300 cheaper. I wish I still had my 7008 but I paid $1599 which is to much but at $999 it is a very good receiver. [ TIM Jul 31, 2015 ]
if your phone is iPhone or Android or ipad consider features as remote control, conectivity also you can left your old tablet as an a touvh graphical remote you can install it to see the demo and decide [ Abel Ayala Jul 31, 2015 ]
I used the Apple Airport Express ($99) to connect my Marantz to my router. Quick, simple, and you can also use it to stream AirPlay as well. It also allows you to connect via fiber optic to the receiver as well. [ Dan Jul 31, 2015 ]
I do not know for sure. I do have mine going to a separate amplifier. But not a power speaker. Not sure what the input specs of that speaker are. [ PAUL Jul 13, 2015 ]
You might be able to do that with a powered speaker if the powered speaker has a means of setting the levels. Use standard interconnect cables of the appropriate length. [ JIM Jul 13, 2015 ]
The preamp outputs are RCA jacks. You can connect to another amp, or to a powered speaker such as a subwoofer. [ bdunham7 Jul 13, 2015 ]
There are standard RCA connectors on the rear, allowing for connection from the pre-amplifier output to either a powered speaker or an external power amplifier to drive speakers. Pre-amplifier outputs include all of the surround-sound connections (including height and width) as well as the two zone amplifier outputs. [ JOHN P Jul 13, 2015 ]
I have had this receiver running and for a while now and I really do like it. I haven't had a chance to check if there is a cooling fan - if there is it is quiet. I have it in a cabinet with mesh sides. Heat hasn't been a problem for me. [ PAUL May 13, 2015 ]
Now this is purely my experience, but I have not had any issues with this model getting overly hot despite not having any internal fan. Mine sits about 2 feet from a wall on a Sanus AV rack that is open on all four sides, which from a cooling standpoint is a luxury. I'm only using it for 5.1, two Definitive Technology ST-Ls, three Def Tech SM55s and an SVS PC-12 Plus, so I can't address how it would do with all the potential speakers running "full blast". I do push mine a bit, but also value my hearing and thus save the insane volumes for special occasions. There are any number of comments on the various sites out there (saw one in which the contributor said he/she is running SIX external fans behind it!) so search around a bit and I'm sure you'll see something that is a little more helpful that I'm being. Also, being no expert at this, I do highly recommend using the lowest gauge wire (meaning biggest) that'll fit in your speakers, and if you plan to run a sub woofer, use a high quality (which doesn't translate to very expensive) RCA cable. Sorry I can't be more exacting in my response. Best to you, and if you choose this model, I suspect you'll be quite happy with it. [ PAUL B May 08, 2015 ]
Hi Jonathan, The receiver does get warm but in my experience not enough to warrant a cooling fan. I've actually operated the receiver continually for hours with no significant temperature problems! Great receiver that functions well. Hope this info helps! Cheers, Mike [ MICHAEL May 07, 2015 ]
Hi. I tend to run two zones simultaneously for long periods of time and the top of the unit is warm to the touch but not at all too hot (ie u can leave your hand there without fear of being burned) about 110degF. I also have about 2 inches of clearance in the rack. There is no internal fan. I have used an external fan to keep it cool (at times) as I prefer to keep it cool to prolong its life but I wouldn't say its necessary; preference. I'd say that the heat generated is standard for a Class AB amplifier. Regards [ JOHN P May 07, 2015 ]
As far as I know, it doesn't run hot, but mine operates in a rack in the basement. It doesn't have or appear to need a cooling fan. [ Jeffrey May 07, 2015 ]
No [ PAUL Dec 01, 2015 ]
This will depend on the type of set-up you are going to be doing. This receiver can support a powered zone 2 and 3 with 5.1 in the main listening area. You can find out more on the details tab under the section titled Amplifier Assignment. http://www.crutchfield.com/p_642SR7008/Marantz-SR7008.html?tp=179#details-tab [ Jeff May 09, 2014 ] Staff
ethernet [ PAUL Dec 01, 2015 ]
it only connects thru an ethernet cable [ SCOT Apr 24, 2014 ]
Unfortunately, this unit does not have wireless capabilities. [ CRAIG R Apr 21, 2014 ]
It requires an ethenet cable from your router, or a separate wireless receiver (part RX 101) that is sold separately. [ STEVEN L Apr 18, 2014 ]
Yes, this receiver connects to my wireless (WIFI) network also.. [ MICHAEL Apr 18, 2014 ]
Ethernet only. [ DARON Apr 18, 2014 ]
I used an Ethernet cable. Checking the manual I see that it does not have Wi-Fi built in, they recommend using a wireless LAN converter which will receive the wireless signal and convert it to Ethernet. I got this receiver at Christmas and really like it. it has a nice ipad app for control which works great. [ PAUL Apr 18, 2014 ]
Wired only. That said, it is possible to get an Access Point to connect it to if need be. Look for a wireless direct access point. I love this unit and highly recommend it! [ JIM Apr 17, 2014 ]
Ethernet cable only [ JOANNE B Apr 17, 2014 ]
This receiver connects to your network only through Ethernet. You can use a wireless bridge or network extender if you cannot connect directly to your router. [ STEVEN M Apr 17, 2014 ]
The correct answer to your question is yes. You can play music from certain sources, such as Pandora and then using the option button select a different source for video. So for example I put Pandora on then select either tv (for the game) or media player for my slide show. Works great!! [ PAUL Apr 18, 2014 ]
I cannot do this but there might be a way I have not discovered. [ David Jan 06, 2014 ]
You can, but you have to cheat. Buy one of those HDMI A/B switches. run switch output HDMI to the panel, cable box to input a on the switch, and the out to tv from receiver into input b on the A/B switch. toggle A/B switch to input a for silent viewing. [ BRIAN G Jan 03, 2014 ]
So, this is a Christmas present and I haven't set it up yet. However, that is my expectation. I have a Sony now that does that but it doesn't support HDMI on Zone 2. My understanding is that what you describe is what they mean by 'assignable'. To be honest, I have been reading the manual and I believe it will do it, but the instructions are a bit cryptic and I am not 100% certain. I hope to know for sure within a few days after Christmas. [ PAUL Dec 21, 2013 ]
The unit passes video and audio to Zone 2 [ PAUL Apr 18, 2014 ]
Hi Jim J. I can confirm 100% that both video and audio are simultaneously played through zone 2 through the single HDMI cable. Regards, John [ JOHN P Dec 17, 2013 ]
I have no idea as I do not use the zone capability at all right now and will never use it for HDMI. [ JIM Dec 14, 2013 ]
