Clean and powerful. Perfect complement to the Marantz AV7705 Preamp Processor. Separate components from top-shelf manufacturers always lead to a better system. I am using an NAD amplifier to power the 4 Dolby Atmos speakers in my home theater. This unit provides for the "7" in a 7.2.4 system. Love the XLR balanced inputs.
Pros: Very clean and powerful amplifier with balanced XLR inputs.

Great amplifiers for my Klipsch speakers for my 9.2 home theater system. Good clear voice, Dolby and Atmos are very realistic. They trigger perfectly from the AV8505 and they run very cool with plenty of power.

Extremely pleased. Excellent sound/ plenty of power for my electrostatic speakers. Detect no distortion even at high volumes. Run very cool. Highly recommended!
Pros: Nothing bad to say

Not sure yet. I bought one in 2014 , same model and that is now in a repair shop. It started to shut itself off. It may have been a lemon . I am hoping this is not the case with this one, but too soon to tell.
Pros: At this point it sounds really good.
Cons: Hopefully the problems I have had with my other one will not be the same with this one.

The Marantz amp gives me enough power to play just about any classical work, some of which works need quite many watts. This is difficult to do with many amps but the 8077 takes it in its stride. Just yesterday I played an organ recording and it sounded as if the organ was right in front of me instead of speakers. All of this took place without any distortion. I feel even though it is not inexpensive, it is still a bargain and ordering it from Crutchfield is a good idea since they give you service for anything you buy from them which is more than any other company does.
Pros: Lots of power, easy to use, very clear sound
