Set up a wireless whole-home audio system with HEOS

With built-in HEOS technology, the SR7011 can be easily integrated into a wireless multi-room audio system. Stream music to HEOS wireless speakers in different rooms, and control each room's speakers independently with the free HEOS app. The app lets you control playback, browse music sources, and select which rooms you want to use. Play the same music throughout your home, or listen to something different in each room. You can play music from your own personal library, internet radio, and popular streaming services like Pandora®, Spotify®, and Tidal, just to name a few.

Music and video in different rooms

The SR7011's 9-channel amplifier gives you extra flexibility to expand your system into other rooms of your house. In your living room, you can set up a 7.1-channel surround sound system or a 5.1.2-channel Atmos system with a pair of upward-firing or overhead speakers. That leaves you with two amplifier channels you can reassign to power a set of speakers outdoors or in another room. If you're happy with a 5.1-channel system in your home theater, this receiver can power speakers in two additional zones. Or the extra height channels can be used to bi-amp a pair of compatible front speakers for more powerful sound. A "Zone 2" HDMI output lets you watch video from two separate sources in your living room and a second room.

Easy wireless music streaming

Access your own digital music library and thousands of internet radio stations from around the world through the SR7011's built-in Wi-Fi. There's support for subscription-based streaming services like Spotify® and Pandora®, so you can listen to all your on-the-go favorites through your home theater speakers. Bluetooth connectivity lets you stream any music you like from a compatible phone or tablet.

    Immersive Surround Sound: The Marantz SR7011 AV receiver goes beyond regular surround with the latest immersive surround sound formats, including Dolby Atmos & DTS:X.

    • Dolby Atmos: Dolby Atmos surround sound technology dispenses with channel-based coding in favor of more advanced object-based coding, giving the soundtrack designer the ability to precisely place sounds anywhere in the 3-dimensional space. Now you can enjoy this same award-winning technology at home with the SR7011 that lets you to connect a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound speaker system and 2-4 additional overhead speakers or 2-4 Dolby Atmos elevation speakers for the ultimate home theater experience.
      • A 5.1.2 configuration is based on a traditional 5.1 speaker layout complemented by 2 overhead or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.
      • A 5.1.4 configuration is based on a  traditional 5.1 speaker layout complemented by 4 overhead or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.
      • A 7.1.2 configuration is based on a more advanced 7.1 speaker layout complemented by 2 overhead or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.
      • A 7.1.4 configuration is based on a more advanced 7.1 speaker layout complemented by 4 overhead, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers (two of the overhead or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers must be powered by an external 2ch amp).
    • DTS:X: The latest immersive surround sound system, DTS:X features object-based audio coding that lets the soundtrack designer place sonic elements anywhere in the 3D acoustic soundspace, and provides for overhead speakers to deliver a stunning surround sound experience. Along with DTS:X decoding, the SR7011 features DTS-HD Master Audio decoding and other DTS audio technologies. DTS:X will require a firmware update.

    Post Decoding Formats: The Marantz AV receiver supports Dolby Surround, DTS Neural:X, and DTS Neo:6 (Music/Cinema) to enhance 2-channel and multichannel decoding formats.

    • Dolby Surround: Dolby Surround offers an enhanced cinema experience to your 2ch and multichannel movie soundtracks using your existing 5.1ch, 7.1ch or Dolby Atmos speaker setup. Dolby Surround enhances audio definition by improving the spatial dimension and overall audio definition of movie soundtracks. It does this by using four distinct surround zones that provide greater control over the exact placement of each detail in a movie sound track, so audio can be matched more accurately to the video on screen; this means more depth and greater realism for your movies. As a result, individual sounds are clearer and more distinct. It also improves the surround sound experience across the entire theater by widening the listening "sweet spot".
    • DTS Neural:X: DTS:X incorporates Neural:X, the latest spatial remapping technology from DTS, which provides a fully immersive output for all types of source content; this includes DTS bitstreams and non-encoded (PCM) data. Neural:X delivers a thrilling sense of immersive sound to your speaker layout regardless of the original source format. DTS Neural:X will require a firmware update.
    • DTS Neo:6: DTS Neo:6 is an advanced matrix decoder that takes any two-channel source (including television broadcasts, CDs and DVDs) and expands it into five or six channels. It also provides separate, optimized modes for stereo music materials and matrix surround motion picture soundtracks. DTS Neo:6 brings you a more revealing sound from ordinary stereo and a more expansive home cinema experience.

    AURO-3D Upgrade ($199): Auro-3D is the next generation three-dimensional audio standard. It provides a realistic sound experience unlike anything before. By fully immersing the listener in a cocoon of life-like sound, Auro-3D creates the sensation of actually "being there". Thanks to a unique "Height" channel configuration, recorded acoustic reflections are reproduced by these speakers and are heard naturally due to the fact that sounds originate from around as well as above the listener. Once upgraded with the AURO-Codec Decoder, the SR7011 is capable of decoding the original Auro-3D mix and playing back an Auro 9.1 or 10.1 channel configuration.

    Audyssey Platinum:SR7011 features the Audyssey Platinum suite of powerful DSP features; including MultEQ XT32, Sub EQ HT, LFC, Dynamic Volume, and Dynamic EQ.

    • MultEQ XT32: Via the supplied measuring microphone, Audyssey MultEQ32 measures all the speakers in your home theater during setup, including the subwoofer, and then generates multiple high precision DSP room acoustic correction filters, which together provide smoothest and most natural tonal balance, regardless of the brand or model of the various speakers. Audyssey MultEQ32 incorporates Up to eight listening positions can be measured, configured, and recorded. MultEQ XT32 compensates for both time and frequency characteristics of the listening area based on "Audyssey Setup" measurement results. Selection is done from three types of compensation curves - Reference (default and recommended, L/R Bypass, Flat, and Off).
    • Sub EQ HT: Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual DSP tailoring of each subwoofer in a dual subwoofer setup, for deeper bass with improved definition, compared to a single subwoofer configuration.
    • LFC (Low Frequency Containment): Audyssey LFC solves the problem of low frequency sounds disturbing people in neighboring rooms or apartments. Audyssey LFC dynamically monitors the audio content and removes the low frequencies that pass through walls, floors and ceilings. It then applies psychoacoustic processing to restore the perception of low bass for listeners in the room. The result is great sound that no longer disturbs the neighbors.
    • Dynamic Volume: Audyssey Dynamic Volume features advanced psycho-acoustic processing to deliver clear dialog and wide range sound at reduced volume levels so that you can enjoy theater-level clarity at whatever listening level you choose.
    • Dynamic EQ: Audyssey Dynamic EQ also features advanced DSP processing to deliver full range wide-band response, even at reduced volume levels. Dynamic EQ Reference Level Offset provides three offsets from the film level reference (5 dB, 10 dB, and 15 dB) that can be selected when the mix level of the content is not within the standard.

    Direct Listening Modes: The Marantz SR7011 offers two Direct Listening Modes which bypass the receiver's tone & DSP processing for higher sound quality performance. Source Direct provides playback of 2ch or Multichannel audio in its original form, without any surround or tone processing. Pure Direct goes a step further by turning off the receiver's display and analog video circuitry to minimize the possibility of any noise being added to the audio signal.

    Stereo Modes: The Marantz SR7011 surround receiver also provides two-channel stereo and multi-channel stereo playback, as well a virtual surround from two stereo speakers. The 2CH Stereo mode is for playing in two channel stereo; bass and treble can be adjusted and sound is output from the front left and right speakers, along with a connected subwoofer. Multi-Channel Stereo mode lets you enjoy stereo sound from all speakers. Virtual Speaker mode lets you enjoy surround effects using only the front speakers or headphones.

    Audio Enhancements: The Marantz SR7011 receiver provides various audio enhancements to deliver a high-quality listening experience every time.

    • CINEMA EQ (Cinema Equalizer): The Cinema EQ function gently decreases the level of the extreme high frequencies, compensating for overly-bright sounding motion picture soundtracks. Select this function if the sound from the front speakers is too bright. This function only works in the Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic (including PL II, PL IIx, PL IIz), and DTS Neo:6 modes.
    • M-DAX: Compressed audio formats such as MP3, WMA (Windows Media Audio) and MPEG-4 AAC reduce the amount of data by eliminating signal components that are hard for the human ear to hear. The M-DAX function generates the signals eliminated upon compression, restoring the sound to conditions near those of the original sound before compression. It also corrects the sense of volume of the bass to obtain richer sound with compressed audio signals.
    • Dynamic Range Compression (DRC): Motion picture soundtracks have tremendous dynamic range (the contrast between very soft and very loud sounds). For listening late at night, or whenever the maximum sound level is lower than usual, Compressing the dynamic range allows you to hear all of the sounds in the soundtrack with reduced dynamic range. DRC works when playing program sources recorded in Dolby Digital or DTS.
    • Center Spread: When using the receiver's Dolby Surround mode, the Center Spread function expands the center channel signal to left and right front speakers to create a wider frontal audio image for the listener. It is optimized and designed primary for playback of stereo music content.
    • Dialog Control: When listening to a DTS:X soundtrack, the Dialog Control feature adjusts the volume of dialog in movies and vocals in music, so voice can be heard more easily.

    Level Adjustments: The SR7011 provides the following level adjustments.

    • Source Level: This function adjusts the playback level of the currently selected input source's audio input. Use this feature if there are differences in the input volume levels between different sources. You can correct the playback level of the audio input from -12 to +12dB.
    • Dialogue Level: You can adjust the output level (+/-12dB) to clarify the dialogue output from the center channel.
    • EQ Level: If you choose not to use the Audyssey MultEQ X32 auto calibration setup function, you can manually set the tonal balance and level for each frequency band of the receiver's 9-band EQ (63/125/250/500/1k/2k/4k/8k/16k Hz) for each connected loudspeaker.
    • Subwoofer Level: You can set the receiver's subwoofer output level (+/-12dB) independent from the other speaker levels and system's main volume.

    Volume Settings: The SR7011 offers the following volume settings.

    • Volume Scale: You can choose to display an Absolute volume scale (0-98) or Relative volume scale (-79.5 to 18dB).
    • Volume Limit: You can set a maximum volume level of 0dB (80), -10dB (70), or -20dB (60) to limit the receiver's total volume output.
    • Turn-On Volume: You can define the volume setting that is active when the power is turned on (0, 1-98, -79 to +18dB, or Last).
    • Mute Level: You can set the amount of attenuation for the audio muting circuit; -40dB or -20dB below current volume, or full mute (sound turned off entirely).

    Phono Input: The Marantz SR7011 is fitted with a Phono input (MM), so you can connect your turntable and listen to your vinyl records with high-quality sound.

    7.1 Channel Input: The SR7011 features a 7.1 Channel input (Front left, Front right, Center, Surround left, Surround right, Surround Back left, Surround Back right and Subwoofer) for connecting a DVD Audio player, Super Audio CD multi-channel player, or other component that has a multi-channel port so you can playback the audio with 5.1 channel or 7.1 channel surround sound. If you will not be using the 7.1 channel input with a multi-channel decoder, you can use the front and left inputs as an auxiliary input.

    Audio Outputs: The Marantz AV receiver features color-coded binding-post speaker terminals, 11.2ch pre-outs, and a front-panel headphone jack.

    • Color-Coded Speaker Terminals: The receiver has binding-post terminals for all speaker connections. The binding-post terminals can accept bare wire, pin connectors, and banana plugs (single/dual). The receiver will accept speaker impedances of 4 to 16-ohm. The AV receiver comes with color-coded labels to easily identify which channel a speaker cable should be connected to. Since the speaker cables have labels in the same colors as the connectors on the SR7011's rear panel, there's no longer any confusion about which terminals they should be connected to.
    • 11.2Ch Pre-Outs: The AV receiver features 11.2ch pre-amp outputs (Front L/R, Center, Surround L/R, Surround Back L/R, Height 1 L/R, Height 2 L/R, and Dual Subs) for connection to external power amplifiers. The pre-outs are variable. For compatibility with dual subwoofer home theater systems, the SR7011 features two discrete subwoofer outputs. With dual subwoofers, which can be placed in different parts of the room, you'll benefit from response averaging, which helps provide smoother and more detailed deep bass, compared to a conventional single subwoofer speaker system.
    • Headphone Jack: When headphones are plugged into the full-size 1/4" jack on the front panel, all the speakers are automatically muted.

    Video Features

    HDMI 2.0a: Featuring eight HDMI inputs (including one conveniently located on the front-panel) and three HDMI outputs, the SR7011 incorporates an advanced video section that features the latest HDMI 2.0a specification, including support for 4K/60 Hz Ultra-HD video, BT.2020 Wide Color Gamut, High Dynamic Range (HDR), 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling and 21:9 video pass-through, along with support for 3D content. The SR7011 also features HDCP 2.2 compatibility, a requirement for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content.

    • 4K/60Hz: The SR7011 supports up to 4K (3840x2160 pixels) video @ 60 frames per second on all of its HDMI inputs and output. It will also pass a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p video signals via HDMI
    • HDCP 2.2: All of the receiver's HDMI jacks support HDCP 2.2, which fully complies with the latest copyright protection standard for 4K video transmission.
    • 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: All of the receiver's rear-panel HDMI jacks support RGB, YCbCr 4:4:4, YCbCr 4:2:2, and YCbCr 4:2:0 color subsampling (@ 60Hz or 50Hz). With 4:4:4 color subsampling, luminance (brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate; resulting in an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image with more colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail. The front-panel HDMI only supports 4K 60/50Hz using format YCbCr 4:2:0 only.
    • HDR (High Dynamic Range): HDR provides enhanced picture quality by simultaneously enabling greater detail for both the dark and bright parts of an image. HDR reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels, creating greater contrast. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth.
    • Wide Color Gamut (BT.2020): The BT.2020 color standard delivers a much wider color gamut and represents about 75% of the total visual color spectrum, while the current Rec. 709 color standard selected as the color space for HDTVs and early generation 4K Ultra HDTVs covers only 35% of the total visual color spectrum.
    • 21:9 Aspect Ratio: By supporting 21:9 aspect ratio, this receiver can show films recorded in the Cinema Scope format on your TV for a much more immersive video experience. When these types of films are viewed in the usual 16:9 ratio, you see black bars at the top and bottom of the screen; 21:9 eliminates these bars.
    Note: Out of the box, the SR7011 is only compatible with HDR10. Through a currently available firmware update, the unit will also support Dolby Vision and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) HDR formats.

    Three HDMI Outputs: The two parallel HDMI outputs distribute the same video signal simultaneously to two separate displays, while the discrete HDMI output allows you to play a different audio/video source in another zone.

    4K Video Upconversion: The Marantz AV receiver's sophisticated video processor  provides upconversion from standard definition (480i/480p) and high definition (720p/1080i/1080p) sources to 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160 pixels), which lets you connect all your analog (composite/component) or digital (HDMI) video sources to the SR7011 and then connect to your HDTV with just a single HDMI cable. Only the receiver's main HDMI output supports video upconversion.

    Other HDMI Features: The Marantz SR7011 AV receiver's HDMI connectivity also offers 3D video pass-through, ARC (Audio Return Channel), Deep Color & x.v.Color support, as well as an auto LipSync function.

    • 3D Ready: The SR7011 AV receiver supports 3D video pass-through (720p/1080p only) from connected 3D-compatible Blu-ray, games and broadcast devices to 3D-compatible HDTVs (all 3D components must be connected via HDMI). Special eyewear will be required for viewing 3D content.
    • ARC (Audio Return Channel): This feature of the SR7011's main HDMI monitor output allows audio to be sent from your compatible HDTV to the receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio and video to your HDTV. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to your television.
    • Deep Color & x.v.Color Support: The AV receiver supports Deep Color and x.v.Color content, which can display a larger color range than standard-definition schemes. The result is a more lifelike, vibrant picture.
    • LipSync: This function adjusts the delay between audio and video output. You can do this manually or have the receiver set the LipSync function automatically. When connected to a TV via HDMI the receiver automatically adjusts audio output timing (0-500ms) if the TV supports an automatic LipSync function. You can also manually delay the sound output up to 500ms to synchronize it with the video image.

    HDMI Standby Pass-Through: When the AV receiver is in "Standby" mode and the HDMI Standby Pass-Through function is enabled, both audio/video streams from the receivers HDMI input will be output to your television, via the AV receiver's HDMI monitor output. Once the receiver is turned "On", only video will pass through the monitor output to your TV and the audio is directed to the receiver's speaker outputs.

    • HDMI Input: Selects the HDMI Input for which the HDMI Standby Pass-Through function is enabled.
    • Last: The HDMI Standby-Through function is activated on the input source selected at the time of setting the AV receiver to the "Standby" mode.
    • Off: The HDMI Standby Pass-Through function is disabled.

    Advanced ISFccc Video Calibration: The SR7011 is certified by the Imaging Science Foundation to deliver top video quality, and the unit also features advanced ISFccc video calibration controls that allow for precision fine-tuning of the connected HDTV, even if it's not an ISF certified set. You can choose from a variety of Picture Modes - Standard, Movie, Vivid, Streaming, ISF Day, ISF Night, Custom, or Off. The Custom mode lets you manually adjust Contrast, Brightness, Saturation, Noise Reduction, and Enhancer (sharpness).

    Component & Composite Video: The receiver features three composite video inputs and one composite video output, as well as a Zone 2 composite video output. There are also two component video inputs and one component video output (the component video output can also be assigned to Zone 2).

    Video Select Function: You can switch the video input source on the receiver while listening to a different audio signal from iPod, USB, CD, Tuner, Online Music, or Bluetooth.

    Convenience Features

    On-Screen Menu w/ Setup Wizard (via HDMI): With the on-screen graphical display that combines large clear text and colorful icons, plus the Marantz Setup Assistant, setup is both simple and quick, letting you easily make all necessary adjustments and settings to quickly and easily optimize the SR7011 for your particular speaker configuration and source equipment. When you control the sound volume, the volume level is displayed on the screen, and when you switch the input source, the name of the input source is displayed. The on-screen menu display can only be output to your TV via HDMI.

    Notes:
    • The receiver's front-panel LCD window only displays source input and volume. There is an additional LCD window behind the receiver's fold-down panel which provides more display information.
    • Initial setup requires that the receiver be connected to your TV via HDMI for display of the on-screen menu. Many of the receiver's setup functions can only be found via the on-screen menu and not the front-panel displays.

    Smart Select: On the SR7011's front-panel, you'll find four Smart Select buttons that let you quickly choose from the most popular input sources; the ergonomically designed remote also includes Smart Select function buttons. With Smart Select, the SR7011 remembers not only your preferred inputs but also your preferred audio settings, so you can enjoy precisely tailored sound with each one.

    Gapless Playback: Many live and classical albums have no gaps in the music. Gapless playback ensures that there are no pauses between audio files. This provides playback with no interruptions, the way it was meant to be heard. Compatible with WAV and FLAC music files via USB or DLNA.

    Input Name & Delete: You can change the display name (up to 8 characters) of a selected input source. If an input isn't being used, you can delete it from the display so you don't have to scroll past it when you change sources.

    Dual Backup Memory Function: This receiver stores its settings in a nonvolatile memory even when the main power supply is turned off. Using the Dual Backup Memory function, you can write settings information to another memory area to back up saved settings for recovery anytime as needed.

    • Personal Memory Plus: This function sets the settings (input mode, surround mode, HDMI output mode, MultEQ, Dynamic EQ, audio delay, etc.) last selected for the individual input sources.
    • Last Function Memory: This function stores the settings which were made before going into the standby mode. When the power is turned back on, the settings are restored.

    Timers: The Marantz AV receiver features a programmable Sleep Timer and Auto Standby function.

    • Sleep Timer: This function allows you to automatically set the power to standby after a predetermined amount of time has passed; set the sleep timer up to 120 minutes in 10 minute increments.
    • Auto Standby: The unit enters standby mode automatically when no commands are sent to the unit for the set time (15/30/60 minutes). Before it enters the standby mode, "Auto Standby" is displayed on the front-panel display of this unit and the on-screen menu.

    Smart ECO Mode: This receiver is equipped with a Smart ECO Mode function that allows you to enjoy music and movies while reducing the power consumption during use, Smart Eco Mode adjusts the maximum power available according to the volume level selected to reduce power consumption.

    Protection Circuit: This is a function to prevent damage to components within the power supply when an abnormality such as an overload, excess voltage, or over-heating occurs. In this unit, the power indicator blinks and the unit enters standby mode when an abnormality occurs.

    good deal. 9.2 channels [ Jonathan  Jan 26, 2018 ]
    What a value! A top of the line AVR from a great company. I didn't plan to upgrade, but with changes to HDMI and a dead TV, I had no choice. This system meets all of my needs at a great price. Reviews from other customers and research show that this is a high quality, great sounds AVR at a fraction of the cost of similar units from other manufacturers. Add in the ability to use my Project Debut Carbon, and it's a winner for me! [ Chris  Jan 22, 2018 ]
    With Wolf's guidance, we whittled down the list of receivers to what looks to fit my needs the best. This unit was picked due to its musicality and ability to play 4 ohm speakers on all channels. [ BARRETT  Jan 20, 2018 ]
    PICKED BECAUSE NY SONY ES IS ABOUT 20 YEARS OLD STILL SOUNDS GOOD BUT LIKE THE IN/OUT THAT THE NEW MARANTZ HAS [ TIMOTHY R.  Jan 19, 2018 ]

    9 channels; value [ Jason  Jan 18, 2018 ]
    Suggested by your on-line Doc when I chatted with him about my needs. He was very helpful today. [ Paul  Jan 17, 2018 ]
    Connectivity. Advised by Marshall that for my setup, this was the best value for my money. [ Adam  Jan 06, 2018 ]
    I had been considering an upgrade for some time, and had been looking at both the SR 7010 and the SR 7011. I like what I've read and heard about both. I saw a comparison to the SR 7012, noting that the 7012 dropped the HD Radio tuner with most other features and specifications very similar. With the 7012 out now and the 7011 price reduced, this seemed like a good time to buy. I decided to buy the 7011 now before they become unavailable. [ Jason  Dec 28, 2017 ]
    Multi zone, HD radio, great reviews [ Elaine  Dec 24, 2017 ]
    Perfect for my needs: high-quality FM/HD, CD, and streaming XM audio sources plus enhancing audio from TV. Versatile. (But I have no need for all the surround speakers, just 2.1 in one zone, 2 in another; so the output capabilities are overkill for me - unavoidable, apparently, if I want to feed TV audio through system, too). [ M  Dec 18, 2017 ]
    Nearly identical in features and quality to the newer model but cost 800 dollars less! [ Kevin  Dec 18, 2017 ]
    it's what i had years ago, a marantz amp [ thomas  Dec 14, 2017 ]
    Quality [ P  Dec 14, 2017 ]
    Great price, features, sound, and build quality [ Scott  Dec 10, 2017 ]
    number of channels with 4k [ Tony  Dec 01, 2017 ]
    Lot of good reviews across internet. Integration with popular products such as Amazon Echo, Spotify, AirPlay etc.. [ Ganesh  Nov 30, 2017 ]
    Owned previous model of an older generation. Had features I wanted. Even though I could have saved $80 ordering through another source, I'm going with Crutchfield for their support in the event something goes wrong. [ Michael  Nov 29, 2017 ]
    Time to upgrade my 23 year old HK AVR 30 , that provided many enjoyable moments. For the price it was well worth it. This will last another 25 years I would hope. [ chacphet  Nov 29, 2017 ]
    Price and quality. New model is available. [ Michael  Nov 29, 2017 ]
    Previous experience with Marantz and price [ DAVID  Nov 27, 2017 ]

    It is supposed to be one of the best receivers on the market [ korey  Nov 23, 2017 ]
    Feature Packed Product for great price. [ Michael  Nov 22, 2017 ]
    Great deal with reduced price on technically up to date AV receiver [ Randall  Nov 21, 2017 ]
    I needed the updated HDCP Copy Protection to support 4K HDR. I like the design of the Marantz line and am willing to pay the premium for it. [ JIM  Nov 15, 2017 ]
    price, quality, features, HEOS. Owned by parent company of Denon and Polk Audio. [ Richard  Nov 14, 2017 ]
    Has everything in a receiver that I wanted. [ James  Nov 12, 2017 ]
    I needed a new AVR that is 4k/HDR compatible. This is offered at a good price for last years, highly reviewed model, with no discernible differences with this years model (SR-7012) [ alantracy  Nov 02, 2017 ]
    Great deal plus I needed HDMI 2.0 [ Robert  Nov 01, 2017 ]
    Performance, reputation, features [ GARY  Oct 27, 2017 ]
    Great deal on a well reviewed receiver, need HDCP-2.2 [ Nathan  Oct 22, 2017 ]
    High quality item at sale price [ Jeff  Oct 17, 2017 ]
    Stereophile review of surround systems placed an upline pre-amp/processor by Marantz with a favorable rating. I would have preferred to go with a NAD receiver by far, but was worried about committing to only 3 or 4 HDMI inputs for the foreseeable future. Might have spent $3-4k if you guys sold the Emotiva modular pre-amp/processor in a combo with a decent multi-channel amp selected by your experts. [ John  Oct 17, 2017 ]
    Archer was great and helped me make a final pick on what I needed. [ ryan  Oct 16, 2017 ]

    Price [ Charles L.  Oct 08, 2017 ]
    marantz is still the best ever always wanted one from the early 70"s till now so i bought it [ GLENN  Oct 08, 2017 ]
    good reviews [ LENNY  Oct 07, 2017 ]
    I chose the Marantz SR7011 based on its future-proof compatibility for ultra HD video and various audio formats, built-in HD Radio Tuner (increasingly rare to find these days but I use it), reasonably good output power, dual-subwoofer capability (I have 2 subwoofers), and almost universally good reviews about musical sound quality for audio playback. [ Lance  Oct 03, 2017 ]
    I have other Marantz equipment and am very happy with it. I was going to purchase the 6011, but thought the extra dollars for the 7011 were worth it. [ Tom  Oct 03, 2017 ]
    Like their products [ George Patrick  Sep 26, 2017 ]
    Good price [ Kathleen  Sep 23, 2017 ]
    Tim at Crutchfield sold me on it. Marantz is known for strong quality and performance. It has way more features than I'll use, but I like the power and the ability to use an HDMI for Zone 2. This is a terrific model year closeout. [ Blake  Sep 23, 2017 ]
    Still has HD Radio, which is very prevalent in the DC area. Also, has powered zone two that will play HDMI audio source. Will use it to power the deck speakers I got from Crutchfield in the spring, as zone 2. [ STEVEN  Sep 22, 2017 ]
    Because the Yamaha Aventage Rx-A3060 was no longer available, and wanted to make the purchase now before the SR7011 was no longer in stock. The new models coming out don't offer me anything the outgoing models don't. [ Jason  Sep 18, 2017 ]
    Had all the features I was looking for at an outstanding price. [ Steven  Sep 11, 2017 ]
    Best I've reviewed. [ Michael  Aug 08, 2017 ]
    Many reasons. Hers, wifi, blue tooth and reviews. [ Richard  Jun 22, 2017 ]
    Solid reviews online [ George  Apr 21, 2017 ]
    trouble with older unit [ Louis  Dec 04, 2016 ]
    I have had several years of great service from the Marantz SR-7008 and am now ready for 9.1 sound and 4K. [ STEPHEN M.  Oct 21, 2016 ]

    10 questions already asked

    The signals are not different. They are mono. They just allow for 2 sub-woofers in the same room. [ David  Jun 23, 2018 ]
    Not sure I don't not have a 4K tv. [ John  Jun 20, 2018 ]
    I have used regular cables and it up converts perfectly [ JEFF  Jun 20, 2018 ]
    HDMI 2.0 is fine for 4K. If you are trying to get HDR from blue ray or HDR for sports you may want to upgrade cable possibly [ SCOTT A  Jun 20, 2018 ]
    Standard high quality HDMI is sufficient. [ Curtis  Jun 20, 2018 ]
    The Marantz does feature their "All Zone Stereo" function: "The All Zone Stereo function allows you to enjoy the AV receiver's Main Zone audio source in Zone 2 and Zone 3 simultaneously (regardless of input audio signal types - analog, digital, or wireless). During the All Zone Stereo mode, only the "Multi Ch Stereo" and "Stereo" sound modes can be selected. You will have independent volume control in each zone. All Zone Stereo mode is useful when you want to enjoy the same music at the same time in multiple rooms during a get together or party." I hope that helps. My bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan [ Ryan  Jan 19, 2018 ]  Staff
    Sorry, don't know what an I3 zone is. It does support three zones though. I don't use them but I think it's described in the manual which you can download. You could also email customer support with questions but Marantz' customer support is particularly bad so it's hit or miss. Good luck. [ Russ  Jan 15, 2018 ]
    Indeed you can as that is exactly how I hook up my speakers to make it far simpler. [ JIM  Nov 28, 2017 ]
    Yes [ Stephen  Nov 28, 2017 ]
    Yes you can. [ kevin  Nov 28, 2017 ]
    Yes, you can use them. I am using them on all 9 of my speakers. [ Benjamin  Nov 28, 2017 ]
    I have had 3 updates to my unit. What Features are you looking for? [ A ROBERT  Nov 25, 2017 ]
    I don't use this feature yet so can't help. [ bob  Nov 13, 2017 ]
    It is perfectly clear. I use xfinity or xbox one s for blu rays through the receiver and to a sony XBR900 tv. It works perfectly and has no lag from lip movement to sound. Picture is crystal clear. Finally a system that works without lag or distortion. [ scoop  Nov 13, 2017 ]
    Both 1080p and 4 K are crystal clear. However you probably can't tell the difference between the two.. When you see hdr signals, you will see a significant difference in the richness of colors. [ james  Nov 12, 2017 ]
    The 7011 is an awesome amp, it's perfect to build around right now I have two rotel power amp hook up [ HECTOR  Nov 12, 2017 ]
    Yes. I'm actually doing 7.2.4 (the acoustic correction software can control two subs separately) and it sounds fantastic. I'm using the Marantz MM7025 to power the back height speaker pair. The setup routine could walk a child through it. [ Russ  Oct 10, 2017 ]
    Sound&vision review said it's in future update [ Phil  Apr 04, 2017 ]
    Hello! I'm sorry Crutchfield passed this question to me - I just bought a 7011. I want to know this too and Crutchfield should be answering the question, not its customers!!! How could WE possibly know the answer to this?!?! [ Russ  Mar 21, 2017 ]
    I personally do not know the technical on that, but I absolutely love the receiver [ JOE  Mar 21, 2017 ]
