Mark Fleischmann has posted a review of Marantz SR6006 audio video receiver ($1200) at Home Theater. His conclusions:
“Those seeking an audiophile-level surround receiver are usually better off going to an A/V specialty retailer, seeking out a boutique brand, and getting by with fewer features. But what about those who stubbornly prefer to do their shopping at, say, Best Buy/Magnolia or Amazon.com, especially if they want a full-feature set? Marantz is one of the few brands that occupies that kind of mass-market territory with a product that’s loaded with features and delivers truly high performance. This scrupulous and classy receiver does it all with aplomb.”
