Warning, long review. TL;DR folks can stop right here: I liked it, lots of features, go ahead and buy.

No? Still here? Well, then:

Funny (short) story: I wasn't actually ready to step up to the AV7005, but our Denon receiver in the library was "gifted" with some cat vomit through the top cooling vents; I didn't know it had happened, because the back of the receiver was through-wall and sort of invisible inside a closet on the other side of that wall. So the Denon just kept on working until eventually, the acid in the vomit actually ate through some of its wiring. Nice, eh? Silly cat.

So the Denon went downstairs into my shop, where it will likely sit until the weather warms up (our basement is cold!) and I"m willing to sit there, rip it apart and fix it. My Sony 7.1 receiver then moved from our home theater to our library (and I built an anti-cat cover for the unit, there will be no more "vomit surprises"), and then I picked up the Marantz AV7005 and some MA-700 amplifiers to serve in our home theater -- I'd been eying this specific unit for a while, and well, as I told She Who Must Be Obeyed, "the cat made me do it." I can't say I'm depressed over the upgrade, but this wasn't exactly how I thought it would come about.

So, the AV7005 is a 9.1* / 7.1 / 5.1 / 4.1 / 3.1 / 2.1 / 2 channel preamp-processor. It's really pretty if you like gear with rounded corners, and I have to say that with the secondary panel open, the controls are well thought out and work well -- even without a monitor on to show you the menu settings. That's true until you get to network streaming, where not enough information is shown... then you really need a video monitor running.

I've had the unit for a few weeks now, and after running a loop CD thru the 7.1 analog inputs for 50 hours or so, this component can truly be described as neutral. Thru it's pure direct mode, I simply can't ''tag'' a coloration of any form to the AV7005, and that's very good. Of course, it has all the bells and whistles of a modern pre-pro, but musicality is what I was also striving for, when I purchased it. Listening often to my SACD selections, I was really looking for a unit that could help pass the ''analog sound'' of my Mobile Fidelity recordings, and this unit hits a home run in this respect.

Of course you could get a dedicated stereo pre-amp that could be a little warmer in it's delivery, but if like me, you are looking for an all-inclusive unit to control your home-theater, as well as your music collection, I believe this one is unbeatable within it's price range.

Update June 21, 2013
This afternoon I noticed the front main speakers were not working, the all too familiar drop-out problem. This time resetting the microprocessor worked perfectly the first time. I will use this opportunity to encourage owners to enter their settings into "Memory Saving" as described on page 115 of the User Guide, so if this happens to you you'll have those settings saved. I'm happy to report that all is now back to normal and the system sounds great.

Update January 18, 2012
Wouldn't you know it, the moment I brag about no speaker dropout problems I get one that includes not just the front mains, but all of them. I was using a PS3 when I noticed a problem with games and Netflix; the only sound was coming from the subwoofer. I had recently played a 3D Blu-ray disc which worked perfectly so I was really surprised that I was having a problem. At first I suspected the PS3 but finally discovered the problem was with the Marantz again. The exception for the Blu-ray discs had thrown me off for a moment.

I tried the procedure described on page 115 of the manual but for some reason that didn't work this time. I checked all of the physical connections and they were all OK so I decided to start all over with the automatic speaker setup using the microphone. As soon as I started, the test tones came through normally from all my speakers; I went ahead and completed the process and by that time all speakers were functioning normally. Using the steps on page 115 I saved all settings and so far all is well; the speakers are all working as they should.

I still have no idea why that happened but the Marantz seemed to respond to my efforts to correct the problem. I'll update this again if anything new develops.

Yes, I'm an ex-audiophile. why ex? because I got married and now with kids.
Used to invest a lot in hi-fi! 15" Velodyne subwoofer, thousands of dollars spent on separates (Anthem AVM-20 and MCA5) expensive cabling (audioquest) and you name it.
Rcently noticed there's a pretty attractive Marantz processor with all the latest and greatest features. the only thing lacking in that AV Pro is the pricy THX Ultra whatever certification.
My main concern after reading all the specs, is that for such a low price (realtiv to the average high-end AV Proc that range $3k-10k) I would probably need to settle for the sound quality comparing to my Anthem.

Guess what, I've been testing this sysytem for several weeks now(connected through XLR to my Anthem Amp) and it kicks my previous $3K worth processor a$$, in terms of sound quality. I've spent hours listening to known tracks and movies. I'm deeply impressed! what a bargain. I actually doubt my Anthem amplifier now :-)
I just feel very dumb for all those years investing in niche overpriced components while a mass market AV manufacturer actually outperforms all those hyped aluminum coated devices for a fraction of the price!
Bravo Marantz for an awsome product.
btw, I got it for a better price at OneCall (What's your price)
