HDAM Technology and Current Feedback

Multiple input options, including seven HDMI inputs with 4K Ultra HD and 3D pass-through. View larger.

Featuring Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module (HDAM) technology, the SR5008 Network Home Theater Receiver delivers unparalleled sound clarity. HDAM technology provides an ultra-fast slew rate for true wideband response and maximum dynamic range to deliver optimum sound quality with today's high-resolution audio formats.

In addition to HDAM technology, the SR5008 also features current feedback instead of the typical voltage feedback configuration. Current feedback technology provides a wide closed-loop bandwidth and a very high slew rate, delivering superior fidelity with wideband audio sources..

Expanded Suite of Audyssey Technologies

Audyssey MultEQ XT provides automatic room acoustic measurement and correction. Via the supplied microphone, the system analyzes sound from all the speakers (including the subwoofer) and generates precision digital filters for each channel to provide the smoothest, most natural tonal balance. With MultEQ XT, the sound from the speakers and the acoustics of the room are truly harmonized, something not possible with conventional frequency-only compensation.


Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides real-time acoustic compensation for a smooth, natural tonal balance at any listening level, and Audyssey Dynamic Volume tames loud jumps in sound level, such as commercials, for enjoyable listening even at reduced volume levels.

Full Range of Network Sources

Designed for today's connected lifestyle, the SR5008 lets you enjoy a broad range of music streaming with thousands of Internet radio stations from streaming music services including SiriusXM, Pandora, and Spotify (subscriptions required). The SR5008 is also DLNA 1.5 and Windows 8/RT compatible, letting you access your favorite audio content from your PC or Windows tablet via your home network.

Add the optional RX-101 Wireless Bluetooth Adapter to enjoy streaming music wirelessly from any Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet.


Network-enabled so you can stream music via AirPlay, Pandora, Spotify, and SiriusXM Internet Radio. View larger.

Apple AirPlay

The SR5008 includes AirPlay, which lets you stream music from your iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad. It also lets you access your iTunes content on your PC or Mac via your home network.

Front Height Speaker and Multi-Zone Configurations

You can set up the SR5008 for a number of speaker configuration options, including adding front height speakers for a dramatically expanded front soundstage, thanks to Dolby Pro Logic IIz. You can also configure it for 5-channel operation in the main room and connect a pair of speakers located in another room. This multi-zone option lets you enjoy surround sound in one room while family members enjoy different audio in another.

The SR5008 can also be configured for front main (L/R) bi-amplified speaker operation if you own bi-amp-capable speakers. The receiver is equipped with dual subwoofer outputs.

Seven HDMI Inputs are 3D and 4K Ultra HD Compatible

With seven HDMI inputs (including one conveniently located on the front panel), you can connect a broad range of source components, and all HDMI inputs are 3D and 4K Ultra HD (3,840 by 2,160 pixels) compatible. With HDMI standby pass-through, the SR5008 lets you enjoy programs on your TV (such as newscasts) via your TV's speakers, instead of the surround sound system's speakers.

Setup Assistant for Easy Use

With the on-screen graphical display that combines large, clear text and colorful icons, it's quick and easy to optimize the SR5008 for your particular speaker configuration and source equipment. The Marantz setup assistant walks you through the whole process.


The Marantz Setup Assistant simplifies installation and allows you to optimize the SR5008 for your speaker setup. View larger.

The multi-way speaker connections on the rear panel are banana plug compatible and color coded for quick and easy connection, and the supplied color-coded speaker cable labels ensure correct speaker cable hookup the first time.

The included remote control features discrete source selection buttons that let you choose your preferred source with the touch of one button.

High-Power, 7-Channel Power Amplifier Design

For optimum sound quality, the SR5008 features identical power amp circuitry for all channels, including discrete power amplifier output stage design. Rated at 100 watts into 8 ohms for each of the 7 channels, the receiver provides high power and wide dynamic range with low distortion for superb surround sound.


Control the receiver from your iOS or Android mobile device with the free Marantz Remote App. View larger.

Wide Range of Control Options

In addition to the supplied remote control, the SR5008 offers a number of other control options. With the free Marantz Remote App, you can easily control the receiver from your iOS or Android mobile device. And, the SR5008 features an RS-232C serial port for connection to an automated home control system, as well as I/P control via the RJ-45 LAN port.

Front Panel USB Input

With a built-in USB port, the SR5008 supports digital music playback and charging with an iPod, iPhone, or iPad, and playback from a USB device.

Dynamic Audio Expander Improves MP3 Tracks

The Marantz M-DAX Dynamic Audio Expander function breathes new life into compressed music sources such as MP3 tracks for a more vivid, dynamic listening experience.

Shallow Chassis Depth

The remarkably compact chassis is only 13.2 inches deep, which lets you install the SR5008 in tight spaces such as a TV cabinet.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Marantz SR5008 is taking the place of my Denon 3311. The 3311 is relatively new (2 years), so I wasn't expecting the Marantz to be much of an upgrade. If all you want to do is watch movies, then that may be true, but if you enjoy listening to stereo music, the Marantz is a beast!


Getting this out of the box is fairly simple. Crack the tape, pull 2 pieces of foam out, lift the receiver out, remove 3 pieces of tape on the foam wrap, unwrap. Done. The power cord (standard PC style cord) and remote sit snuggly in the Styrofoam at the top of the box. The pitiful manual (more on that later), along with a nice set of labels for ALL of your cables and the antenna are in a plastic bag on top of the receiver.


This is one place I am disappointed by this receiver. In the Denon, I had a fat, printed manual. Marantz has foregone the printed manual, instead including a ridiculous "quick start" guide and a CD with a PDF of the full manual on it.

The disappointment quickly dissipated when I dropped the CD in the computer. The PDF manual is fully searchable and includes buttons you can click on to navigate around the manual. And the reality is that for most, once everything is setup and you are using the receiver, you really don't need the manual.

The quick start guide is something you should just toss out.

Build Quality:

The Marantz is about as tall as the Denon, but is not as wide or deep. When I first saw this, I was quite surprised. I was leary that the smaller size might have meant they compromised somewhere. I'm happy to report that this is definitely NOT the case.

Ah, receivers. They go obsolete so quickly. A few years ago, I settled down with a Yamaha (with 4 HDMI ports). Alas, in 2014, we have non-backwards-compatible game consoles, 3D, 4k, HDMI version 1.whatever-a. What does this mean? The average consumer has tons of HDMI-compatible devices and needs a receiver that is capable of routing all of those signals to our TVs/Projectors and speakers. With so many requirements around video signals, it's almost like audio has taken a backseat (7.1/9.1, anyone? didn't think so!).

So, given my old Yamaha went obsolete in a mere 5 years (on account of lack of HDMI ports and lack of 3D support), I wanted to be very careful about selecting my new receiver. After much research, I decided to settle on the Marantz 5008. Coming from a Yamaha, I was very pleased with the Marantz' Audyssey features, rear input layout and overall sound quality. The on screen interface was also pretty user-friendly (compared to Yamahas and Onkyos).

One minor gripe is that the LCD display on the unit is tiny. With 20/20 vision, I couldn't read the display at about 14 feet. I don't understand why the product developers made such a design choice given every other receiver on the market has a much larger LCD display. Apple syndrome, anyone? Also, build quality was only decent (when compared to my previous Yamaha). The volume and input knobs had a certain "looseness" to them.

Unfortunately, audio is only half the battle with today's receivers. On the other side of the coin, we have video processing. And, that's where this model really falls short. Here were the issues that I noticed in 45 days of ownership:

1. Video Lag.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Similarly priced home theater receivers, regardless of brand name, tend to have similar features. Choosing between them is essentially a matter of comparing which receivers most closely match your exact requirements. In my case, I require a healthy number of HDMI inputs, build reliability so that I can be confident that my receiver will function without issues, a generous warranty in case it doesn't, home networking/peripheral connectivity that really works, good multi-channel sound and solid high definition video. The Marantz SR5008 7.2 channel home theater receiver is nearly identical to similarly priced Yamaha and Denon receivers. It seems that the 2013 models are following a template of sorts with Apple compatibility a key requirement. All of the aforementioned comparably priced full-featured models offer Apple Airplay for streaming from an iPhone or iPad, home network connectivity that allows iTunes content to be streamed from a PC or Mac, free remote apps for smartphone control, generous internet radio availability, USB and DLNA connectivity, multiple HDMI slots, 1080p upconversion and 3D/4K Ultra HD compatibility.

What distinguishes the Marantz SR5008 is its beautifully nuanced sound, courtesy of the easy to use Audyssey MultiEQ XT set-up protocol and the included Audyssey Dynamic EQ which provides real-time acoustic compensation that yields a very natural tonal balance regardless of your listening level (this is a very significant feature for apartment dwellers who would rather not face angry neighbors). Music sounds rich and full with a solid soundstage that isn't attenuated by multi-channel audio, a frequent complaint about receivers without the ability to compensate for the additional channels.
