Networking Capability for Music Streaming
Built-in networking functionality makes the SR6006 an ideal media center. The Ethernet port lets you stream audio from online music services, such as Pandora, Rhapsody, and Napster, as well as from your home network. Additionally, built-in AirPlay allows you to stream music wirelessly from your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.

You can also access Internet radio stations with the built-in v-Tuner. The built-in HD radio delivers FM that sounds almost as good as CD, and AM that often outperforms conventional FM.

As an added convenience, the SR6006's three audio zones let you listen to music in two separate rooms while playing a movie in another while a second zone of video allows simultaneous viewing of different TV programs and movies.

On-Screen Wizard Simplifies Setup
The receiver features auto setup and room calibration and allows you to navigate setup on your TV screen via HDMI. Plug in the included calibration microphone, place it in your favorite seat, and run the setup wizard. The Audyssey MultEQ-XT automatically analyzes your room's acoustic properties to determine the optimal settings. If you wish, you can manually fine-tune individual settings, such as bass, treble, speaker distance, and other properties.

Seven Audio Channels Produce a Theater-Like Experience
For an enveloping surround sound experience, the SR6006's amplifier delivers seven 110-watt channels of equal power and quality. The result is a balanced sound field capable of faithfully reproducing the most demanding movie, gaming, and multi-channel audio.

A 7.2 channel preamp output offers system upgrade possibilities. Use the Dolby Pro Logic IIz feature to add second subwoofer for enhanced low frequency impact.

Clear, Pure Audio in High Def

There's also a 192kHz/24-bit digital-to-analog converter for all channels and an isolated audio circuit board for improved sound and minimal interference. Source Direct mode switches off all unused circuitry for the purest audio possible.

M-XPort for Bluetooth Devices
Enjoy audio playback from a variety of sources, including laptops and cell phones, using the M-XPort input. By connecting an RX101 Bluetooth receiver module (sold separately) to the SR6006, you can wirelessly stream audio signals from Bluetooth devices that feature A2DP compatibility.

Front-Panel USB Connection for MP3 Devices
A front-panel USB connection allows direct playback of iPod, iPhone, and other USB Drives. M-DAX onboard audio expansion circuitry restores your compressed audio files to supply missing high-frequency information, resulting in near-CD sound quality. Additionally, a phono input with current-feedback technology provides a convenient means for playing records.

I've always been a fan of stereo audio reproduction. However, after buying a set of Bowers & Wilking CM8's about 6 months ago, I've started to notice that the room setup and acoustics are equally important as your audio reproduction chain. For me that became manifest when using the CM8's (which is a highly transparent and revealing speaker) in an apartment with all concrete walls and solid floor and ceiling. The sound in my pure stereo system became like a tin can. It felt constrained and the speakers sounded way smaller than their size (or what I heard from them in the store for that matter).

As I knew changing the acoustics of the room would be a no-go (as my spouse wouldn't be too thrilled in having all sorts of room treatment), I became interested in the possibilities of using the room correction features in AV receivers. Also, I wanted to get a warmer sound than the class-D Rotel amp I was using giving me. This is the story I brought to my HiFi store.

And it took me all but 5 minutes to become convinced of the Marantz SR6006. It was the first receiver they recommended to me. And immediately the sound characteristics grabbed me as the kind of the sound I was looking for. Mind that I'm not one to want to hear every bit on a CD, I want to hear the music first and foremost. I've auditioned a lot of receivers and also pure stereo amps (costing way more than the SR6006), but came back to the SR6006 every time. Simply because I enjoyed it's sound the most. I used purely classical CD's (Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto 2 and Vivaldi's Four Seasons) as reference. So I chose to go with the Marantz. I also added a REF subwoofer mainly for movies.

In summary, this is the best recevier I have personally ever owned or "heard" for that matter.

This is the third receiver I've owned and the first one over 1000 dollars. My other systems sounded nice from what I could tell (A digital panasonic around ~300 and a ~500 dollar JVC), but I needed something with HDMI inputs and dual outputs so I could do a single HDMI run to my new Optoma HD33 3d projector as well as display a mirrored signal to my 46" samsung LCD for the kids and for shows during the day.

As such, I was primarily shopping receivers with dual video 1.4a HDMI output so I could send my HTPC and PS3 signals to both my 46" LCD as well as the Projector.
I was looking at the Denon 3312 and the Onkyo NR809, but decided to go with this one based on reviews elsewhere comparing the three. Most said that the sound quality of this one was the best in their opinion. I don't have the time to really go and find a place to audition them so I figured I would give it a shot and am happy I did.

The 1080p picture coming from my PS3 looks just as good or better than a direct connection to the monitors. I demoed Tangled 3d and Lord of the Rings Blu Ray and the theatrical sound experience was so much more immersive and pleasing than my other receivers. I really really enjoyed the experience. My wife noticed the quality too and commented on it. She noted that she could even tell a significant difference in the audio quality of the streamed NETFLIX movies she was playing for the kids.

In general I would say the voices are more realistic and stand out in general, also subtle sounds that I never noticed before such as background music, wind, rain, other effects etc are distinct.

Looks beautiful, sound on my system is better than ever. Love the fact that the menu comes up on the TV...I am used to having to page through on the receiver itself. The receiver told me to upgrade firmware and I did with no problems. Menu took a little time to get familiar with, but now I have it under control. This replaces my Harmon Kardon AVR 630 that I have had for a few years, and what an upgrade. A tip...the Audyssey mic is in a white box, that is in the styrofoam itself. I searched all over for it, then called the seller to tell him it was not included in box, he told me where it was "hidden"...he said he get's the question "frequently".
Also to get this receiver set up on my Harmony 1100 remote I had to tell the remote it was a SR6005..I guess they don't have the SR6006 in their database yet.

I have had this unit since last Wednesday and I am very happy with the sound quality. I upgraded from the Marantz SR6003 so that I can get networking. I suggest to go with the setup defaults unless you know exactly what you are doing. For example, I had to switch the speakers to small from large after running Audyssey. The Audyssey setup went very well and was accurate other than the speaker size. Be sure to read the manual (on CD Rom). The manual is very complicated with endless adjustments. If you want to operate the unit via a browser, be sure to change the internet network set up to on; otherwise, the unit will hang on commands. The internet radio link to the vTuner site was a challenge. It took me two days to figure out how to connect the unit. You have to type in the MAC address exactly how it is on the unit (all caps and no hyphens). It will take a while for the unit to register on the site. Give it 24 hours or so.

I do not have any negatives so far. If I do, I will update this review.
