The Marantz SR8002 Surround Receiver – For the Audiophile and Videophile in All of Us

Do you call the SR8002 an "audiophile's receiver" or a "videophile's receiver"? May we suggest that the answer is simply "Yes"? Here, you'll find the power, flexibility, and advanced performance you expect from Marantz. And a few surprises, too! All in a new chassis size that's more convenient than ever.

125 watts x 7 channels all discrete amplifier stage
(View larger)


Let's begin with the obvious – THX® Select2 certification. It's your assurance that, in addition to the power you'll need to fill average-sized rooms with theater-quality sound (125 watts continuous from each of its seven amplifiers), other performance parameters like signal-to-noise and distortion are absolutely first class.

Power and Flexibility

Then there are the Marantz touches. A toroidal-based power supply. Current feedback amplification. An anti-interference copper plated chassis that's less than 16" deep so it will fit in more places easily. Adding to the audio flexibility is a 3rd Zone output (with an individually selectable source!) to make your SR8002 the center of a whole house distributed audio system.

Multi-Room Remotes Included

Superior Audio and Video Technologies

On the A/V side, the SR8002 features HDMI switching (version 1.3a) for up to four sources and two display devices. And there's format conversion to HDMI with Time Base Correction so even your older video sources will look their best. If you're not quite ready for HDMI (or if your displays aren't), the SR8002 offers two assignable component outputs, too. One infrared receiver input and two IR outputs add enormous control flexibility as do two DC "trigger" outputs.

Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby® Digital Plus and dts-HD™ Master Audio are the next wave of high resolution sound and the SR8002 incorporates them all. The SR8002 is also one of the few receivers to feature Audyssey's unique auto calibration capability. This is a significant improvement over previous "room correction" strategies in that it improves the listening characteristics of your entire room rather than for just one or two seats.

Includes Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby® Digital Plus
and dts-HD™ Master Audio

    After 9 years, it was time to upgrade my former top-of-the-line Sony ES receiver (STR-DA 777ES) to take advantage of improved audio and high-definition video switching. After reading all the professional reviews, I settled on the Marantz SR8002. Three weeks after an extensive configuration and testing, I must say that I am pleased overall with my choice. However, several surprising configuration limitations keep me from giving it a full-on 5-star review.

    Let me preface my review by stating that my home theater / audio configuration is on the higher-end of the scale: 3 KEF Reference speakers for the front 3 channels, Boston Acoustics rear surrounds and subwoofer, Sony ES SACD player (and yes, I have an SACD collection!), Bang & Olfusen turntable, Sony reference DVD player, AppleTV, Roku music server, JVC SVHS VCR, Mitsubishi HDTV monitor.

    My first priority was in upgrading the audio quality, and I must say that in this respect, the Marantz SR8002 far exceeded my expectations. As a 7.1 channel amplifier, there are 7 x 125watt channels available, native decoding of the latest lossless HD digital audio on BluRay (DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD), Audyssey microphone and room equilazation, and THX Select 2 certification. For the ultimate audio experience, the Marantz SR8002 offers two "Pure Direct" modes - the first one bypasses the equalization and surround circuits, the second mode completely disables all video and display logic for even shorter audio output path. The SR8002 also provides a toroidal power transformer for extra headroom when needed, and in my setup the audio performance is dramatic.

    I chose not to expand my current 5.1 speaker configuration to 7.1 channel.

    I purchased my Marantz SR8002 and thought I'd offer my review because Amazon had none. Mine is the 220v Korean version with no satellite radio available here, but everything else is the same. My color is gold, and it's gorgeous.

    I have owned my unit for 4 days. It sounds quite excellent. I originally planned on going with Onkyo, but those are really expensive in Korea, and horror stories about some Onkyo models and "lip-flap" issues over HDMI scared me away from those this time around. My previous receiver was an Onkyo TXDS-575, and it had a ground-loop hiss which angered me 8 years ago when I bought it -- so in short, I decided to go with another brand this time around.

    Now back to the Marantz. First of all, it looks great. It's a heavy 38 pounds, and comes double-boxed and well-packed. There are gold-plated RCA outs all through the rear, but I was disappointed there are no banana-plug posts for speakers (you have to hand-screw them). Come on ... this thing costs a lot ... we should at least get those!

    This unit runs warm, but not hot. That's a plus. I was scared of the extreme heat/fire stories from some of the higher-end Onkyo models.

    You get 2 remote controls with this unit. One is the main remote, which has a backlight, and can be used to "learn" other remotes from the rest of your entertainment center, or key codes can be entered from a list in the back of the manual. The second is an additional remote which has average bells/whistles, but can be used in a 2nd or 3rd room. My manual, by the way, has about 6 or 8 languages in it -- it's as thick as a book.

    I bought this Marantz to take advantage of HD audio codecs from Bluray.

    Mr. Fichtner has made some inaccurate statements about Audyssey in the Marantz, that I need to clarify to prevent customers from getting the wrong impression.

    1) Large and Small settings for speakers are not set by Audyssey. They are set by Marantz who uses 80 Hz as the criterion for determining Large and Small. Audyssey recommends setting speakers to Small manually

    2) The 9 dB cut in the subwoofer level (not LFE as Mr. Fichtner states) was due to a Marantz firmware problem unrelated to Audyssey. It has been fixed in current products and Marantz dealers can update any unit that was purchased earlier.

    I have had my Marantz SR8002 for about 12 months now. I orginally purchased this to upgrade to current codecs (Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA) and HDMI connectivity. I was changing from my long time Rotel equipment, so I wasn't sure if I'd be happy. To make a long story short, I have been extremely happy with this receiver. I compared this side by side with an Onkyo TX-NR905, a Pioneer Elite VSX-94TXH & a Denon AVR 3808CI. Although each of these receivers have their plusses, the Marantz beat them hands down on sound quality. (The Pioneer would be second in that contest) The only minus that effected earlier units was a couple of firmware updates that had to be done by a service center. If you are buying a new unit after the date of this review, your unit should have the newest firmware. I usually keep my electronics for a long time and this unit is no exception.
