Marantz SR7012 Review: Everything You Need To Know

The Marantz SR7012 was released less than a year ago, at the time of this publication. It contains all of the latest and greatest streaming, audio, video, and smart home connectivity, which is perfect for those who like to be on the up and up when it comes to technology.

It costs considerably less than $1000, but it can compete side by side with receivers that cost double that. The SR7012 is a 9.2-channel receiver with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X support. It also has Auro-3D audio setups, which is something we felt was lacking on the Marantz 5011.

Setup

Marantz provides a comprehensive user’s manual that includes detailed setup instructions for speaker installation, TV connections, and all other playback functions. You’ll find everything you need to get setup and moving with your integrations.

The on-screen guide will also walk you through setting everything up, but it helps to read the manual so you can set it up correctly and in detai

The Marantz SR5011 Review: The Home Theater You’re Looking For?

The Marantz SR5011 came out in 2016 and it replaced the Marantz SR5010. It’s a full-size SR receiver with a lot of features, and it rings up at the lowest price point of all Marantz full-size receivers. It has the same distinguished look that Marantz is known for. It’s sleek, black, and gentlemanly. In 2016, it offered the latest sound and video technologies, but these days, it leaves a little to be desired.

However, it is still an excellent receiver offering, especially if you want to pare down a few features to save some money. With features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth streaming, Dolby Atmos support, and DTS:X support, you’ll have plenty of hookups for just about anything.
