Happy listening

I really keep discovering how much I enjoy the sound quality of the AV8805. I use the multi-zone capabilities which allows someone in the main zone to watch\listen while I work to music in another zone. I have a Sunfire amplifier and I am constantly amazed at the sound quality that the AV8805 gives me. My ears become accustomed to the quality of the sound but every once in awhile I will be listening and the silence between the sound is amazingly clean. For me this has always been the mark of a quality sound system. If I were to have a complaint it would be the software that is in the AV8805. Occasionally I have had to do a factory reset because the software doesn't adapt to physical changes (i.e. switching from RCA cables to XLR on the CD player. It is a hassle to reconfigure everything after resetting the software. While I don't have the most expensive sound system but the AV8805 is a good citizen for my setup and I derive a lot of pleasure to it and recommend the product.

Pros: Sound Quality

Cons: Configuration sometimes a hassle.

The Marantz AV8805 is an amazing unit. The soundscape it creates is balanced and fills the room. I paired the processor with Sunfire amps and BW 800 series speakers. I've had units from Denon and Lexicon before, and my room has never sounded better. I also have to compliment the video image. If anything, I'd say the image looks a little crisper running through the processor without any noticeable artifacts or over-enhancement. I was surprised that the unit was a little lighter than the Denon it replaced...not sure why that matters, but I just thought I'd mention it. Finally, the unit is easy to set up and works seamlessly with Control4, which is how I power my system. The iPhone App is also fun to control the unit with as well as monitor what the system is doing.

Pros: Amazing sound. Simple GUI and easy to set up and adjust.

Cons: Pricey, but worth every penny. Nothing can compare at this price-point.

Marantz AV8805

I would give it five stars if it had of worked with my new Samsung Q8FN QLED 82 inch TV through HDMI cable. One of the tech support folks named Jack spent about two hours trying to fix and he finally concluded that it had a bad HDMI board. Jack submitted it for replacement with a new one but unfortunately they are out of stock until the end of January. We did a work around by hooking the TV direct to the Comcast box and optical audio from the TV. It did work perfectly with my ten year old Samsung Plasma 65 inch TV. I spent days troubleshooting this issue so I am not happy after spending $$$$. I will update if the new unit works with the TV.

Worth the Price!

Sounds great, and has really good features. I had a Marantz AV7703 and was on the fence on whether it was worth upgrading to this unit. i am not sorry i did, the detail is noticeable over the AV7703. Heos works good, and this has plenty of inputs. I am using the processor with Emotiva XPA-3 amps, and Def Tech 9080X speakers with 9080CS center. Sounds very good, worth the investment!

Pros: Excellent Sound, lots of features, good DAC chips (AK4490). More than enough inputs, XLR outs.

Cons: Pricey
