    Covers a niche market segment

    Good amplification internally and includes pre-outs in case you need more power

    Subwoofer outputs with filtering

    Low profile design

    HEOS streaming system works very well and has broad support including Amazon Music Ultra HD

    Good quality DACs

    Low cost



    Converts DSD to PCM prior to playback

    HEOS does not yet support Qobuz nor .iso files

    Not HDMI 2.1 upgradable

    No Dolby Vision support


    This is a very unusual unit.  It is built for 2-channel audio, but it also has HDMI inputs and output.  The combination of these two makes this unit very well adapted to a bedroom or office system that also has a Television or other HDMI sources.  The sound quality is very good for a system of this cost.  It even has tone and balance controls that can be bypassed.  Up to 2 subwoofers can be added.  The HEOS software that this unit uses is a great system and is continually being updated with more streaming options.  Google and Alexa integration is included.  It is hard to beat this AVR for its cost, good sound and flexibility.

    Response from the author:

    I wanted to add that Marantz recently enabled the ability of this AVR to TRANSMIT bluetooth audio.  This will allow you to listen on wireless headphones without purchasing extra gear!  You can choose to use just the bluetooth transmission or speakers + bluetooth transmission.  You can NOT use both bluetooth in and out at the same time however.


    They have not yet implemented this section in their web accessible set up menus.  You can only turn this on or off with the remote control on the system menus.
