What customers say about "Key Specs"
Marantz SR5011 7.2 Channel Network Audio/Video Surround Receiver with Bluetooth
  • The power is a near perfect match for my Klipsch RP series speakers. Tons of features, you just can't go wrong here.
  • I'm very impressed so far. It sounds great on both music and movies, upgrades the sound of MP3 files, and looks a lot more expemsive than it is.
  • The ability to fine tune speaker balance, volume, and tone/sound fields on each input is a huge PLUS for me
  • Being able to utilize the Sub Woofer while in Pure Direct mode is another HUGE plus and shows that Marantz is still rooted in Hi-Fi
  • It runs very hot. I also have an Onkyo 656 which doesnt run anywhere near these temps. It's hot enough that I wouldnt put it in my entertainment unit, instead sat it on top for best ventilation.
  • Can’t use both rear surrounds and up-firing/ceiling speakers simultaneously; limited to 5.1.2 or 7.1 configurations, no 7.1.2 with this model
Marantz SR5012 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD Network AV Surround Receiver with HEOS, Black
  • This is a very good A/V receiver for your entry level to midrange home theater.
  • Has enough channels to power your front left, right and center channels along with a pair of side and rear surrounds plus two subwoofers.
  • With 100 watts per channel it should be loud enough for most rooms. What I like most about it is how it works with Alexa.
  • Great audio receiver, produces awesome sounds when paired with the Bose 301 speaker. Has build-in wifi and Bluetooth.
  • On screen display does not work with 4k 60hz or HDR or some other features.

What customers say about "Features"
Marantz SR5011 7.2 Channel Network Audio/Video Surround Receiver with Bluetooth
  • Set up is easy and the self calibration works well.
  • Features a game mode to disable adding input lag
  • Good 1080p upscaler, great for legacy sources like Wii connected over component video
  • Supports DTS:X and Dolby Atmos
  • Spotify Connect is a convenient feature and normally works
  • The audessy procedure is actually quite painful because it takes so long for it to go through all the steps.
  • The operating manual is not particularly user-friendly.
  • The only negative I can site is that some of the options are not on screen, they appear only in the little display.
Marantz SR5012 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD Network AV Surround Receiver with HEOS, Black
  • My home is mostly automated so I can ask Alexa to watch the living room tv and the Marantz turns on, along with the other equipment I need.
  • You can control volume, and inputs with voice commands as well.
  • The amp also allows you to use it as a pre-amp as well so if you need more power or want better amplification later on, you can do this easily.
  • Their Android application does not work on Samsung Note 8 with latest software.
  • All network services like spotify, airplay, Internet radio stop working after a minute or so and I am on wired ethernet. No problems with any other devices I have.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Marantz SR5011 7.2 Channel Network Audio/Video Surround Receiver with Bluetooth
  • Being able to wireless-ly play music from my iPhone, iPad or laptop is very handy... especially for parties or when having some company over
  • 8 HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs, all supporting the latest HDMI standards
  • One thing I noticed and need to work on is the WiFi, seemed to take long to find my cable modem so being impatient I just ran a lan cable.
  • No power outlets on the back for plugging in a sub to automatically turn off
Marantz SR5012 7.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD Network AV Surround Receiver with HEOS, Black
  • 8 point audessey channel calibration. This seems great but I didn't proceed with the calibration as the only input I had working was cable tv.
  • They sound great. Many options on this AVR and enjoy the Spotify connection along with Heos.
  • HEOS is great!!! Sounds way better than anything connected via toslink or hdmi.
  • ARC and CEC does not work consistently or at least I cannot find any logic in how it works.
  • Switching between inputs is painfully slow and goes through a black screen.
