Marantz SR6010 AV Receiver £499 petertyson

Found 9th Jun 2016
Forget May madness.
It's now jolly nice June.

£499 last chance to buy I guess. Stock clear out.


Great sound. I don't use atmos or dts x, but all the latest updates are available to download easily.

Bluetooth connection works well.

Negative points. Not so impressed with the app. But might try again.

Other niggle. If I do video pass through you can't see volume level on screen anymore.

But sound is superb.

Great price, cheapest around I suppose.

Marantz SR6010, a 9.2-channel amp capable of 110W per channel. Atmos 5.1.4 is supported here, as well as DTS:X and Neural:X 9.1.

As well as the same number of HDMI inputs and outputs and support for a Zone 2, there are 13.2-channel preouts and a 7.1-channel external input. There's also Audyssey MultEQ calibration.
Tempted and looks a good deal on paper... would this destroy my slightly aging Yamaha RX-v765 or would I be wondering why I bothered though, that's the question!

Any idea where might be good to audition one in central london, RS?
Very good price. Went into richer sounds today to buy the denon x3200 (I wanted hdmi zone 2). They had none left, or in warehouse, so they offered pioneer vsx1311 for £525 (then pay extra for warranty). Came home and saw this and just bought it. I already have the marantz pm6005 so I recon this should be very good also.
If anyone is still interested in this its now £599 but use code on website to bring it back down to £499. I've had this for a week now and its very good. Also most everything can be customised e.g what is shown on the front when you are watching diff. sources; xbox one, sky, ps4,chromecast etc (although the text is very small and it doesn't have the bigger screen under the 'hood' so quite difficult to read but then again you should know what source you are on!). Also there is no led screen on the remote and i thought it did but again not a problem. My only issue is you cannot change the volume increments, defaulted to 0.5, and I wish I could change this to increase/decrease in increments of 2/3. Also I have to turn on sky before the amp otherwise no sound, abit of a pain as i normally turn the amp on first and then the diff. sources.
I am very temping to buy it. I was looking for Denon avr-x 4200 but this would be a good deal..
