Marantz has announced two new home theater receivers featuring high power output, advanced inputs, Internet content options and Apple AirPlay compatibility.

The SR6006 ($1,1999) is a 110-Watt per channel receiver with seven HDMI v1.4a inputs. The receiver is DLNA v1.5 certified (Digital Living Network Alliance) for accessing content from other DLNA drives and devices and includes front USB ports and built-in streaming for services such as  Pandora, Rhapsody, Napster, Flickr and Internet radio stations. In additioin to a standard AM/FM turner is a HD Radio tuner. The receiver features three zones for multiroom audio use.

The 100 Watt per channel SR5006 is similar to the SR6006 but offers no HD Radio turn and is limited to two-zone audio networking.

Both the Marantz SR6006 and SR5006 are Bluetooth capable home theatre receivers that can access Bluetooth devices (cell phones, tablets) when uses with a Marantz RX101 Bluetooth receiver ($99.99).

The systems both include and easy onscreen “Setup Wizard” which guides the user through steps that include language select, loudspeaker connection, loudspeaker calibration, plus Dynamic Volume/EQ settings, source setup and more.


receivers support audio bit-streams up to 320kbps, and feature the latest Dolby Pro Logic llz, Dolby TrueHD, and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding. Additionally, both models accept LPCM 7.1 signals from a Blu-ray Disc player and have DC Triggers and RS232C.

Reason #36 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:

I read Widescreen Review because it’s simply the best A/V magazine available. No other magazine includes such a comprehensive discussion of developments and potential developments in the field, as well as a detailed analysis of systems and products available. Widescreen Review provides thorough and easy-to-follow “how to” sections in building and setting up home theatre and is the definitive authority on quality DVDs. No other magazine can beat all that. Kudos to Widescreen Review! I will never stop my subscription.
