This is the flagship AV receiver under Marantz’s 05 series of AV receivers which includes the SR6005 and SR5005 (which are substantially cheaper). They all spot the newer HDMI 1.4a where the SR7005 has five HDMI input ports on the rear and three output ports. Setup is amazingly simple and direct and is almost plug and play with minimal adjustments into getting the right settings for your setup/room. Sound quality is as good as any AV receiver can be and will easily rival some pre/power setup costing up to $3,000. A major plus point with the SR7005 is its minimal use of cables. If you just have a Blu-ray player, you just need to run one HDMI cable in and that’s it. The other cables will just be your speaker wires running out to you speakers, of which you can start with 5.1 and go up to 7.1.
Cosmetically, there are some scuff marks here and there from use, nothing major. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack it for safe shipping. Manual is available online and a Marantz remote is included.
