Audiophile DACs, bass management, and 7ch inputs
I bought it from eBay as open box. It surpassed my expectation with its audiophile grade stereo DACs, sounds better than Oppo BD105 DAC. I appreciate the 7ch direct analog inputs for multichannel SACD and the nice bass management present features. Remote could be better.

Leaves much to be desired.
This pre-pro has 4 ways to control and configure but neither of them work 100%. The remote control is worthless. The onscreen display has never worked with my Sony xbr85x850g Bravia. The "2016" Android app can only control and configure half of the menus. You have to pay for the app to configure timing through audessey. You can access the web page of the device to configure other aspects. Time to update your Apps Marantz get rid of the dead weight app developers and hire a team that can develop a single utility to perform all features from an single environment. The app is something I'd expect out of a budget product not a high end $2500 prepro. I would like to be contacted personally to discuss the lack of management and configuration capability.
