A peerless processor
In the last ten years I have tried processors made by all of the well-known brands. All of them fell short, in one way or another. Finally, in spite of the high cost, I decided to try this unit. Nothing else has even come close to the performance of this device. It is superb in every respect.

The Receiver is an amazing one..!!
I bought the receiver back when it first came out in 2018', with the promise of said "Future Proofing", meaning that they'd have the HDMI 2.1 upgrade option in by 2020'. It's now 2021' and according to many Marantz dealers, the upgrade got lost in Covid-19 issues and not worth focusing one one receiver. I was told the other day that Marantz is extremely back ordered with other receiver orders and the AV8805 isn't on there list and it's not worth the money to invest in the upgrade. I've always been a Marantz fan and I feel misled and there's nothing I can do about it..

An exceptional pre-amp for HDMI (and other inputs
I needed a pre-amplifier that would accept HDMI inputs, as I use my high end sound system not only for music, but for videos and gaming as well. This works exceptionally well, and the sound quality is awesome!

Note - since I purchased this, Marantz released a newer and more affordable AV7706, which may also be worth considering.

Best I’ve had!
I’ve owned a few preamp processors over the years and the Marantz AV8805 is the best! Very easy to set up to almost any configuration and sound quality that’s 2nd to none!

Very good processor- could be great.
Very good sound and features. Disappointing lack of flexibility with regard to crossover settings and lask of availability to select slopes. The number of available frequencies should be significantly increased as well.

Marantz AV8805
Cannot get it to work with my DAC or Roon. I have contacted you. While you suggested it works on its own, I have not had any success. Very frustrating. Bought it in August.

8805 Just Works
The 8805 is my second AVR from Marantz. These AVRs provide exceptional connectivity and are able to accept all the audio and video formats that I need.
