The Marantz 8015 often has no sound; you have to turn it off and back on again to establish sound; it sometimes looses the video signal from our cable box; and the Bluetooth feature does not work; and the subwoofer was difficult to get to turn on. And the remote control requires several tries to mute and unmute.

SR8015 does it all for me and still affordable
Positives: Audessey setup; great 2 channel sound with sub-bass included in speaker choices provides excellent sound quality for music from analog and digital sources; online/network updates; multitude of inputs for connecting devices; independent settings for each input; on the fly adjustments allowed for sound parameters JUST PLAIN SOUNDS GREAT!

Amazing Device and Technology!
I decided after many years being a Yamaha person to go on another direction. To my surprise, I have been missing out on what having a home theater truly means!!! OMG! This SR 8015 is truly beautiful piece of tech. The sounds, the functionality and the features. I am truly amazed by the change. I also invested in Martin Logan speakers and let me tell you I do not have words to describe the change in sound in my theater. If you have the power to invest in this monster I highly recommended. It will not disappoint. I also have to give thanks to the Magnolia team in the DFW area, Without them I would've not get here!!!!!!! Please do your self a favor and buy this baby, you will not regret it. It would be nice if it has all 2.1 hdmi but with eArc support it is really a mute point. I can see why they did only one.

Great First Experience with Marantz
This replaces an Onkyo TX-NR3030. The only thing i think I'll miss about the Onkyo is that it had XLR pre-outs for the left and right channels which i had hooked up to an external amp. So far i don't think i will miss them. I'll mention some of the input sources for those who may be researching this AVR.

The setup of this unit was reallt easy using the guided on-screen commands. Audyssey setup took about 15 minutes and it does make a noticeable difference, really impressed. The option to have 2 presets for the speaker configuration is really handy. I have one preset for two channel stereo listening and the 2nd preset is for the 7.2.4 movie listening. All of the ground speakers are Definitive Technology and I plan to replace the four ceiling speakers with Def Tech's as well soon.

The remote is very basic, but the Marantz remote app for IOS is very useful. This is my first experience with HEOS and it's been great so far. It was nice to see that I can stream TIDAL using the HEOS app.

I'm not a gamer, so the HDMI 2.1 Panasonic chip issue does not really bother me and i didn't purchase the SR8015 with gaming in mind. PS5 really has no issue and there is a work around for newer XBOX's. Even though there is a work around for the new gaming consoles, Marantz has already acknowledged the issue and has stated they are working on a permanent solution. Which i was glad to see and am looking forward to.

For those who may be researching this AVR and wondering how well various sources work with it, this is what's currently used as inputs and outputs

eARC works very well when viewing and listening to the various streaming apps from a LG CX OLED. Full Dolby Atmos comes through.

For those wondering about placement, this weighs about 40 pounds and i have it on the bottom shelf of an entertainment console that has tempered glass as a shelf. I'm not worried about the weight because the Onkyo weighed 49 pounds and sat on the same shelf for 7 years. The back is open, not enclosed and there is about two inches of clearance at the top.

I'm still tweaking all the settings, but even with just the settings I've made so far it sounds great and handles all the switching wonderfully. I'm new to Marantz and i like the experience so far.

False announce 8k on Marantz
The fail with the chip of HDMI 8K. The product was announce but the chip failure and no clear path for fix is frustration. I has a TV Samsung Q7 4K 60Hz, cables HDMI 2.0b, XBOX One with support for ATMOS home theater. Bluray UDH 4K, Audio Atmos. Don´t work, I select Doby Atmos and all time return to Dolby Multichannel. some times black screen.

I really like this receiver!
It’s very nice. I wanted something more musical than my Denon 5800, Marantz really fit the bill. When paired with B&W Nautilus series speakers this thing really sings. I would recommend this unit to anyone that wants
great home theater but is also looking for amazing stereo sound.

SR8015 Delivered above & beyond my expectations
First of all I was expecting a lot from this new Marantz AVR the SR 8015, and it has delivered above and beyond my expectations. I have only been "playing" with this "beast" for the past 2 month's and I'm still learning all that this machine has to offer. I have owed many Denon products over the years starting in the late 80's and they have given me and my family many years of enjoyment, and all but one are still functioning as we speak. When I decided to update my home theater, I chose Marantz and this machine because of the many options, capabilities, build quality, and Marantz's engineering reputation of creating very beautifully sounding products. I have to admit to being in awe of Marantz since I was a young lad and exposed to them through a close friend's father who was a engineer, and audiophile. I have always wanted to own a Marantz product, and my day has finally arrived. For me a AVR is more about the sound and the reproduction of music, more than the visuals, but this machine delivers everything exceptionally well. I'm currently running a 7.2.2 configuration with a separate amp to drive the front L/R speakers, and running everything through the SR 8015. It handles all my components with ease, including my new OLED display, TiVo, Ultra HD Blu-ray, Apple TV, Turntable, Sonos connect, and Cassette Deck (only for play back. Movies, stereo, and surround sound music is absolutely stunning. I throughly enjoyed my system before the upgrade, but this Marantz product backed by their expertise, has taken my room to a whole new exciting level.
