Marantz SR5010 review & specs

Marantz SR5010: a high-level receiver with perfect Bluetooth and Wi-Fi

Marantz SR5010

The Marantz SR5010 is a device that has a pure direct mode, a dual-zone capability, and presents amazing modern features. Among the great Marantz SR5010 specs, the unit conquers me with the smartphone remote control option. It definitely has reliable assembly and high-quality details, but the weight of a construction is rather objectionable – 22.1 pounds.

Design

The Marantz SR5010 has a laconic and modern design. The volume controller and input selector are placed on the front side of the device. All other knobs have accurate style and transform into an additional decoration of receiver. The small screen has white letters that are hard to see from a great distance. The remote is lightweight and really compact. It has a standard set of buttons, which are performed from the high-quality rubber and do not stick.

Characteristics

The AirPlay seems very unstable. I have to reset the Marantz to fix the problem. 40 preset FM stations are enough for enjoying the music and the Internet radio can become additional entertainment source. Due to the Bluetooth streaming services, it is possible to listen to the music exactly from smartphone, tablet or any portable player. Pandora, SiriusXM, and Spotify Connect also greatly cooperate with the Marantz SR5010.

Performance

The device freezes occasionally, especially, when I use Internet radio. Such a problem disappeared after successful firmware updating. The Wi-Fi works without problems. The Marantz SR5010 review may be very useful also for gaming console owners because such a device is able to fill the gaming process with adorable sound and full immersion into the atmosphere.

Sound Quality

I can use a device to fill the room with 7.2 surround sound from a Blu-Ray and then alter to a DVD with stereo sound. The Marantz SR5010 works great with my 5 Ascend acoustics speakers and shows no variance between HD audio and simple MP3 tracks. The sound is wise, with amazing depth. It is great for movies, especially for a moment with great emotional basis. The bass from the Rotel proc/amp is worthy of special attention because it impressed me greatly.

Connectivity

2 HDMI outputs work great and they are enough for most basic tasks. 8 HDMI inputs are placed on the rare side of the unit and all of them have no problems with functionality. Every connector has its own designation. Moreover, they are placed in a very compact way and such a peculiarity doesn’t have a bad influence on the using process. The cords are greatly fit the plugs. I don’t notice any signal disruptions.

Setup

I can adjust the output of each speaker. Different speaker combination settings make the installing process really easy. The on-screen guide helps do the setting quick and without mistakes. Additional information is presented in a manual. Calibration is performed without great interference of the user.

Conclusion

The device is a great choice for those, who need a reliable receiver that will perform all the entertainment tasks, please with a great sound and picture, pleasantly surprise with Internet services and have many inputs and outputs. One thing I have to mention: after a long working day the receiver’s box can become hot.
