Marantz SR5013: the main advantages and disadvantages

Marantz SR5013

I’ve already managed to test one of the most controversial receivers in the market — Marantz SR5013 and I decided to write this Marantz SR5013 review in order to make your life easier. I understand that it could be difficult to choose whether you have to buy this gadget. At first glance, it’s a powerful receiver, which can produce 4K video at home but what about the sound quality? Is it really great? So, let’s figure out the main Marantz SR5013 specs to avoid problems in the future.

Design

The design of this receiver is quite similar to other products in this market. However, I really keen on the symmetry of this receiver. The top cover looks very stylish. It’s really great that the developers invest money in a great design even despite the fact that their clients usually look at this receiver only several times a year. The size of this receiver is standard (22.1 pounds). In addition, I would like to admit that the design of the remote controller is quite intuitive and there is no need to use instructions in order to understand what you should push in order to get the appropriate result.

Characteristics

Marantz created the special controller, which you can use at any time via your phone. Just load the application and solve your problem forever. This app is well-optimized and it’s compatible not only with leading mobile phones such as iPhone Xs or Samsung Note 9 but also with Samsung S3 or Xiaomi. In addition, there is a multi-room function, which makes the user experience better and more comfortable.

Performance

As I have already mentioned, this receiver is really powerful because it maintains 3D movies and 4K picture quality without any problems. I didn’t manage to notice the overheating, that’s why do not worry about this aspect. Furthermore, you can listen to music via the Internet (it connects to Wi-Fi as well) with the help of this receiver or connect your phone to this device via Bluetooth. In fact, I don’t think that there any problems connected with performance if we are talking about Marantz SR5013.

Sound Quality

I strongly don’t recommend you to use low-quality files because the sound quality will be significantly lower. If you keen on listening to loud music, you can even figure out that there are strange noises in the background, which can irritate customers. However, I’m almost sure that this problem is common for all receivers without the ASR technology. In other instances, if you use high-quality discs or files, the sound quality will be really great and pure.

Connectivity

There are a lot of ports and HDMI cables, USB ports and even the phone connector. You can share files via Bluetooth and use the Internet. However, keep in mind that it could be difficult to connect to your Wi-Fi. For example, I’ve managed to do this only after several attempts. In addition, I was a bit disappointed that it’s not compatible with Alexa or at least Google assistant. Of course, it’s not the most important feature of a good receiver, but I think that this bonus can convince some people to buy this receiver right now. Unfortunately, the developers don’t provide this opportunity.

Setup

It was a bit difficult to set up this receiver. It could be connected with the fact that I had to reconnect the previous receiver and only after that, turn this on. However, in most cases, this process takes only 15-20 minutes. In this instance, I had to spend 40 minutes. Pay attention! Printed manuals, which you can find in the box aren’t clear enough and I can recommend you to look for great tutorials on YouTube in order to avoid problems from the very beginning.

Conclusion

Marantz SR5013 is not so popular cheap receiver, but it’s still a great product, which can become an important part of your daily life. Of course, it could be a bit difficult to set it up, but it’s a reliable, stylish, and compatible with other devices receiver, which can please your day-to-day needs.
