"It’s not often that you can describe an AV receiver as ‘elegant’ but that’s exactly what the SR6008 is – although that’s no surprise as Marantz has been crafting the best-looking receivers on the market for years."

"What also makes the SR6008 incredibly easy to use is the remote. At first glance it’s more like a Blu-ray remote, avoiding the button gridlock you get from most AVR zappers – there’s space around each key and the labels are full words, not cryptic abbreviations."

"After spending a few days in its company, we’ve fallen in love with the SR6008 in a big way. It’s a beautiful-sounding receiver, reproducing our favourite movies and music with spine-tingling sophistication and blistering power….Dynamic shifts are expertly handled too."

"But that’s what’s so impressive about the SR6008’s sound – even when it’s flexing its considerable muscles during a hyperactive action scene, everything sounds smooth and controlled. There’s excitement in spades but your ears don’t take a battering at loud volumes. That’s the Holy Grail right there."

"And true to form, Marantz tops off this terrific performance with stunning stereo music playback."

Verdict "The SR6008 is a fantastic receiver in every respect, offering killer sound, extensive features and a slick operating system."
