abunda_amazon_reviews This Preamp is very nice. It's not the greatest but it's very good. I dont think it's worth full retail price but if you can get it on sale then its value increases. Its future proof with the EXCEPTION of HDMI 2.1.... Marantz will update the AV8805 to hdmi 2.1 when its available but not the AV7705. So the 8805 may be a better option if you plan on needing 48gps hdmi in the future. I got mine refurbished so I figure if I really need hdmi 2.1 in a couple years I'll sell it and buy the newer model. It passes 4k and has all the current codecs.... I paired mine with a Monolith 7.... and also tried an Integra DTA-70.1 9 channel amp. Probably would have been just as happy with a standard AVR instead of separates because I cant hear a difference in my 7.2 setup from my old Onkyo TX-NR3008.;;Reviewed in the United States on April 11, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Pretty paired with AC Infinity;;LiquidSteam;;/gp/customer-reviews/R2Z9QLR79X89H8/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B07GVN4YV2;;;Update: I’m still very unhappy with the way Amazon handled (didn’t handle) this replacement request, but I did purchased another a new AV7705 from a competitor. I plugged it into the rack with the existing interconnects and BINGO. This new preamp works like a charm. Granted, the first unit had a defective Right Surround Channel module; but the the replacement works great. I really like the amp! The only shortcoming with this unit that I have found is it requires the front door to be opened to display the current sound format. The AVR IOS app provides this info, but I’d prefer to see it displayed on the front of the unit — not hidden behind a door. Bought a Marantz 6015 that had a terrible hum from a ground loop. Decided to upgrade to the 7705 with balanced outputs. Amazon took care of me and shipped the 7705 and I paid the difference. The hum vanished with the 7705, but after having my surround speakers installed, we realized the Surround Right channel on the 7705 Marantz was dead. Amazon has decided they can't replace it without a 4 day review and asked me why I waited 3 weeks to call it in as defective.

I purchased the matching power amp and my system is articulate, rich and dynamic. The AV Pre and power amp replaced a Pioneer Elite 84 txsi receiver that I purchased in 2007. When I purchased the Elite I also bought a pair of Klipsch RF82’s, Paradigm monitors for the rear and a Velodyne sub. The sound was good, but not great. I was constantly making adjustments over the years. I installed the AV 7705 & MM 7725 power amp and retained my speakers. Wow! I haven’t done anything else. I didn’t run the calibration routine because it sounds too good as it is. My intentions were to replace the MM 7708 later on with a McIntosh M205 but I’m not sure I need to. The only negative is HEOS. The software on the AV won’t show my TIDAL playlist, saved artist, mixes, etc. The HEOS phone app is clunky and slow but at least it will show my saved stuff.
