Home theater with an emphasis on sound

Just because your home theater is made for movies doesn't mean music should take a backseat. Marantz knows how to do audio right, and their SR5008 home theater receiver will make music and movies sound rich, detailed, and dynamic while delivering plenty of power for a 7.2-channel system. With network capability, Apple AirPlay, and loads of connections, you'll never be at a loss for entertainment choices. Whether you're powering surround sound speakers in your home theater or stereo speakers in a second room, the SR5008 will open up your ears to those subtle details of your music and movie soundtracks.

Get connected with wireless streaming and AirPlay

When you connect the SR5008 to your home network, you'll open up a whole new world of listening options. This receiver has built-in support for free Internet radio, Pandora®, and subscription services like Spotify® and SiriusXM. If you have a Wi-Fi® router, then take advantage of AirPlay compatibility for streaming music from an iPhone®, iPad®, or a computer running iTunes®. Access your entire digital music collection from the palm of your hand with your Apple® device. Or stream audio from any AirPlay-compatible app — like YouTube™ or MOG — to the SR5008 for playback over your home theater speakers. You can also stream music from PCs and select Android™ devices with DLNA-compatibility. AirPlay requires a wireless home network and a wired connection between the receiver and network.

The SR5008's easy setup wizard walks you through the initial connections and settings.

Built on sound principles

When building audio/video components, Marantz pays careful attention to those little details that make the difference between good and superb performance. The proprietary Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module (HDAM) improves dynamic range and detail while minimizing noise to bring your music to life. A high-current power supply and direct mode further ensure you get the most out of your favorite tunes. High-quality 24-bit/192kHz digital-to-analog converters can decode the latest high-resolution formats — even FLAC, WAV, and Apple Lossless files streamed wirelessly. If you're streaming low-bitrate files like MP3s, Marantz's Dynamic Audio eXpander improves sound quality by adding more depth to these compressed formats. 

Choose your speaker setup

With the SR5008's "power amp assign" feature, you'll have several options for speaker setup tailored to your gear. Use all seven channels in your home theater for room-filling 7.2-channel surround sound. Or reassign the "surround back" channels to power stereo speakers in a second room while still enjoying 5.2-channel sound in your main zone. Or use them to bi-amp your compatible front speakers for even better audio performance.
