Features

Regarding Marantz SR6011 specs the 9.2-channel Marantz SR6011 receiver provides options for using object-oriented 3D sound formats DTS: X and Dolby Atmos. Thanks to 9 amplifiers, which are based on discrete HDAM modules with current feedback, 7.1.2 and 5.1.4-channel configurations are available without the use of additional amplification. The device is equipped with 11.2-channel Pre Out, which allows you to connect an additional stereo-power and build a 7.1.4-channel system. The receiver uses selected components, provides 185 W (6 Ohms) per channel and even copes with a 4-ohm load, and there is an eco-mode for rational power consumption.

Design and build

The facade of the case consists of an aluminum center and plastic sidewalls. A round FL display is installed in the center, a volume knob on the right, and an input selector on the left. Under the cover there are function buttons, a headphone jack, an HDMI input, USB for external drives, a mini-jack for calibration microphone and a set of AV connectors.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • The extra speakers help, to be certain, but the sound just seems a bit nicer
  • The display passthrough stuff with HDMI doesn't seem to add a lot of display lag

Cons

  • Remote is kind of cruddy. It feels kind of flimsy and isn't very ergonomic in my opinion
