Yamaha RX-A1010 vs Marantz SR6006?


Hi Everyone,

I needed a bit of help choosing between Yamaha RX-A1010 and Marantz SR6006. Would listen to music and watch movies in the ratio 50-50 (basically trying to get the best of both worlds ). I wouldn't mind shelling out a little more if its worth the money. Looking at 7 channel specifically. Kindly put in your thoughts/feedback on the above products (or any other from Marantz and Yamaha)

Thanks

What he(Spirovious) said ... and very well known fact here that marantz is good for music

A Yamaha owner like me would be very much inclined on a Yamaha Aventage Series I have only heard Marantz 6006 once for about 15 minutes during my audition tour around my city and heard the 1010 for about an hour which surely appealed to me.. Features are dependent on your requirement/ need and future plans . Also check for service centers if you can get any for Marantz .. Yamaha's got a Service center in almost every major city I think..
Have an audition for your final verdict is my suggestion...

Re: Yamaha RX-A1010 vs Marantz SR6006?

for Movies:Music 50:50 definitely Yamaha. The Aventage series even better. On other thoughts it also depends on the speakers you will be using. based on my auditions and listening experience Yamahas have a slightly bright sound signature as compared to Marantzs, i.e. Marantz sounds more laid back and warm. Aventage might be a little more warm sounding. But pairing it with some warm sounding/laid back speakers should be a good combo.

Re: Yamaha RX-A1010 vs Marantz SR6006?

Aventage series are a very refined & neutral sounding, Marantz 6006 would sound bright compared to it, so 1st decide what speakers you will pair & 2nd take demo of the pairing after which you finalise on which you like more.

For 50:50 ratio, both AVR's are good so either way you will be winner

I will be pairing this with mains (left and right) with B&W DM603. I am planning to buy B&W center speakers too. Yet to decide on surround speakers

hehehe.. I might have to agree to this ... because me and another forum member were auditioning the pair of Klipsch Rf-82s which I own now they were harsh when played with Denon and not so much while singing for a Yamaha RX-A1010 in a different room ....but we blamed it on the glass wall entirely... but going back to the first time I went the speakers were auditioned using a Yamaha and they were not so harsh in the same glass wall setting. I assumed I remembered wrongly .. but may be not

I bumped into this link Yamaha RX-A2010 vs Yamaha RX-A1010 vs Marantz SR6006

It appears that Yamaha is more feature loaded as compared to Marantz. No 3d in marantz as well. Thoughts on the other features??
