Beast SR8012

Unboxing -

Nothing special about the design but again a soild tank.

Yes it is required someone help for taking out the beast at ease.

As usual one power cord,remote,Audyseey MIC,Stand,bluetooth and wireless detachable antennas.

Marantz standard Glamour porthole display and Full display under the flap ( Every year i was expecting that Marantz should reconsider full display to be visible without opening the flap):cool:

Looking at the AVR backside i felt something is missing !!!Yes it is Antenna connectors !!! Yes i remember now this is not AV Surround Receiver this is AV Surround Amplifier only US models has Antenna connectors.

I remember read somewhere to avoid RF interference/Noise Marantz released without Radio tuner for Asian models which i least bothered.Yes as expected it does not have FM/AM antennas.

Who already shortlisted and in a plan of buying this SR8012 have to look for depth if you have place constraints on your fixed AV Rack.It is slightly bigger in size( Depth) which is compared to my Little Master SR7011.

But i feel who already own Pioneer LX seriers ( 9.2 channel ) and yamaha Avantage series starting from 1XXX,this baby can fit thier AV rack( depth wise ).I would recommend to check the spec again.

Feature - of course everybody knows

Yes it is 11.2 channel out of box

Atmos,dts-X what not Auro3D out of box

Made in Japan

Just a peek Oh my Goodness- Mammoth toroidal transformer which is easily visible and reflects the confident to drive my 7.1.2 setup to the edge.Yes No doubt about it.

its time to update my Signature ;)

Congratulations, Thanks for updating the Rack dimensions requirements for people who are actively considering this. Hopefully you get enough time to Review this one in detail.
I'm more interested in the comparison between 7011 and 8012..
Also 8012 directly playing to speakers vs Preouts to 7055 poweramp (before you find a buyer)

You are putting me in trouble now.Finally ur idea is to push me to fall in love with that pre, power config and I have to reconsider the sale of 7055 ?which I am really afraid of. Jokes apart let me try.;)

Yes it triggered me to share the details to fm when I placed SR8012 in my existing primary setup where SR7011 is sitting.

Not surprised about this question from you and the same is expected .will try that also when time permits.

Good to know that its made in Japan.7011 may be Vietnam made l guess
Again 7011 may be burr brown DAC and 8012 Akm.How much is the difference in sound apart from power?
