"...the Marantz SR8015 is a top-quality AV receiver that takes the listening experience to unprecedented heights."
"When you consider all these aspects of Marantz, you can choose this product with confidence. It comes with many more advanced functions and features than its predecessor SR8012. The positive feedback of the users reiterates this conclusion without an iota of doubt. This is a truly impressive flagship receiver and the best you can find."
- Vivek Sehgal, Home Theater Partners, September 20, 2020
"Marantz took an already excellent AVR and made it better. In fact, as far as 11CH receivers go, I'd say the SR8015 is king of the hill at the moment. It has a solid amplification section that would make most separates enthusiasts think twice. The preamp section is among the best I've ever measured from an AV receiver and the SR8015 comes armed with one of the best and most up to date HDMI 2.1 platforms in the business. The fact that the SR8015 has virtually every current surround format and post processing covered and plans for future updates (DTS:X Pro) should give skeptics worries about obsolescence some security so they can rest well at night that this product will be in their reference system for many years to come."
"The Marantz SR8015 is a wonderful sounding, high performance one box separates-like solution that will satiate the audiophile and home theater enthusiast alike."
