Onkyo 605 or Marantz 5001


Standard Member
My old reciever has died and i need a new one to give me sound as my telly doesnt have speakers attached sigh.

I have a pioneer 436XDE(?) and Pioneer speakers (cant remember model).
I have been looking at the Onkyo 605 as a replacement but having spoken to two dealers they dont recon that the added features are worth it a and that I would be better going for a Marantz SR5001 instead.

Your opinions would be very much appreciated in this matter. Which of these two should I plump for or is there another you could advise on. Are they trying to get rid of an older model by poo-pooing a newer one?

Many thanks for your time in this matter,



Yep, you got it they will be stuck with those SR5001 unless they can unload them now go with the 605 preferably from a different dealer

Many thanks for the reply. With a budget of £500, would my options be any different in relation to what to buy?
