Marantz DV-12S1 DVD-A/V Player
Introduction In the moderately recent days when Marantz was owned by Philips, the company released two high-end players that were intended to be direct equivalents of one anotherr: one was a Super-Audio CD player (SACD), and the other, the DV-12S1, was a DVD player capable not only of DVD-Video playback, but also replay of the latest high-resolution DVD-Audio (DVD-Audio) discs. With the Marantz equipment of this period, the higher the quality of the unit, the lower the model number, and the DV-12S1 is as low as the numbers get. The first thing you notice about the DV-12S1 is how heavy it is. The unit is big and solid, and has a large footprint – it’s nearly 16 inches deep and weighs 29 pounds. The unit itself has curved corners, in keeping with much of the Marantz gear, and elegantly complements their other equipment. The build quality overall is excellent. The rear panel includes an S-video output, ...

Marantz RC5200 Learning Remote Control
Introduction With the increasing complexity of modern home theater systems, it’s vital to have a good method of controlling all the components. Of course, many systems these days come with remotes that can handle more than one device – the one you just bought plus another, such as TV and DVD player – but before long, you find you have a whole bunch of remotes on the coffee table, and while you yourself might be able to work out what extensive combination of devices is required to switch on the TV, set it to the component input, power up the receiver, set that to the correct input, and switch on the DVD player, the chances of your girlfriend being able to manage it are minimal (not because she's female, but because she didn’t put the system together and therefore doesn't know anything about it). The answer is a single learning and/or programmable remote control. ...

Marantz SR7200 Receiver
Introduction At a suggested price of just $849.99 US, the Marantz SR7200 AV Surround Receiver offers excellent value for money, with impressive power (six channels x 105 watts into eight ohms), high-resolution D/A converters, and a wealth of surround features,- plus an excellent sound almost indistinguishable from the company’s more expensive offerings. Installation and Setup Modern AV receivers are getting more and more complex. As this receiver can handle a 6.1 surround system with dual zone/dual source capability, the Marantz SR7200 has more ins and outs than most. But once you’re armed with the 30-page (per language) manual, and a clearly labeled rear panel, installation and configuration are entirely straightforward. There’s a fold-out rear panel diagram in the book, and a list with good descriptions of where everything’s supposed to go. Loudspeaker connections, of which there are several, six main (system A) outputs including surround (rear) center for the main system and a stereo pair of system B ...
