Thumbs up Marantz DV - 7600

The Marantz DV - 7600 has received great reviews for a universal player. It plays SACD`s, DVD - A`s, CDs, and DVD - Video. It has bass management, a detachable power cord, multi - channel and 2 - channel capability, and a 3 years parts and labor warranty. And now, MusicDirect.com is selling this player for $599.99. Down from $1100.00.
Anyone had any experience or thoughts on this player?

While I haven't heard this exact unit, I am very familiar with the DV-9600 and think it is an excellent unit. Both the video and audio quality are quite good. The build quality and reliability have been first rate with all the Marantz DVD players I have had in my system. I would recommend getting it and trying it out in your system, after all that is the only way to know for sure if it will do what you want it to. Good luck.

Thank you Brian, I am considering it. The price point is hard to pass up.

deacongreg,

I have been using the Marantz DV-7600 for almost 2 years now. It is a wonderful Universal player for audiophiles without spending big bucks. Supports CD, SACD, and, DVD-Audio. Multi-channel, bass management, speaker configuration. Build construction is top notch. Video quality is also top notch. Audio quality is definatly high-end. I believe SACD is kept in native DSD until DAC conversion (no DSD-to-PCM conversions).

What's missing? It supports up to 1080 video format but does not do video upconversion of DVDs. Also my unit supports HDMI but not the newer HDMI 1.3 (with digital audio carried out on HDMI cable for conversion by the preamp). Switching between digital out (for audio) and analog out takes several button clicks to navigate the onscreen menus (could have been made a little easier).

I would summarize the Marantz as one of the best values for Universal players in terms of quality prior to the advent of the Blu-ray HD-DVD formats.
The Oppo universal players may be a little cheaper but they don't do audio like the Marantz and not even close in build quality.

CaliFan,

That is just great. Thank you for the info. I`m in the process of building a new system from the beginning. So, I need a good "universal" as a source. I`m not in favor of the format war, so I`m not buying a Blu - Ray or HD DVD player right now.

Thank you.
