Our top seller and brand choice for a surround sound receiver is the Marantz. Marantz is part of the Denon family, is extremely reliable, and has been part of our product line for decades. Marantz has the capability to adapt to whole-home audio through Denon’s new networked amplifier similar to Sonos. Our top seller is the Marantz SR 5014 but they have multiple models based on speaker configurations. The brands we have reviewed, installed for years, and prefer are the Marantz, Integra, Denon, and Onkyo. Ask Greg, our showroom manager, for details and suggestions based on your setup.
