The SR6003 is a most advanced AV receiver offered by Marantz that is not THX Select2 certified.  This surround sound system is geared for someone looking for a great sounding system, and are willing to put a bit of money towards high quality equipment.  The front panel is the first sign of the intent of this receiver; quality sound and video. It is made from a combination of aluminum extrusion and glass-reinforced resin which protects the inner circuitry and absorbes internal and external resonance, and it only features three control knobs to make it as simple, and elegant looking as possible. The interior design includes an engineered linear power supply specially chosen capacitors, and follows Marantz tradition by mounting all audio circuits on seperate circuit board for maximum isolation and minimum interference. Also, digital and analog circuits have been delegated to their on sections of the audio board. The seven in-line channels have 100 watts of power each giving ample power. The Texas Instruments micro-processor allows compatibility with high quality digital audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD in high resolution and Master Audio implementation, DSD and Dolby Digital among others.  The included Audyssey MultEQ allows you to modify the sound for up to six individual seats, as well as performing various auto-configurations to optimize the soundfield. The MDAX (Marantz Dynamic Audio eXpander)  performs dynamic analysis of compressed signals, such as MP3 or AM/FM, and recreates the missing high frequency spectrum for enhanced sound. The front panel USB input will ensure the MDAX is kept busy allowing easy access to your favorite playlists.  For audio, this unit has eight analog audio inputs, six digital inputs, three analog out and one digital out.  For video, there are three HDMI inputs, all of which are version 1.3 capable, two HDMI outs, three component inputs, five S-video and five composite inputs, as well as two outputs for component, S-video and composite.  Analog video sources can be converted to 480i up to 1080i to the resolution of your choice thanks to th i-Chips Technology converter.  The various video outputs as well as the analog and digital Zone 2 audio outputs make the SR5003 a starting point to running a whole house entertainment system.  Other features include a backlit remote control, lock out front panel and options such as the eight HDMI input VS3002 or satellite radio adaptor.
