    Simply does not work. I just bought last years Marantz model SR5014 a month ago. I downloaded this app like it says to do and have yet after one month to be able to connect to my amp. The app asks you to send in the info of your AVR if this happens but when you click on the part that is supposed to list the amp you are having issues with, the list is empty.. This app is 100% useless. However the one thing this app does excel at is draining your phone battery if you leave it running.. Horrible!

  2. Kiet Lu-avatar

    Kiet Lu


    Most of the time the app can't find my AV-8802A. I have my cat 6 internet cable hooked directly to the pre-amp plus a Google WIFI near me and still have intermittent issues both iPhone Xs and Samsung Note 8. I saw the other reviews and thought those were spams but OMG they are real. I spent $2,500 for a pre-amp and the app doesn't work most of the time. Marantz, you need to have this fixed. This is the year 2020 not 1920.

  3. José Padrón-avatar

    José Padrón


    App lacks the feature of changing Bass between “LFE” & “LFE+Main” on the Options menu. Doesn't show advance info of the current format played. Useless background service, app remains always open consuming phone resources with annoying notification advising it. Sometimes when opening, the screen would remain blank, you need to restart it for the AVR to be loaded on the screen. Navigation on the Sound Modes "Movie, Music, Game, Pure” without any selection stops the audio. 2016?

  4. Art M-avatar

    I am greatly disappointed with this app. It is user unfriendly and the access to all options and settings is very convoluted. It feels like I am using state of the art hardware with outdated user interface.

  5. Izuku Modoriya-avatar

    Izuku Modoriya


    worst app... constantly fails to connect with AVR then when you select Can not find AVR, the next step to submit logs requires you to select an AVR from a list of AVRs that you can't find. doh!

  6. Allen Siegel-avatar

    Allen Siegel


    Just loaded this app on phone. This app sucks. So glitchy cannot rely on it at all. Had to unpair because when not even using the app it caused the settings to jump around and kept switching receiver to the heos mode.

  7. M Prestridge-avatar

    1 Sep 2020: As of the latest update, app still runs in the background and chews through battery unless you remember to force stop it. If I could rate 0 stars I would.

    Bad. Not only is this app difficult to navigate, it's pretty glicthy. I'm really surprised that it sucks so bad; I spent quite a bit of cash on the receiver I use it for... The navigation is whatever, but, the crashes and whatnot are the weighted element of this 1 star rating. The HEOS app is only marginally better. Samsung Note 9... Android version 10

  12. Tom Rietzler-avatar

    Tom Rietzler


    This app is an insult to all the sound engineers that have worked on a wonderful product. How can the app be so neglected? We are talking about a premium product here, I'm expecting the app to be as good as the product itself, it's part of the experience, especially nowadays!

  13. Brendon-avatar



    This app uses around 50% of your phone's battery life even when background activity is limited. How they haven't fixed this is for years is a joke. Get another amp brand, they don't care once you've bought the device

  14. Nick Shreeve-avatar

    The last update completely removed my ability to connect to the Receiver, which, while in the past has been far from perfect, at least provided me with some form of functionality.

  15. Marcus Wiborn-avatar

    Marcus Wiborn


    This must be the worst app I have ever tried. Not sure if it is the app itself or just very poor connectivity/integration towards the receiver. Hopefully Marantz will take all these negative reviews and fix the problems!

  16. Jennifer Ahrens-avatar

    Jennifer Ahrens


    Pretty much useless. Freezes for extended periods and if it does work, it is not connecting to my AVR and freezes again trying to fix it. Cannot believe this app has not been addressed yet.

  17. Stefan Konstantinov-avatar

    Stefan Konstantinov


    This app should be banned using name Marantz. No way to connect my 2019 receiver. Please rename it to "Efficient drain battery" , "Mobile phone heater" or something like that. And you will receive only 5 stars reviews

    Another remote app that does not function properly the most of the time--if at all. (Recently, it does not connect to my AVR at all--useless!) Mobile apps are how people connect with their digital media. It's been that way for quite a few years. If you can't deliver a solid experience via mobile (and from the reviews I see, you fail miserably), then you're doomed as a company--and I won't shed any tears.

  27. Milos Djordjevich-avatar

    I can't even believe the app is so bad. It doesn't find settings and controls are very choppy. Judging by the ratings Denon and Marantz group couldn't care less about costumer opinion. I feel like I'm wasting my time writing this review. Shame, absolute shame company claiming to be leader to use app operating like its 2010.

  28. Mike Kelly-avatar

    Mike Kelly


    This app needs a redesign from the ground, up. I paid 3500 dollars for my SR-8015. The app should be on par with the quality of the receiver, yet 500 dollar sony and pioneers have better mobile functionality.

  29. Tony Hersh-avatar

    Tony Hersh


    The only app I have that drains my battery. I even restricted its use in the background. Last night my AV7705 updated, and today the app showed as being used for over 3 hours in the foreground! Get it together. I'll be a tester for you. Open up an API. Anything but this! This is ridiculous for such an expensive PrePro in 2020. I might even give it 2 stars, but it's also the slowest launching app on my phone. I feel like I could make a tasker profile that would work better.

  30. Daniel Hajduch-avatar

    Daniel Hajduch


    This application is good when it works, but occasional crashes are frustrating. I would expect a bit modern design too. But the worst thing is app behavior in the background, it can easily eat your battery so keep an eye on it. Even if you quit the app it still running in the background. For example last time it runs 14 hours and uses over 40% of my battery. Worst behavior I have seen till today.

    Mostly works and doesn't crash too often, but what is extremely annoying is responsiveness, or should I say total lack of it. App is very slow to load menus and submenus, it's barely usable... Tap something and you usually wait between 2 and 10 seconds to open it, and it's not the phone that is slow, it's the app, it's like that on high end phones

  33. Pascal van der Heiden-avatar

    Pascal van der Heiden


    It works sometimes but often needs to be forced closed and restarted. It is very very slow (takes like 10-20 seconds before it displays or updates information) both on my samsung tab and my brand new samsung galaxy S10. I work in IT so I'm sure it is not my network or devices, this is an issue with the app or the SR5013.

  34. xMondas King-avatar

    xMondas King


    Follow all the instructions but still won't able to make it to work with my SR6014. Can't detected the reciever at all really disapponted. I try it on my cell phone and tablet nothing work. It is a complete waste of time. Even the troubleshoot / help didn't work try to answer the first question can't select anything or type anything. The R&D department really need to work on this. I previous own the onkyo reciever. Their app is way way way better.

    Can't even change the Sound pref from say Dolby to Stereo using the app. The navigation is badly designed. under functional app. useless.

    Lol Nope


    This App is so slow its nearly unbearable. Its absolutely ridiculous for static IP'd hosts to wait approximately 1 minute for the app to load and finally let you select your device. App is getting slower with each update. I can't believe Marantz can claim such a high price for such a terrible user experience.

  37. Bobby Nelson-avatar

    Bobby Nelson


    Works a lot better than these ratings would lead you to believe. I'm using it with an SR6013. I was able to configure some audio settings for Netflix and Amazon coming from my tv via ARC, which is difficult with just the remote because there isn't an osd. Edit- It does frequently have a hard time connecting to the receiver.

  38. Richard Hartley-avatar

    Richard Hartley


    The app is good albeit a bit basic. The main issue is the battery drainage when it is running in the background. Have to rely on my phone warning me its excessive use of the cpu to get it to force it to clear.

  39. Aman Singh-avatar

    Aman Singh


    Been trying to use it for years. App is horrible. Will not ever buy Marantz again. I put receiver on static ip and use my phone browser to control it. Very basic but I don't need much. App sucks, always has.. Always will.

  40. Michal Markø-avatar

    Frustratingly slow, often doesn't respond for a while, poor user interface, battery killer at the background.. There is so much potential in an app like this but unfortunately the execution is very unfortunate.

    So bad. Hardly ever works, crashes, drains battery. Surely there is an alternative app to control Marantz amps??

  42. Ryan Peterson-avatar

    Ryan Peterson


    Using with AV8805 Preamp connected to wired ethernet. Works great. Response time between the phone (Samsung Galaxy S8+) is very fast, no significant delay. The only reason I took off a star is because you can't tweak the Audyssey settings unless you buy the Audyssey App. I understand that Audyssey is a separate entity, but since it's built into the (very expensive) receiver, seems like it should be available. Oh, and no screen rotation. Not a big deal, but would make volume adjustment slightly easier. Suggestion for an update would be to show both the incoming and outgoing audio channels on the same screen. Currently you can only see one or the other.

  43. Jeffrey Herrmann-avatar

    Jeffrey Herrmann


    the last version worked fine. since the update, it hogs processor and forces you kill the app to free up resources and preserve the device battery. not sure what the update was supposed to fix, but no new features are available and it broke what had been working. if you have it, don't update. if you updated, like I did, send emails and maybe they'll fix the fix.

    App is way below the level I would expect from Marantz. I went with the SR7012 instead of Sonos. I though the interface would be pretty seamless but it is very buggy. 3 zone control should be fast and simple. It is not fast, the app interface is set up well, but the actual use is buggy and slow. I use this app for selecting zone volumes. It cannot do that simple function without freezing or disconnecting from the reciever. App should be able to do much more, if if cannot do much more it should be able to execute simple commands without issue. Please fix this app, it could be aaaaaammmmaaazing. Instead is is very mediocre.

  46. Saurabh Gupta-avatar

    Horrible app and support from marantz. This app hasn't been updated since long time. Now stopped working! Poor service from marantz. I'm going to change my amp to some better company. Will avoid marantz and denon at all cost.

  47. Aaron Wood-avatar

    Aaron Wood


    Edit: app is now working, but it's extremely slow. Unplugging my marantz sr5011 helped it get detected. revising my original rating to 3 stars from 1 star. Original review: This app is completely useless for my SR5011. The SR5011 is hard-wired to my network and the firmware is up-to-date. The app couldn't automaticaly find my receiver so tried connecting directly to IP address and it says that the device is not supported! Come on Marantz, please make an app that works.

    Perhaps the least intuitive user interface ever designed. The app is clunky unusable and a piece of junk. The developer should be ashamed.

    The app is slow to load and connect (not the phone or Internet), when it's running, you can't "open" the app via the notification panel, all it does is say "app is running in the background" ... Yeah duh, so open it. The notification serves no value other than to take up notification space. The ui is very poor. For more stars give us more access to receiver functions, build heos into it, use the screen real estate for the ui and make the notification useful (eg, open up the background app).

  50. GTN355-avatar



    Simply HORRIBLE!!! I have a Marantz NR1606 since it's release and the firmware that takes care of the network part is simply USELESS just like both Apps! The network side of the receiver/amplifier always crashes after a certain period and the only way to get it wirking again is to pull the powercable! The app (both new and old) have always been hirribly buggy and slow and sometimes I have got the feeling it makes the NR1606 crash too! My next receiver/amplifier won't be a Denon/Marantz!!!

    Totally worthless. About half the time the app won't display the current sound mode. Also won't allow me to change the sound mode (like changing from DD TO multi ch stereo when listening to music). App also likes to lose the receiver, very slow and buggy. In a word: it sucks. edit: simply does not work at all now, despite seeing my amp.

  53. Antakar Donvar-avatar

    This app not only forgets my marantz sr6012, it also is unable to display correct information about current audio setup. Audio in is alway aac, audio mode is always virtual x. The mode is always movie. Even when playing from pcm TV, with stereo setting g on the amp. It takes ages to acquire this information. I can't change mode from movie to music, as it is all the time back to movie.

    Worst app! Love the amp but this app has a mind of its own. Most of the time won't work & kills the CPU on your phone. With this being the central hub of all the audio/video in my home its a nightmare to get this app to work properly. I would suggest buying another amp that has there app fully functional & working properly before investing in a Marantz system. I'm using it on the latest Samsung note 10+ phone.

    Initially the app worked fine . Very handy to adjust receiver settings. Then after a few days, I open the app it searches for several min for my AVR, finds it, then spins for another 4 or 5 min and crashes. Hasn't worked since. Uninstalled and reinstalled, useless. Would expect much more reliability for a high end AVR. Dissapointed.

    Update: latest update restored functionality on Android 10. Glad to see it. Maybe the battery drain was fixed? Only time will tell. I've awarded an additional star for the care to update the app. Fixed battery issue might push this to 4 stars. ------- Depletes battery like crazy Update to android 10, big faiil. app doesn't work, feel that is a big miss on marantz.

    ...last version is garbage!!!.. your phone battery is in 1 day (stand by - not when is running - empty!!!) uninstalled and returned to previous not perfect but better...the latest version is running all time in the background... even then when you closed the is only possible to fixt it when you kill the app in the settings...why Marantz???...the older version ( up to ver.2.4.0) don't do this!!!

    Could be great, but very inconsistent. It intermittently disconnects from the receiver and sometimes won't reconnect without having to restart everything. It will work great for hours at a time, and then not at all. Takes too much time to get it working again. Unfortunate because when it does work it's great.

  59. Igor Polovenko-avatar

    The app is absolute shame. Not only it is pretty useless in controlling the receiver (sr7011), namely it does not allow dlna control, nor it shows what's on the screen, but offers navigation buttons for whatever reason (ridiculous). Basically in control it copies an IR RC. Additionally it is full of bugs. I am not even talking about UI. I will be considering other brands for my next AVR. Marantz's attitude is insulting.

  60. Vipin Sali-avatar

    The App is a terrible battery hog. I'm on a Samsung S7. It took my battery from 90% to 15% in about 2 hours!! I also don't understand why things cannot be integrated into a single app for the receiver. I have to use the heos app for music selection, and the marantz app for the speaker controls.

  61. Paul Pervinkler-avatar

    Paul Pervinkler


    This app seems to work as designed (meaning, at least for my Marantz SR5013, the bugs from the other reviews have been fixed). That said, the UI makes poor use of screen real estate and provides an unintuitive organization of it's (actually quite powerful) feature set. The app does crash on startup when opening it with my receiver already on (sometimes), but it asks if I want to restart the app and then works fine, so that's no big deal to me.

    Ver 3.2.0 WARNING - SERIOUS BATTERY DRAINING APP Disconcerted new owner of Marantz SR7013. Latest Firmware installed. I have a Samsung Note9 and am reliant on this app as, like many people, my Home Theatre equipment is in a dedicated cupboard in another room. Ergo, the remote which came with the unit is of little use to me. I was two hours into setting up the receiver when I got a 15% low battery warning. The Yamaha AV Controller App is quite superior in phone battery usage & user friendliness

    YEARS OF DISAPPOINTMENT AND NOW THIS. Marantz is still trying to make a silk purse out of a sows ear. I threw in the towel and spent $500 for a Bluesound Node 2I which now NEVER LOSES CONNECTIVITY. Pretty sad commentary on a $4000 piece of equipment that needs a $500 external control unit in order to listen to digital music on the home network.

    Complete garbage, crashes every time when you try to open on stock Android 10 on Pixel 3 XL. Why am I not surprised that it wasn't prepared for the new Android!? When it used to open, it disconnected and buged out every single time. This time uninstalled for good! Shame on Marantz and Sound United, doubt will buy their products again!

    Worked until the latest Marantz firmware update. Since then, the app won't detect the amplifier, and if I manually enter the IP address the app says the amplifier is not a supported device. This is extra annoying since the volume buttons on the remote have worn out in just 2 years. FIX IT!

    Works well due to easier access to settings but it uses WAY TOO MUCH battery when not in use. I recently forgot to close the app before leaving my home and a couple of hours later wondered why my phone was hot when I removed it from the inside pocket of my jacket only to discover that the battery usage for this app was >70% and my battery had dropped drastically. I normally charge my phone every other day but with little normal use I can barely make it a day if I don't kill this app when not being used.

    WARNING - DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP! This app was unable to find the receiver. This should have worked as the Audyssey app was able to connect. 3 hours after installing the phone battery had been drained from 85% to 23%. Truly unbelievable and unacceptable performance from an app that should not be posted live. Request sent to Marantz and Google to pull from the play store.

    I have a pixel 2 XL running Android Q and the app no longer opens. Please invest some R&D into your application services. Phone apps used to be "in the future" but we are here now. If you can't get your phone apps working you will soon lose many repeat customers that rely on their phone to control their smart homes and your revenues will decline and drive you out of business. Invest in Your future. Thanks!

    on starting the first time directly a notification that the app is written for an older version of Android. Not very nice for a latest model receiver. Also 2016 in the title of the app is a bit sad. Best would be to integrate everything in the Heos app. otherwise app appears to work fine.

    Works better with AV8805 than AV8802A on Android 10. This app seems to be very unpredictable with a Pixel 4 XL running Android 10. My 8802A consistently show up on my windows network, but I have 1 8802A connected to a media bridge and this app is unpredictable on whether it will find it or not. App also tends to run very slowly. I love Marantz preamps but their apps leave something to be desired. At least with the older app you can force it to locate the preamp but entering the IP address.

    Bad coding: App does not detect my AVR receiver on mobile phone. On other mobile device (tablet) the same receiver is recognized by the app. Tried several fixes without any luck. They should first test & fix their apps before releasing them to the public. Very dissapointing experince with an expensive AVR receiver.

    This App dose not work on my Android devices. 2 phones and a tablet. I have a Marantz AVR 7012, misplaced my remote in the house somewhere. Looked a few times but can't find it.

    App works well with my Av, but wish that when playing Spotify, that I can search in the app itself for a song, so that I don't have to constantly open Spotify again (maybe option to connect Spotify account). Would also like to see that you can skip songs via notification centre, if you have notifications turned on, like what Sonos offers for their app. Overall great add-on!

    What is going on with this app? I downloaded it and it won't even open. It automatically has an error and shuts down on it's own. I was looking forward to using this on my new NR1200 but I guess not. It's a real shame because the receiver is awesome. Hopefully this app gets fixed.

  79. John Robinson-avatar

    John Robinson


    A full-on poor. Why does the app call itself 2016 when it supoorts models thru 2019? Why does the app run in the background (complete with annoying & permanent notification), but the user can't quit the app without resorting to force closing it via the system settings? Useful app for settings, but that's it. The rest is junk.

    I was hoping the app would provide access to some extra functionality but other than ease of renaming inputs, there wasn't much there so I'll use the regular remote. On my Samsung s7 running android 8.0 it also chewed the 27% of my battery in 6 hrs so that was a total deal breaker.

    Using this app with my marantz sr5013 is a life saver for me since the heos app has very little functionality with this receiver and what it does have barely works. This app can do anything The real remote can but makes it much easier. It is also perfect in my case since my receiver is in an electronics closet with no line of sight for the real remote.

    Unfortunately I have to join the harsh criticism of this app. It's dated to say the least, slow, unintuitive, behaves badly (e.g. stays in the background after exiting). Very bad user experience for a very good AVR. It's a real shame.

    For such great company they have a terrible looking and slow app. I have a Yamaha CX-A5100 that has an awesome looking and functioning remote app. Marantz needs to get a lesson from Yamaha on how to make a great remote app. It does work slowly with my SR8012 and AV8805.

  85. Daniel Jafine-avatar

    Daniel Jafine


    App generally works as expected however... 1. The app should not run in the background draining battery. 2. You should be able to configure a static IP if your Marantz is on another network. App experience is okay, but feels like I could use more polish (i.e. the way graphics load)

    This is the worst AVR app I've ever seen, it doesn't even deserve the 1 star. I can't believe Marantz put this out there. It's one of the reasons I moved to Yamaha in my other rooms as the app is light years ahead of this disaster.

    Very slow response. Bad UI experience. Expected a more convenient and versatile way to control the AVR remotely. The app just replicates the remote control. Communication to the AVR seems flawed making it much slower to use than the physical remote.
