Simply not true. Look at how many blu ray players I have reviewed and the level objectivity I use to approach them.
For the record, your comment is absurd and nonsensical in that I have posted numerous times my prefered BD player of late is the Marantz BD7004. I prefer it to the Oppo, which is an incredibly strong comment to make on these forums.
I am on my third SR6004. Product design/build quality issues are very relevant; especially on a new release with a lot of people look at these from a potential buyer's perspective. For me, a $1000 receiver that dies in the first week of use and a second of the same make that has debilitating HDMI issues are very relevant things.
As you can see from my initial posts, I made some rather strong complements to the quality sound of the Marantz. My objection is really with quality control in that I have two different issues with two different units.
If you read my forums, I am brutally honest and do not view any product through rose-tinted glasses. Objectivity is important in these forums - there are a lot of people that simply defend brands.
I really like the Marantz SR6004 when it's working properly. Judging from posts by other owners, these units appear to have some issues (ie randomly turning on by themselves) that are probably indicative of either a rushed product or poor quality control/design.
