I’m used to thick manuals. My Denon 3808A, my Marantz 11 Series all shipped with thick manuals. The Marantz 8805 do not have one. There is only a quick start guide.
I was initially disappointed by this. However after loading up their manual I realised Marantz has did the sensible thing. Their electronic guide is good and works best on a tablet. So far I only managed to find the US Edition at time of this writing (Will update here once I find the Australian one).
Here’s the electronic manual. The top tabs and bottom buttons are all clickable, bringing you to the sections instantly.
Click the ‘Rear’ button brings you to this page instantly. Flick to the next pages to find out what they are.
This also means I no longer have to read the entire manual back to back. Search and I find the information I need straight away. After a ten year hiatus, this is a game changer for me. Why are the Japanese always this cutting edge?
Remember to charge up your tablet and load the manual before you setup your Marantz 8805.
