The CINEMA 40 is a full-scale home theater receiver with 9 amplifier channels built in and a large array of inputs and outputs. It can easily be the heart of a great home theater system. To try and uphold their tradition of making gear that sounds natural, Marantz has a program in Japan where they train engineers to be what they call a “Marantz Sound Master”. They will learn to identify the type of sound that has made Marantz famous and perform many listening tests as a product is being developed. While it is not clear if this is done for every single Marantz product, we know for a fact the new CINEMA 40 went through the Sound Master listening process to fine-tune its sonic signature for that warm Marantz sound. The CINEMA 40 is even made in the Shirakawa plant in Japan. Build quality-wise, we have always been impressed with the way Marantz puts their units together. On both the CINEMA 40 and CINEMA 50, you get an aluminum front panel with the cool new look they launched with their Series 30.

Marantz Factory Refurbished

Buying a Marantz Factory Refurbished product is a great way to get "as-new" products at a considerable savings. Every product has been thoroughly tested, repaired (if necessary), cleaned and otherwise renewed to original condition. Next it's repackaged with original accessories included. When you consider that a factory-renewed Marantz product undergoes such close scrutiny for defects and workmanship, you might actually be buying something that is in many ways better than new. And for your piece of mind and protection, your purchase is covered by a full 1 year parts and labor warranty valid at any authorized Marantz repair center (you can look-up locations online here or call 800-654-6633)

Marantz, like all electronics manufactures, receives products returned for various reasons. In 2023 consumers returned 23 billion dollars in electronics globally, of which less than 5% were found to be defective! Once a product has been opened, it must be resold as refurbished or open box and cannot be resold as new again. The history and reason why a product was returned is not provided to us, thus we cannot provide any additional details regarding its past. All products are processed by Marantz certified technicians, where they are fully tested, repaired (only if necessary), and retested again to ensure the highest quality control. Each unit must pass a complete battery of test before it can be titled a "Marantz Factory Refurbished" product.

Most (not all) units are cosmetically in Mint Condition (graded a 9 or higher on a scale of 1-10). Very minor signs of wear (light surface scuffs or minor scratches) may be present, although most units show little or no signs of any usage. We DO NOT sell products that are cosmetically damaged (cracked displays, broken knobs, heavy scratches, or physically abused) unless noted in the description. Unfortunately, we cannot provide actual photos of each unit or pick the best one for anyone, as they are all randomly chosen from our factory sealed boxes.

Excellent AVR

5 MARANTZ Cinema 40 9.4-Ch x 125 Watts A/V 8K Receiver
Reviewer: from Midwest
First, I wish to compliment A4L for an excellent transaction. The entire purchase and receiving process was very smooth and expertly handled. Now as for the Marantz C40. The condition of the unit is excellent. Not a scratch on it and what a great sounding machine. I’m replacing a solid Yamaha AVR and I can already tell that the signature Marantz sound is much more to my liking. I am still breaking in the unit with a new pair of Polk R700’s that should soak up every nuance of the C40’s 125 watts per channel. When I first hooked up the receiver I used my Klipsch RF820’s and I was nearly in tears over how the new C40 took them to an entirely new dimension of sound quality and spatial separation. I am looking forward to using the C40 with my CD’s and my vintage Yamaha turntable ( I bought it new in 1976 and have just resurrected it from storage) with original Stanton cart. The pairing with my BP8000 4k player is outstanding. Movies have never sounded so good on my system. The C40 is pushing a 5.2.4 Dolby Atmos setup and Maverick flying by is awesome. For this price point I am truly amazed at the sound I am getting. The system setup was easy and using the Audyssey microphone to balance my room went well with only a few manual adjustments needed. I doubt I will use the Dirac features but they are available if needed in the future. Streaming from my Apple account is easy. PS5 no problem. Auto tuning all my radio stations with one button is awesome. If you’re looking for an upgrade without breaking the bank this is hands down a bargain.
