Marantz SR6009 7.2 Network Home Theater A/V Receiver features built-in Wi-Fi and built-in Bluetooth
The extremely versatile AV7702, perfectly and expertly handles any kind of high-resolution multichannel audio format. It also offers an extended network package including audio streaming, internet radio, Pandora®, SiriusXMTM, Spotify Connect®, and AirPlay®. It even includes built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities. However, to get the best of the latest high-resolution DSD and FLAC HD format, we recommend hard-wiring the units.
Superb surround sound audio quality from the latest tone formats is guaranteed by the powerful 32-Bit SHARC DSP offering high channel separation that leaves no chance for any crosstalk. Tone formats include Audyssey DSX, DTS Neo:X 11.1 and the latest decoding technology Dolby Atmos – which not only provides breath-taking surround sound but also opens the door to 3D sound. In addition, the 11.2 channel AV7702 further enhances audio quality by delicately handling all signals via Marantz’s own current feedback HDAMs preamp, before passing them to the high-quality 11.2 XLR or 13.2 RCA outputs and separate power amp.
The AV7702 also takes supreme care of video signals via the eight HDMI 4k 60Hz pass-through/scaling inputs and sends them to the two HDMI output sockets or independently to the third HDMI output that is dedicated for multi-room. There is even a Phono MM input – ideal for those precious vinyls. Setup and operation are quick and easy via the Audyssey MultEQ XT32 auto-calibration and high-resolution Graphic User Interface. It’s all there, just waiting to perform.
8 HDMI Inputs, 3 HDMI Outputs with 4K Ultra HD 60 Hz Pass-through; 4:4:4 Pure Color
Equipped with an advanced video processor section, the AV7702 features 8 HDMI inputs, including 1 conveniently located on the front panel, and features 4K Ultra HD 60 Hz full rate pass-through for the next generation of ultra-high definition content. The video section is also compatible with full 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, another feature of the latest HDMI specification. The video section also features SD and HD upconversion and transcoding to 4K Ultra HD. The two HDMI output sockets for the main room and a third dedicated for Multi-room application handle almost all of today’s Ultra HD formats.
Dolby Atmos Surround Decoding
In addition to Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master audio high-resolution lossless decoding, the AV7702 is one of the first to incorporate Dolby Atmos advanced surround decoding. Dolby Atmos is an object-based surround sound encoding and decoding system, and is found in many of the world’s premier movie theaters. With Dolby Atmos, sounds can be placed with pinpoint precision anywhere in the listening space, via the use of ceiling speakers or Dolby Atmos-compatible main speakers, and the system is truly scalable to match the surround decoding specifically to any particular listening space and speaker complement up to a 9.1.2 speaker configuration.
Auro-3D® is the next generation three-dimensional audio standard. It provides a realistic sound experience unlike anything before. By fully immersing the listener in a cocoon of life-like sound, Auro-3D® creates the sensation of actually ‘being there’. Thanks to a unique ‘Height’ channel configuration, recorded acoustic reflections are reproduced by these speakers and are heard naturally due to the fact that sounds originate from around as well as above the listener.
Once upgraded with the Auro®- Codec Decoder, the AV7702 is capable of decoding the original Auro-3D®mix and playing back an Auro 10.1 channel configuration (including “Voice of God” channel). The Auro-3D®Upgrade can be purchased for $199.
