Fu­ture-proofed en­ter­tain­ment

Australian HIFI - - LEN WALLIS AUDIO -

These new AV re­ceivers are pre­pared for the fu­ture, with both of­fer­ing video ca­pa­bil­i­ties that are fully com­pat­i­ble with the lat­est HDMI and HDCP 2.2 spec­i­fi­ca­tions on all eight HDMI ports. Ad­di­tion­ally, both mod­els have 4K Ul­tra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub­sam­pling, High Dy­namic Range (HDR), 21:9 video, 3D, BT.2020 pass-through, and Dolby Vi­sion pass-through sup­port on ev­ery in­put.

All HDMI in­puts en­able a full ar­ray of 4K Ul­tra HD sources to be con­nected, and the triple HDMI out­puts al­low both mod­els to sup­port not just TV and pro­jec­tor set-ups in the main lis­ten­ing room, but also a sep­a­rate dis­play in an­other part of the house with an in­de­pen­dent source. Audyssey MultEQ XT32 au­dio set-up and cal­i­bra­tion en­sures pre­cise sound, which the user can tune us­ing the Audyssey Edi­tor app which is avail­able through Google Play and iTunes stores.

These ad­vanced au­dio and video fea­tures al­low us to of­fer ro­bust home cinema so­lu­tions while si­mul­ta­ne­ously in­tro­duc­ing more cus­tomers to the power and beauty of multi-chan­nel ar­rays fea­tur­ing ob­ject-based au­dio.

It’s clear by the mas­sive toroidal power sup­ply, dual heatsinks, and monobloc am­pli­fier con­struc­tion that Marantz is re­turn­ing to its roots in em­pha­sis of “sound qual­ity first” in AV re­ceivers.
