New realms in AV

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - LIVING -

AV re­ceivers, tra­di­tion­ally al­ready crammed to the full with fea­tures, have new realms to stake out these days – net­work­ing and 3D. Marantz, even if not at the fore­front of the home the­atre race, isn’t about to be left be­hind, as its two new AV amps, the SR5006 and SR6006 af­firm.

Both have net­work­ing fa­cil­i­ties for au­dio stream­ing so you can tune in to a va­ri­ety of In­ter­net ra­dio sta­tions. Marantz’s Air­Play fea­ture also al­lows them to link with any iDe­vice. Fi­nally, they’re also ready to han­dle 3D video. Of course, the usual cut­ting edge de­coders are in­cluded – Dolby TrueHD and DTSHD Mas­ter Au­dio, among the oth­ers.

The SR5006 dishes out 100 watts into each of its chan­nels, the SR6006 goes up to 110W. No lack­ing in power, then; ad­di­tion­ally, speedy cal­i­bra­tion and op­ti­mi­sa­tion are al­lowed via the on­board Audyssey MultEQ XT set-up Wiz­ard and in­tu­itive graph­ics.
