Marantz presented with more detail its new A/V receiver 7.2 channels – the SR6007 model – which is an ideal multimedia gateway, even for large Home Cinema builds.
Displaying on its front the metal gauge, emblem of the Marantz brand, this newcomer has the same features such as DLNA audio streaming, Android integration, listening to Internet radio stations, the AirPlay feature from iTunes or a iDevice. It also incorporates Audyssey DSX processing for surround sound performance, a USB-compatible digital input for iPod, and a moving magnet phono input (MM) for vinyl lovers.
To ensure the best possible audio quality from compressed audio files played via USB, the SR6007 is equipped with the M-DAX2 processing – Marantz Dynamic Expander version 2, which also optimizes the quality of MP3 files on CD or come from the optional Bluetooth receiver (RX101). To all this adds a nice power: 7 x 110 watts into effective 8 ohms, all supported by the Audyssey Dynamic Volume Control, which prevents any sudden jump in volume level during commercial breaks for example.
The SR6007 is equipped with six HDMI inputs, all 3D video/4k and ARC (Audio Return Channel, Audio Return Channel) compatible. One of these HDMI inputs is on the front, and two HDMI outputs on the rear panel, are used simultaneously, which provides power at the same time to a TV and a projector. The low-resolution video signals can be treated with upscaling up to 4K resolution. In addition, calibration and optimization are quick and easy, thanks to the Audyssey MultEQ XT, the setup wizard and the graphical user interface embedded in the image.
The SR6007 will be available from July, in black or silver/gold, priced at $1199.
