Marantz SR7009 9.2 Network A/V Receiver
Packed with the latest audio and video technologies, the Marantz SR7009 sets new standards for audio and video performance, and includes Dolby Atmos decoding, letting you experience the ultimate theater sound experience right in your own home.
Now found in premium cinemas around the world, the revolutionary Dolby Atmos system delivers the ultimate audio experience by expanding the soundstage via the use of overhead speakers (or with compatible Dolby Atmos speakers), allowing pinpoint imaging of every sound in the movie soundtrack to be precisely positioned in exactly the same way as found in a commercial Dolby Atmos theater.
Delivering 125 watts per channel, the SR7009 features 9 discrete high current power amplifier channels that are all rated to drive regular 8 ohm speakers and lower impedance 4 ohm speakers, and the SR7009 features multiple pre-amp outputs that let you connect external power amplifiers to drive additional speakers in the main room as well as drive more speakers elsewhere in the home.
The video processing section is our most advanced, with full 4K Ultra HD compatibility, including the ability to handle high frame rate 4K/60 Hz content, and there's also full 4K Ultra HD upscaling for HD sources and even SD sources, and the SR7009's video processor also includes the full suite of ISF video calibration controls for studio quality video right in your home.
Introduced in premium cinemas in 2012, Dolby Atmos has become the de facto standard for enveloping and immersive motion picture sound, and features the ability to dramatically expand the dimensional sound experience through the use of multiple overhead loudspeakers that can be individually addressed, to allow pinpoint acoustical imaging at precise locations within the room. Since its introduction, Dolby Atmos has been embraced by award-winning directors, sound designers and soundtrack mixers, and many recent blockbuster movies feature soundtracks mastered in Dolby Atmos.
Now, Marantz brings the Dolby Atmos experience home, featuring the ability to directly drive overhead speakers (1 or 2 pairs) as well as drive Dolby Atmos-compatible main speakers. With 9 assignable amplifier channels and additional pre-amp outputs for an additional stereo amp and speakers, you can enjoy immersive 11.2 channel Dolby Atmos surround sound in a number of configurations to suit your particular home theater space and 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 SR7009 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.
Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD-Master Audio
In addition to Dolby Atmos, the SR7009 features Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD-Master Audio high resolution lossless audio formats found on Blu-ray discs.
