Marantz AV7702 “B STOCK” Multichannel A/V Preamplifier with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Dolby Atmos
The all new Marantz AV7702 is extremely versatile, demonstrated by its ability to perfectly and expertly handle any kind of high-resolution multichannel audio
format. It also offers an extended network package including audio streaming, internet radio, Pandora, SiriusXM, 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.
The Marantz AV7702 features superb surround sound audio quality from the latest tone formats, 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 Marantz 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 that precious vinyl. 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. 4K Ultra HD 60 Hz full rate pass-through makes it easy to setup 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 upscaling 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 Marantz 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.
