The new SR7005 AV Receiver with 7x 125W into 8 ohms keeps cross channel contamination to an absolute minimum for ultra-precise signal processing. The “muscle” power of the system comes from the current feedback circuitry with Marantz HDAMs and an oversized low impedance transformer for rapid current supply. Not even extreme demands for power will pull the SR7005 off balance. The “brain” of the system is the latest 400Mhz Sharc DSP, which easily handles HD audio decoding including the Audyssey DSX and the MultEQ XT room calibration. The source signal can be either digital or analogue, and it can also be from a wide variety of inputs. First of all, via the six HDMI 1.4a inputs, one of which is hidden behind the front flap for easy access. For new media there is a iPod-digital-compatible USB input, while the RJ45 Network jack provides connection to vTuner Internet radio and music services such as Napster and last.fm. You can even access your music library stored on computer .
Classical analogue signals will come from the built-in FM tuner or via either the analogue input jacks or the Phono equalizer: which is ideal for vinyls. Video signals are also treated with loving care by ABT2015 video processing, a host of video adjustment possibilities and two HDMI 1.4a outputs supporting 3D video. It’s all there, eager to please.
Anchor Bay ABT2015
The Anchor Bay Technologies' video scaling chip is specially made for applications requiring high-quality up-conversion from standard video like 576i up to high-definition formats including 1080p, I/P conversion and upconversion from analogue video signals to the digital domain for transfer through HDMI. The chip features Anchor Bay's proprietary 10-bit Precision Video Scaling Engine that can independently scale an image horizontally and vertically to achieve an outstanding picture quality for today's demanding high resolution video displays. See '1080p Upscaling'. Marantz makes use of the standard ABT1030 and the advanced ABT2015 chip offering further video adjustment possibilities and noise reduction processing.
Dolby True HD
Dolby TrueHD is Dolby’s next-generation lossless technology developed for high-definition audio coding. Dolby TrueHD supports up to eight full-range channels, allowing the audio engineer to position sounds for a more realistic effect than ever before. Dolby TrueHD is supported by HDMI™, the single-cable digital connection for high-definition audio and video. Dolby TrueHD will be transmitted via HDMI 1.3a and is compatible with HDMI 1.1 as an outputted HD 7.1 PCM multichannel signal. See ‘HD - 7.1 PCM Multichannel’
DTS-HD Master Audio
DTS-HD Master Audio is an optional High Definition Audio format for all Blu-ray Disc™ products. DTS-HD Master Audio format allows a bit-to-bit representation of the original movie’s studio master soundtrack and delivers audio at high constant bit rates superior to standard DVDs.
Marantz developed its own discrete circuit boards to replace standard IC's. These HDAM's consists of discrete surface mount components with short mirror image L/R signal paths. Those devices are doing exactly the same thing as the Op-Amps, but outperform the regular IC Op-amps dramatically in terms of the Slew Rate and reduced noise level, resulting in a much more dynamic, accurate and detailed sound. Over the years Marantz developed different types of the HDAM to improve quality and to fit to the special requirements of a product category like CD or amplifier.
HDMI 6in 2out
HDMI combines high-definition video and superb audio in a single digital interface with a bandwidth of up to 10 Gigabits/ second. HDMI complies with High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) technology protecting high-value content from unauthorized reproduction and distribution. HDMI is the only interface in consumer electronics that can carry both high-definition video and multi-channel audio e.g. Dolby Digital and DTS in all HD formats, including 720p, 1080i and 1080p. With only a single cable connection all information can be digitally transmitted. The latest HDMI1.3 supports higher resolution audio formats as Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD and a higher bandwidth for higher framerates and extended degradation in colour space.
PC Audio streaming
Digital media stored on a computer or NAS (network access storage - network hard disc drive) is becoming more and more popular. But listening to the music only "on the go" via your portable media player or sitting in front of a PC is not a must anymore. With our products supporting audio streaming you can enjoy the music via the HiFi system in a high-quality, and while sitting on your couch.
vTuner connects your Internet-enabled product to the wide world of streamed music and talk. vTuner hosts thousands of Internet radio stations and podcasts on a reliable and maintained platform. The amount of content they offer keeps growing. Stations can be searched by several criteria such as region and genre, etc. but it is also possible to search a station by name or add a URL of a specific station if not listed yet. vTuner doesn't need a subscription and is free of charge with the enabled Marantz products.
