-Marantz AV7701 AV Processor


An ideal connectivity solution for any home theatre system, the Marantz AV7701 A/V 7.2 Channel Pre amplifier helps you make the most of Blu-ray players, turntables, and other entertainment devices. When paired with an amplifier, this preamp delivers immersive and faithful surround sound performance across 7.2 channels. It also features 4K upscaling and pass-through, so you can enjoy the latest HD video content to the fullest.

Equipped with advanced processing and decoding technologies, Marantz AV7701 A/V 7.2 channel pre amplifier lets you enjoy unparalleled audio performance regardless of the source. It uses Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD-Master Audio to ensure accurate 7.1 surround sound decoding, flawlessly balancing sound across the channels. The preamp can also play back high-resolution formats such as FLAC and WAV with exceptional fidelity.

The preamp incorporates Audyssey MultEQ technology, which uses a microphone to gauge ambient sound and adjusts speaker levels accordingly. The result is a flawlessly balanced acoustic environment where sound is optimally distributed throughout the room. In addition, Audyssey DSX processing expands the front sound stage, producing a more enveloping and cinematic listening experience.

The Marantz AV7701 A/V 7.2 channel pre amplifier can upscale any HDMI video signals to 4K (3,840 by 2,160 pixels), providing four times the picture quality of 1080p. This enables you to use it with 4K monitors and video projectors. The preamp also supports traditional 1080p upscaling, making it suitable for use with most HDTVs. Controlling the preamp's upscaling settings is easy, thanks to an intuitive on-screen overlay. The Marantz AV7701 A/V 7.2 channel pre amplifier passes through 3D signals from your Blu-ray player. The preamp also supports Deep Colour and x.v.Colour content, which can display a larger colour range than standard-definition schemes and delivers a more vibrant, lifelike picture.

With seven HDMI inputs and three HDMI outputs, the pre amplifier can connect to a variety of HDMI-enabled devices, including set-top boxes, Blu-ray players, game systems, and media players. It also supports simultaneous dual HDMI outputs as well as a third discrete HDMI output, so you can output a single video source to two different displays and a second source to a third display at the same time.

The Marantz AV7701 A/V 7.2 channel pre amplifier is also equipped with a variety of other ports, including a phono input that lets you connect to a turntable and offers the amplification that this weaker signal requires. The preamp's phono circuitry prepares the signal from the turntable for amplification, letting you enjoy your vinyl collection at full volume without tonal distortion.

By connecting to your home network, the Marantz AV7701 A/V 7.2 channel pre amplifier can stream a range of online content--including photos saved on your home network, your network's music library, and Internet radio stations like Pandora and Sirius XM. The preamp also features AirPlay functionality, which lets you stream music from an iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad, or iTunes library. And thanks to its optional Bluetooth wireless connectivity, the preamp can also wirelessly sync with smartphones, tablets, and other Bluetooth-enabled devices. For users with Spotify Premium accounts, the Marantz AV7701 A/V 7.2 channel pre amplifier offers direct access to more than 18 million music tracks. Spotify streams music content with a high-quality 320 Kbps bitrate, offering high-fidelity listening through your home-audio system.
