The company's latest audio component has been announced.
Marantz has revealed the successor to its previously released AV7702. The upcoming AV7702MK2 adds support for new tech like DTS:X and HDMI 2.0a.
The 11.2 channel Preamp/Processor uses the company's HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) system for optimum quality with high-res audio. Likewise, the device offers integrated support for Dolby Atmos, along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for music services like SiriusXM, Spotify, Pandora, Deezer and QQ music. In addition, the new model features HDMI 2.0a support with HDCP 2.2 compliancy for 4K Ultra HD video and HDR content from streaming and external products (like Ultra HD Blu-ray). Finally, the AV7702MK2 will also support DTS:X through a future firmware upgrade (a $199 upgrade is also available for Auro-3D support at up to 10.1 channels).
The Marantz AV7702MK2 will start shipping in October for $2,199.
