Dolby Atmos AV Receiver - Marantz SR8012

OUR VERDICT - What's the difference between the Marantz AV Receiver model's ? Even from the base model, the SR5013, your experience will be nothing short of extraordinary. As you step up the range the number of amplifier channels increases, dynamic range is improved and the overall sound becomes even more fine tuned and refined. Whichever model you choose your home cinema will be grateful.

Due to the huge success of the almighty SR7012 there has been much speculation and hype as to whether the new flagship Marantz SR8012 will be much of an improvement, after all 'When it isn't broke, don't try to fix it'. That phrase is not in the Marantz ethos and its a good job too as the all new SR 8012 is something quite spectacular with all the features of its siblings and more. What's even more fascinating is that they have managed to do all this and keep it in such an attractive box, well as pretty as an AV Receiver can be anyway.

So what can you expect ? Quite a lot would be the answer to that but we believe that one of the main features that will grab your attention is the 'Alexa' feature, the duties of an AV Receiver would normally include enhancing your audio visual experience but Marantz have been working extremely hard to make your experience easier and smarter. The Alexa feature means that there will be no more scrambling for the remote to adjust the volume or change the input so you can play your favourite game on your console, just let your voice be the remote....simple. Marantz have also included their proprietary Heos wireless multiroom. Now your living room cinema can be part of your whole house audio system thanks to Heos, this also means that if you have other Heos devices, such as the Superb Heos 1, around your home you can enable TV sound grouping and listen to the football game around the house. The SR8012 also features Dolby Atmos, 11 channels of power, 4K UHD HDMI's, Bluetooth, WIFI, an update for the IMAX Enhanced feature and so much more. One of the latest features to be added to modern AV Receivers is eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) eARC supports the most advanced audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X via single HDMI connection between AVRs and compatible TVs. In short the Marantz SR 8012 has everything you could ever want combined with legendary Marantz sound, we believe that this is something special for the discerning home cinema fan - THOROUGHLY RECOMMENDED

With unparalleled Marantz performance, the new top-of-the-line SR8012 AV receiver is made for those wanting the ultimate audio and video experience. Its symmetrical monolithic amplifier design gives it 11 identical amplifier channels, each delivering 205W per channel, for seamless surround sound integration. The design also brings to the Marantz AV receiver line a large toroidal transformer, mounted centrally for mechanical balance, a copper plated chassis, selected audio components throughout and high-grade speaker terminals. The SR8012 opens a new chapter in the illustrious history of Marantz AV receivers.

Featuring exclusive Marantz HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology found on our Reference Series components, the SR8012 incorporates multiple HDAM modules which provide superior low noise wideband performance in an all-discrete configuration, compared to conventional op amp ICs. HDAM technology provides an ultra fast slew rate for true wideband response and maximum dynamic range to deliver optimum sound quality with today’s high resolution audio formats. In addition to HDAM technology, the SR8012 also features Current Feedback instead of the typical voltage feedback configuration. A Marantz innovation introduced on our very first audiophile amplifiers more than 60 years ago, Current Feedback technology provides a wide closed-loop bandwidth and very high slew rate, delivering superior fidelity with wideband audio sources.

Equipped with the flagship Audyssey suite of features, the SR8012 features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction using advanced DSP algorithms. With the supplied measurement microphone, it analyzes the output of each speaker (including the subwoofers) at up to 8 measurement locations, then generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the bets possible sound. Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels while still enjoying clear dialogue, music and sound effects, while Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides full-range clarity at any listening level. Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver a full-range balance, including deep bass, but without disturbing close-by neighbours or those in other rooms, and features a multi-step adjustment. Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual DSP tailoring of each subwoofer in a dual subwoofer setup, allowing deeper bass with improved definition when compared to a single subwoofer configuration.

A single subwoofer demands optimal placement to avoid audible peaks and dips in the low-frequency response at the main listening position. The SR8012 supports two subwoofers: used in different locations, these will even out the low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere in the room.

Whatever your family's entertainment needs, the SR8012 delivers: you can enjoy 7.1-channel surround sound in the main room, and at the same time play stereo sound from another source in a different part of the house. Simply connect a pair of stereo speakers to the multi-room amplified outputs, or hook up a separate stereo amp and speakers to the Zone 2 pre-outs.

Bill from Greenview -
This Receiver is a beast plain and simple. I currently have it hooked up to a Samsung plasma tv and the 4k up scaling is phenomenal. Eventually it will power def tech 9080 series towers and center plus svs heights as well but this thing Rocks my current 7.1 Klipsch setup. It doesn't run that hot like others have said but I will have to keep watch on that aspect. Set up was easy and I like the remote that comes with it and the apps seem to be easy to use . Yes its costly but its worth it. I have been trying to find things that make it a deal breaker but it just keeps getting better and better. I have had other receivers that I thought was awesome but the SR8012 just simply blows the others out of the water. If you want a great (not just good) Home Theater system ,this is where you start. Looks like the 65 C8 Oled is next and its going to be awesome. I was a Denon man now the Sr8012 has changed my mind completely. This is one of those things that the day after or the week after I don't regret it and neither will you. Looks great also and the wife just loves it so its a win win situation. Cheers
