Marantz Receivers Priced at Mid-Market Levels
The SR7009 and SR6009 A/V receivers from Marantz are designed to provide homeowners with a choice of solutions that deliver full A/V home entertainment flexibility.
Driven by formats such as 4K and now Dolby Atmos, the home theater market is once again heating up. Stepping up to satisfy mid-market demands for full-featured, reasonably priced A/V receivers is Marantz.
The company’s newly announced SR7009 ($1,999) and SR6009 ($1,299) incorporate the latest features, including 4K compatibility, network options and a choice of surround sound processor modes.
Marantz states the 7.2-channel SR6009 utilizes a seven-channel amplifier section rated to deliver 110-watts-per- channel, processing modes headlined by Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio HD, Audyssey MultEQ XT room equalization, eight HDMI inputs (seven in rear/single input in front), 4K compatibility, wireless networking connectivity and Bluetooth.
The step-up 9.2-channel SR7009 incorporates a nine-channel amplifier rated to deliver 125-watts-per-channel, as well as Dolby’s state-of-the-art Atmos surround technology, the same feature set as the SR6009, and a 13.2 pre-out option.
Marantz’s U.S. office explains the SR7009 can be set up to run seven-, nine- or 11-channel Dolby Atmos configurations using 5.1.2, 5.1.4, 7.1.2, 7.1.4 or 9.1.2 speaker arrays.
In addition, both receivers are compatible with a variety of audio file formats, including MP3, WAV, AAC, WMA, AIFF, and they offer phono inputs for analog audio enthusiasts.
