Aesthetically, the global manufacturer states that its latest AVR is available in a choice of silver or black finishes, and the CINEMA 30 utilizes the latest iteration of its porthole display surrounded by Marantz‘s latest industrial design concepts.
“CINEMA 30 represents a statement of excellence for Marantz in the AVR category and one of the most sophisticated designs the team has created in its 70-year history,” comments Dave Sheen, president of the luxury performance audio group, Masimo Consumer. “I cannot wait to hear how it is received by our loyal customers and specialist reviewers.”
Digging into the engineering of its new AVR, Marantz continues by noting the CINEMA 30 is built around a symmetrical, monolithic amplifier design. Elaborating of the receiver’s amplification, the company says the amplifier channels are mounted on a separate PCB exactly opposite the power supplies, which Marantz says enables the amplifier section to deliver instantaneous low-distortion power.
In total, the AVR provides 11 channels of amplification, and the capabilities to provide professional integrators with 13.4-channels of processing via a selectable pre-amp mode that supports the addition of an outboard amplifier.
Marantz CINEMA 30 Provides the Latest Processing Formats
Addressing the many surround sound and immersive audio options that homeowners have available to them with the AVR, the new Marantz receiver employs Analog Devices’ SHARC dual DSP chipset mated to state-of-the-art 32-bit ESS Sabre DACs (digital-to-analog converters).
Powered by the Analog Devices and ESS Sabre internal components, the CINEMA 30 is capable of delivering a choice of formats that include Dolby Atmos, IMAX Enhanced, DTS:X Pro, and Auro 3D. Helping to ensure these formats sound their best, the new 11-channel, 140-watts per channel Marantz AVR offers Audyssey MultEQ XT32 room optimization software and the optional Dirac Live room calibration platform.
Supporting a range of media content, the receiver incorporates seven HDMI inputs that are compatible with 8K video, and the company emphasizes through the CINEMA 30’s high-resolution interface, integrators can configure the AVR in any way necessary to meet the needs of their clientele. Some of the other features the receiver offers include Masimo Consumer’s HEOS whole-house audio platform, along with Spotify Connect, Apple AirPlay 2, and wireless Bluetooth connectivity.
Additionally, Marantz stresses, the smart-home friendly CINEMA 30 AVR is capable of integrating into voice control platforms such as Amazon Alexa and HomePod Voice Assistant.
Marantz’s Cinema 30 is currently available for order and retails for $4,500 MSRP.
