In addition to the products’ home theater options, the CINEMA Series AVRs incorporate the company’s HEOS platform. This built-in technology supports multiroom audio to allow homeowners to enjoy their favorite music, podcasts or sports from popular streaming providers or personal music libraries—using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or Apple AirPlay 2 from anywhere in their homes.
Externally, Marantz emphasizes the new line of home theater products feature a modern industrial design that is synonymous with its heritage, including the iconic porthole display and other visual cues.
Supporting integrators, the CINEMA Series employs a new high-definition graphical user interface (GUI) and voice control for end users that makes setup and operation easy. Marantz also notes that Installers also get access to a variety of new features such as its CI mode which protects certain settings and reduces the likelihood of service calls due to user error.
