Dolby Atmos Surround Decoding

Introduced in premier movie theaters in 2012, Dolby Atmos has become the de facto standard for enveloping and immersive motion picture sound, and features the ability to dramatically expand the dimensional sound experience through the use of multiple overhead loudspeakers that can be individually addressed, to allow pinpoint acoustical imaging at precise locations within the room. Since its introduction, Dolby Atmos has been embraced by award-winning directors, sound designers and soundtrack mixers, and many recent blockbuster movies feature soundtracks mastered in Dolby Atmos.

Now, Marantz brings the Dolby Atmos experience home, and the AV8802 features outputs that can be configured for 1 or 2 pairs of overhead speakers and/or add-on Dolby Atmos speaker modules.

The Atmos decoder also features upconversion from conventional surround soundtracks to deliver the ultimate three-dimensional experience with your favorite movies and concerts.

Auro-3D upgrade-ready

Auro-3D® is the next generation three-dimensional audio standard. It provides a realistic sound experience unlike anything before. By fully immersing the listener in a cocoon of life-like sound,

Auro-3D® creates the sensation of actually being there. Thanks to a unique ‘Height’ channel configuration, recorded acoustic reflections are reproduced by these speakers and are heard naturally due to the fact that sounds originate from around as well as above the listener.

Once upgraded with the Auro®- Codec Decoder, the AV8802 is capable of decoding the original Auro-3D® mix and playing back an Auro 10.1 channel configuration (including Voice of God channel). The Auro-3D® Upgrade can be purchased for $199.

Exclusive HDAM Technology and Current Feedback

Featuring exclusive Marantz HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology found on our Reference Series components, the AV8802 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 todayís high resolution audio formats.

In addition to HDAM technology, the AV8802 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.

Audyssey Platinum Suite

With Audyssey MultEQ XT32, you can quickly and easily measure and configure your particular home theater setup for optimum sound quality precisely tailored to your home theater room’s acoustics. With 8 measurement points, MultEQ XT32 generates a full set of precision digital filters to deliver the most accurate and natural tonal balance. The AV8002 is also Audyssey Installer Pro ready for even more acoustical calibration accuracy.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume tames large variances in volume levels (such as loud commercials), and Dynamic EQ delivers a full range tonal balance at any volume level. Audyssey LFC (Low Frequency Containment) uses advanced psycho-acoustic algorithms to provide deep bass without annoying neighbors or other family members. Audyssey DSX provides dynamic sound expansion, dramatically expanding the front soundstage via additional front wide, front height or even front wide and front height audio channels.

32-bit D/A Conversion on All Channels; Balanced XLR Input and Outputs

Featuring premium grade AK4490 32-bit DACs on all channels, the AV8802 also features XLR input and outputs. There’s a balanced XLR stereo input that’s assignable as well as 15 balanced XLR outputs, which includes the 2 subwoofer outputs and front height/width and overhead channels.

This extensive balanced XLR compatibility ensures top performance in the home as well as the studio, especially when there are long cable runs between the AV8802 and power amplifiers situated elsewhere. 19 pre-outs (RCA jacks) provide additional compatibility with multiple power amplifier types.
