Audiophile-Conscious Hub Takes the Utmost Care of Audio and Video Signals
The 11.2-channel AV7703 further enhances audio quality by delicately handling all signals via Marantz's own current feedback HDAMs preamp before passing them to the high-quality 11.2 XLR or 13.2 RCA outputs and separate power amp. AV7703 also takes supreme care of video signals via the eight HDMI 4k 60Hz pass-through/scaling inputs and sends them to the two HDMI output sockets or independently to the third HDMI output that is dedicated for multi-room. All of them support HDCP 2.2 copy protection for 4k UHD content.

HDMI 2.0a Connectivity and HDCP 2.2 Compatibility on All Eight HDMI Inputs
Prepared for the future, AV7703 features an advanced video section fully compatible with the latest HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all eight HDMI inputs. With 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 pass-through support on every input, AV7703 is ready for the next generation of Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, and other 4K Ultra HD sources. Certified by the Imaging Science Foundation, AV7703 features a full suite of video calibration controls (for use by an ISF technician), along with ISF Day and ISF Night video modes. The video processor also has the ability to transcode and upconvert standard definition and high-definition analog and digital video content to 4K Ultra HD.

Get Ready to Experience Dolby Atmos and DTS:X: AV7703 Makes It Happen
Dolby's new Atmos surround sound technology dispenses with channel-based coding in favor of more advanced object-based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to precisely place sounds anywhere in the three-dimensional space. Now, you can enjoy this same award-winning technology at home with AV7703, which features the ability to connect a 5.1-surround sound speaker system and two additional overhead speakers or two additional Dolby Atmos elevation speakers for the ultimate home-theater experience. Thanks to the 9-ch. processing capability, you can just add an external two-channel amplifier and even enjoy a thrilling 5.1.4- or 7.1.2-channel Atmos experience. AV7703 also features Dolby TrueHD lossless decoding and other Dolby Digital technologies. The latest immersive surround sound system, DTS:X, features object-based audio coding that lets the sound designer place sonic elements anywhere in the 3D acoustic soundspace. AV7703 also features DTS-HD Master Audio and other DTS technologies. DTS:X and DTS Neural:X Upmixer will be enabled via future firmware update.

Future Proof: Auro-3D Upgrade Available
Auro-3D provides an immersive surround sound experience thanks to dedicated height and overhead channels, in addition to the regular channels. The height information, captured in recording or created during the mixing process, is mixed into a standard 5.1 PCM stream that comes with a regular Blu-ray. Moreover, the Auro-3D Engine combines different technologies to guarantee an optimum 3D sound experience generated both natively and from existing audio content. It recognizes mono, stereo, 5.1 surround or an Auro-encoded signal and transforms them into 3D audio. Once upgraded with the Auro-Codec decoder, AV7703 is capable of decoding the original Auro-3D mix and playing back an Auro-3D 10.1-channel configuration (with external two-channel amplifier).

HDAM Discrete Buffer Amplifier Modules for Amazing Sound Quality
AV7703 features the latest HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) components, which consist of matched precision discrete selected circuit elements on a compact sub-board, instead of conventional op-amp integrated circuits. These advanced HDAM modules provide a full 10dB of signal-to-noise improvement over earlier HDAM versions, along with ultra wide-band response (100 kHz, -3dB) for a wide-open soundstage with refined detail reproduction.

Built-in Bluetooth, Built-in Wi-Fi and AirPlay, and DLNA
Wirelessly stream your favorite tracks to AV7703 via built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The Bluetooth function features automatic power on and pairing, and up to 8 devices can be remembered. AV7703 also features dual antennas for even better Wi-Fi and Bluetooth transmission and reception coverage. It is also equipped with Apple AirPlay, and DLNA compatibility lets you access content from your PC or Mac via your home network. Enjoy a world of Internet radio, and listen to your favorite tracks from subscription music services including Spotify Connect, Pandora, and SiriusXM.

Effortless Setup, Outstanding Control, Even a Handy USB Port
A handy Quick Setup guide, along with the intuitive on-screen Setup Assistant, will have your AV7703 up and running with a minimum of fuss and bother. You can even control the setup via your PC's web browser, or use the available iOS and Android apps with your favorite smart device. For easy setup and use, AV7703 can be controlled by the supplied remote and also be controlled by your favorite smartphone and tablet devices. Marantz Remote app is available in both iOS and Android versions. A USB port, conveniently located on the front panel, lets you connect a USB drive directly and stream your favorite audio tracks. You can also connect your iOS device, such as an iPod, iPhone and iPad, and stream music while charging your device at the same time.

Fully Loaded Audyssey Platinum Suite Gives You Precision Sound
Equipped with the full Audyssey Platinum suite of advanced DSP algorithms, AV7703 features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction. With the supplied measurement microphone, MultEQ XT32 analyzes each speaker's output (including the subwoofers) at up to 8 measurement locations and generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the correct frequency and time domain response. AV7703 is also Audyssey Pro Installer ready. Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels and still enjoy clear dialog, music and sound effects. Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides precision tonal tailoring for full range clarity at any listening level. Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver a full range tonal balance, including deep bass, but without disturbing close-by neighbors or family members in other rooms, and features a multi-step adjustment that lets you dial in the amount of containment to your preference. Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual DSP tailoring of each subwoofer in a dual subwoofer setup, for deeper bass with improved definition, compared to a single subwoofer configuration. Audyssey Dynamic Surround Expansion dramatically broadens the surround soundstage for the ultimate surround sound experience with the option of connecting front height and/or front wide speakers.

Multiple Control Options at Your Fingertips
AV7703 is equipped with a range of features that provide enhanced control capabilities and compatibility with third party and custom integration solutions. For remote control compatibility with other components in your home theater system, AV7703 features an IR (infrared) remote control input and remote control output on the rear panel, along with dual 12V trigger outputs. AV7703 can also be set up and operated by a home computer on the network via IP control, either via wired LAN connection or via Wi-Fi wireless connection. For direct connection to external home automation and control equipment, AV7703 is equipped with an RS-232C serial port. AV7703 also features Control4 SDDP (Simple Device Detection Protocol) and Crestron Connected certification for quick and easy integration with Control4 and Crestron home automation equipment.
