SR6012 handles DSD and 2x DSD as well 24-bit/192kHz files via a front-panel USB or streaming. Speaking of streaming, 2.4GHz/5GHz dual-band WiFi with dual antennas and built-in Bluetooth grant exceptional data transmission and help fuel Apple AirPlay, Pandora, Sirius/XM, Internet radio, and Spotify Connect provide a smorgasbord of network playback options. SR6012 also touts multi-room and multi-source capability, dual subwoofer outputs, a phono preamplifier, and an out-of-this-world-good remote app. Factor in an 11-channel processor that, when combined with an external amplifier, gives you state-of-the-art 7.1.4 sound, and SR6012 covers practically every audio base. Now for the video side.
Ready for whatever the future brings, SR6012 is fully compatible with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 specs on all eight HDMI inputs.

Marantz's three-year parts-and-labor warranty grants you bulletproof security. A better-sounding, fully featured, expertly built 9-channel does not exist. You have our Money-Back Guarantee on it.
“Of course, the best room correction system in the world wouldn't be able to make up for bad processing, preamplification, and amplification, so it's a major plus that the Marantz really shines in all three departments. I've absolutely fallen in love with its performance with movies; my feelings toward its two-channel music performance would be more aptly described as lust.”
