Experience the Thrills Dolby Atmos Offers, and Know You're Set Up for DTS:X
Dolby 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 SR7012, which features the ability to connect a 5.1 surround sound speaker system and four additional overhead speakers or four additional Dolby Atmos elevation speakers for the ultimate home-theater experience. Thanks to 11-channel processing capability, you can just add an external two-channel amplifier and even enjoy a thrilling 7.1.4 channel Atmos experience. Along with Dolby Atmos decoding and Dolby Surround Upmixing, SR7012 also features Dolby TrueHD lossless decoding and other Dolby Digital technologies. DTS:X features object-based audio coding that lets the sound designer place sonic elements anywhere in the 3D acoustic soundspace, and provides for overhead speakers to deliver a stunning surround sound experience.
HDMI 2.0a Connectivity, HDCP 2.2 Compatibility
SR7012 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, SR7012 is ready for the next generation of Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes, and other 4K Ultra HD sources.

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.
Auro-3D for the Ultimate Surround-Sound Experience
By fully immersing the listener in a cocoon of lifelike sound, Auro-3D puts you right in the middle of the action. 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. SR7012 is capable of decoding the original Auro-3D mix and playing back an Auro-3D 10.1 channel configuration (with external two-channel amplifier).
Marantz HDAM Circuitry Abets a Powerful Nine-Channel Discrete Amplifier
SR7012 features high-grade audio components. The whole internal circuit further enhances audio quality by delicately handling all signals via Marantz's HDAMs (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) in current feedback topology before passing them on to the power stage to fire up the connected speakers. All nine nine channels on SR7012 are configured identically, employing discrete high-current-capable power transistors. Each channel is rated at 125 watts (8 ohms, 20Hz~20kHz, .05%THD), and all channels are able to safely drive lower impedance speakers (down to 4 ohms). An advanced ECO amplifier mode adjusts power consumption according to signal level, and an onscreen ECO Mode display lets you see the power consumption reduction in real time.
Stream Away: Built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Apple AirPlay
Featuring Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity, as well as Apple AirPlay, SR7012 is equipped with an advanced dual diversity antenna transceiver system for robust and error-free streaming, even in congested RF environments. Connect to the Internet through your home Wi-Fi network (or with a hard-wired connection via the RJ-45 Ethernet LAN port) and enjoy your favorite tracks from streaming music services such as Pandora, Sirius XM and Spotify Connect, as well as from thousands of Internet radio stations around the world.
Use the Front-Panel USB Port to Stream Hi-Res Audio and a SmartTV to Control It All
A convenient front-panel USB port stream tunes directly from your iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad and charges your device at the same time. You can also connect a USB drive and listen to MP3 and WAV files. SR7012 even features high-resolution audio compatibility, including DSD (2.8 MHz) and FLAC lossless decoding up to 24-bit/192kHz. And, via the HDMI CEC functionality in your Smart TV, you may be able to control your Marantz AVR with the Smart TV's remote control.
Onboard Room Acoustic Correction Via Audyssey Platinum DSP Suite
Equipped with the full Audyssey Platinum suite of advanced DSP algorithms, SR7012 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. 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.
