I wonder if we could start a thread specifically for 2014 Marantz AVRs. There may be some on here (myself included) that don't want to page through year-old posts in the 2013-2014 Marantz Lineup thread. And who eagerly await the 2014 models.

Ok?

I too am awaiting the new line up. In particular, I'm interested to see the sucessor to the NR 1604. Hopefully Marantz will put something out soon. It's about that time of year for new announcement. Pioneer and Sony have already put out their press release for new 2014 AVRs.

JDSmoothie, a guy whose opinions/help on Marantz products posted this in another thread. It provides a good idea of timeframe:

D&M announces Denon models in April and released in May/June followed a month or two later by the Marantz model announcement and release later in the summer.

We should have some information on the 8801 replacement, sometime beginning in Oct.

Life is enjoyable with good quality

Someone of note that wants to remain anonymous I've been talking to say new AV8801 in January 2015. I am selling my Integra DHC80.3 Processor because I want to try something different and add some high and wide speakers. I've been thinking of getting a AV8801 but am considering a high end receiver like an Anthem and still use my McIntosh amps but use 2 amps in the receiver for the high and wide channels.

Mikes Stuff
McIntosh MC207 Amps.........................DarbyVision Darblet
Marantz AV8801 Processor.................Da-Lite Screen
Klipsch Reference Series 7.2................Panasonic BluRay BDT500
Epson Pro 6010 Projector.....................Sony Playstation used for SACD and BluRay

There is likely to be a PR announcement within the next few weeks on the lower level 2014 Denon models, so the lower level 2014 Marantz PR announcement should come shortly thereafter and the mid level SR series perhaps announced later this summer. The flagship Denon model replacing the 4520CI should be released in Dec so the 8801 replacement should be released a month or two afterwards.

I am also interested in these new models. I was thinking of going Emotiva but I now want to have HDMI 2.0 support in my AVR, I had thought of taking care of 4k with a Lumagen, but that is to much for me to spend. So I rather put the money in a quality($1500) sounding AVR . A friend of mine has the Marantz 5008 and it sounds miles better then my Yamaha 673, in fact I am in love with the sound and we have the same front towers.

So would it be a safe bet that the new models will support 4k@60hz?

Yup. All 2014 models should be HDMI 2.0 to support 4k/60fps.

It's not Marantz per se, but to the extent that Denon's lineup anticipates Marantz, the next models add HDMI 2.0 as well as built in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

It's interesting that there's no mention of HDCP 2.2. I sure hope they've included that, because by the time there's a use for those 4K60 inputs, you'd likely also need HDCP 2.2 to use them.

Onkyo has HDCP 2.2 support for their new lineup.

I'm not sure what that has to do with Denon or Marantz. Besides, Onkyo doesn't support HDCP on all HDMI inputs (at least not on the receivers announced so far). Regardless, after my TX-NR5008 died, and due to their apparent lack of continued Audyssey support, I'm done with Onkyo. It's Denon or Marantz from here on out.

Simply pointing out that other manufacturers are offering HDCP 2.2 support, so maybe there is a chance Marantz will.

The Marantz AVRs at Crutchfield have gone on sale. Announcement of 2014 models can't be too far away:

Those are the previous-gen models. The x008 models aren't on sale. Nor are current-MY Denons.

Actually the E series Denon and the X2000 are on sale, the rest are not.

The X2000 seems to be the same price everywhere, there must be a lot of extra stock on that model.

No, you said "the Marantz AVRs at Crutchfield have gone on sale. Announcement of 2014 models can't be too far away." If the announcement of new AVRs is imminent, then I'd expect the current generation (x008) Marantz AVRs to be on sale, not just the older ones. I could be wrong, but I don't think the fact that older Marantz AVRs are on sale is necessarily indicative of anything imminent.

Don't get so defensive; it wasn't personal. Sheesh.

I've had my attorney review my previous post and he has suggested I amend it to read "Some Marantz AVRs at Crutchfield have gone on sale."

I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Thanks for the post, looking good so far, really like the silver look. I would like to get silver this time since my equipment is behind me, just looks classy to me.
