Marantz SR7009 Owner's Thread
 
Here is the flagship of the range 2014 manufacturer, Marantz SR7009, a superb 11.2 amplifier with an output of 200 Watts into 6 ohms per channel. It has all new with 8 inputs and outputs HDMI 2.0, Wi-Fi, integrated Bluetooth, components audiophile high-end, high-precision master clock, the HDAM modules, a 4K/60 upscaling, a 13.2 preout output a 7.1 analog input, the Audyssey MultEQ XT32 Pro with a new, more precise micro, management of DSD native gapless playback, compatibility with future 3D codecs, etc.. Marantz Announces sound quality much higher than its other amplifiers ...

Marantz SR7009: 11.2 amp, DLNA, MultEQ XT32 Pro, HDMI 2.0, HDAM, ISF, AirPlay
SR7009 Marantz, flagship model of the range 2014 11 manufacturer embeds discrete power amplifiers with advertised power 200 watts into 6 ohms. It obviously supports all HD audio formats like DTS-HD, TrueHD and Prologic IIz offers modes, DTS-Neo: X, Audyssey DSX and MultiCh Stereo. As Denon and Pioneer, this model will be updated soon to manage new 3D audio codecs (everyone understood what it was, but the names of these codecs is embargoed).

This amp would have a rigorous construction with high precision master clock, internal dampers against interference and vibrations, HDAM modules (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) circuit and Curent Feedback, high quality PDO MOSFET transistor, a DAC 192 / 24 and three 32-bit DSP, a lot of copper to assemble the elements, modules and components, connectors and screws. It is obviously the Audyssey automatic calibration MulEQ XT32 Audyssey Pro compatible derivatives Audyssey LFC Pro, Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume. with a more precise micro before. It also embeds a linear power supply with toroidal transformer.

This amp includes, too, a video scaler ADV8003 (upscaling 1080p Ultra HD), but here the upscaling UHD is possible until 60 im / s and offers configurable video postprocessing (sharpening and reducing noise). Finally, another novelty, we can now calibrate the signal through the ISF certification, rarely useful on an amp, but interesting for the limited color settings broadcasters.

This model manages the DSD Super Audio CD with native filter the DSD. Its connectivity is complete with ultra high quality connectors, and (on rare models that porix nowadays) 7.1 analog input with Pure Audio Mode therefore not (re) scanned. There is also a 13.2 PREOUT, 8 inputs (have a front) and 2 HDMI 2.0 compatible ARC, CEC, Deep Color, 3D and Ultra HD 1080/24p (Passthrough 2160p/60 and 2160p/24 upscaling, 30, 50 im and 60 / s). There are also 2 inputs Coaxial, 2 Optical, 2 inputs / 1 output YUV, 2 inputs / 1 output Composite, 4 RCA stereo, FM / AM antenna, Ethernet and USB, RS-232C ports, and 11 pairs of terminals including six assignable . And so, the little novelty in 2014, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth integrated through two antennas placed behind.

The network support is present with access to radios, multimedia and a little more sophisticated management than last year with the ability to play MP3, WMA, AAC, ALAC, FLAC 192 kHz / 24 bit DSD64 and 128 and AIFF via USB and streaming from a NAS, PC or MAC (UPnP) with management Gapless playback. It offers Windows 7 and 8 compatibility, access to vTuner, Spotify and Flickr Connect, and especially AirPlay to stream music and audio from movies from your PC, tablet or iPad iPhone. We can even connect its USB port directly to iDevices to play music (no composite to display photos or videos). Also note that a new Marantz Remote app App will be available there as well more advanced than before.

No Atmos?

I don't think the specs above are accurate. And there's no link to any website on this..

PeterK 06-15-2014 09:00 AM

Please re-read. Future 3D codecs will be supported. They are not allowed as I understand it to claim any Atmos features yet. The assumption is that the future 3D codecs include Atmos decoding.

The ability to stream DSD files from the network NAS/phone app directly to the AVR would be really cool.

I'm wondering if the Audyssey XT32 pro kit is included with the AVR?

How much is the SR7009 going to cost?

This is just marketing that is being used whenever you see the word PRO after the version of Audyssey on the AVR. It simply means that particular model is Audyssey Pro "capable" and that the Audyssey Pro kit can be used with it; however, the Audyssey Pro Kit is a separate purchase for $550 (kit) + $150 (license)/unit = $700 and uses whatever version of Audyssey is on the particular unit (ie. either XT or XT32).

Do we have to buy the kit to get the license?

jdsmoothie 06-17-2014 02:59 AM

^^
Not at all. When an installer comes in to do an Audyssey Pro calibration, the price they quote you will include the cost of their service and the cost of the license (~$400-$500), however, there are a number of members that have chosen to simply buy the kit themselves so they can do the calibration as many times as desired. Refer to the Owner's thread for more info ....

JD, if you know a price on this or if there is a 4520 equivalent in the Marantz range, can you pm me?
Cheers

KLee 06-17-2014 12:41 PM

I this is correct, this would be superior to the Denon X7200 which only has 9 amplified channels, no?

I doubt its accuracy. Some other sites give it 9 channels, and it has the same overall 710W consumption as its predecessor.

710W is the maximum power draw of the SR7009. Assuming 45% is taken up by the transformer loss, audio/video processing, etc. that leaves about 390W available for the amps.

If driving just two channels, that works out to be a little under 200W per channel. This is a close match to Marantz's marketing figure of less than 1% distortion.

If all 9-channels are be driven (i.e. party mode) than the figure drops significantly to a little over 35W per channel...;)

All manufacturer's like to trumpet their high power rating for marketing purpose.:(

kblee 06-21-2014 05:24 AM

Is there word on when this model will be available and if the MSRP will increase from its predecessor?

jdsmoothie 06-21-2014 05:30 AM

The Denon X4100W is increasing $100 over the X4000 so more than likely there will be a similar increase from the SR7008 of $100 for the SR7009 to $2099. The X4100W and X5200W are expected to be released in Aug so the SR7009 is likely to be released Sep/Oct timeframe.

As is often the case, some EU sites get it right and some don't. Better to wait for US specs to be posted.

csan 06-21-2014 09:52 AM

The SR 5009 has been officially released (http://www.marantz.de/de/products/pa...oductid=sr5009 ), so I guess in short time we´ll have proper specs of the SR 7009 :)

petetherock 06-23-2014 02:48 PM

Any ETA on this amp so far?
Third quarter or later?

atmos ?

csan 06-23-2014 04:56 PM

Hi WSE. No Atmos on the SR 5009.

DTS HD Master / DTS ES / DTS 96/24
Dolby TrueHD / Dolby Digital EX / Pro Logic IIx
Dolby Pro Logic IIz
Multi-channel stereo

I do not know if the Atmos compatibility could be achieved by any future firmware update. Probably not. Otherwise they´d do some marketing through...

The Denon X4100W will be the lowest Atmos model, so the SR7009 is likely also to be the lowest Marantz model.

No future firmware update on the lower models, as the Atmos AVRs require a minimum of 4 processors for Audyssey and Atmos to work together. The lower models only have a single processor.

Four processors! :D that's really good more computing power :o

JD, what about Sub EQ HT? I noticed that was dropped from the features/specs going into the 7009. I hope the 2 sub outputs continue to be discretely adjusted for phase and level as with 7008 model. I also noticed that I no longer see Sub EQ on the Audyssey web page. Is this now included in XT32 or perhaps performed by the receiver outside of (before) Audyssey?

Thanks in advance.

jdsmoothie 06-25-2014 05:41 AM

^^
AFAIK, Sub EQ HT is still a feature on the new XT32 models. As a reminder, the information provided on the European websites is not always accurate.

I wonder how hot these will run!

petetherock 06-25-2014 09:31 AM

I wonder if the 7009 can handle 9 or 11 channels (like the Denon 4520)?

steveting99 06-25-2014 06:03 PM

^petetherock,

Post #1 from AVS member wse has some preliminary data for the SR-7009 and it does look like an 11-channel processor + 11 amp receiver. This is yet to be finalized of course, but it looks to be what I'm looking for as the next up-grade from the NR-1504. I do like the feature set offered by Marantz and the brand has a good reputation on reliability.

petetherock 06-26-2014 12:34 AM

Thanks Steve, but I am not sure how accurate that post is?
Eg it mentions 11 channels of amp, a toroidal transformer etc... but it seems that this amp is a 9 amp, 11 channel capable amp with 710w of energy consumption..

Honestly, I wish there was a 4520 / 7200 like Marantz ...

I have used the SR 19, 18 and 12 and I am keen to get back to the Marantz sound... nothing wrong with the Denon in HT (fabulous), but in music, it's not what I want...

I am also hoping it will switch on and off my PM 11 S3 ...

steveting99 06-26-2014 12:58 AM

^petetherock,

Will have to await the official release from Marantz to get all the juicy details.:nerd: I believe JDsmoothie / batpig will provide updates along the way to keep me (and others) interested this unit. :wink:

I'm seriously thinking of up-grading from the Marantz NR-1504.

mnc 07-16-2014 06:08 AM

Still no info?
