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.

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).

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.:(

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

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...
