Marantz has updated its network AV receiver for home entertainment with built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The new SR5009 is expected to be available in August at selected Marantz dealers and online.
The new SR5009 AV receiver has been updated with built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
The SR5009 comes with advanced network capabilities opening up almost unlimited sources of music content. This receiver offers full audio streaming capabilities thanks to the built-in digital media player, which can decode music files stored on a PC or external storage unit streamed via the network. Almost any file is possible including MP3, WMA, FLAC HD, ALAC, WAV192/24 & AAC. Gapless, DSD, and AIFF are also supported for the full enjoyment of live concerts or classical recordings. Next to Apple AirPlay technology, the SR5009 is ready to access thousands of Internet radio stations, as well as on-demand music streaming services such as Spotify Connect.
Marantz also offers a discrete amplifier section, a 7-channel amplifier with an amazing 180W equal power per channel. The latest current feedback topology and Marantz own new HDAMs are also central, as they guarantee both power and detail, easily handling the most demanding of scenes in action films, as well as offering excellent-quality music playback. Moreover, users can easily configure the SR5009 for multi-room listening by hooking up a second pair of speakers to two of the amp channels. This lets users enjoy 5.1 channel surround sound in the main room, while others enjoy stereo sound from a different source in another room.
The SR5009 comes with no less than eight HDMI inputs and two outputs – making it immediately ready for 3D and even 4k 50/60Hz UHD resolution. The receiver features high-quality video processing technology to upscale standard of high definition video to Full HD 1080p and even 4k 24/25/30 Hz for ultimate future-readiness.
As with many of this year’s models, the SR5009 includes the latest Marantz smart ECO mode that reduces power consumption significantly when used for background listening or running on lower levels without any negative impact to the audio quality. If the higher power is required while watching a movie or listening louder to favorite music, the SR5009 automatically switches to “full power output”. The smart ECO mode has three settings: Auto, On, and Off.
In all, the SR5009 comes with a whole range of convenience features such as: Setup Assistant, auto calibration with advanced Audyssey MultiEQ XT room correction; four Smart Select buttons, Multi-Room with multi-source flexibility; and “video-off” mode to ensure that you enjoy your music and movies in true dynamic Marantz style. It also has the specially developed Marantz Remote App for smartphone and tablet. All of which makes the SR5009 a true combination of style, power and ease.
