Marantz has announced the SR5014 and SR6014 4K Ultra HD AV receivers. Designed with custom integrators in mind, the new SR Series AVRs boast the latest remote monitoring and management capabilities via Domotz Pro, ihiji Invision and OvrC, as well as RS232C and IP control capabilities. New to the 2019 models, both receivers support the ability to assign different music sources to the same HDMI input. This level of flexibility enables users to watch the game while switching between music playback and commentators more easily than ever.
The SR6014 features high-current discrete power amplifiers on all channels to deliver 110 watts of power per channel (8 ohm, 20 Hz–20 kHz, 0.08% THD, 2 channel driven). With low impedance driver capability, the SR6014 offers operational stability with a wide range of speakers. It supports an array of multi-dimensional audio formats, including IMAX Enhanced, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and DTS Virtual:X.
Both the SR6014 and SR5014 add Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization Technology to give users an object-based listening experience without the need for dedicated height or surround speakers. Listeners can configure up to seven channels for a 7.1 setting while the technology adds virtualized height effects.
The new SR Series include eight HDMI inputs, with one located on the front panel for quick connections. Each input supports the latest in video and picture formatting including, 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, Dolby Vision, HLG, High Dynamic Range (HDR10), 21:9 video, 3D and BT.2020 pass-through and HDCP 2.3 copy protection standard.
Both the SR6014 and SR5014 support eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel), which allows lossless and object-based audio transmission like Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Atmos from TV apps using a single HDMI cable, the SR6014 gives users the power to easily enjoy better and more immersive surround experiences from their TV audio. The addition of Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) ensures Xbox One users have a more responsive and immersive gaming experience when connected with select TV models that also support ALLM.
Leveraging HEOS Built-in, the new SR series receivers work with leading voice agents—Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple Siri and high-end smart home automation assistant, Josh.ai. With additional HEOS Built-in components, like HEOS-capable speakers or other Marantz electronics with HEOS Built-in, listeners can play all their music in one room or many. Other voice commands include the ability to switch between connected components, adjust volume, pause, mute, play a previous or next track, and more.
The SR series can also decode up to 24-bit/192-kHz ALAC, FLAC and WAV lossless files as well as DSD 2.8 MHz and 5.6 MHz tracks.
The Marantz SR6014 and SR5014 will be available July 15, 2019 at all authorized Marantz retailers. To learn more about the Marantz SR series, visit www.marantz.com/us.
