Marantz AV7702mkII overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy high-quality amplifier connections, Dolby and DTS height channel support, and 4K video processing with the AV7702mkII 11.2-Channel Network A/V Preamplifier from Marantz. This high-performance preamplifier offers the flexibility of 13.2-channel unbalanced and 11.2-channel balanced outputs, and delivers up to 11.2-channel audio processing. Built-in Dolby Atmos support gives you the ability to add front height channels for an immersive audio experience. The Audyssey Platinum calibration suite is built into the preamplifier to help you tailor the sound of the unit to your listening environment; a setup microphone is included.

Not only can you connect traditional audio sources like CD players, but the Marantz AV7702mkII can connect to wireless audio sources via integrated Bluetooth, AirPlay, and Wi-Fi connectivity. An Ethernet port is also available for wired high-speed connections. Additionally, Internet connectivity allows you to access Internet streaming services, such as Pandora, Spotify, vTuner, and SiriusXM. With on-board DLNA support, you can wirelessly stream media from similarly equipped devices such as PCs and network-attached storage devices.

The Marantz AV7702mkII is well-equipped for video sources as well as audio. This preamplifier features eight HDMI inputs and three HDMI outputs, which includes support for multi-zone applications. There are also six stereo RCA, two digital optical, two digital coaxial, USB, and phono inputs. Furthermore, the built-in video processor can upscale video sources to conform to 4K displays and can also convert analog video to digital. For control flexibility, you can use the included remote control, or operate the AV7702mkII from your Android or iOS smart device with the free Marantz Remote App.

Audyssey Platinum Suite
Equipped with the full Audyssey Platinum suite of advanced DSP algorithms, the AV7702mkII features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction. With the supplied measurement microphone, MultEQ XT32 analyzes each speaker's output (including the subwoofers) at up to 8 measurement locations and generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the correct frequency and time domain response. The AV7702mkII is also Audyssey Pro Installer ready.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels and still enjoy clear dialog, music, and sound effects. Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides precision tonal tailoring for full range clarity at any listening level. Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver a full range tonal balance, including deep bass, but without disturbing close-by neighbors or family members in other rooms, and features a multi-step adjustment that lets you dial in the amount of containment to your preference. Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual DSP tailoring of each subwoofer in a dual subwoofer setup, for deeper bass with improved definition, compared to a single subwoofer configuration. Audyssey Dynamic Surround Expansion broadens the surround soundstage by utilizing front height and/or front wide speakers.
HDMI 2.0a Connectivity, HDCP 2.2 Compatible, and ISF-Certified
The AV7702mkII features an advanced video section that's fully compatible with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all 8 HDMI inputs. With 4K Ultra HD 60 Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR), 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 pass-through support on every input, the AV7702mkII is ready for next-generation Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes, and other 4K Ultra HD sources. Certified by the Imaging Science Foundation, the AV7702mkII features a full suite of video calibration controls (for use by an ISF technician), along with ISF Day and ISF Night video modes.

The video processor also has the ability to transcode and upconvert standard definition and high definition analog and digital video content to 4K Ultra HD, optimizing the image quality of legacy video sources. The AV7702mkII features 8 HDMI inputs, including 1 conveniently located on the front panel, and 3 HDMI outputs, 2 for the main zone, and 1 for the 2nd zone.
Dolby Atmos Built-In and DTS:X-Ready
Dolby's Atmos surround sound technology dispenses with channel-based coding in favor of more advanced object-based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to precisely place sounds anywhere in the 3-dimensional space. The AV7702mkII features the ability to connect a 5.1-channnel surround sound speaker system and 2 additional overhead speakers or 2 additional Dolby Atmos elevation speakers. Thanks to the 9-channel processing capability, you can just add an external 2-channel amplifier and even enjoy a 5.1.4 or 7.1.2 channel Atmos experience. Along with Dolby Atmos decoding and Dolby Surround Upmixing, the AV7702mkII also features Dolby TrueHD lossless decoding and other Dolby Digital technologies.

Like Dolby Artmos, DTS:X features object-based audio coding that lets the sound designer place sonic elements anywhere in the 3D acoustic soundspace, and provides for overhead speakers to deliver an enhanced surround sound experience. The AV7702mkII also features DTS-HD Master Audio and other DTS technologies. DTS:X and DTS Neural:X Upmixer will be enabled via future firmware update, please see the manufacturer's website for details.
Auro-3D Upgrade Ready
This preamplifier supports Auro-3D surround sound with height channels when paired with the optional Auro-Codec Decoder. When paired with this decoder, the AV7702mkII is capable of decoding the original Auro-3D mix and playing back an Auro 10.1-channel configuration.
Advanced HDAM Discrete Buffer Amplifier Modules
The AV7702mkII features HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) components, which consist of matched precision discrete selected circuit elements on a compact sub-board, instead of conventional op-amp integrated circuits. These advanced HDAM modules provide a full 10 dB of signal-to-noise improvement over earlier HDAM versions, along with ultra wide-band response (100 kHz, -3 dB) for refined detail reproduction.
Built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, and DLNA
Wirelessly stream your favorite tracks to the AV7702mkII via built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The Bluetooth function features automatic power-on and pairing, and up to 8 devices can be remembered. The AV7702mkII also features dual antennas for enhanced Wi-Fi and Bluetooth transmission and reception coverage compared to a single antenna.

The AV7702mkII is equipped with Apple AirPlay, which lets you stream content from your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone, and there's also DLNA compatibility which lets you access content from your computer via your home network. Enjoy a world of Internet radio, and listen to your favorite tracks from free and subscription-based music services including Pandora, SiriusXM, and Spotify Connect (not all services available in all markets).
