It offers the flexibility of 11.2-channel unbalanced and balanced outputs and supports Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro-3D object-based audio decoding. Audyssey Platinum DSP Suite calibration software is built into the preamp to help you tailor the sound to your listening environment with the included setup microphone.

The AV7704 has eight HDMI inputs and three HDMI outputs so you can have up to three different video sources playing in three different zones. All the HDMI connections support HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 for UHD 4K resolution without handshaking issues. It also has two digital coaxial inputs, two optical inputs, three component video inputs, four composite video inputs, and seven stereo RCA audio inputs, along with a component video and two composite video outputs. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and AirPlay connectivity add wireless audio streaming functions. The AV7704 can be voice-controlled via your Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Siri, or ecosystem.

HDMI 2.0a Connectivity, HDCP 2.2 Compatible, and ISFccc-Certified
The AV7704 features a video section that's compatible with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all eight 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 AV7704 is ready for Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes, and other 4K Ultra HD sources. Certified by the Imaging Science Foundation, the AV7704 features a 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.
Dolby Atmos and DTS:X Built-In
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 three-dimensional space. The AV7704 features the ability to connect a 5.1-channel surround sound speaker system and up to four additional overhead or Dolby Atmos elevation speakers.

Like Dolby Atmos, 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.
Auro-3D Compatibility
This preamplifier supports Auro-3D surround sound with height channels, allowing it to decode the original Auro-3D mix and play it back in an Auro 10.1-channel configuration.
HDAM Discrete Buffer Amplifier Modules
The AV7704 features HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) components, which consist of matched discrete selected circuit elements on a compact sub-board instead of conventional op-amp integrated circuits. These HDAM modules are designed to provide a wide band response for enhanced detail reproduction.
External Control Capabilities
The AV7704 is equipped with a range of features that provide enhanced control capabilities and compatibility with third-party and custom integration solutions. For remote control compatibility with other components in your home theater system, the AV7704 features an IR (infrared) remote control input and output on the rear panel along with dual 12V trigger outputs. It can also be set up and operated by a home computer on the network with IP control, either via a wired LAN connection or a Wi-Fi connection. For direct connection to external home automation and control equipment, the AV7704 is equipped with an RS-232C serial port. The receiver also features Crestron Connected certification for integration with Crestron home automation equipment.
Built-In Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, and DLNA
Featuring Bluetooth & Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity, the AV7704 is equipped with a dual-antenna RF transceiver system for streaming in congested wireless environments. Connect to the Internet through your home Wi-Fi network (or with a hard-wired connection via the Ethernet LAN port) and enjoy your favorite tracks from streaming music services, thousands of Internet radio stations, or from your local drives, such as NAS. With Apple's AirPlay compatibility, you can enjoy your favorite tracks wirelessly from your iOS device, such as an iPhone or iPad.
Music Streaming Services Via the HEOS App
The HEOS app will open the gate to multiple steaming services to play on your AV7704. Those services include Pandora, Spotify, Amazon Prime, iHeartRadio, Sirius XM, SoundCloud, and Tidal. You can also stream music contents using the HEOS app from your phone, USB stick, or local drives such as NAS connected to the same network. Favorites and playlist functions are supported.
High-Resolution Audio Compatibility
The AV7704 lets you enjoy the enhanced fidelity of high-resolution audio tracks with the ability to 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 audiophile format of SACD) via the front-panel USB port and network sources, plus other popular file types such as MP3.
Audyssey Platinum DSP Suite
Equipped with the Audyssey Platinum suite of DSP algorithms, the AV7704 features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction. With the supplied microphone, MultEQ XT32 analyzes each speaker's output (including the subwoofers) at up to eight measurement locations and generates digital filters designed to optimize each channel for the correct frequency and time domain response. Audyssey Dynamic Volume smooths 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 tonal tailoring for clarity at nearly any listening level. Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver tonal balance, including deep bass, but without disturbing nearby 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 enhanced definition compared to a single subwoofer configuration.
Easy-to-Use Smart Select Functions
There are four Smart Select function buttons on the front panel and the remote control. These let you choose your favorite sources and each one remembers your preferred sound mode for that source.
Smart TV Connectivity
Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality in your Smart TV, you may be able to control your Marantz receiver with the Smart TV's remote control. With "HDMI control" set to ON in your receiver, you can set "Smart Menu" to ON to start controlling your Marantz receiver with your Smart TV's remote. The Smart Menu home screen provides you quick access to source and surround mode selections, the receiver's setup menu, and four Smart Selects.

    Marantz AV7704 reviews

    AV7704 11.2-Channel Network A/V Preamplifier is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Separate for a quality Home Theater I purchased this preamplifier to replace my Classe' SSP-800 that was behind the times with the latest audio & video improvements. The Marantz AV7704 provides the appropriate pass-through for true 4K HDR, and all the latest sound formats. �Everything seems to work seamlessly. �The AV7704 provides a great Home Theater Experience with the Sony�4K SXRD Home Cinema Projector (VPL-VW285ES), Classe' & Rotel Amplifiers and B&W 804s, Center Channel & Surrounds. I would highly recommend this product for the AV Enthusiast.
