Product Description

Details

Overview 

For those building the ultimate home entertainment system, the AV7704 is a no-compromise 11.2-channel AV processor and pre-amplifier, designed for use with high-quality external power amplification or active speakers. It takes on board all the latest features, including Dolby Vision compatibility, unparalleled 3D surround sound decoding and HEOS music streaming, but dispenses with the internal amplification, allowing all the design and engineering within to be dedicated to producing the purest possible sound, and avoiding any possible interference from powerful amplifier sections creeping into the delicate digital and analogue signal sections. It’s long been common audiophile practice to separate pre-amplifier and power amplifier sections in this way, allowing power supplies and circuit layouts to be optimised for their specific purposes. The AV7704 even enhances audio quality by delicately handling all signals via the Marantz's own current feedback HDAMs preamp, before passing them to the high-quality 11.2 channel XLR or 11.2 RCA outputs and separate power amp. The absolute purist.

It has been designed not just as a superb AV processor but also as an extraordinary analogue preamplifier, with a specially designed analogue audio circuit board using Marantz HDAM technology. This preamp section is designed for optimal channel separation, minimal crosstalk and enhanced signal to noise ratio for precise detail resolution and stereo imaging, while an oversized power supply for the analogue section, using audiophile-grade ELNA capacitors, ensures excellent power and dynamic ability.

Marantz 2016 AVR Remote

Re-designed from the ground up, the Marantz 2016 AVR Remote app gives you unprecedented control over the latest generation of Marantz network AV Receivers, from iOS and Android phones and tablets. Along with many new features, the graphics and user interface have been completely overhauled: control power, volume, input and settings, or switch within the app to the HEOS app to access an incredible range of music content and streaming services, all with full HEOS wireless multi-room control.

 

 

Hi-Res Audio

Discover the incredible fidelity of high resolution audio with the AV7704's ability to decode up to 24-bit/192-kHz ALAC, FLAC and WAV lossless files as well as DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz tracks (the audiophile format of SACD). Play hi-res music via the front panel USB port and network sources, and also listen to other popular file types such as MP3.

 

 

Advanced 32-bit D/A Conversion on all channels

For optimum fidelity and the widest dynamic range with lowest distortion, the AV7704 features advanced reference-class 32-bit AKM D/A converters on all channels. This ensures consistent high fidelity and precise channel matching across all channels for the ultimate listening experience.

 

 

High Grade Audio Components

Featuring exclusive Marantz HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology found on our Reference Series components, the AV7704 incorporates multiple HDAM modules which provide superior low noise wideband performance in an all-discrete configuration, compared to conventional op amp ICs. HDAM technology provides an ultra fast slew rate for true wideband response and maximum dynamic range to deliver optimum sound quality with today’s high resolution audio formats. In addition to HDAM technology, the AV7704 also features Current Feedback instead of the typical voltage feedback configuration. A Marantz innovation introduced on our very first audiophile amplifiers more than 60 years ago, Current Feedback technology provides a wide closed-loop bandwidth and very high slew rate, delivering superior fidelity with wideband audio sources.

 

Advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32

 

Equipped with the flagship Audyssey suite of features, the AV7704 features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction using advanced DSP algorithms. With the supplied measurement microphone, it analyzes the output of each speaker (including the subwoofers) at up to 8 measurement locations, then generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the bets possible sound. Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels while still enjoying clear dialogue, music and sound effects, while Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides full-range clarity at any listening level. Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver a full-range balance, including deep bass, but without disturbing close-by neighbours or those in other rooms, and features a multi-step adjustment. Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual DSP tailoring of each subwoofer in a dual subwoofer setup, allowing deeper bass with improved definition when compared to a single subwoofer configuration.

 

The Audyssey MultEQ Editor App

The AV7704 supports the brand-new Audyssey MultEQ Editor App. Go ‘under the hood’, view and adjust settings for detailed tuning, customize the sound more precisely to the specific problems in your room, and tailor the sound to your personal preferences.

  • View the speaker detection results, to check correct installation.
  • View before and after results of the Audyssey calibration, making it easy to identify room problems.
  • Edit the Audyssey target curve for each channel pair to suit your tastes.
  • Adjust the EQ frequency adjustment range for each channel pair.
  • Switch between 2 high frequency rolloff target curves.
  • Enable/Disable midrange compensation to make the vocal region brighter or smoother.
  • Save and load calibration results.

The Audyssey MultEQ Editor app, for Android and iOS, is available for purchase from the Apple AppStore or Google Play Store. 

  

 

External Control Capabilities

The AV7704 has a range of features to provide enhanced control and compatibility with 3rd party and custom integration solutions, including IP control, either via wired LAN connection or Wi-Fi. For compatibility with other components there's a remote control input and output on the rear panel, along with a flasher input and a 12V trigger output, while for direct connection to external home automation and control equipment, there's an RS-232C serial port. The AV7704 also features Crestron Connected for quick and easy integration with home automation equipment.

 

Dual Subwoofer Outputs

A single subwoofer demands optimal placement to avoid audible peaks and dips in the low-frequency response at the main listening position. The AV7704 supports two subwoofers: used in different locations, these will even out the low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere in the room.

 

Multi-Source/Multi-room

Whatever your family's entertainment needs, the AV7704 delivers: you can enjoy 7.1-channel surround sound in the main room, and at the same time play stereo sound from another source in a different part of the house. There are versatile configuration options thanks to the 11 channel processing capability.

  

 

Smart TV Connectivity

Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality on some Smart TVs, it's possible to control the AV7704 with the TV's remote handset. With the receiver's "HDMI control" set to ON, set "Smart Menu" receiver control functions and the TV's Smart Menu home screen will provide you direct access to source and surround mode selections, the main setup menu, and Smart Select configuration presets.

  

 

Simple Smart Select Functions

The AV7704 has four Smart Select buttons on the front panel and the remote control: each stores a preferred setup – input, volume and Audyssey configuration – for a particular source. Push one button and the AV7704 can be perfectly configured for anything from Blu-ray or your TV set-top box to your favourite Internet radio station.

  

 

Easy To Setup, 
Easy To Use

For easy installation, the AV7704's clear graphical on-screen display has an exclusive Setup Assistant, combining with the Quick Start guide to provide guidance and optimise critical settings for the best possible sound quality, whatever your configuration.

 

More than 60 Years of Audiophile Heritage

Founded in 1953, Marantz has a long and rich history of designing audio components embraced by music lovers and critical listeners around the world. Because Music Matters so much in our lives, the AV7704 carries on our long tradition of delivering superlative stereo listening, as well as the ultimate home theatre experience.
