AV8805 supports 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 pass-through on every input.

The AV8805 features the latest Marantz proprietary HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) components, which consist of matched-precision discrete selected circuit elements on a compact sub-board along with ultra-wide-band response (100 kHz, -3 dB) for an open soundstage with refined detail reproduction.
"If you couldn't already tell, the Marantz AV8805 is an absolute winner. It combines high-performance object-based surround with cutting-edge video management, paired with a very good room correction, as well as a feature set that is hard to replicate at any price."
"The Marantz AV8805 is a great benchmark for a flagship A/V preamp/processor. It is loaded with state-of-the-art functionality and yet the AV8805 is easy to use and configure."
"When you start digging into the specs sheet of the MODEL 30, though, you start to see the proof in the pudding."
"Marantz’s new flagship surround processor makes the most of the Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro-3D formats while providing a notable sound quality improvement over its predecessor."
"The AV8805 represents some of the most advanced processing currently available with future expandability to extend life and reduce the fear of obsolescence. This is one of the first AV processors that supports ALL 3 immersive surround formats, 3 pairs of height channels, and a HDMI 2.1 upgradability path. While its asking price may seem a bit spendy, it's really not when you consider the arsenal of processing power this baby has and how flexible it will be for even the most upscale home theater installations."
