Introducing the new SR5013 and SR6013 AV Receivers with Alexa integration and AirPlay 2

Jul 19, 2018

We strive to combine the latest home cinema technologies with superb sound quality, and now with the new SR6013 and SR5013 models, we have enhanced performance through careful design and selected components, while also adding features to make both music and movies more enjoyable.

The two new AV receivers feature compatibility with the latest immersive 3D audio formats, along with comprehensive network and Internet music streaming via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, and – with HEOS integration – you can share music with complete multiroom audio systems.

SR6013: the latest formats in up to 11.2-channel surround, network streaming and multiroom

Designed for superlative performance, whether with movie soundtracks, your favourite TV shows, ultra-high-resolution audio (up to DSD 5.6) or the latest streaming services, the SR6013 packs nine 185W channels of amplification and twin subwoofer outputs to make the most of Dolby Atmos and DTS: X/DTS Virtual:X soundtracks, and can be expanded to 11.2-channel working for even more immersive sound.

With no fewer than eight HDMI inputs, including one on the front panel, and three outputs the SR6013 handles all the latest and future 4K video formats – 4K/60 Hz full-rate pass-through, 4:4:4 color resolution, HDR and BT.2020, plus Dolby Vision compatibility and Hybrid Log Gamma. In addition, the SR6013 can upscale legacy video formats to 1080p and 4k Ultra HD (60Hz), converting analogue video inputs to HDMI. The SR6013 also supports eARC, for simpler high-resolution home cinema sound connectivity.

As well as playing music in ultra-high resolution from network storage or USB drives, the SR6013 can also access streaming services including Deezer, Internet radio, Spotify Connect and Tidal, and has built-in Bluetooth and AirPlay2 capability for wireless music streaming from portable devices and computers. Meanwhile HEOS integration means it can combine with other HEOS-capable products, from wireless speakers to remote amplifiers and receivers, to create a complete multiroom music system, all controlled from the HEOS app. And in countries where Alexa is supported, the Alexa HEOS skill will also bring voice control to the SR6013.

SR5013: 7.2-channel receiver for Dolby Atmos/DTS:X, hi-res streaming and multiroom

For those who don’t need the full 9.2- or 11.2-channel surround experience, the SR5013 AV Receiver offers a simpler configuration with a 7.2-channel design – yet can still support Dolby Atmos and DTS:X systems with its seven 160W discrete amplifiers making possible Dolby Atmos speaker set-ups of up to 5.1.2 channels, or DTS:X 2.1.2, 3.1.2 or 4.1.2 configurations. Like the SR6013 it has eight HDMI inputs with futureproof 4K video support, with upscaling to 4K Ultra HD (30/25/24 Hz) for legacy video sources, while two HDMI outputs allow the operation of two screens (eg a TV and a projector) in parallel.

It also features a full music streaming capability, handling files up to 192kHz/24bit and DSD 5.6 either over a network connection or from USB, and can also access services including Deezer, Internet radio, Spotify Connect and Tidal. HEOS is also built-in, allowing the SR5013 to integrate with a complete multiroom audio system, all controlled by the HEOS app, and there’s also Bluetooth and AirPlay 2 built-in as well as Ethernet and Wi-Fi networking.

There’s Audyssey MultEQ XT with Audyssey Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ, and like the SR6013 the SR5013 uses the latest Marantz HDAMs in the audio path, AK4458 32-bit digital-to-analogue converters for all channels and has an extensive range of digital and analogue inputs including MM phono for a turntable.
