To optimize equipment in terms of ease of use, Marantz has designed the D-Bus system. Received remote control commands are communicated via this bus. This enables equipment without IR-receiver like tuners or hidden system together with an external IR eye to be controlled via the bypacked Marantz System Remote Controller.
Deep Color™ lets HDTVs and other displays go from millions of colours to billions of colours allowing consumers to enjoy unprecedented vividness and accuracy of colour on their displays. Deep Color™ eliminates on-screen colour banding, for smooth tonal transitions and subtle gradations between colours. It enables increased contrast ratio, and can represent many times more shades of gray between black and white.

HDMI 4in 1out
HDMI combines high-definition video and superb audio in a single digital interface with a bandwidth of up to 10 Gigabits/ second. HDMI complies with High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) technology protecting high-value content from unauthorized reproduction and distribution. HDMI is the only interface in consumer electronics that can carry both high-definition video and multi-channel audio e.g. Dolby Digital and DTS in all HD formats, including 720p, 1080i and 1080p. With only a single cable connection all information can be digitally transmitted. The latest HDMI1.3 supports higher resolution audio formats as Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD and a higher bandwidth for higher framerates and extended degradation in colour space.
