The new top quality SR8002 AV receiver is simply the best AV receiver ever offered by Marantz. This leading model from the new upgraded Marantz AV-receiver series easily surpasses the performance levels of even separate components in both sheer brawn and subtle sophistication.

Technologies like THX Select2 provide uncompromised 7.1 channel playback of any multi-channel program, whether it?s movie soundtracks or music, over the widest possible seating area. The incorporated 4in and 2out HDMI 1.3 sockets with deep colour technology the SR8002 is ready to handle current as well as tomorrow?s technology as full HD video and HD audio as Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD. Together with a built in audio enhancer for compressed audio as mp3, WAV and AAC, upconversion from analogue signals including I/P conversion to HDMI and possibilities to create a multi room audio and video environment the SR8002 is an investment for many years to come.
