Marantz SR7005
SR7005 goes on sale in August at £1400, offers six-in-two-out HDMI 1.4 pass-through for 3D

Marantz has confirmed availability for its flagship SR7005 receiver, which we first saw at the company's European press launch last month.

The 3D-capable SR7005 will be in the shops in August, at £1400.

It has six HDMI 1.4 inputs and two outputs, offering 3D support, Audio Return Channel and pass-through in standby mode, and also offers upscaling and upconversion of standard-definition video sources using an Anchor Bay Technolo0gies ABT2015 chipset.

Audio set-up is via Audyssey's MultEQ XT PRO room connection, which runs along with the HD audio decoding on a 400Hz Sharc digital signal processor from Analog Devices.

Other Audyssey technologies onboard include DSX processing to provide additional speakers at the front-wide area, Dynamic EQ for listening at low volumes and Dynamic Volume to equalise out differing levels when viewing.

More after the break

A built-in media player handles streaming music and still images, plus internet radio, there's a USB input offering digital connection for iPods, and the Marantz M-XPort will connect adapters including the RX101 Bluetooth receiver.

The amplifier section delivers 7x125W, and the SR7005 will be available in black or silver.Follow on Twitter
