The newest line of Marantz AVR’s which are expected to be
available in September have been developed to deliver captivating, multi-dimensional
sound with Dolby Atmos. The SR7009 and the AV7702 (October) models will be the
first Marantz products to feature Dolby Atmos.
With Dolby Atmos, sound comes alive from all directions,
including overhead, to fill the home theater with astonishing clarity, power,
detail, and depth.
All Dolby Atmos compatible Marantz products will have the
processing power to run a more enveloping, Audyssey MultEQ XT32 calibrated 9
channel Dolby Atmos layout using 5.1.4 or 7.1.2 configurations utilizing
ceiling mounted, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers. A 5.1.4 speaker configuration
is based upon a traditional 5.1 speaker layout complemented by 4 overhead, or
Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers. A 7.1.2 configuration is based on a 7.1 speaker
layout with 2 overhead, or Dolby Atmos-enabled speakers.
