Marantz is proud to announce their AV8802 flagship AV pre-amplifier, which combines exclusive Marantz sound innovations with the latest video technologies and connectivity options. Most remarkably, the AV8802 features a complex build-quality with a toroidal transformer, a three piece top cover layout, all packed in a heavy copper plated chassis for the best in unadulterated sound performance. It will be available in black from February 2015 onwards.
The Marantz AV8802 11.2 channel AV pre-amplifier has been designed based on its highly-acclaimed predecessor to provide the ultimate music and movie surround sound experience. It features breathtaking 3D-sound options, including Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D (paid upgrade required), giving you the ability to add additional speakers for a truly expansive and immersive surround sound experience. The AV8802 further enhances audio quality by delicately handling all signals via the Marantz-own HDAMs in Current Feedback topology before being passed to the XLR outputs and separate power amp. Marantz HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology found on the company’s Reference Series components provides superior low noise wideband performance in an all-discrete configuration, compared to conventional op amp ICs. HDAM technology provides an ultra-fast slew rate for true wideband response and maximum dynamic range to deliver optimum sound quality with today’s high resolution audio formats.
