Details from Marantz

    Dolby Atmos Surround Decoding

    Introduced in premier movie theaters in 2012, Dolby Atmos has become the de facto standard for enveloping and immersive motion picture sound, and features the ability to dramatically expand the dimensional sound experience through the use of multiple overhead loudspeakers that can be individually addressed, to allow pinpoint acoustical imaging at precise locations within the room. Now, Marantz brings the Dolby Atmos experience home, and the AV8802A features outputs that can be configured for 1 or 2 pairs of overhead speakers and/or add–on Dolby Atmos speaker modules. The Atmos decoder also features upconversion from conventional surround soundtracks to deliver the ultimate three–dimensional experience with your favorite movies and concerts.

    Auro–3D Included

    Auro–3D® is the next generation three–dimensional audio standard. It provides a realistic sound experience unlike anything before. By fully immersing the listener in a cocoon of life–like sound, Auro–3D® creates the sensation of actually being there. Thanks to a unique 'Height' channel configuration, recorded acoustic reflections are reproduced by these speakers and are heard naturally due to the fact that sounds originate from around as well as above the listener. Once upgraded with the Auro®– Codec Decoder, the AV8802A is capable of decoding the original Auro–3D® mix and playing back an Auro 10.1 channel configuration (including Voice of God channel). This amazing sonic experience is now included in the Marantz AV8802A Network Surround Preamplifier.

    Advanced Front Soundstage Expansion Modes

    In addition, the AV8802A features multiple front soundstage expansion modes. DTS Neo:X | 11.1 provides additional front height and front width channel options. Audyssey DSX also provides for front height and width channels.

    Advanced Wireless Networking with Bluetooth® and Wi–Fi®

    Stream your favorite audio tracks wirelessly to the AV8802A thanks to the built–in Bluetooth and Wi–Fi (b/g/n) wireless functions. Equipped with dual Bluetooth/Wi–Fi antennas, the AV8802A lets you enjoy wireless streaming from your smartphone, tablet and portable music player. Via the Wi–Fi or LAN connection to your home network, the AV8802A opens up a whole world of streaming audio capabilities, letting you listen to any of thousands of internet radio stations. You can also enjoy streaming music from subscription services including SiriusXM and Pandora and listen to Spotify via the Spotify Connect app on your smart device.

You can also connect the AV8802A directly to your home network via the wired RJ–45 LAN connection, and there's a convenient front panel USB port for direct connection and charging to your iPod®, iPod touch, iPhone and iPad, and connection to a portable USB device.

    Audyssey Dynamic Volume

    Taming large variances in volume levels (such as loud commercials), Audyssey Dynamic Volume delivers a full range tonal balance at any volume level with Audyssey EQ. Audyssey LFC (Low Frequency Containment) uses advanced psycho–acoustic algorithms to provide deep bass without annoying neighbors or other family members.
