Marantz Stereo 70s Slim AVR Promises Premium Performance
Marantz's Stereo 70s AV receiver pledges full-sized sound from an elegantly slim package.
Standing at just 11cm tall, the new Stereo 70s 2-channel receiver from Marantz has been designed to perform like a full-sized amplifier; however, according to the 70-year-old company, “the slim and distinguished design of the Stereo 70s elevates any home and is matched by the signature warm, rich, and detailed sound”.
Under the hood, the Stereo 70s boasts Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAMs), which, Marantz boasts, were developed to “dramatically outperform traditional chip-based op-amps” in conventional audio products to ensure the most musical sound. Even from this slim chassis, you can connect up to two loudspeaker pairs, which can be played separately or together.
Hi-res audio up to 192kHz 24-bit and DSD files are welcomed, making the Stereo 70s attractive for audiophiles and cinephiles alike. Naturally, you get HEOS Built-In for all your streaming and multi-room playback needs with access to Spotify Connect, Amazon Music HD, Apple Airplay, Bluetooth, TIDAL and TuneIn.
Additionally, six HDMI inputs, three of which are 8K compatible, sit with an ARC-supporting HMI output, ensuring connectivity with current and future video and gaming components.
The Marantz STEREO 70s will be available beginning September for £900/ €1,000 in black and silver gold finish.
