Marantz Unveils Newly Designed Cinema Series

Marantz's Cinema range offers a flagship preamp/processor with matching 16-channel amplifier and four AV receivers boasting HEOS alongside Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and 8K video through multiple inputs.

All Cinema Series AVRs support Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, plus 8K video available on multiple inputs, room optimisation, and additional features designed to enhance the at-home entertainment experience. Meanwhile, with HEOS built-in, you also get multi-room skills on top of a full complement of wireless technologies, including wi-fi, Bluetooth and AirPlay 2.

The all-new high-definition graphical user interface promises user-friendly operation, while voice compatibility with Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant makes hands-free control a further option.

At the top of the new Marantz Cinema Series sits the AV 10 and AMP 10 built on Marantz's HDAM (Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Modules) technology. We're assured that this makes the units quieter in operation, more efficient and more musical.

The AV 10 (£5,999/ €6,999) sports 15.4-channel processing, including four independent subwoofer outputs for the best possible bass integration and support for up to 9.1.6 Dolby Atmos layout, IMAX Enhanced and Auro 3D, for instance. In addition, Audyssey MultEQ XT32 is onboard, with Dirac Live available via an upgrade.

For music streaming and unleashing the multi-channel audio offerings, you have access to popular platforms such as Spotify Connect, Deezer, TIDAL, Amazon Music, etc.

Seven HDMI inputs offer native 8K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz passthrough, and there are three HDMI outputs, two main and one zone.

Meanwhile, the AMP 10 (£5,999/ €6,999) 16-channel power amplifier offers 200W + 200W of Class D power at 8 ohms, two-channel driven; or 400W + 400W at 8 ohms, two-channel driven at BTL (Bridge-Tied Load). It also boasts XLR and RCA inputs, Marantz HDAM design and a porthole analogue level meter.

The Cinema 40 (£2,399/ €2,799) is an 11.4-channel, 125-watt AVR with an aluminium front panel said to be “pure luxury to the touch, and that extends to every aspect of its build”. The attractive unit sports seven HDMI inputs supporting 8K / 60Hz and 4K / 120Hz passthrough alongside three outputs.

The Cinema 50 (£1,699/ €2,000) also has 11.4 channels, each rated at 110 watts. Additionally, it also loses an HDMI input.

Then the Cinema 60 (£1,249/ €1,350) drops down to 7.2 channels each with 100 watts, six HDMI inputs, three of which support 8K / 60Hz and 4K / 120Hz passthrough and two outputs – there's also a model with an integrated DAB radio dubbed Cinema 60DAB.

Marantz Cinema

Finally, the Cinema 70s (£849/ €1,000) is a slimline 7.2-channel, 50-watt AVR built for smaller living spaces with six HDMI inputs, three supporting 8K / 60Hz and 4K / 120Hz passthrough and a single HDMI output.

The Cinema 50 and 60 will be the first available at the end of October. The rest of the Marantz Cinema Series will follow after that.
