The extremely versatile AV7702mkII perfectly and expertly handles any kind of high-resolution multichannel audio format. It also offers an extended network package including audio streaming, internet radio, Spotify Connect, Pandora, SiriusXM and AirPlay. It even includes built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities.

Superb surround sound audio quality from the latest tone formats is guaranteed by the powerful 32-Bit SHARC DSP offering high channel separation that leaves no chance for any crosstalk. Tone formats include the latest decoding technologies Dolby Atmos, DTS:X via future firmware update and Auro-3D (optional paid upgrade) – which not only provide breath-taking surround sound but also open the door to 3D sound. The DSP is supported by high quality 192kHz /32 bit DAC.

In addition, the 11.2 channel AV7702mkII further enhances audio quality by delicately handling all signals via the Marantz’s own current feedback HDAMs preamp, before passing them to the high-quality 11.2 XLR or 13.2 RCA outputs and separate power amp. The AV7702mkII also takes supreme care of video signals via the eight HDMI 4k 60Hz pass-through / scaling inputs and sends them to the two HDMI output sockets or independently to the third HDMI output that is dedicated for multi-room. All of them support HDCP 2.2 copy protection for 4k UHD content. There is even a Phono MM input – ideal for those precious vinyls. Setup and operation is quick and easy via the Audyssey MultEQ XT32 auto-calibration and high-resolution Graphic User Interface. It’s all there, just waiting to perform.

In addition to Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master audio high-resolution lossless decoding, AV7702 is one of the first components to incorporate Dolby Atmos advanced surround decoding. Found in many of the world’s premier movie theaters, Dolby Atmos is an object-based surround-sound encoding and decoding system. With Dolby Atmos, sounds can be placed with pinpoint precision anywhere in the listening space, via the use of ceiling speakers or Dolby Atmos-compatible main speakers. Certified by the Imaging Science Foundation, AV7702 also features a full suite of advanced video calibration controls that allow precision fine-tuning of your HDTV.

Built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and AirPlay, Plus DLNA Compatibility 
Wirelessly stream your favorite tracks to AV7702 via built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Bluetooth boasts automatic power-on and pairing. Dual antennas provide even better Wi-Fi and Bluetooth transmission and reception coverage than a single antenna. AV7702 is equipped with Apple AirPlay, and DLNA compatibility lets you access content from your PC or Mac via your home network. Enjoy a world of Internet radio, and listen to your favorite tracks from subscription music services such as Pandora, SiriusXM, and Spotify Connect.

Easy to Set Up, Simple to Use, New Apps
The Quick Set-up guide and intuitive on-screen Setup Assistant will have your AV7702 up and running in no time at all. You can even control the setup via your PC’s web browser, or use available iOS and Android apps. In addition to the Marantz Remote app, a new tablet app is designed to make full use of your tablet’s larger screen area.

Ultra-Convenient USB Port for Streaming
A USB port, conveniently located on the front panel, lets you directly connect a USB drive or NAS drive and stream your favorite audio tracks. You can also connect your iOS device, such as an iPod, iPhone and iPad, and stream music while charging your device.

The Latest HDAM Discrete Buffer Amplifier Modules
AV7702 features the latest HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) components, which consist of matched precision discrete selected circuit elements on a compact sub-board (instead of conventional op-amp integrated circuits). The new HDAM modules provide a full 10dB of signal-to-noise improvement over earlier HDAM versions, along with ultra wide-band response (100kHz, -3dB) for crystal-clear treble detail.

Built-In Audyssey Platinum
The most advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32 (Pro ready) room correction suite adds to the most accurate calibration of the speakers to guarantee every seat in the room is a “sweet spot” for audio. Audyssey LFC reduces the transmission of low-frequency sound through walls, while Audyssey Sub EQ HT creates ideal integration of two subwoofers in the home-theater setup. Audyssey Dynamic Volume provides real-time volume monitoring and adjustment to prevent annoying jumps in volume caused by commercials. It’s also great for late-night listening. Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides precision tonal balance tailoring, so you can enjoy full range sound at any volume level. Audyssey DSX (Dynamic Surround Expansion) lets you add a pair of front wide or front height speakers to your 5.1-speaker system.

Dual Subwoofer Outputs for Better Bass
With a single subwoofer, room acoustics and the subwoofer’s location in the room may not deliver optimum deep bass response. Instead, because of room resonances, deep bass quality may be uneven due to room interaction. With dual subwoofer outputs, you can connect two subs and place them in different parts of the room to enjoy smoother and more accurate deep bass response.

Complete Customizable Control: External Control and IP Control Capabilities
AV7702 features IR remote control input and output ports for compatibility with other components in your system, along with an RS-232C serial port that lets you connect to an automated control system such as Control4. A 12V trigger output lets you connect to an external remote controllable device such as a motorized drop-down projection screen, motorized drapes, or other compatible component. Via your web browser, you can also configure and control AV7702, and use a smart device with the newly designed Marantz Remote app.
