Dolby Atmos / DTS:X
Dolby Atmos: Dolby's revolutionary Atmos surround sound technology dispenses with the channel-based coding used for decades, in favour of more advanced object-based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to precisely place sounds anywhere in the three-dimensional space.

Smart TV Connectivity
Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality on some Smart TVs, it's possible to control the SR5013 with the TV's remote handset. With the receiver's ""HDMI control"" set to ON, set ""Smart Menu"" receiver control functions and the TV’s Smart Menu home screen will provide you direct access to source and surround mode selections, the main setup menu, and Smart Select configuration presets.
Advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT
Audyssey MultEQ XT automatic room acoustic measurement and correction system matches your speakers to your room's acoustics, for the smoothest, most natural tonal balance. MultEQ XT provides greater filter precision for the main and satellite speakers, with 8 times the resolution compared to the base MultEQ system, at up to 8 measurement locations.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to continually adjust tonal balance so that the sound you hear is full range, even at lower volume levels, and Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out annoying volume jumps, especially with loud commercials.
Dual Subwoofer Outputs
A single subwoofer demands optimum placement within the room for the best bass response: depending on its location, the low-frequency response at the main listening position can be uneven with audible peaks and dips. The SR5014 supports two subwoofers: used in different locations, these will even out the low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area.
Whatever your family's entertainment needs, the SR5014 delivers: you can enjoy 5.1-channel surround sound in the main room, and at the same time play stereo sound from another source in different part of the house. Simply connect a pair of stereo speakers to the multi-room amplified outputs, or hook up a separate stereo amp and speakers to the Zone 2 pre-outs, and you can still enjoy full 7-channel surround sound in the main room.
High Grade Audio Components; Marantz HDAM
The SR5014 owns very high grade audio components that have been carefully selected. The whole internal circuit further enhances audio quality by delicately handling all signals via the Marantz-own HDAMs in Current Feedback topology before they reach the speakers. Marantz HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology found on the Reference Series components provides superior low noise wideband performance in an all-discrete configuration, compared to conventional op amp ICs. Furthermore, the technolgoy 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.
Colour Coded Speaker Terminals
For easy installation, the SR5014 features a horizontal row of premium loudspeaker terminals: the color coded connection system includes a set of matching cable-labels to ensure correct speaker hook-up.
Easy Set-up, Easy Use
The SR5014's clear, easy to understand graphical on-screen display, guides you through the set-up process to ensure configuration. Its exclusive Setup Assistant and Quick Start guide combine to provide easy setup guidance, optimizing critical settings for the best possible sound quality, whatever your configuration.
Simple Smart Select Functions
There are 4 Smart Select function buttons on the front panel and the remote control: each one will store your preferred set-up – input, volume and Audyssey configuration – for a particular source. So with the push of just one button you can immediately have the SR5014 perfectly configured for anything from Blu-ray or your TV set-top box to your favourite Internet radio station.
External Control Capabilities
The SR5014 has a range of features to provide enhanced control and compatibility with 3rd party and custom integration solutions.
