AV8802A Network A/V Pre-Amplifier

Experience the ultimate in home theater enjoyment with the Marantz AV8802A network A/V surround processor/pre-amp/tuner, which combines advanced DSP and DAC technologies along with exclusive Marantz innovations such as HDAM and Current Feedback. The AV8802A also supports HDCP 2.2.

Enjoy the ultimate in cinematic surround sound with Dolby Atmos, the most advanced motion picture surround sound system ever developed. Dolby Atmos features object-based soundspace creation and reproduction, with the ability to place sound elements with pinpoint precision via front, side and surround speakers along with overhead speakers or up-firing Dolby Atmos enabled speakers.

You'll enjoy a whole new world of content thanks to the many built-in network features, which includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity, and support for internet radio along with subscription streaming services including Spotify Connect.

Dolby Atmos

Introduced in premium cinemas 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. Since its introduction, Dolby Atmos has been embraced by award-winning directors, sound designers and soundtrack mixers, and many recent blockbuster movies feature soundtracks mastered in Dolby Atmos.

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 upgrade-ready

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). The Auro-3D® Upgrade can be purchased for EUR 149.

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.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume tames large variances in volume levels (such as loud commercials), and Dynamic EQ delivers a full range tonal balance at any volume level. Audyssey LFC (Low Frequency Containment) uses advanced psycho-acoustic algorithms to provide deep bass without annoying neighbors or other family members. Audyssey DSX provides dynamic sound expansion, dramatically expanding the front soundstage via additional front wide, front height or even front wide and front height audio channels.

Exclusive HDAM Technology and Current Feedback

Featuring exclusive Marantz HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology found on our Reference Series components, the AV8802A incorporates multiple HDAM modules which provide superior low noise wideband performance in an all-discrete configuration, compared to conventional op amp ICs. HDAM technology 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.

In addition to HDAM technology, the AV8802A also features Current Feedback instead of the typical voltage feedback configuration. A Marantz innovation introduced on our very first audiophile amplifiers more than 60 years ago, Current Feedback technology provides a wide closed-loop bandwidth and very high slew rate, delivering superior fidelity with wideband audio sources.
