The best contemporary technology combined with traditional Marantz quality. Thats what the Marantz AV8003 is all about. Its more than just an outstanding A/V processor.
It unites all the entertainment possibilities you want: Movies, music, photos, streaming audio and video. And the AV8003 does it in a single room or throughout your home. But enjoyment raised to the level only Marantz panache can reach.Contains 4 HDMI V1.3a inputs and 2 HDMI V1.3a outputs View larger. The Basics Lets start with the basics.
For a "net-friendly" A/V pre/pro/tuner, or for any home entertainment component, that means a high capacity and well shielded power supply so each circuit has all the current it needs and stray leakage from the transformer doesnt interfere with data signals. To that end, Marantz engineers specified a low-flux toroid transformer and encased it in an anti-magnetic steel shield for even greater stray flux control.And because interference can come from outside as well as inside, they gifted the AV8003 with a heavy copper-plated steel chassis to lock out electromagnetic and radio frequency noise as well as external vibrations. On the practical side, the chassis is shallower than conventional designs, too, so the AV8003 fits where others dont. Inside the Chassis Inside the chassis, youll find premium parts carefully arranged in a short-signal-trace configuration so that entertainment signals dont suffer corrupting influences.
And analog audio outputs include balanced connections via XLRs (configured to the "pin 2 = hot" standard) to insure noise-free data transmission from the AV8003 to a multichannel power amplifier such as Marantz new eight-channel MM8003. Audysseys MultEQ for Superior Sound As you would expect from a Marantz pre/pro/tuner, the AV8003 handles all the latest audio sources, even Dolby TrueHD and dts-HD Master Audio, for the best no-compromise sound from todays advanced media. Connections abound for both contemporary and heritage sources, too, so youll have no trouble connecting even tape or CD recorders. Audysseys MultEQ automatically creates a surround sound field thats best matched to your main listening/viewing room. Worried about the sound quality of compressed audio formats like MP3 or WMA?
M-DAX (Marantz Dynamic Audio Expander) recreates the missing high frequency spectrum so well that you might mistake even a low bit rate MP3 file for a CD. The AV8003 gives you extensive radio capabilities too. Just add an XM Mini-Tuner and dock or a Sirius Connect home tuner kit and youre ready to go. Of course, youll need a subscription to enjoy these broadcasts but having easy connectivity is the major step.And the AV8003 has done that for you already. Just to reinforce the AV8003s audio capability, its earned a THX Ultra 2 certificate! So you can rest assured that this pre/pro/tuner is at the top of the performance scale. Enough Connections for All Your Entertainment Needs Four HDMI inputs and two HDMI outputs (all adhering to the newest version 1.3 specs) complement composite, S-, and component capability. The AV8003 supports Deep Color and xvYCC Color Space for even better video performance when these technologies finally make an appearance. Speaking of video, the AV8003 incorporates the latest processing and scaling (up to 1080p) capability from Anchor Bay Technologies. So the video image youll see will be mountain-air clear. Features the newly designed Clean Front panel View larger. Excellent Networking Capabilities As impressive as these capabilities are, the real story behind the AV8003 is its networking prowess.
The rear panel Ethernet port brings the world of streaming audio and video from your computer, NAS (network-attached storage) device, or Escient Fireball, etc. To your home theater system. And that includes photos JPEG or BMP format so you can display your vacation shots on the big screen with musical accompaniment! As far as compressed audio formats go, the AV8003 handles MP3, AAC, WMA, and WAV files.
Video formats include MPEG2 and MPEG4, as well as WMV. Three zone audio and video distribution means you wont be restricted to one-room enjoyment either.
With the AV8003, you can watch or listen to movies, music, and other entertainment files wherever its most convenient. Obviously, the AV8003 belongs in advanced A/V/Network systems. So installation ease and connectivity are paramount. Weve already mentioned the rack-friendly chassis size. And theres an RS232 port for control, internal IR repeater functions (input and output), two 12-volt DC "trigger" outputs, a detachable AC cord, and an easy front panel "key lock" so younger family members or guests cant accidentally change your systems setup parameters.Youll also find two remotes, one computer-programmable full-function hand held, and a simpler "zone" remote for a secondary room. Elegantly Designed Last but not least is the face the AV8003 presents to everyone who sees it. Rather than the flat surfaces common to lesser home entertainment components, the AV8003s radiused corners, three-dimensional front panel, and simplified control layout add a touch of designer elegance that complements any décor. This new look is inviting in itself and is a reflection of the Marantz heritage of outstanding industrial design begun by Saul B. Both internally and externally, the AV8003 is the newest expression of our continual quest for excellence in performance and aesthetics. Marantz tradition and todays technology in harmony for your enjoyment. The Marantz MM8003 Power Amplifier Multi-Channel Power Amplifier. As a stand-alone multi-channel power amplifier or the perfect complement to the AV8003 preamplifier/processor/tuner, the MM8003 provides Marantz-level performance to power the most advanced A/V systems.
Output devices from our renowned Reference products. Multi-channel has never been this easy. What else would you expect from Marantz?
140W x 8ch (8 ohms) Power Amplifier View larger. In-Wall Subwoofer Included The MM8003 power amplifier produces 140 watts of high current output from each of its eight channels.And this is the "real deal", measured across the full audio bandwidth (20 Hz 20 kHz) at 8 ohms with less than 0.08% THD! In practical terms, this makes the MM8003 an ideal amplifier for a "7.1" system even if that system includes a high quality passive "in-wall" subwoofer. Alternatively, you can opt for stereo output to each of four different rooms and turn each room on and off individually! Power for All Your Entertainment Needs The massive power supply includes a multiple-secondary toroidal transformer rated at 600 VA and 100,000 µF of custom-designed capacitors mounted in copper-plated, anti-vibration brackets. Critical circuit components from WIMA and other world-class suppliers were chosen only after extensive auditory evaluation.
Current feedback topology insures astounding accuracy and control even under high-drive conditions. Smart Technology for Superior Sound Physically, the MM8003s output stages mount on an extruded aluminum "thermal tunnel" for efficient heat dissipation. With four channels on each side of the tunnel and temperature-sensing forced air cooling, this configuration assures long-term dependability. Features a "soft turn-on" circuit that prevents excessive inrush current View larger. Balanced inputs for each channel adhere to the Audio Engineering Societys "pin 2 = hot" standard.
Single-ended RCA inputs complement the balanced XLR connections. And you can choose either balanced or single ended inputs for each channel individually for easy connectivity.
Audiophile grade, gold-plated speaker outputs insure tight connections to your choice of speaker wire. The MM8003 features a "soft turn-on" circuit that prevents excessive inrush current from tripping an AC breaker or fuse.
In addition, youll find both input and output jacks for DC "trigger" pulses as well as RC5 jacks for total remote control convenience. The chassis itself is heavy gauge copper-plated steel for maximum isolation from external vibration as well as electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.And chassis depth is only 16 so the MM8003 will fit quite nicely in a conventional system rack. Elegantly Designed The subtly three-dimensional front panel adds the classic Marantz design touch. The physical attributes of extruded aluminum and glass-reinforced resin combine ideally for a shaped look and that integrates with any décor. The MM8003 is Marantz through and through.
