Marantz AV7005
Multi-channel HD 3D AV Pre-amplifier

Available Colours:
Black matt

The 7.2 channel AV7005 gives you superb audio quality thanks partially to Marantz-own HDAM modules and renown Marantz design. The audio signal is passed to the XLR outputs and the separate power amp. In addition, all audio signals enter the DSP in a variety of ways to ensure that all channels are kept completely separate, thus eliminating interfering ‘channel crosstalk’. For example, you can route the audio signal via the network jack for streaming music from your PC or Internet radio. Alternatively, you can route it via one of the six HDMI1.4a inputs, one of which is hidden behind the front flap for easy access. Here you can also find the iPod-digital-compatible USB input and a second double line display, which complements the famous elegant circular display with more detailed information. The AV7005 also takes supreme care of 3D video signals, even in stand-by mode, and sends them to the two HDMI1.4a output sockets. And there is even a Phono MM input – ideal for those precious vinyls. It supports all the latest sound formats including Audyssey DSX by using the Sharc 32Bit signal processor from Analog Devices, also for handling the MultEQ XT auto calibration. It’s all there, just waiting to perform.

Designed to match the following power amplifiers: MM8003 - MM7055 - MM7025

Marantz App for iPhone / iPod / iPad

The Marantz Wizz App transfers control of the AV7005 into the palms of iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch owners. A beautifully designed GUI combines with an intuitive layout enabling a superbly easy way to control Marantz products via a home network.

The app comes preloaded and ready to use. Key functionalities include: main zone power on/off; volume up/down; mute on/off; input selection; tuner control; surround modes; menu control by cursor; and zone 2 and 3 basic control. It features class-leading response times and the app’s bi-directional feedback with the AV7005 enables super-fast status reports on features such as volume, source, and surround mode.

Additionally Wizz App delivers control of Networked/USB-connected sources. Playback controls – such as file selection, play and stop – of connected PCs and NAS drives, are accessible via the app and users can swiftly browse internet radio stations via their iPhone/iPod Touch. Wizz App even lets you flick through PC/NAS-stored music libraries, selecting tunes by artist, album, genre, etc. For ultimate ease and looks Wizz App displays ‘currently playing’ cover art. Wizz App also opens up iPhone and iPod Touch control of additional Marantz equipment – such as Blu-ray and CD players – connected to the AV7005 via Marantz’s remote D-bus system.

Wizz App is available free of charge for download from the Apple App Store.
