The new Marantz AV receiver NR1711 is a logical development of the popular model NR1710, which is made in a low-profile case, which allows you to install the component in a standard TV rack. The main improvement of the new generation of the receiver is support for video with a resolution of 8K and a frame refresh rate of 60Hz. In addition, the device supports video with a resolution of 4K, but with a frequency of 120Hz, which is important in light of the expected appearance of a new generation of game consoles from Sony and Microsoft.
The Marantz NR1711 receiver has a full set of formats and technologies that are necessary for a modern AV receiver — HDR10+, VRR, QMS, QFT, ALLM and eARC. The device is equipped with seven 50-Watt amplification channels for each channel. The receiver supports modern Dolby Atmos and DTS soundtracks:X, as well as their virtual versions Dolby Height Virtualization and DTS Virtual:X. At the same time, the device is able to provide a circuit of the surrounding sound system 5.2.2. Traditionally, for Marantz, sound calibration for the acoustic features of the room is assigned to the Audyssey MultEQ XT 9 system.
Marantz NR1711 network features include support for wireless multiroom HEOS technology and live audio streaming from mobile gadgets via Bluetooth or AirPlay 2. You can use the Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple Siri voice assistants to control your device.
The Marantz NR1711 AV receiver will be available in September. The recommended retail price will be announced closer to the release date.
