Experience the peak
of Marantz AV expertise in the new flagship SR8012 – the first-ever
11.2-channel Marantz receiver that raises the bar for home theater. Envelop yourself
in thrilling and immersive surround sound with Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro 3D,
the latest codecs able to drive overhead speakers for a true 3D sound
experience. The receiver’s 11 high-quality amplifier stages enhance audio
performance via carefully selected high-grade audio components including
Marantz Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Modules, or HDAMs, used in Current Feedback
topology. These pass the signal to the power stages, each providing 205W of
pure Marantz power and finesse to drive a full 7.1.4-channel home cinema setup
without the need for additional external amplifiers. And the SR8012 uses
advanced Marantz sound-tuning throughout, drawing in features from the
company’s Reference two-channel models, including a copper chassis and an
oversized, shielded toroidal transformer built to Marantz specification — plus
high-current main power supply capacitors also made to the Marantz engineers’
exacting standards.

With built-in HEOS technology, the SR8012 becomes a part of a HEOS wireless
multi-room music network, enabling you to enjoy your favorite music anywhere

Components; Marantz HDAM and Current Feedback Topology

Featuring exclusive Marantz HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier
Module) technology found on our Reference Series components, the SR8012
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
SR8012 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.

Advanced Audyssey
MultEQ XT32

Equipped with the flagship Audyssey suite of features, the
SR8012 features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction using
advanced DSP algorithms. With the supplied measurement microphone, it analyzes
the output of each speaker (including the subwoofers) at up to eight
measurement locations, then generates precision digital filters that optimize
each channel for the best possible sound. 

Audyssey Dynamic Volume smooths out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV
commercials), letting you listen at lower levels while still enjoying clear
dialogue, music and sound effects, and still provides full-range clarity. 

Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to
deliver a full-range balance, including deep bass, without disturbing close-by
neighbors or those in other rooms. Plus, it features a multi-step

Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual DSP tailoring of each subwoofer in a
dual subwoofer setup, allowing deeper bass with improved definition when
compared to a single subwoofer configuration.

External Control

The SR8012 has a range of features to provide enhanced
control and compatibility with third party and custom integration solutions,
including IP control, either via wired LAN connection or Wi-Fi. For
compatibility with other components, there’s a remote control input and output
on the rear panel, plus a flasher input and a 12V trigger output. For direct
connection to external home automation and control equipment, use the RS-232C
serial port. The SR8012 also features Crestron Connected for quick and easy
integration with home automation equipment.

Dual Subwoofer

A single subwoofer demands optimal placement to avoid
audible peaks and dips in the low-frequency response at the main listening
position. The SR8012 supports two subwoofers: used in different locations,
these will even out the low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere
in the room.


Whatever your family’s entertainment needs, the SR8012
delivers: you can enjoy 7.1-channel surround sound in the main room and play
stereo sound from another source in a different part of the house at the same
time. 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.

Smart TV Connectivity

Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control)
functionality on some Smart TVs, it’s possible to control the SR8012 with the
TV’s remote handset. With the receiver’s “HDMI control” set to ON,
set “Smart Menu” receiver control functions. The TV’s Smart Menu home
screen will provide direct access to source and surround mode selections, the
main setup menu and Smart Select configuration presets.

Simple Smart Select

The SR8012 has four Smart Select buttons on the front panel
and the remote control: each stores a preferred setup – input, volume and
Audyssey configuration – for a source. Push one button and the SR8012 can be
perfectly configured for anything, from Blu-ray to your favorite Internet radio

Easy To Setup, Easy
To Use

For easy installation, the SR8012’s horizontal row of
premium loudspeaker terminals is color coded, with a set of matching
cable-labels supplied to ensure correct hook-up. The AVR’s clear graphical
on-screen display has an exclusive Setup Assistant, combining with the Quick
Start guide to provide guidance and optimize critical settings for the best
possible sound quality, whatever your configuration.
