Add in the value for money, build quality, feature set and performance, we still think Marantz has the goods when it comes to musical home cinema and the SR7013 gets our Highly Recommended badge. 9/10 AVforums
Designed to sit at the heart of any high-end home entertainment system. With High Grade Audio Components the traditional Marantz prowess for superb music ability continues. Experience full 4K compatibility and unparalleled 3D surround sound decoding of all three formats. Compatible with the latest HDMI and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all 8 HDMI inputs and 3 outputs
Combining the very latest technology for an immersive movie experience, including full 4K compatibility and unparalleled 3D surround sound decoding of all three formats incl. Auro 3D, with precision audio engineering and tuning.
However it doesn't stop here as the unit does support 11.2 channel processing, which means by adding an external stereo amplifier a full 11.2 setup is possible.
The SR7013's futureproof advanced video section is fully compatible with the latest HDMI and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all 8 HDMI inputs and 3 outputs. With 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR), HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 and Dolby Vision pass-through on every input, the SR6013 is absolutely future-proof. And in addition eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) for full resolution 3D audio via ARC is supported too.
Built-in HEOS wireless multi-room music networking technology means the SR7013 can integrate with other HEOS products to enable you to enjoy your favourite music around your home. Explore, browse, and play your own music library, and access online streaming music service and thousands of internet radio stations using the free HEOS app, while Bluetooth and AirPlay 2 let you stream music directly from any compatible device. Use voice control in combination with an Amazon Echo device to expand the experience even further.
Powerful 9 Channel Discrete Amplifier and Eco Mode
The SR7013 features identical discrete high-current output power amplifier devices on each of its 9 channels for superb sound with both music and movies. Rated at 200 watts per channel, it has low-impedance drive capability, for excellent speaker control, and is compatible with 4 ohm speakers too. To enjoy immersive 3D sound, you can set up a 7.1.2 or 5.1.4 3D experience without the need of external amplifier, or expand to 7.1.4 with an additional two-channel amplifier using the SR7013's 11.2channel processing. Meanwhile the Eco mode provides energy savings: it features an on-screen Eco meter, and allows the receiver to be used in power-saving mode if activated by customer manually or using the intelligent AUTO mode. It will either reduce the maximum output power or adopt low-power strategies at more modest settings – and all without affecting the SR7013's superb sound quality.
Latest HDMI Connectivity; HDCP 2.2 Compatible
Along with 8 HDMI inputs, including one conveniently located on the front panel for quick connection, the SR7013 has an advanced video section supporting the latest HDMI specification, including 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 21:9 video, 3D, and BT.2020 and Dolby Vision pass-through support is available on every input, with pass-through for HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), a new broadcast HDR format. HDCP 2.2 compatibility for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content, means the SR7013 is ready for the next generation of Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes and 4K Ultra HD streams and downloads, and its video processor can transcode and upconvert analogue and digital video content to 4K Ultra HD, breathing new life into your favourite legacy sources.
