Digital and analogue perfection
To enjoy all your video and audio materials, the DV9600
provides ultimate versatility with high quality video and audio
performance. Succeeding the acclaimed DV9500 it takes you one
step further into the digital revolution. With the latest video
DACs, Noise Shaped video and video up-scaling up to an
incredible 1080p it offers the ultimate video performance.The
special Marantz attention to every component in each circuitry,
the symmetrical signal paths and the top quality high speed
power supply ensure the transfer of the original emotion in both
video and audio.
Connection flexibility has been extended with HDMI 1.1 and
IEEE1394 connections for uncompressed digital data transfer.
The Marantz DV9600, a worthy successor of the DV9500 and the
embodiment of top quality convenience.
The HDMI1.1 support the transmission of multichannel digital
audio signals like AC-3 and DTS. This makes the connection of
DVD player - AV-receiver - display very comfortable and easy.
Superb video performance
The DV9600 uses the latest and most advanced 216MHz/14-bit
video digital/analog converters and Analog Devices´ Noise
Shaped Video (NSV) for very high-quality picture reproduction.
This technology allows video images to be displayed at
resolutions and lower effective signal to noise ratios well
beyond what would be expected from the data converter by
making use of the latest technological advances. The DV9600
provides unsurpassed progressive scanning and is optimized
for the high resolution and low noise of the DVD-Video format
for both PAL and NTSC software. While most players in the
market offer an 8-bit i/p conversion the Marantz DV9600 has a
10-bit. It assures top quality video with a 4 times higher
Video scaling up to 1080p
resolution and therefore with less interpolation and less failures

generate an output that exactly matches the native resolution of compared to any 8-bit solution.The new 10-bit I/P converter

DTS 96/24 and Dolby Headphone
Dolby Headphone technology allows users to listen to music,
watch movies, or play video games with the dramatic
surround effects of a 5.1-channel soundtrack through any
headphone. Best of all, "listener fatigue," a phenomenon
commonly associated with headphone playback, is replaced
by a spacious, natural sound field that listeners can enjoy for
hours. DTS 96/24 allows for 5.1 channel sound track encoding
at a rate of 96kHz/24 bits on DVD-Video titles.

IEEE1394 digital audio output with flow rate control
The IEEE 1394 standard defines a serial interface ideal for
the digital age. This easy-to-use and high-speed bus easily
handles multimedia bandwidth requirements and provides a
universal interface for a variety of devices. By allowing
seamless data exchange between the DV9600 and an AV
receiver it enables the new generation of Marantz A/V
devices to operate in a common environment. This digital
connection ensures that data streams of high resolution
formats like SACD and DVD-A are transferred without
changing the integrity of the digital signal for both
multichannel and stereo. To produce the high resolution
music of SACD and DVD Audio accurately we have
incorporated flow rate control. In combination with the
SR9600 the signal transfer speed is controlled and with the
high quality clock, build in to the SR9600, the original digital
bit stream is regenerated. Any jitter created due to the signal
transmission process is eliminated by this clock. The result is
an accurate sound reproduction preserving every musical
emotion from the creator of the music.
Marantz HDAMs on all 6 channels
Audio devices are usually equipped with Op-Amps
(operational amplifiers) for which Integrated Circuit (IC) are
commonly used. Unfortunately these IC's do not match the
very high requirements of Marantz. Marantz developed it's
own discrete circuit boardsdoing exactly the same thing as
the Op-Amps, but outperform the regular IC Op-amps
dramatically in terms of the Slew Rate and signal to noise
ratio, resulting in a much more dynamic, accurate and
detailed sound.
Build in multichannel decoders
In order to benefit from the audiophile analogue audio
performance from the DV9600 we have incorporated DD,
DTS and MPEG multichannel DVD-V audio decoders.
CI friendly
To optimize equipment in terms of ease of use, Marantz has
designed the D-Bus system. Received remote control
commands are communicated via this bus. The addition of
the RS232c port allows the DV9600 to be integrated with a
number of control systems such as AMX
and Crestron. Via this interface two-way communication is
possible to control and get status feedback for example.
Environmental friendly
Every electronic equipment product is built of single
electrical components that are made of different material and
substances. Marantz assure that the components used in our
products are free of any dangerous material or substance to
keep our environment clean. We have for example removed
hazardous substances like lead in the solder.
