Marantz AV7704 Preamp-Processor Product information
Marantz AV7704 Preamp-Processor with Alexa voice commands
11.2 channel, full 4K Ultra HD AV
Preamp-Processor with HEOS integration
11.2 Channel Full 4K Ultra HD Network AV Surround Pre-Amplifier with HEOS
Experience the most versatile home theater setup with the new Marantz AV7704 processor/pre-amplifier. It combines the
unique Marantz audiophile sound with all the latest home cinema technologies, including Dolby Vision compatibility, HLG,
and all 3D surround sound formats already built-in.
For those building the ultimate home entertainment system, the AV7704 is a no-compromise 11.2-channel AV processor and
pre-amplifier, designed for use with high-quality external power amplification or active speakers. It takes on board all the
latest features, including Dolby Vision compatibility, unparalleled 3D surround sound decoding and HEOS music streaming,
but dispenses with the internal amplification, allowing all the design and engineering within to be dedicated to producing the
purest possible sound, and avoiding any possible interference from powerful amplifier sections creeping into the delicate
digital and analog signal sections. It’s long been common audiophile practice to separate pre-amplifier and power amplifier
sections in this way, allowing power supplies and circuit layouts to be optimized for their specific purposes. The AV7704 even
enhances audio quality by delicately handling all signals via the Marantz's own current feedback HDAMs preamp, before
passing them to the high-quality 11.2 channel XLR or 11.2 RCA outputs and separate power amp.
Sophisticated engineering
AV7704 is designed to be used with high-quality external power amplifiers like the Marantz MM8077, MM7055 and MM7205.
It has 11.2-channel preouts on both conventional RCA sockets and balanced XLRs. It has been designed not just as a superb
AV processor but also as an extraordinary analog preamplifier, with a specially designed analog audio circuit board using
Marantz HDAM technology. This preamp section is designed for optimal channel separation, minimal crosstalk and enhanced
signal to noise ratio for precise detail resolution and stereo imaging, while an oversized power supply for the analog section,
using audiophile-grade ELNA capacitors, ensures excellent power and dynamic ability.
Latest HDMI Connectivity; HDCP 2.2 Compatible

Advanced 32-bit D/A Conversion on all channels
For optimum fidelity and the widest dynamic range with lowest distortion, the AV7704 features advanced reference-class
32-bit AKM D/A converters on all channels. This ensures consistent high fidelity and precise channel matching across all
channels for the ultimate listening experience.
High Grade Audio Components; Marantz HDAM and Current Feedback Topology
Featuring exclusive Marantz HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology found on our Reference Series
components, the AV7704 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 AV7704 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.

Equipped with the flagship Audyssey suite of features, the AV7704 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 8 measurement locations, then generates precision digital filters that
optimize each channel for the bets possible sound.
Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower
levels while still enjoying clear dialogue, music and sound effects, while Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides full-range clarity at
any listening level.
Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver a full-range balance, including
deep bass, but without disturbing close-by neighbors or those in other rooms, and features a multi-step adjustment.
