The Marantz AV8805A is a no-compromise multi-channel AV processor and preamplifier designed specifically for use with high-quality external power amplifiers or powered speakers.

Marantz AV8805A - High-end home cinema with extraordinary sound performance

For maximum flexibility with music and films, the preamplifier has a balanced XLR stereo input as well as freely assignable, balanced 15.2 channel XLR preamplifier outputs. This comprehensive symmetry or XLR compatibility ensures high-end performance in the home and studio, while the 15.2 channel RCA preamp outputs provide additional compatibility with multiple high-quality external power amplifiers or active speakers.

In addition, the Marantz AV8805A further improves the audio quality by sensitively processing all signals via the self-developed Marantz HDAM modules in current feedback topology before they are passed on to the XLR or RCA outputs and the separate power amplifier.

The latest HDMI technologies ensure excellent video performance. The Marantz AV8805A has eight HDMI inputs and three HDMI outputs for all your favorite sources. A dedicated 8K HDMI input supports 8K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz passthrough, Dolby Vision, HLG, HDR10+, 21:9 video format, 3D and BT.2020 passthrough. In addition, the copy protection standard HDCP 2.3 and the latest video functions are supported on all HDMI inputs. .
