Built on last year’s AV7702, the new AV7702mkII (mark 2) model offers the latest in audio and video standards. It continues to offer Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Dolby Atmos while adding the latest HDMI version 2.0a compatibility with High Dynamic Range (HDR), BT.2020 pass-through support along with HDCP 2.2 compatibility on all HDMI inputs and outputs.

As with the AV7702, the AV7702mkII can also be upgraded to support Auro-3D and the Auromatic upmixer up to 10.1-channels. Furthermore, it newly adds DTS:X new object based 3D surround format (available via future firmware update) to complete today’s available 3D sound options. Pairing the AV7702mkII with a Marantz MM Power Amplifier further delivers unprecedented levels of musicality and performance, with advanced system-building flexibility for custom integrators.

The AV7702mkII is ideal for those seeking flexibility and the most advanced feature set. The audio section allows for the passing of the signal to either the 11.2ch XLS or 13.2ch RCA pre-outs, and to an external power amplifier for superior audio excellence. It offers an even higher quality dedicated pre-amplifier board with HDAM and a power supply for the pre-amplifier stage. It comes equipped with audiophile grade ELNA capacitors to give special treatment to high-resolution audio reproduction. The extended shielding for each pre-amplifier section minimize interference and gives the last finishing touch for the ultimate in surround and stereo sound quality.
