For the ultimate surround sound experience, the AV8801 also features expanded multi-channel decoding, including Audyssey DSX and DTS Neo:X, giving you the ability to add additional front height and width channels for a truly expansive and immersive surround sound experience. You can imagine all the amp switching, etc needed to be done to power up/down, switching modes, etc. So with this, it uses HDMI 1.4, which switches some things automatically. Both features were previously only found in the SR7007 and above, but have now trickled their way down to all of the current SR receivers.
How can you get your unit serviced? 1) If your unit needs serviced and is out of its warranty period contact Marantz UK customer service in writing. Additionally, whenever Marantz or Denon release new receivers, someone is bound to claim the companies simply clone each others’ designs. Up until now, we’ve just taken Marantz at their word that there really are internal differences between the brands. But, we’re confident that between Marantz’s and Denon’s offerings, there’s sure to be a receiver for most anyone. The power capacitors are also larger in the SR7008, 15,000uF compared to 12,000uF. Granted, the larger caps are for supporting the extra two channels of amplification, not for providing more power per channel.
Multichannel analog connectivity includes 7.1-channel inputs and 7.2channel outs.
