Marantz’s SR6011 is equipped with nine channel amplification, which means you can setup a 7.1.2 or 5.1.4 speaker 3D system without the need for an external amplifier. Utilising an external amplifier, though, extends the unit’s capabilities to 7.1.4 as the SR6011 features 11.2 channel processing. If not in use for 3D audio, the integrated amplifiers can be assigned to drive another pair of speakers in a second audio zone running a different source than the main room.
The internal circuit handles signals via Marantz’s own HDAMs (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) in Current Feedback mode.
The video section is compatible with the latest HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all eight HDMI inputs. With 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range (HDR), 21:9 video, 3D and BT.2020 pass-through support on every input. The SR6011 is ready for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes and other 4K Ultra HD sources. In addition, the SR6011 can upscale standard and high definition analogue and digital video content to 4K Ultra HD.
Full wireless connectivity is provided by both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, with dual antennas. Once connected, music can be streamed through AirPlay, Spotify Connect or local network storage drives, as well as from over 10,000 Internet Radio stations. High resolution audio formats and playback are fully supported. Price is £1,099.
