It features support for NAS drives or computer as well as Amazon Prime Music, Deezer Premium+, Spotify Connect and Tidal.

It can be used with a conventional amplifier via a dedicated fix level output or connected directly to a power amplifier and speakers or active speaker thanks to built-in digital preamp functions by the variable output socket and will even share the music around the home, thanks to its HEOS integration.

The unit features proprietary Marantz Musical Digital Filtering system and an ESS9016 Sabre DAC, with dual crystal clocks. A noise isolation circuit on the USB Type B input and digital audio inputs – two optical and one coaxial – blocks interference from connected components.

Both Ethernet and dual-band (2.4/5GHz) Wi-Fi connectivity are provided.
