Marantz Debuts AV8802 Preamp
Marantz has announced the arrival of its AV8802 flagship A/V preamplifier which, the company says, combines "the latest video technologies and connectivity options."
High-grade audio components including audiophile 32bit/192kHz DA-Converters and a high performance power supply with 4x 10.000µF capacitors leave no open questions. Thanks to its four DSP (Digital Sound Processing) engines, the AV8802 is capable of playfully handling up to 11.2 channels to fully support Audyssey DSX, DTS Neo:X 11.1, or the new immersive 3D sound formats. Whatever the sound mode, the home theater enthusiast will be flooded with the absolute ultimate in surround sound sensation.
The product will arrive in February at an MSRP of $3,999.
