Installers eager to get an earful of the new 11.2 channel Marantz SR8012 AV amplifier should beat a path to the AWE Smart Apartment in Epsom. The distributor has installed the beast in its 7.4.4 cinema room.

The SR8012, Marantz’s first-ever 11.2-channel AV amplifier, is compatible with Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro 3D sound formats and can be used in a 7.1.4-channel or 9.1.2-channel configuration.

Power output is rated at 205W per channel, and is High-Res audio friendly. The receiver can decode up to 24-bit/192-kHz ALAC, FLAC, and WAV lossless files as well as DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz tracks via the front panel USB port and network sources.

HEOS integration also means the AVR can also be paired with other HEOS speakers in a whole house network. It’s Bluetooth and AirPlay compatible.

The SR8012 is equipped for integration with third party home automation systems, with IP Control, 12V triggers, RS232 control, and Crestron Connected support. Set up and room equalisation are simplified by a Setup Assistant and Audyssey MultEQ XT32, which includes Sub EQ HT, Dynamic Volume, and DynamicEQ.

As well as experiencing the Marantz SR8012 in the AWE cinema, integrators are invited to learn more about the product, and the right projects to specify it into, in the Designing an Immersive Audio Home Cinema course that AWE offers through its Smart Home Academy.
