This receiver lets you discover the incredible fidelity of high-resolution audio tracks with the ability to decode up to 24-bit/192-kHz ALAC, FLAC and WAV lossless files as well as DSD 2.8MHz and 5.6MHz tracks (the audiophile format of SACD) via the front panel USB port and network sources, and you can also listen to other popular file types such as MP3.

Audyssey MultEQ for simple set-up

Via the supplied measuring microphone and mic stand, Audyssey MultEQ measures all the speakers in your home theater during setup, including the subwoofer, and then generates multiple high precision DSP room acoustic correction filters, together providing the smoothest, most natural tonal balance - regardless of the brand(s) or model(s) of speaker.

Audyssey Dynamic EQ features advanced psycho-acoustic processing to deliver full range clear-dialog and wide-band response, even at reduced volume levels, delivering cinema-level clarity whatever listening level you choose, while Audyssey Dynamic Volume avoids nasty shocks when what you're watching switches from content to commercials or announcements, creating an easier listening experience.

The Audyssey MultEQ Editor App

The NR1608 supports the Audyssey MultEQ Editor App. Go ‘under the hood’, view and adjust settings for detailed tuning, customize the sound more precisely to the specific problems in your room, and tailor the sound to your personal preferences.

• View the speaker detection results, to check correct installation.
• View before and after results of the Audyssey calibration, making it easy to identify room problems.
• Edit the Audyssey target curve for each channel pair to suit your tastes.
• Adjust the EQ frequency adjustment range for each channel pair.
• Switch between 2 high-frequency rolls off target curves.
• Enable/Disable midrange compensation to make the vocal region brighter or smoother.
• Save and load calibration results.

The Audyssey MultEQ Editor app, for Android and iOS, is available for purchase from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Dual Subwoofer Outputs

This receiver features dual subwoofer outputs, which lets you connect two smaller subwoofers instead of a single, larger sub, and enjoy the benefits of response averaging by having two subs in different locations in the room. With dual subwoofers, deep bass is smoother and more detailed, minimizing the peaks and dips that often result with a single subwoofer setup.

Multi-Source/Multi-Room

You can enjoy your favorite movie in the main room, while others enjoy stereo sound from different sources in 2 other rooms. The SR7011 is equipped with speaker connections, as well as pre-amp outputs for a 2nd zone and 3rd zone. There's also a dedicated HDMI output for 2nd zone audio and video so you can have 2 different video sources in 2 different rooms at the same time. Any network source, as well as Bluetooth and AirPlay streamt content can be enjoyed in 2nd and 3rd zone too.

Smart TV Connectivity

Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality in your Smart TV, you may be able to control your Marantz AVR with the Smart TV's remote control. With "HDMI control" set to ON in your receiver, you can set "Smart Menu" to ON to start controlling your Marantz AVR with your Smart TV's remote. The Smart Menu home screen provides you quick access to source and surround mode selections, the AVR's setup menu, and 4 Smart Selects.

Simple Smart Select Functions

4 Smart Select function buttons on the remote control will store your preferred setup - input, volume, and Audyssey configuration - for particular sources. The push of just one button has this receiver perfectly configured for anything from Blu-ray or your TV set-top box to your favorite Internet radio station.
