Marantz SR5003

The Marantz SR5003 home cinema receiver is a high performance, high power design that offers outstanding ability for its class and is ready-and-waiting for High Definition audio and video. It not only accommodates HDMI 1.3a video switching with Deep Color support, it also houses decoders for Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio. A video processor for conversion and upscaling of all analogue signals up to HDMI 1080p makes sure your home theatre experience will reach new heights. The seven equal power amplifier section, with high current discrete output on all channels, can easily handle the most demanding scenes of action films, offering excellent sound quality on music playback from Blu-ray DiscTM, DVD or CD. Even your digital compressed audio in MP3, WMA or AAC-format will sound clearer and more detailed by implementing M- (Marantz Dynamic Audio Expander). With a multitude of features, like automatic speaker setup with room acoustics correction by Audyssey MULTEQ, multi-room with multi-source flexibility, Video Off mode and high-grade components, and highly accurate 24-bit/192kHz audio D/A converters, the SR5003 makes sure you experience your movies and music in true and dynamic Marantz style.

Re: Marantz SR5003

Features :

The new front panel design is your first indication that the SR5003 is something special. Featuring a combination of aluminum extrusion and glass-reinforced resin, the panel adds welcome cosmetic sophistication as it shields internal circuitry and absorbs internal and external resonances. On the practical side, a new high density fluorescent display provides all the feedback you need to select sources, modes, and signal distribution options.

As attractive as that panel is, however, the SR5003?s real story lies behind it. Beginning with a meticulously engineered linear power supply based on a high capacity EI core transformer and specially chosen capacitors, the SR5003 follows Marantz tradition by mounting all audio circuits on a separate circuit board for maximum isolation from possible contamination from video and control signals.

The amplifier section, for example, features seven voltage feedback modules mounted in-line on an extended array of aluminum fins for maximum heat dissipation. Rated at 90 continuous watts per channel, the amplifier benefits from extensive use of components chosen only after extensive ?ears on? listening tests.

And you?ll enjoy the latest high bit-rate audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD in both High Resolution and Master Audio implementations, as well as DSD (the data structure behind the SA-CD) and legacy formats such as Dolby Digital, etc. thanks to an advanced Texas Instruments microprocessor.

The SR5003 lets you get the most out of these sources regardless of your home theater room by including Audyssey?s remarkable MultEQ system. It examines your room and provides a virtually perfect acoustical environment for up to six individual seats. In addition MultEQ detects wiring errors resulting in ?out of phase? performance losses, automatically configures bass management for ideal integration of subwoofers and full range speakers, and calculates proper delays and speaker levels to produce the ideal surround sound field.

Marantz?s proprietary M-DAX (Marantz Dynamic Audio eXpander) makes even compressed audio signals (MP3s, AM/FM broadcasts, etc.) sound closer to CDs than you ever thought possible. As it dynamically analyzes a compressed signal, MDAX recreates the missing high frequency spectrum for your enhanced enjoyment.

You?ll be equally happy with video performance. Three HDMI inputs, all version 1.3a capable, and an HDMI output help you connect your high definition TV to the newest source components. The SR5003?s wide-bandwidth HDMI circuitry is ready to bring you advances like Deep Color and xvYCC Color Space And a Marantz VS3002 expands your horizons as it provides up to eight HDMI inputs for the most extensive array of source components.

For older but still valued analog video sources, the SR5003 includes extensive video format conversion and scaling capabilities thanks to the new i-Chips Technology video signal converter. This remarkable VSC inputs any video signal from 480i to 1080i and upscales it to the resolution of your choice. It even provides HDMI output for lower-resolution signals. You?ll even be able to convert 480i images to full 1080p format and view your videotapes through the HDMI link to your high definition TV. How?s that for maximum flexibility? You?ll also find dual component video outputs for additional TVs either in the same room or in different areas of your home. That complements analog and digital Zone 2 audio outputs, making the SR5003 an ideal starting point for a whole house entertainment system.

If you?re interested in satellite radio, the SR5003 lets you plug in either an XM or Sirius adaptor and enjoy your choice of commercial-free music, talk, or other programming. (Yes, you?ll need a subscription to the service of your choice.)

Other conveniences include an updated backlit remote controller, the ability to lock out front panel controls so your favorite settings can?t be disturbed by accident, and a shorter chassis that fits easily in a rack or on a shelf. A variety of system integration options (RS-232 communications port, DC trigger output, and a flasher input) let you enjoy your SR5003 as the heart of even a complex system.

As you consider the SR5003?s many advantages, remember the most important one ? it?s a Marantz. And that means you?ve selected the best.
