Dolby Atmos Built-In; DTS:X Ready
Dolby’s new Atmos surround sound technology dispenses with channel-based coding in favour of more advanced object-based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to precisely place sounds anywhere in the 3-dimensional space. Now, you can enjoy this same award-winning technology at home with the SR7010, which features the ability to connect a 5.1 surround sound speaker system and 4 additional overhead speakers or 4 additional Dolby Atmos enabled speakers for the ultimate home theater experience. Thanks to the 11ch processing capability, you can just add an external 2-channel amplifier and even enjoy a thrilling 7.1.4 channel Atmos experience. Along with Dolby Atmos decoding and Dolby Surround Upmixing, creating surround and 3D sound from standard material, the SR7010 also features Dolby TrueHD lossless decoding and other Dolby Digital technologies.
The latest immersive surround sound system, DTS:X, features object-based audio coding that lets the sound designer place sonic elements anywhere in the 3D acoustic soundspace, and provides for overhead speakers to deliver a stunning surround sound experience, and the SR7010 also features DTS-HD Master Audio and other DTS technologies. DTS:X and DTS Neural:X Upmixer will be enabled through a free-of-charge future online firmware update (available in the first half of 2016).
By fully immersing the listener in a cocoon of life-like sound, Auro-3D puts you right in the middle of the action. Auro-3D provides an immersive surround sound experience thanks to dedicated height and overhead channels, in addition to the regular channels. The height information, captured in recording or created during the mixing process, is mixed into a standard 5.1 PCM stream that comes with a regular Blu-ray. Moreover, the Auro-3D Engine combines different technologies to guarantee an optimum 3D sound experience generated both natively and from existing audio content. It recognizes mono, stereo, 5.1 surround or an Auro-encoded signal and transforms them into 3D audio. Once upgraded with the Auro-Codec decoder, the Marantz SR7010 is capable of decoding the original Auro-3D mix and playing back an Auro-3D 10.1 channel configuration (with external 2-channel amplifier).
High Grade Audio Components; Marantz HDAM
The SR7010 features very high grade audio components that have been carefully selected. The whole internal circuit further enhances audio quality by delicately handling all signals via the Marantz-own HDAMs (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) in Current Feedback topology before passing them on to the power stage to fire up the connected speakers.
Built-in Bluetooth & Wi-Fi; Music Streaming; AirPlay
Featuring Bluetooth & Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity, the SR7010 is equipped with an advanced dual diversity antenna transceiver system for robust and error-free streaming, even in congested RF environments. Connect to the internet through your home Wi-Fi network (or with a hard-wired connection via the RJ-45 Ethernet LAN port) and enjoy your favourite tracks from streaming music service Spotify Connect, as well as from thousands of internet radio stations around the world.
With AirPlay, you can enjoy listing to your favourite tracks wirelessly from your iOS device, including the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad, and the SR7010 is also DLNA 1.5 certified for compatibility with your home PC or Mac.

The SR7010 features 8 HDMI inputs, including 1 conveniently located on the front panel, and 3 HDMI outputs – 2 for the main zone, and 1 for the 2nd zone.
Powerful 9 Channel Discrete Amplifier with Eco Mode
The SR7010 features a sophisticated power amplifier section with all 9 channels configured identically, employing discrete high current capable power transistors. Each channel is rated at 200 watts (6 ohms, 1% THD, 1ch driven), and all channels are able to safely drive lower impedance speakers (down to 4 ohms). Our new advanced Eco amplifier mode adjusts power consumption according to signal level, and there’s an on-screen Eco Mode display that lets you see the power consumption reduction in real time.
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.
Easy To Setup, Easy To Use
Featuring a clear, easy to understand graphical on-screen display, the SR7010 guides you through the setup process that ensures the right configuration the very first time. Our exclusive Setup Assistant and the included Quick Start guide together provide easy setup guidance, optimizing critical settings for the best possible sound quality with your particular equipment configuration.
Audyssey Platinum DSP Suite
Equipped with the full Audyssey Platinum suite of advanced DSP algorithms, the SR7010 features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction. With the supplied measurement microphone, MultEQ XT32 analyzes each speaker’s output (including the subwoofers) at up to 8 measurement locations and generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the correct frequency and time domain response. The SR7010 is also Audyssey Pro Installer ready.
Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels and still enjoy clear dialog, music and sound effects. Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides precision tonal tailoring for full range clarity at any listening level.
Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver a full range tonal balance, including deep bass, but without disturbing close-by neighbors or family members in other rooms, and features a multi-step adjustment that lets you dial in the amount of containment to your preference.
Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual DSP tailoring of each subwoofer in a dual subwoofer setup, for deeper bass with improved definition, compared to a single subwoofer configuration. Audyssey Dynamic Surround Expansion dramatically broadens the surround soundstage for the ultimate surround sound experience with the option of connecting front height and/or front wide speakers.
You can enjoy your favorite movie in the main room, while others enjoy stereo sound from different sources in 2 other rooms. The SR7010 is equipped with speaker connections for a 2nd stereo zone, and pre-amp outputs for a 3rd stereo zone. There’s also a dedicated HDMI output for 2nd zone audio and video so you can watch and enjoy 2 different video sources at the same time.
Dual Subwoofer Outputs
With a single subwoofer, optimum placement within the room for the best bass response isn’t always possible. Depending on the location, bass response at the main listening position can be uneven with audible peaks and dips. With 2 subwoofers positioned in different locations, response averaging evens out the low bass range for more accurate bass anywhere in the listening area.
Color Coded 4-Way Speaker Terminals
The high quality speaker terminals feature multi-way connection capability to handle a number of speaker cable terminations including banana plugs. They’re also color coded for correct hookup the very first time and color coded speaker cable labels are included.
