Features

Excellent sound quality of the latest three-dimensional audio formats, including Dolby Atmos, DTS: X and Auro-3D (optional, paid upgrade). Before transmitting signals to high-quality 11.2 channel XLR connectors or 11.2 RCA outputs and a separate amplifier, Marantz AV7703 delicately processes all the signals passing them through the proprietary HDAM amplifier modules, which can significantly improve sound quality.

Design and build

The facade of the Marantz AV7703 with an aluminum central part includes a round FL-display, an input selector located on the left and a volume attenuator mounted on the right. All controls and an additional display are under the cover. The processor uses the latest discrete HDAM amplifier modules (current feedback is applied), which provide a wide band of frequencies up to 100 kHz and a large-scale scene with fine transmission of all details.

There is a wide selection of analog and digital connectors, as well as 11.2-channel outputs (RCA and XLR) and the RCA input of the built-in MM phono stage. Full wireless support is provided by both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The unit also has Airplay technology for easy wireless music streaming from Apple devices. Full support for Hi-Res audio formats will allow you to experience incredible fidelity.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • My theater room now produces sounds that I've previously only heard in sound audition rooms, and my room is not sound treated
  • Good connectivity: it happily connects to audio from my android phone, internet radio, etc

Cons

  • The remote no longer offers the ability to directly switch between the two HDMI outputs
