The device is equipped with a 15.2-channel audio output made on RCA and XLR connectors, which provides high flexibility of connection, and also (when using balanced connection) can drastically reduce the level of interference with long connecting cables. The surround sound processor in the Marantz AV8805 supports all existing formats, including object-oriented Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro-3D. All channels of the AV processor use high-end DACs with 24-bit / 192 kHz parameters, which ensures accurate sound processing and even surrounding space. The device uses proprietary HDAM modules that provide signal amplification with minimal distortion over a wide frequency range. Here we have 13.2 and 11.2 channels in Marantz AV8805 vs Yamaha CX-A5200.
The CX-A5200 includes the two latest ESS SABER PRO Premier DAC (ES9026 PRO) DACs that deliver superior 32-bit audio quality. In addition, DACs minimize noise and provide an exceptionally high signal-to-noise ratio. Housing stability is a key factor in improving performance and producing deep, penetrating sound. In the CX-A5200, this is facilitated by a thick bottom plate that balances the entire structure to provide optimal sound.
