Features

Marantz SR6014 is a 9.2-channel AV receiver that develops 185 W per channel at 6 Ohm load and provides object-oriented 3D sound thanks to support for Dolby Atmos and DTS: X formats (7.1.2 or 5.1.4). When you connect an additional power amplifier to the Marantz SR6014 receiver, you can build a 7.1.4-channel system, and when organizing a simpler surround sound system, you can connect speakers in an additional zone to two free amplifier channels. The device works with Ultra HD resolution and can scale video to 4K. For amplification, the Marantz SR6014 receiver uses HDAM modules with current feedback, which allow you to get a clean, dynamic sound and cope with a low-impedance load (4 ohms).

Design and build

Each channel of the Marantz SR6014 receiver is equipped with an AKM AK4458VN DAC (32 bit). Hi-Res files (including DSD up to 5.6 MHz) are played via USB and LAN.

Connectivity

Eight HDMI inputs support Ultra HD (60 Hz), HDCP 2.2, BT.2020 color space, and high dynamic range content (HDR10, Dolby Vision, and HLG). Three HDMI outputs allow you to simultaneously use the projector and TV, as well as send the AV signal to zone 2. One of them has an extended eARC return channel (with support for DTS: X and Dolby Atmos). There is a set of S / PDIF inputs, 7.1-channel input, 11.2-channel Pre Out and MM phono equalizer. Speakers are connected using eleven pairs of screw terminals (each pair is marked with its own color).

Setup

The Audyssey MultEQ XT32 system calibrates the speakers connected to the receiver. Supported technology Dynamic EQ (corrects the frequency response, providing accurate sound with full bass even at low volumes), Dynamic Volume (equalizes the volume level), Sub EQ HT (optimizes the operation of two subwoofers) and LFC (prevents the penetration of bass in adjacent rooms).

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • The sound is phenomenal for both video and music sources
  • Built-in HEOS technology allows you to receive music from a wide variety of services

Cons

  • The "porthole" design on this model is next to useless
