Features

Marantz SR7013 is a 9.2-channel model of an AV receiver that understands such modern three-dimensional sound formats as DTS: X, Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D. The receiver supports the latest DTS Virtual: X format. When using an AV receiver with soundtracks recorded in Dolby Atmos, you can use the 7.1.2- or 5.1.4-channel system without additional amplifiers or the 7.1.4-channel set, complemented by a stereo power amplifier. The model is capable of delivering a power of 200 W (6 Ohms) per channel.

Design and build

HDAM amplification modules are installed in the model and reverse current communication is used. The result is a wide frequency range, an impressive slew rate, excellent detail and dynamics. The receiver uses the AK4458 32-bit DAC to convert “numbers” to “analogs,” so Hi-Res-audio playback is available over the local home network and via USB, including DSD 2.8 / 5.6 MHz.

Connectivity

As for switching, the Marantz SR7013 has eight HDMI inputs with support for 4K / 60 Hz, HDCP 2.2, BT.2020 color space and HDR video (HDR10, Dolby Vision and HLG). There are three HDMI outputs, including for an additional zone. One of the HDMI outputs works with an extended eARC return channel that supports object-oriented sound formats. The receiver is equipped with a phono stage for MM cartridges, has an 11.2-channel Pre Out (RCA) and 7.1-channel input.

Setup

To configure / calibrate the speakers, the Audyssey MultEQ XT32 system is used. Other Audyssey technologies are also used: Dynamic EQ to optimize the frequency response over the entire range, Dynamic Volume to smooth out the volume level (relevant when watching ads), LFC (prevents the penetration of bass into adjacent rooms) and Sub EQ HT to optimize the operation of two subwoofers in the system.
