Newly announced for 2014 is the Marantz SR5009 av receiver. The SR5009 is loaded with features. Whether you’re looking for power, wireless connectivity or 4K video support, Marantz’s new AV receiver has you covered.


The Marantz SR5009 boasts 7 channels of power rated at about 180 watts each. However, for even more oomph the 5009 also includes 7.2 channel pre-amp outputs if you want to connect an external amp. It also offers dual zone audio support, so you can listen to 5.1 channel sound in one room and stereo sound in another. As expected, the SR5009 supports the major HD audio formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio among others.


For connectivity, the 5009 possesses 8 HDMI inputs including 1 in the front as well as 2 outputs. All of these inputs are HDMI 2.0 compliant which means they’re 3D and 4K Ultra HD video ready. With 4K video on the cusp of becoming mainstream, it’s important for an av receiver to be able to handle the emerging technology. The SR5009 not only supports 4K pass through, but it also upscales 1080p video to 4K. Additionally, the 5009 has 12V triggers and RS232 ports for custom controller installations.


Thanks to the portability of digital music we’ve all become accustomed to taking our music everywhere. The Marantz SR5009 plays back not only MP3s but it also supports several HD audio formats including AAC, WMA, FLAC, WAV, and ALAC up to 192kHz/24bit resolution, as well as DSD and AIFF files.


Let’s be honest, wired connections are going out of style. To facilitate our changing tastes, the 5009 includes both Bluetooth and WiFi. It also has a substantial set of music streaming choices via Pandora, Spotify or Apple AirPlay.


From the vast list of features we’ve just outlined, you may be eager to run out and purchase this receiver now. However, the Marantz SR5009 isn’t  expected to hit store shelves until this August at the suggested MSRP of $899. So you may have to wait just a little longer.
