Product Description

The Marantz SR-8012 offers the most up-to-date audio and video technology currently available and is Made in Japan.  As one of the world's leading manufacturers of state-of-the-art home entertainment solutions, this flagship model is jam-packed full of the best features.


Experience the peak of Marantz AV expertise in the new flagship SR8012 – the first-ever 11.2-channel Marantz receiver that is about to set new standards. Surround yourself in thrilling immersive surround sound with Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro 3D, all three codecs able to drive overhead speakers for a true 3D sound experience. The receiver's 11 high-quality amplifier stages enhance audio quality via carefully selected high grade audio components including Marantz Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Modules, or HDAMs, used in Current Feedback topology. These pass the signal to the power stages, each providing 140 Watts RMS* of pure Marantz power and finesse to drive a full 7.1.4-channel home cinema setup without the need for additional external amplifiers. And the SR8012 uses advanced Marantz sound-tuning throughout, drawing in features from the company's Reference two-channel models, including a copper chassis and an oversized, shielded toroidal tranformer built to Marantz specification, plus high-current main power supply capacitors also made to the Marantz engineers' exacting standards.

With built-in HEOS technology, the SR8012 becomes a part of a HEOS wireless multi-room music network, enabling you to enjoy your favourite music anywhere around your home: explore, browse, and play music from your music library, online streaming music services, or thousands of internet radio stations, using the free HEOS app.

The Ultimate In Marantz Build And Sound Quality

With unparalleled Marantz performance, the new top-of-the-line SR8012 AV receiver is made for those wanting the ultimate audio and video experience. Its symmetrical monolithic amplifier design gives it 11 identical amplifier channels, each delivering 140 Watts per channel*, for seamless surround sound integration. The design also brings to the Marantz AV receiver line a large toroidal transformer, mounted centrally for mechanical balance, a copper plated chassis, selected audio components throughout and high-grade speaker terminals. The SR8012 opens a new chapter in the illustrious history of Marantz AV receivers.

High Grade Audio Components: Featuring exclusive Marantz HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology found on our Reference Series components, the SR8012 incorporates multiple HDAM modules which provide superior low noise wide-band performance in an all-discrete configuration, compared to conventional op amp ICs. HDAM technology provides an ultra fast slew rate for true wide-band response and maximum dynamic range to deliver optimum sound quality with today’s high resolution audio formats. In addition to HDAM technology, the SR8012 also features Current Feedback instead of the typical voltage feedback configuration. A Marantz innovation introduced on our very first audiophile amplifiers more than 60 years ago, Current Feedback technology provides a wide closed-loop bandwidth and very high slew rate, delivering superior fidelity with wide-band audio sources.

Dolby Atmos: Feel every dimension in Dolby Atmos. Dolby Atmos transports you into the story with moving audio that flows all around you with breathtaking realism. Enjoy a 5.1 or even 7.1 surround sound speaker system and 4 additional overhead speakers or 4 Dolby Atmos elevation speakers without the need for external amplification, for the ultimate home theatre experience - including Dolby Surround upmixer for legacy content.

DTS:X: Experience immersive audio places sound where it would occur naturally in space, creating a lifelike, multi-dimensional audio experience in the home. The improved immersion and heightened realism draw you into the world of your favourite movies. The included spatial remapping engine, DTS Neural:X, gives your movie, game and music collections a new lease on life! DTS:X brings the theatre home.

Auro 3D: Putting you in a cocoon of life-like sound. Auro-3D elevates the home theatre experience to amazing new levels by delivering the excitement of three-dimensional sound for music, games, broadcast, and films while enhancing your existing audio-visual collection, thanks to Auromatic up-mixing engine.

Other Outstanding Features

Built-in Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and AirPlay Capability: Featuring Bluetooth & Wi-Fi wireless streaming connectivity, the SR8012 is equipped with an advanced dual antenna transceiver system, for robust streaming even in congested urban environments.

This ensures consistent high fidelity and precise channel matching across all channels for the ultimate listening experience.

Advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32: Equipped with the flagship Audyssey suite of features, the SR8012 features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction using advanced DSP algorithms. With the supplied measurement microphone, it analyzes the output of each speaker (including the subwoofers) at up to 8 measurement locations, then generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the bets possible sound. Audyssey Dynamic Volume smoothes out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels while still enjoying clear dialogue, music and sound effects, while Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides full-range clarity at any listening level. Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver a full-range balance, including deep bass, but without disturbing close-by neighbours or those in other rooms, and features a multi-step adjustment. Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual DSP tailoring of each subwoofer in a dual subwoofer setup, allowing deeper bass with improved definition when compared to a single subwoofer configuration.

External Control Capabilities: The SR8012 has a range of features to provide enhanced control and compatibility with 3rd party and custom integration solutions, including IP control, either via wired LAN connection or Wi-Fi. For compatibility with other components there's a remote control input and output on the rear panel, along with a flasher input and a 12V trigger output, while for direct connection to external home automation and control equipment, there's an RS-232C serial port. The SR8012 also features Crestron Connected for quick and easy integration with home automation equipment.

Multi-Room Audio And Built-In Heos Technology

Whatever your family's entertainment needs, the SR8012 delivers: you can enjoy 7.1-channel surround sound in the main room, and at the same time play stereo sound from another source in a different part of the house. Simply connect a pair of stereo speakers to the multi-room amplified outputs, or hook up a separate stereo amp and speakers to the Zone 2 pre-outs.
