Simplicity and elegance characterize the SR7005. First seen on Marantz’s Model 9 amplifier, the iconic porthole display, complete with the Marantz “Star” symbol, provides “at a glance” status checks on input selection and gain setting. The drop-down door hides a vacuum fluorescent display, secondary controls, and connectors from sight until you need them.
Fits almost anywhere
Barely 16” deep from front panel controls to speaker terminals, the SR7005 fits where other receivers can’t – on a shelf or in a custom cabinet.
With audio circuitry that includes our proprietary HDAM (Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Module) circuits, Current Feedback topology, and seven fully-discrete, 125 watt amplifiers, the SR7005 provides the dynamic music and soundtrack reproduction you demand.
Vinyl aficionados rejoice! Enjoy Marantz-quality sound from your entire record collection, thanks to the current-feedback MM phono input.
HDAMs combine the short signal path advantages of ICs (integrated circuit) and opamps (operational amplifier) with the superior sound quality of separate circuit components. An HDAM’s size is important, particularly in an A/V receiver where space is very limited. Because HDAMs are discrete designs, Marantz engineers are free to choose the parts best able to preserve the sonic details of your favorite sources.
Current feedback circuits usually exhibit faster rise and fall times and higher slew rates than their voltage feedback cousins. (Think of rise and fall times as an automobile’s acceleration and braking capabilities respectively. Slew rate is analogous to a car’s cornering ability.)
As a consequence, current feedback designs track rapid sonic changes more accurately and thus sound more natural.
Each of the SR7005’s seven amplifiers is built with the finest discrete components, not off-the-shelf “Power Pack” ICs. As a result, each amplifier delivers 125 continuous watts over the entire audio bandwidth for visceral bass and natural, unforced mid and high frequencies.
M-DAX – Makes you iPod and MP3’s Sound Better
Marantz’s M-DAX 2, an updated and refined version of the original Marantz Dynamic Audio eXpander, calculates just the amount of high frequency information typical file compression formats remove – and then restores it so you enjoy full fidelity when playingc back MP3 or WMA music files.
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) has become the de facto standard for connecting components in today’s best home entertainment systems. The SR7005 fully supports the latest 1.4a version with six inputs (one on the front panel) and two outputs. You’ll enjoy the convenience of single-cable connections, the latest 3D technology, an Audio Return Channel, and Standby Pass-Through. In addition, HDMI 1.4a supports a host of other performance enhancements.
The SR7005 makes your home entertainment world far, far larger than you imagined. In addition to conventional sources such as Blu-ray players and set-top cable/satellite boxes, the SR7005 A/V receiver gives you easy ways to listen to the music you’ve already stored on an iPhone or other portable music player, show your photos on the big screen, stream audio from a wide variety of sources, and enjoy music from your Bluetooth-enabled devices wirelessly with the optional RX101 module.
The SR7005’s Ethernet connection is DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) 1.5 and Windows 7 compliant. This means it’s easier for you access and enjoy digital music on your PC.
The SR7005 connects to your home network, interfacing with other connected components while putting you in touch with virtually everything on the web. You can utilize third-party I/P control systems, perform remote maintenance, and get firmware updates to make your system work better!

Bluetooth Wireless Audio (with optional RX101)
Enjoy the world of wireless audio the SR7005. Just plug the optional RX101 Bluetooth module into the SR7005’s rear panel M-XPort and you can enjoy traditional Marantz sound quality from your favorite Bluetooth-capable sources such as iPod, iPad and smart-phones.
Surround Sound Processing
The SR7005 handles all of today’s most advanced surround sound formats. You’ll find a full roster of Dolby technologies such as TrueHD, Digital Plus, Pro Logic IIz, IIx, II, Virtual Speaker, and Dolby Headphone. From dts, we’ve included HD Master Audio, High Resolution Audio, ES Discete6.1, Matrix6.1, Neo:6, 96/24, Express, and Neural Surround.
In addition to these surround formats, you’ll also find Audyssey’s MultEQ XT Auto Calibration, MultEQ Pro for custom installations, Audyssey DSX, Dynamic Volume, and Dynamic EQ.
In short, the SR7005 lets you build the perfect sonic environment so you can enjoy your favorite sources./P>
Anchor Bay 10-bit Video Processor/Scaler
The ABT2015 10-bit processor, Anchor Bay’s fourth-generation video engine, provides exceptional performance including transcoding, deinterlacing, and scaling to give you the flexibility and convenience once restricted to video professionals.
Thanks to this processing power, you can now connect all your video sources, even legacy formats such as videotapes, and display their outputs via HDMI on your high definition TV.
New color GUI/On-Screen Display
Easy selection. Easy customization. Easy operation. Those are the benefits of the SR7005’s new color GUI (Graphical User Interface)/On-Screen Display. Simplified yet comprehensive menu screens, liberal use of color, and consistent navigation commands make it easy to choose the performance parameters you want and integrate the SR7005 with the rest of your system.
Dual-line high density dot matrix information display
In addition to the main information display centered on the front panel, there’s a second and even more comprehensive source of information behind the panel’s drop-down door. This display shows menu choices for custom setup and other data to help you get the most out of your new A/V receiver. The main benefit? Convenience. There’s no need to turn on your TV to set up or change settings. Do it all from the front panel!
Custom Setup Options
The SR7005 offers a plethora of setup options. You can rename inputs to match your system components, even skip unused inputs for faster access to the ones you do want to watch. You can set volume levels for initial turn-on, establish volume limits, and adjust muting to your preference. For multi-zone operation, you can select different audio sources for Zones 2 and 3, even add a different composite or component video source for Zone 2. There are configurable 7.1 preamp outputs as well as a second subwoofer output particularly useful in large rooms. Input Rename, Skip, Level control
In addition to over-the-air FM an AM broadcasts, the SR7005’s internet capabilities will keep you audio-surfing for hours! To help you keep track of all the stations you’ll discover, you’ll find a total of 56 tuner presets (eight stations in each of seven groups). So you can memorize your favorite broadcasts, even those from the Internet, for easy and repeatable access.
Don’t forget the SR7005’s HD Radio capability either. Enjoy FM that sounds (almost) as good as CD and AM that often outperforms conventional FM.
Ready for satellite radio? So is the SR7005. Simply add a Sirius home docking station (and a subscription) to get access to a wide variety of exclusive programming. Remember that the SR7005’s presets work for satellite stations also so it’s easy to tune in your favorite shows.
The SR7005 provides 11 pairs of high quality four-way binding post speaker connectors. This lets you connect speakers for a full 7.1 system in your main room, add height and/or wide speakers to that system and still have connections left over for speakers in different zones! So when you choose different surround modes, or opt for stereo throughout your home, or a combination of the two, you don’t have to disconnect or reconnect any speakers! Just let the SR7005’s microprocessor route the appropriate signals to the proper speakers and enjoy the result.
This connector means your SR7005 is ready for the most advanced remote control systems, even “whole house” approaches that integrate heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, security, and communications, with your home entertainment needs.
Other Custom-Install Features
