8K Atmos AV Receiver - Taking your home entertainment to the next level with IMAX Enhanced, the Marantz SR8015 will make you want to watch your favourite movies again.
OUR VERDICT - What's the difference between the Marantz AV Receiver model's ? Even from the base model, the SR5015, your experience will be nothing short of extraordinary. As you step up the range the number of amplifier channels increases, dynamic range is improved and the overall sound becomes even more fine tuned and refined. Whichever model you choose your home cinema will be grateful.
Due to the huge success of the almighty SR8012 there has been much speculation and hype as to whether the new flagship Marantz SR8015 will be much of an improvement, after all 'When it isn't broke, don't try to fix it'. That phrase is not in the Marantz ethos and its a good job too as the all new SR 8015 is something quite spectacular with all the features of its siblings and more. What's even more fascinating is that they have managed to do all this and keep it in such an attractive box, well as pretty as an AV Receiver can be anyway.
So what can you expect ? Quite a lot would be the answer to that but we believe that one of the main features that will grab your attention is the 'Alexa' feature, the duties of an AV Receiver would normally include enhancing your audio visual experience but Marantz have been working extremely hard to make your experience easier and smarter. The Alexa feature means that there will be no more scrambling for the remote to adjust the volume or change the input so you can play your favourite game on your console, just let your voice be the remote....simple. Marantz have also included their proprietary Heos wireless multiroom. Now your living room cinema can be part of your whole house audio system thanks to Heos, this also means that if you have other Heos devices, such as the Superb Denon Home 150, around your home you can enable TV sound grouping and listen to the football game around the house. The SR8015 also features Dolby Atmos, 11 channels of power, 4K UHD HDMI's, Bluetooth, WIFI, an update for the IMAX Enhanced feature and so much more. One of the latest features to be added to modern AV Receivers is eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) eARC supports the most advanced audio formats such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X via single HDMI connection between AVRs and compatible TVs. In short the Marantz SR 8015 has everything you could ever want combined with legendary Marantz sound, we believe that this is something special for the discerning home cinema fan - THOROUGHLY RECOMMENDED

Equipped with the flagship Audyssey suite of features, the SR8015 features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction using advanced DSP algorithms. With the supplied measurement microphone, it analyses the output of each speaker (including the subwoofers) at up to 8 measurement locations, then generates precision digital filters that optimise 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.
