Advanced 13.2 channel pre-amplifier

The Marantz AV8805A processor/pre-amplifier was built for the most advanced home theatre enthusiast. With 13.2 channel processing, 15.2 channel XLR and RCA outputs, and flexible amplifier stages, enjoy your movies with a system you deserve.

Masterfully engineered

The AV8805A is made for home cinema enthusiasts who want everything, versatility, flexibility, and musicality. Extensively tuned by world-renowned sound acousticians at the most state-of-the-art facilities, we leverage decades of experience in Hi-Fi to drive exceptional, audiophile-quality surround sound for all your entertainment.

The Marantz AV8805A offers an outstanding construction for the best, unaltered music and movie playback. The highly rigid base chassis – the foundation for all circuit boards carrying the sensitive audio signal – leaves no chance for microphonic effects through unwanted vibration.

The oversized toroidal transformer feeding the big main capacitors is set on an extra 5mm aluminum pedestal for extra stability. All electronics are supported by copper plating on the main chassis which guarantees the best ground connection at any point and improves Signal to Noise behavior significantly. In total, 15 single-board HDAM modules are used to achieve the best channel separation for reference-setting audio performance. Finally, everything is exceptionally well covered by a heavy top lid constructed out of three pieces.

Advanced 8K HDMI connectivity with eARC support

Enjoy exquisite video performance thanks to the latest HDMI technologies. The Marantz AV8805A includes 8 HDMI inputs and 3 outputs for all your favourite sources. One dedicated 8K input supports 8K/60Hz or 4K/120Hz pass-through capability, while Dolby Vision, HLG, HDR10+, 21:9 video, 3D, BT.2020 pass-through and HDCP 2.3 copy protection standard is supported on all HDMI inputs.

Showcasing all the latest HDMI technology and specifications, the AV8805A lets you take your home entertainment to the next level with HDR10+, Dynamic HDR, ALLM, VRR, QMS, and QFT support. The video processor can also upscale your native video source up to 8K quality. In addition, the AV8805A features HDMI eARC which supports 3D audio formats like Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X® in masterful quality from your TV source. For your convenience, your HDMI inputs automatically rename themselves with information provided by the source when available.

Marantz HDAM and Current Feedback topology

The AV8805A features exclusive Marantz Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module (HDAM) technology that provide ultra-fast slew rate, true wideband performance, and maximum dynamic range for optimum sound quality.
