There is not much to go on with these upcoming Pre/Pros, most of the details were leaked from a Chinese Dealer Presentation apparently but the range of Denon and Marantz Receivers and Pre/Pros should be announced soon apparently. I am only interested in the Pre/Pros myself so will start with the more solid details of the Marantz 8805 13.2 channel preamplifier 13.2 Channel decoding processing and pre-output Dolby Atmos (7.1.6 or 9.1.4), DTS: X, Auro 3D built-in New 2 ADI Griffin Lite DSP Equipped with 32bit AKM4490 DAC decoder chip 7 + 1 input / 3 output HDMI (3D / eARC) HDCP2.2-HDMI2.0a Support Audyssey MultEQ XT32 sound field calibration, Audyssey App support WiFi, BT, AirPlay, RS232 and IP control Internet radio, Phono Marantz HDAM current feedback circuit Copper chassis, toroidal transformer Auro-3D (13.1) DTS Virtual: X (Upgraded) Built-in wireless Multi Room HEOS eARC, Dolby Vision, HLG Support Audyssey Remote App (paid download) Other leaked details are about the Denon AVC-X8500H Receiver. As there is also a Processer coming from Denon I expect the spec to be fairly similar to that shown on the slide below and the video. The big difference seems to be the HDMI 2.1 upgrade, so my only hope is that the Marantz will also get this with the spec is ratified sometime in 2018. Prices I think are rumoured in the £3-5k bracket for the processors. Q1 2018 could be a nice time for an upgrade methinks, especially if the Emotiva RMC-1 actually makes an appearance too AVC-X8500H: Denon introduces the first home...Watch this video on YouTube FYI, rear panel is of the Marantz, front is the Denon Receiver.
