High Grade Audio Components; Marantz HDAM and Current Feedback Topology
Featuring exclusive Marantz HDAM (Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module) technology found on our Reference Series components, the AV8805 incorporates multiple HDAM modules, which provide superior low noise, wideband performance in an all- discrete configuration compared to conventional op amp ICs. HDAM technology provides an ultra-fast slew rate for true wideband response and maximum dynamic range to deliver optimum sound quality with today's high-resolution audio formats. In addition to HDAM technology, the AV8805 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 wideband audio sources.
Advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32
Equipped with the flagship Audyssey suite of features, the AV8805 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 eight measurement locations, then generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the best possible sound. Audyssey Dynamic Volume smooths out annoying jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels while still enjoying clear dialogue, music and sound effects, and still provides full- range clarity. Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver a full-range balance, including deep bass, without disturbing close-by neighbors or those in other rooms. Plus, it 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.
The Audyssey MultEQ Editor App
The AV8805 supports the brand-new Audyssey MultEQ Editor app. Go 'under the hood' to view and adjust settings for detailed tuning, customize the sound more precisely to the specific problems in your room and tailor the sound to your personal preferences.
. View the speaker detection results to check correct installation.
. View before and after results of the Audyssey calibration, making it easy to identify room problems.
. Edit the Audyssey target curve for each channel pair to suit your tastes.
. Edit the EQ frequency adjustment range for each channel pair.

External Control Capabilities
The AV8805 has a range of features to provide enhanced control and compatibility with third 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, plus a flasher input and a 12V trigger output. For direct connection to external home automation and control equipment, use the RS-232C serial port. The AV8805 also features Crestron Connected for quick and easy integration with home automation equipment.
Dual Subwoofer Outputs
A single subwoofer demands optimal placement to avoid audible peaks and dips in the low- frequency response at the main listening position. The AV8805 supports two subwoofers: used in different locations, these will even out the low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere in the room.
Multi- Source, Multi-Room
Whatever your family's entertainment needs, the AV8805 delivers: you can enjoy 7.1-channel surround sound in the main room and play stereo sound from another source in a different part of the house at the same time. 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.
Smart TV Connectivity
Via the HDMI CEC (consumer electronics control) functionality on some Smart TVs, it's possible to control the AV8805 with the TV's remote handset. With the receiver's "HDMI control" set to ON, set "Smart Menu" receiver control functions. The TV's Smart Menu home screen will provide direct access to source and surround mode selections, the main setup menu and Smart Select configuration presets.
Simple Smart Select Functions
The AV8805 has four Smart Select buttons on the front panel and the remote control: each stores a preferred setup - input, volume and Audyssey configuration - for a source. Push one button and the AV8805 can be perfectly configured for anything, from Blu- ray to your favorite Internet radio station.
Easy To Setup, Easy To Use
For easy installation, the AV8805's horizontal row of premium loudspeaker terminals is color coded, with a set of matching cable-labels supplied to ensure correct hook-up. The AVR's clear graphical on-screen display has an exclusive Setup Assistant, combining with the Quick Start guide to provide guidance and optimize critical settings for the best possible sound quality, whatever your configuration.
