Marantz Announces the New SR6011 7.2.4 Channel AV Receiver


Marantz has announced a new addition to its 2016 lineup of AV receivers, the SR6011. Featuring 11.2 channel processing with nine built-in amps, the SR6011 represents a reasonably affordable entry into the arena of 7.2.4 Dolby Atmos and DTS-X functionality.

Coming on the heels of the recently announced SR5011, Marantz has packed quite a bit of punch into its new SR6011. Nine internal power amplifiers allow owners to run 5.2 and 7.2 multichannel and 5.2.4 and 7.2.2 immersive sound speaker configurations. The addition of an external amp can unlock operation of two additional presence channels for 7.2.4 functionality. If immersive sound isnít desired, owners can re-assign the SR6011ís amps to drive Zone 2 speakers in a different room. Of course, like other Marantz AVRs, the SR6011 ships with onboard Audyssey room correction software (this particular model features MultEQ XT32).

Marantz says the SR6011ís amplifier section contains discrete high current output devices on all nine channels, with all amp channels configured identically. Each channel is rated at 110 Watts (8 ohms, 0.08%, 20 Hz- 20kHz) and has the ability to drive 4 ohm speakers. Prior to reaching the amp section, audio signals are given a white glove treatment by Marantzís proprietary Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module in Current Feedback topology.




Aside from audio, the SR6011 features a future-ready video section that can handle the most stringent modern 4K requirements. All eight of the SR6011ís HDMI 2.0a ports can deliver 4K/60Hz video, 4:4:4 color sub-sampling, High Dynamic Range, 21:9 video, 3D, DCI color space pass through, and HDCP 2.2 support. This means the SR6011 can play nicely with every currently available 4K source (including 4K UHD Blu-ray, set-top boxes, and streaming). In addition, it can upscale non-4K sources.

The SR6011 offers user convenient Bluetooth and wireless streaming, giving owners access to network attached storage devices, Internet radio, Apple AirPlay, Pandora, SiriusXM, and Spotify Connect. It can also deliver Hi-Res audio, with support for DSD (2.8/5.6 MHz), FLAC, ALAC, AIFF, and WAV audio files.

Marantz says the SR6011 is expected to ship this coming September for $1,399.00

Wow, this seems like quite a good deal. This might be the least expensive unit yet that will allow a full Atmos 7.1.4 system, and it has the full Audyssey suite of technologies. Nice.

Now if we could just get 9.1.4 units . . .

Yup... it's sliding right under Pioneer's SC-95 ($1600). This is a big one... it won't be long before we see a 7.1.4 receiver hit that all-important $1K mark. Exciting times!

Re: Marantz Announces the New SR6011 7.2.4 Channel AV Receiver

This might be another to look at for me for the under $1500 receiver/pre-pro. Also considering the Denon X3300 (under $1000) and the Denon X4200 ($900 right now with an online coupon code). I like the idea of the 2016 models that will have the Audyssey app. I probably will "never" need anything beyond standard 5 channel, but want many of the rest of the goodies that come with these - Audyssey MultEQ XT32, dual sub outputs, pre-outs for my 5 channel amp, and 4K compatibility.

I like the way things are going as I'll be in the market for an upgrade pretty soon.

I can't discover if it has DSX for Wides? My guess is it doesn't and I don't want to go to the 7010 to get it.

Denon's X4200 for $100 more, I am sure does which would fill my needs more.

I would have like to use a Marantz this time

I'm pretty sure the Denon 4200 cannot do 7.1.4. You'd be limited to 5.1.4 or 7.1.2 with that unit, and I think you'd need an outboard two channel amp for channels eight and nine. But maybe that's what you need.

The back of the X4200 shows connectors for Front Wides. To me that means DSX, correct?

I am not fortunate enough to have towers. I have all in-ceiling which means no 3D sound, Atmos, etc.

The best that I can do is run a 6.2 system with Wides,
