very complicated design, not for entry-level users

The Marantz SR5005 is an AV receiver built for flexible signal conversion. This is a replacement model for the original Marants SR5004, which had similar features without HDMI support. It is similar to the Marantz SR6005 and SR7005, but lacks extra zone outputs and has a more limited number of video conversion options. The 7 main channels are discretely powered at 100 watts using marantz quality processes, and the Audyssey Dynamic EQ automatically adjusts for a variety of inputs. Support for the HDMI V1.4a standard enables high definition audio and video in full 3D. Video scaling is handled through an Anchor Bay 10-bit process that will allow signals from Composite, Component or HDMI to be scaled up to the full 1080p high definition standard and output through an HDMI port. The M-DAX 2 system is used for lower quality audio signals to expand them into the high definition range, filling out areas of the sound that mayhave been missing. High definition standards like Dolby TrueHD, Digital Plus, and dts-HD Master Audio are all supported, as well as many others. A front USB port allows for quick connection of portable media and iPods, and Bluetooth support is also available with an optional accessory. This receiver is Sirius radio ready.
