The Marantz SR5007 is the company's entry-level SR receiver with many of the features found in the two higher-end models but with a lower power output (100W per channel) and a simpler design.
The receiver is part of range that also includes the 7.2-channel SR6007 ($1,199.99) and the 7.2-channel SR7007 ($1,799.99) and will be available around July.
Marantz says its new receivers are easier to use than ever thanks to a new setup routine, and they provide more connectivity.
The front panel of the SR5007 features the iconic porthole look that the company reinstated last year and includes both HDMI and USB ports (with FLAC support). A total of six HDMI inputs are standard with support for 4K video.
All of the new models feature Marantz's onscreen Setup Assistant, which is a step-by-step guide that includes language selection, speaker connection and calibration instructions, plus Audyssey Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ settings, source setup, and more.
Wireless features include AirPlay support across the range for streaming from an iOS device and iTunes, as well as streaming from Internet radio, Pandora, and SiriusXM.
