This new Marantz piece looks like a beauty. It may actually encourage me to replace my dinosaur processor.

HDMI 2.0 along with a "hardware upgrade" for HDCP 2.2. They also offer Aura3D audio for a $199 cost. The only thing not promised (so far) is the new DTS surround format. There are some dealers that are very confident that format will be a FW update as well.

My only hesitation at this point is that I have 0 desire to send a unit back to the factory for an upgrade.

Anyone heard of the status of the 8802 since the dock workers strike has been over for almost 2 weeks. When will they be hitting the stores? Anyone has one in their hot hands yet? Curious as to first impressions, I'm on the fence as to getting the 8802 or the 8801 for $1.1K cheaper.

FWIW D&M announced that the new DTS format will be available for this unit via firmware upgrade.

Mine is on the way.

I'm downloading it now.

Hello everyone,

New owner here. I've had it for about a month and have been enjoying it. Upgraded from a Pioneer Elite SC-65 as preamp. I've tested some media and did noTice audible differences between MCACC and Audessey. My 45 days are almost up but I've already decided to keep will be updating my gallery pics in the next months.

5.2 Current Setup to be 5.2.4:

Amp: Emotiva XPA-5 , Emotiva BasXA-700 (Preordered)
Source Player: Oppo BDP-103d
Fronts / Surrounds: Sonus Faber Venere 2.0
Center: Sonus Faber Venere Center
Subs: Dual SVS SB-2000
Top Heights: still deciding. Have a pair of Definitive Technology PM1000 as rear heights right now. May just get another pair for the front and use for Atmos. Anyone have other suggestions?

Well, I'm 5.2.2 right now. K have my rear heights up. Waiting on my front heights to deliver next week. Set speaker configuration to 11.1. Tried TMNT with Auro 2d Surround and loved it. Tried it also with Dolby Surround and didn't have as much impact but still good. Will listen more tomorrow. I'm really happy I upgraded! There IS a difference.

5.2.4 now... and loving it. It's like the Darbee processor... you miss it when it's gone. I now listen to EVERYTHING in immerse audio. Music sounds awesome with Auro3d. Hands down the best one for music. Favorite movie sound experience so far has been DTS:X. (Upmixers are factored into my convictions.) For cable programing it is Auro3d. I feel it gives a little more thump or body to the sound. Got demo disc from Auro and wow! The tractor, helicopter flyover, and Amsterdam demos blew me away! Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol was a new movie. I was back on the edge of my seat.

The Internet radio is awesome. Easy to navigate to and sounds great! Bluetooth works and built-in wifi are big pluses. I terminals are strong and represents the build quality of the pro. I do believe I'll have this for a while.

Current setup: 5.2.4
Oppo BDP-103D
Marantz AV8802A
Emotiva XPA-5 Gen2(Fronts/Surrounds)
Emotiva BasX A500 (Front/Rear Heights):
Fronts/Surrounds: Sonus Faber Venere 2.0 Bookshelf
Center: Sonus Faber Venere Center
Heights: Definitive Technology ProMonitor 1000 Bookshelf
Subs: SVS SB-2000

Months later and I'm still a fanboy. Some things have changed though:

- Internet Radio has no further progress. I rarely, if ever, listen to this anymore.
- I bluetooth my Apple music from my LG V20 phone and really appreciate the audio quality coming from my system.
- Immersive Audio Preferred Codecs:
- For Cable TV Programming: Dolby Surround. The wireless transmitter uses a Dolby surround codec and Dolby Surround sounds much better.
- For Bluray: Whatever the source codec is, with its own upmixer. I have tried bitstream of DTS 5.1 content upmised with Auromatic and it sounds good there as well. That is only a matter of what mood you're in.
- For music: Auromatic is still the best, however, I still listen in 2-ch mode.

Thought I'd share my thoughts on this pro if anyone was still on the fence. Still no major issues with mine. Loving it and should have for another 2 years minimum.

I wonder if it's possible that the 7702MKii will also get a DV upgrade. I think they both were released the same "model year" and if not, when i do get a DV able TV, I can always plug one of the hdmi's from my UHD player directly into the tv. I'd also be just as happy if they could do a DV pass-through with the 7702MKii.

Good move by Marantz. Those kind of actions build loyalty to a brand.

I recently got my 8802a out of storage and hooked it up to my 7.2.4 setup using the 11.1 settings.

Does anyone's click every time it switches audio sources from 7.1 to 11.1?
