Robert, any idea if Marantz plans on launching an 8806 with the new HDMI features or at least offer a board upgrade for the 8805?

I have been wanting to upgrade my non HDMI SSP for a long time but have been reluctant to pull the trigger on an uber expensive Trinnov or Storm Audio unit which had me looking at Emotiva as a more affordable option but Marantz is certainly another alternative.

Since I do a lot of gaming I have been holding off until SSP companies have at least acknowledged the prospect of HDMI 2.1 board upgrades and they now seem to be thinking in that direction which is good. It sucks that the Marantz doesn't have more 8k60/4k120 inputs as just the one means only a single Xbox Series X, PS5 or Nvidia 3000 series PC can be connected which really given it's only the one input it makes more sense to go straight to the tv and use eARC to get the high res audio back to the SSP.

Marantz has not told me about a successor to the AV8805 and although it's only an educated guess I do expect we'll see an HHDMI 2.1 board upgrade for the AV8805.

For users with three 60Hz 8K/120Hz 4K capable gaming devices I'd suggest connecting the PS5 and NVIDA 3000 series PC directly to the 8K display and connecting the Xbox Series X to the Marantz processor.

Next week I'll be receiving Marantz's first allocation of AV7706 and we're also getting Trinnov's Altitude16. The Trinnov Altitude16 is going in our 15.2 channel store demo theater and Marantz's AV7706 will be in my personal 11.4 channel theater in our home. We'll also be among the first USA dealers receiving Marantz's AV7706 Processors for display/demo and stock.

Marantz just confirmed our allocation of the new AV7706 11.2 Channel Pre-pro Processor will be delivered to my store Friday, October 23rd.

We'll immediately put one on display/demo in our showroom!

What kind of terminals are those for the speakers? I've never seen them before.

Just started looking for an 11.2 upgrade for next year, and this shows up. Coincidence? I think not....

@slimdude, no speaker terminals on the AV7706 as it's a preamplifier/processor. You connect the RCA or balanced XLR outputs to your amplifier.
