Equipped with our advanced multi-DSP audio processor, the AV8801 features a broad range of surround sound decoding modes, including support for high resolution audio formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio. For the ultimate surround sound experience, the AV8801 also features expanded multi-channel decoding, including Audyssey DSX and DTS Neo:X, giving you the ability to add additional front height and width channels for a truly expansive and immersive surround sound experience. The AV8801 further enhances audio quality by delicately handling all signals via the Marantz-own HDAMs in Current Feedback topology before being passed to the XLR outputs and separate power amp. Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room measurement and correction provides easy setup, via the included microphone, and custom generates high resolution digital filters for each speaker and subwoofer, providing smooth tailored acoustic response with correction in both frequency and time domains (conventional equalization only provides frequency tailoring). The AV8801 is also equipped with Audyssey's LFC (low frequency containment) option, which custom tailors deep bass response to minimize deep bass leakage into adjacent rooms or apartments, while still providing a satisfying wide range listening experience.
