Marantz Cinema 30 11.4 ch Receiver

Making sound the Marantz way is a seamless fusion of art and science, practiced by Sound Masters in the Marantz engineering labs of Shirakawa, Japan. 

Their latest creation, CINEMA 30, is engineered with revolutionary proprietary technologies and is the epitomy of uncompromised quality. Meticulously tuned, this AV receiver delivers performance with a rich, warm, and nuanced sound quality. 

Discrete HDAM SA-2, new dual-DAC digital to analog conversion, monolithic symmetrical amplifier, and countless other technologies elevate CINEMA 30 to Marantz’ highest performance level ever.

Marantz design is timelessly elegant – an expression of a philosophy of balance and symmetry, meticulous attention to detail, and thoughtful selection of component materials.

While substantial in stature, CINEMA 30 is elegantly constructed using steel and aluminum knobs and casework. The subtle texture molded into the front panel is illuminated by dimmable lights on either side of the control surface.

Marantz provides a rich assortment of connections and configuration options to make CINEMA 30 the cornerstone piece of your home theatre system.

Optimize your loudspeakers with the included Audyssey MultEQ XT32, making even challenging acoustic spaces ideal listening environments. And, for even more professional level calibration, upgrade to Dirac Live.

Ease of Setup and Use
While CINEMA 30 may be complex within, everyday use and setup need not be complicated. An included quick-start guide and on-screen setup procedure make configuration easy.

The metal backlit remote provides access to the most often used features, while advanced HDMI connectivity allows use of a TV remote for power and volume.

CINEMA 30 sits at the center of your home entertainment universe.

7 HDMI inputs are readily available, all 8K compatible, meaning any source can be upscaled to striking 8K resolution.

A perfect mix of traditional analog and digital inputs, plus turntable compatibility, make CINEMA 30 a perfect partner for however you choose to listen.

With its extensive connectivity and highly capable technological underpinning, you can add new components to expand your system for many years to come. Plus, 13.4 channel preamp outputs provide opportunities to expand your loudspeaker layout with outboard amplification.

No Compromise Engineering
Hi-Fi performance technologies like HDAM SA-2, monolithic symmetrical amplifiers, toroidal transformer-based power supplies, and more elevate CINEMA 30 to performance levels seldom found in an AVR.

Sound Master Tuned & Calibrated for You
Premium and custom ingredients are chosen by the Marantz Sound Masters to capture The Most Musical Sound. Powerful calibration and tuning tools are included, enabling you to get the best performance from your system.

Advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32
Equipped with the full Audyssey suite of advanced DSP algorithms, the CINEMA 30 features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction. With the supplied measurement microphone, MultEQ XT32 analyzes each speaker’s output (including the subwoofers) at up to eight measurement locations and generates precision digital filters that optimize each channel for the correct frequency and time domain response. Audyssey Dynamic Volume smooths out disruptive jumps in volume (such as TV commercials), letting you listen at lower levels while still enjoying clear dialogue, music and sound. Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides full-range clarity at any listening level, and Audyssey Low Frequency Containment uses advanced psychoacoustic algorithms to deliver a full-range balance, including deep bass, without disturbing neighbours or people in other rooms of your home. Audyssey Sub EQ HT provides individual DSP tailoring of each subwoofer in a dual subwoofer setup for deeper bass with improved definition. Plus, the Audyssey MultEQ Editor app lets you view and adjust settings for detailed tuning and customize the sound more precisely to your room and tastes, and is available for purchase in iOS App and Google Play stores.

Dirac Live Optional Upgradability
The interaction between your sound system and the physical layout of your room has a huge impact on sound quality. Dirac Live® Room Correction applies state-of-the- art, patented algorithms to analyze and digitally reduce room impact and enhance speaker performance. Dirac Live delivers a larger sweet spot, accurate staging, clarity, voice intelligibility, and a deeper, tighter bass not otherwise possible. Fully tunable to your preference. Select Marantz AV receivers and AV preamplifiers support Dirac Live Upgradability. You can purchase a Dirac Live license key to unlock the functionality. Visit for more information about Dirac Live.

IR (infrared) remote control input and output are included on the rear panel for remote control compatibility with other components in your home theater system.

Pre-Amplifier Mode
With Pre-Amplifier Mode, your receiver works as a perfect 13.4 channel AV preamplifier with the latest HDMI connectivity. Pre-Amplifier Mode provides a cleaner signal path and more tolerance in clipping level by disconnecting internal amplifiers. The receiver features 13.4 channel preouts. You can also disconnect only selected speaker channels so that you can use receiver's built-in amplification to drive non-critical channels, yet getting cleaner signal path for the channels driven by external amplification such as Front L+R. Enjoy the best of the both worlds.

Phono Input for Turntables
With the built-in phono EQ, you can connect your turntable directly to the AV receiver's MM phono inputs and play vinyl records. Enjoy your vintage collection with exceptional quality and sound.

4 Independent Subwoofer Outputs
Immerse yourself in evenly distributed, accurate bass. Featuring up to four subwoofer outputs to smooth out low frequencies and provide better dispersion. No audible peaks or dips — just powerful, room-filling bass.

Two Subwoofer Modes
Giving you even more freedom to tweak your subwoofer settings to your preference when you are connecting more than 2 subwoofers. Select "Standard" if you want evenly distributed bass performance equally throughout the room. Audyssey sub EQ HT will be engaged to provide a global filter to all subwoofers and will give you broader sweet spot in the room. Select "Directional" if you want more directional bass performance seamlessly integrated into each speaker channel closest to each subwoofer. Bass feels different depending on where you sit in the room.

MPEG-H is a 3D immersive audio coding standard developed by the ISO/IEC Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and Fraunhofer IIS for broadcasting content, currently available in Korea, China and Brazil. MPEG-H decoding is supported globally for select Marantz AV receivers and AV preamplifiers.

Immerse yourself in sound all around you. As real as if you are there at a live concert or with the artist recording in a studio. With 360 Reality Audio, music has never been so immersive and so real. Select Marantz AV receivers and AV preamplifiers are capable of 360 Reality Audio playback by connecting a Google Chromecast device to the AV receiver via HDMI. Currently, casting of 360 Reality Audio content from music streaming services are not yet available; stay tuned for further updates.
Back-lit Remote
The receiver comes with a backlit remote to help you control the receiver in a dark theater setting so that the entire experience will not be stopped or disturbed by just controlling the receiver.
