Marantz HDAM-SA2
To preserve the detail, nuance, and essence of the music you love, Marantz developed Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAM) which are superior in their speed and response to off-the-shelf modules found in other products. HDAM design is unique and different to each Marantz product carefully designed by Marantz engineers and sound masters. CINEMA 40 leverages this unique Marantz innovation — in its superior Discrete version, beloved in the SR8015 — to ensure whatever you’re listening to is always the most musical.

All Zone TV Audio
Share the main zone TV audio to all your zones without losing fully discrete multi- channel playback in the main zone. Select “Source” for the second zone from the Marantz AVR Remote app so that main zone audio will not switch to stereo PCM.

Smart TV Connectivity
Marantz CINEMA Series can be controlled with your Smart TV remote via the HDMI CEC functionality associated with your TV. Simply set “HDMI Control” to ON in your receiver, then set “Smart Menu” to ON and begin controlling the Marantz with your TV remote. The Smart Menu home screen offers quick access to source and surround mode selections, the AVR's setup menu and four Smart Selects.

Marantz AVR Remote App
The Marantz AVR Remote app for iOS and Android provides complete control over the latest Marantz network AV receivers and pre-amps. Use it to power on/off, adjust volume, input, and settings, or switch instantly to the HEOS® Built-in app.

Convenient Smart Select Functions
The included remote has four Smart Select function buttons so you can store your preferred or frequently used settings and call them up easily on the fly — including input source, volume level, sound mode, and Audyssey configuration. With the push of a button, the Marantz instantly configures the receiver to your desired setting at any time.

Easy Setup Experience

Once you connect your TV to CINEMA 60 via HDMI, the Marantz Setup Assistant appears on your TV screen and guides you through setup. The Setup Assistant helps you adjust crucial settings for the best possible sound quality, whatever your configuration.

Advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32
Equipped with the full Audyssey suite of advanced DSP algorithms, the CINEMA 40 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.

External Control Capabilities
Features IP control capabilities for easy customization and compatibility with third-party integration solutions. The Marantz CINEMA Series offers IP
control capability for major third-party control devices, as well as Control4 SDPP (Simple Device Detection Protocol) certification for seamless integration with Control4 home automation equipment. 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 11.4 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 11.4 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.

360 Reality Audio
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.
