  • Marantx SR5013 7.2 Channel Atmos Receiver (last one new boxed)

    So this is in the sweet spot of value vs performance. Other products are cheaper and sound just awful when you actually play something through them. Then there are many that are much more expensive that have facilities that you will never use and amplifier designs that although claiming more power simply don't subjectively perform as well as this does.

    With a current go price of $1500 the SR5013 ticks a lot of boxes with classic Marantz slightly retro looks but full on 4K Atmos Multi Zone Audio Streaming facilities.

    You can set this up like your Great Uncle's Sixties stereo amp and just use the volume and input selector knobs to play records ... or you can run it from its App control and use its Audysys Eq to room correct your 7.2 UHDR Cinema system.

    This is a particular favourite at Carlton Audio Visual

  • Denon AVRX1600H 7 channel Home Cinema Receiver

    The Denon 1600 Receiver has a huge feature set with very high performance for the money. 

    For a long time when Surround Receivers were the province of specialist stores Carlton Audio Visual was the prime purveyor of Denon Receivers in Australia. Those days have gone now with the brand entry models available through the chain stores but we still acknowledge Denon as the feature king of Home Cinema amplifiers.

  • Marantz SR5014 Home Cinema Receiver

    We think this is where you step on the bandwagon of proper Hi Fi kit and decent theatre decoding. It's capable of carrying a respectable stereo performance as well as supporting a wide range of loudspeaker combinations in suround configuration.

    The SR5014 has that slightly retro Marantz aesthetic allied to the ubiquitous Denon Marantz GUI for set up that is utterly straightforward to use once commissioned. 

    This offers a warmer and smoother presentatuion in surround soiund than the competition with a finely nuanced stereo playback with good spatial presentation.

  • Denon AVR-X3500H Home Cinema Amplifier ... the family Theatre Receiver

    We always hold our breath when the new Denon range comes out. For a very long time we were the largest Denon Dealer in Australia and though times have changed with the bulk stores moving in on the brand we still hold our own with this product.

    The 3000 series Receivers have always been the heart of the range. When we are doing a whole house specification with integrated multi zone audio and video controllable via an automation system or phone app this is our main man to call on. We know that when you come across all the unexpected issues like HDMI compliance, video latency, multi room audio control, digital to analogue conversion for Zone 2, reliability in an enclosed cabinet, bass management in multichannel systems, etc etc  ... a Denon 3000 series will give a happy solution to a demanding installation and solve problems you didn't know you were going to have that would have left a competitor's product gasping on the beach of a failed theatre dream

    This latest iteration has added voice control and a few other details to this Swiss army knife of Theatre Amplifers

  • Marantz SR6013 Home Theatre Receiver ... musicality included

    This is the first Imax certified product that we have been able to sell. Like the THX specification this is a standard of very high performance audio and video that a product must pass to qualify for.

    The Marantz SR6013 is also one of our favourite devices for combining musicality with a comprehensive set of Cinema features. The DNM designers have done a really good job on the output stage. It has a phono input and is intended to be properly assayed by critical consumers through good quality loudspeakers rather than sold as an unopened box.

  • Marantz SR7012 Wolf in retro clothing Home Cinema Receiver

    So there is a very distinct case for why you would purchase a Marantz SR7012. At a bit over $4000 it is one of the more expensive Theatre Receivers a customer is likely to buy in Australia. 

    However unlike so many of its other market place competitors this amplifier has been designed for music as well as movies. They have built into the rather massive chassis a very load tolerant output stage with genuine class when it comes to that audition with a testing piece of music or video through possibly contrary loudspeakers.

    In order to be able to produce good music an amplifier must be able to force the drive units to comply with the complex modulations of the signal. Most surround amplifiers quote an arbitrary power output without any parameters and when presented with a real world reactive impedance load of a serious high quality speaker they simply lack the amperage required to drive a complex load cleanly.

    You hear this as poor bass definition and the soundstage tied inexorably to the speaker cabinets rather than projected into the room.

    The Marantz SR7012 will drive real world speakers with impunity and intrinsic musicality. We have purveyed these Receivers with Ambience Ribbon speakers and Dynaudios that would crush a conventional surround amplifier.

  • Denon AVR-X6500H ... a grandiose home theatre Receiver

    Denon amplifiers always dominate the awards in the Home Cinema amplifier categories and the AVRX6500 is no exception.

    "What Hi-Fi?" on the 6500H

    There is an element of smooth brutality in a large Denon Theatre Receiver, they are clean and conservative and well made, and like the Japanese hitman on steroids they will always get the job done where the competitors tend to fail at a crucial moment. 

    It's a difficult game keeping on top of the home theatre receiver market, but an AVRX-6500H will be reassuring in critical areas of video protocol management, loudspeaker reactive load control, and contemporary featureset allied to longevity.

    The 6500 is the current contender for the Receiver crown in the Denon range, it is one step below the awesome thirteen channel AVC8500 but that unit is literally a bridge too far for many customers I would suggest, not so much for its price as for its sheer set up complexity and imposing transducer requirement. While the 8500 is definitely a unit of choice for a fanatic, the 6500 can come home and be captain sensible as a multi room family sound system while still being able to kill it when that particular piece of music or film sound track needs to be cutting edge.

  • Denon AVC-X8500 thirteen channel flagship surround amplifier... a very long affair

    Denon have this thing ... when they do a surround amp range they like to make a generational statement that throws down the gauntlet to other manufacturers.

    The AVC X8500 is this generations gauntlet ...

    We have had a long affair with top of the range Denon amplifiers. We built our surround sound space in the local marketplace with the very first Denon AVR2000 Receiver and then hammered it in with the AVCA1 THX amplifiers. We still have customers out there who own these amps twenty five years later using the 5.1 multichannel input running from an external decoder in a Blu Ray Player. The AVC X8500 will be for those discerning consumers that are able to purchase a surround sound amp that will keep their cinema going for longer and better ... note that this will be the first amplifier to offer an 8K video upgrade ...

  • Marantz AV8802A Dolby Atmos Surround preamplifier with MM8077 Power Amplifier

    It's a terrible thing to have a high end single box surround receiver that becomes outdated due to changes in HDMI and audio codecs so that you basically throw away the whole thing. Ofeten that means discarding a perfectly good multichannel receiver that could still power speakers effectively due to enforced wiring protocol developments turning what was five years ago your pride and joy into 15KG of consumer electronic waste looking for a cosy grave in Northern Suburban landfill ...

    Then you buy the replacement model from the same brand and you discover that while it ticks all the feature boxes with bluetooth, wi-fi, dlna. snaggle waggle ... unfortunately it dosn't sound as good with music and dynamic theatre as the model youv'e just discarded.

    So the first reason you buy a Surround pre and Power combination like this one is to get off the aforesaid Hamster wheel of Built In Obsolescence and waste.

    The second reason is that it sounds fantastic.

    Home Theatre Review on the 8802 and 8077

    When you graduate to a pre and power amplifier like this you have the best of both worlds. The very sensitive low noise circuitry of the preamplifier and processor is separated from the high current demand of the power amplifier and is able to do its job of recovering all the residucal fine detail of the signal to the best possible degree.

    Meanwhile the power amplifier can be freed from the needs of the delcate touch and liberated with massive current reserves able to grip and modulate the reactive load of the loudspeaker drivers with unmitigated force to comply with the complex demands of the sinal produced from the preamplifier stage.
