Marantz presents a new classic

Newly redesigned for 2022-23, Marantz has created a receiver that's as pleasing to look at as it is to listen to. They call it "modern expression of timeless design principles." The iconic "porthole" now contains a modern OLED display, and the dimpled front side panels add subtle, stylish touch.

Marantz is one of our most popular A/V receiver brands, and with good reason.  The Marantz Cinema 50 has Audyssey MultEQ® XT32 multi-channel processing to dial in your home theater speakers. A clock jitter reducer delivers pure sound from your digital music files and streaming services with depth and detail. And this receiver's powerful amplification uses custom circuitry to deliver Marantz's time-honored, warm, smooth sound. Enjoy your music as it was meant to be, as close to "original" as you can get.

An enveloping cinematic experience

The Cinema 50 has outputs for 11 speakers, and can power up to nine at the same time. Use all nine channels in a 5.2.4 or 7.2.2 Dolby Atmos or DTS:X® system. Or, go with a more conventional surround sound setup, and repurpose the extra channels for sound in another room.

Marantz has included four subwoofer outputs on its premium receivers this year. Your most bass-heavy music and rumbling movie soundtracks will have exciting new depth. Using multiple powered subs obviously gives you more bass, but also more balanced bass. Choose the "Standard" subwoofer setting for evenly distributed bass performance throughout the room, or "Directional" to tailor each sub's bass performance to the closest speaker.

The Cinema 50's high-powered amplifier can drive just about any power-hungry speakers with authority. It's rated at a significant 110 watts per channel (2-channels driven). If you have unused surround speaker connections, you can even bi-amp your front right and left speakers for a powerful front soundstage.

Advanced room calibration

Audyssey MultEQ® XT32 is one of the industry's best room-correction platforms. It measures the acoustics of your room with the included microphone, and then fine-tunes the output of your system to best match the unique sonic characteristics of your space.

To fully dial-in your system, download the optional Audyssey MultEQ Editor app. It lets you direct the speaker calibration process from your phone or tablet, instead of with the handheld remote control. The app also unlocks additional Audyssey features like EQ curve adjustment, Midrange Compensation control, and the ability to save multiple calibration profiles.

Coming in 2023, you'll also have the option to purchase and download the Dirac Live® advanced speaker calibration program to your Mac® or PC, another state-of-the-art room correction system that can make your system sound its best.

Advanced video processing gets the most out of your sources

Marantz made sure the Cinema 50 is compatible with the latest video technology. All six HDMI inputs and two of three HDMI outputs support 8K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz video content (think Sony's PlayStation® 5, or the Xbox Series X). Or, use a high-quality source like a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player or an Apple TV for outstanding cinema quality.

Music in one room or many

This receiver also lets you stream tunes from your phone or tablet through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or Apple AirPlay 2. Use the built-in phono input to hook up your turntable. You can even play high-resolution tracks from a USB drive or networked computer.

HEOS Built-in technology lets you access all kinds of different content through the Cinema 50. Listen to internet radio stations, or to popular subscription services like Pandora®, Spotify®, and TIDAL.

You can integrate the Cinema 50 into a wireless multi-room audio system with compatible speakers or streaming components. It will also show up in your player list if you're using Roon (subscription required).
