A:AnswerThe previous response to your question is correct. The Marantz AV7706 is compatible with 2.1/3.1/4.1/5.1/all the way up to 11.2. A separate amp is required. Feel free to contact Marantz customer support for further assistance. 1-800-654-6633
A:AnswerHello and thank you for your question. The SR7012 has its own pre amp built in and cannot be used with the AV7706. I recommend pairing the AV7706 with the Marantz MM8077 and the Marantz MM7055.
A:AnswerYes, in fact, the issue was never an issue, it was a configuration problem. The PS5 and nVidia RTX30xx cars are confirmed to be working. The Xbox Series X still does not work, but it is believed to be on the Xbox's side. See this:
The AV7706 is a Pre Amplifier and requires a separate power amplifier. Consider pairing it with a Marantz MM8077 and MM7055 for 11 channels of power.
-MM7055 140W a channel (8 ohms) and 170W a channel (6 ohms) RMS Power.
-MM8077 150 W a channel (8 ohm) and 180 W a channel (6 ohm) RMS Power.
Please also consider one of our AV receivers SR8015.
A:AnswerHello and thank you for your question. The AV7706 is a pre amplifier. The three prong plugs you are referring to are balanced outputs to connect to a separate amplifier. I would like to recommend the MM8077 7 channel amplifier and two of the MM7025 2 channels amplifiers. The MM8077 and the MM7025 both have banana plug terminals.
