The Anthem AVM 60 is an 11.2 channel preamplifier-processor which supports both the Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object-based audio formats, as well as the Dolby Surround and DTS Neural:X upmixers. The AVM 60 includes Anthem Room Correction (ARC), DTS Play-Fi and is ready for 4K UHD TV and UHD Blu-ray with support for HDMI 2.0a, HDCP 2.2, HDR (high dynamic range), BT. 2020 wide color gamut, and Dolby Vision.
The Marantz AV8802 defines what it means to be a flagship A/V processor and preamp. Featuring support for up to 11.2 channels of immersive sound, the AV8802 includes Dolby Atmos, Dolby Surround, and the complete Audyssey Platinum suite. It can be optionally software upgraded to support Auro-3D and even the hardware can be updated to the latest HDMI 2.0a standard so the AV8802 is ready for the future of 4K and HDR video content.
Today, there are more SSP options on the market, but few of them are as up-to-date as the AV7702. Considering the AV7702's hardware and feature upgrades from the AV7701, I am impressed Marantz managed to keep the price so close to the old AV7701's.
