The feature array includes advanced HDMI 1.3 repeating capability, HD Radio, THX Select2 processing, THX Neural Surround, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, and dts HD Master Audio.

To preserve audio integrity, Marantz used a toroidal power transformer and copper chassis.

The receiver has four HDMI 1.3 inputs and two HDMI 1.3 outputs. HDMI 1.3a repeating capability is said to eliminate signal loss and allow the receiver to repeat 1080p video signals from HDMI input to HDMI output as well as to decode audio signals via HDMI.
