High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) v1.4
The HDMI v1.4 connections on the MARANTZ SR-7007 allows for the transmission of 1080p 3D content between a
3D-compatible Blu-Ray Disc player and a 3D HD display. It also brings in
an audio return channel allowing for two-way transmission of audio. This
allows your television, for example, to send audio back from its
integrated tuner to the receiver, solving the problem of having to run
more than one cable between your A/V receiver and TV.

Audio return channel over HDMI▲
Audio Return Channel
Included in the specifications of HDMI v1.4, ARC (Audio Return Channel) allows an audio signal to be sent from the TV as
well a video signal is sent towards it. In short, this eliminates the need to connect any extra cables (SPDIF or analogue)
to carry audio from your TV tuner to your receiver. In order for this feature to work, both the AV receiver and television
must be v1.4 compatible.

Dolby True HD and DTS HD decoding▲
The MARANTZ SR7007 has
Dolby TrueHD which is a next-generation lossless technology developed
for high-definition disc-based media. It delivers sound that is bit-for-bit
identical to the studio master at a bit rate of up to 18 Mbps. It also supports
up to 8 full-range channels of 24-bit/96 kHz audio (although TrueHD can support
more than 8 channels, HD-DVD and Blu-Ray standards limit it to 8) and extensive
metadata including dialogue normalization and dynamic range control all through
an HDMI connection. Dolby TrueHD is compatible with existing and future AV
The MARANTZ SR-7007 has DTS-HD which has been selected as an optional audio technology for Blu-Ray
Disc and HD-DVD. DTS-HD is a set of extensions to DTS' Coherent Acoustics audio
coding system which encompasses DTS Digital Surround, DTS-ES 6.1 discrete, DTS
Neo:6 and DTS 96/24. As a mandatory technology in the next generation standards,
a DTS decoder will be built into every HD-DVD or Blu-ray Disc player. A single
DTS-HD data stream on a disc can carry everything from standard DTS 5.1 playable
on virtually all existing 280 million plus DTS decoders, all the way to lossless
for next-generation systems.

Dolby Pro-Logic IIz
Taking a 5.1 or 7.1 mix, Dolby ProLogic IIz is able to expand it by creating four new (non-discrete) channels for up to 9.1
surround sound. The system is flexible so you can add new speakers where you want. For example, if you currently have a 5.1
set-up then you can add height channels above your current left and right speakers or you can have them behind you for a more
traditional set-up. Of course, you can always have both and take full advantage of what ProLogic IIz has to offer, with 9.1
A standard 5.1 with newly created height speakers as a 7.1 system.
This new 7.1 set-up can then be expanded by adding two further channels as surround sides for 9.1 channels.

Apple Airplay certified for streaming audio from your iPad/Pod/Phone or iTunes▲
Airplay allows you to use your A/V receiver as a client for iTunes, allowing you to stream all your music from your iTunes library.
Using Airplay effectively identifies your system or receiver as a set of computer speakers, though through iTunes you can allow basic
control from the system (usually skip back/forward, play and pause). You do not get the same search functions you would get with DLNA,
but provided your iPod, iPhone or iPad is on the same network, you can control the playback of iTunes from your iOS device to your receiver.

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA)

USB input with iPod Digital▲
iPod Digital allows you to connect in most modern iPods via USB and playback audio from your iPod, using the interface of the receiver
to browse playlists and tracks. You can also normally view album artwork GUI during playback when connected to a unit with a video output,
like an A/V receiver. However, you can often navigate using the front panel display, removing the need to turn on your television to enjoy
music from your iPod.
Audyssey MultEQ XT
MultEQ XT attempts to calibrate your system to perform as best as possible given the often less-than-ideal room shaped and
materials (such as glass) present in your home cinema. All this is done in a matter of minutes with the included microphone
and the results may range from sharper vocals to a better spatiality to the soundstage. The XT improves on the original MultEQ
to give a better performance with higher-resolution equalization filters.
Audyssey Dynamic EQ and Dynamic VolumeMore Info...
Audyssey Dynamic EQ and Dynamic Volume▲
Audyssey Dynamic EQ
Dynamic EQ ensures that when you turn down your surround sound, channels don't drop out completely. It calculates the
difference between reference and playback level to keep the surround channels in check when the volume is turned down.
Using the information collected by MultEQ/XT/XT32, the volume is corrected according to the particular acoustic properties of
Audyssey Dynamic Volume
Soundtracks are often recorded with volume spikes, and switching between sources can lead to big differences in volume;
setting the volume at any given time does not take these differences into account. Having Audyssey Dynamic Volume on will
set the volume at a steady constant and will increase or decrease depending on the content, ensuring you are not troubled
by spiking volume late at night.

If you only use 5.1 in the main zone you can opt to use the extra amplification on the SR7007 for a second set of stereo speakers that can select a different source from the main zone. Additionally you can use the zone 2 pre-outs to feed a power amp or active speakers and still have 7.1 in the main zone.
