About Home cinema systems

Many different surround sound setups can be created with the Marantz Cinema 70S AV Receiver. It can also decode most of the formats used for encoding surround sound. The simplest and earliest surround sound system used five speakers. There is a front left and right pair as well as a centre speaker for dialogue.

Additionally, there are two rear surround speakers and a subwoofer. This is known as a 5.1 system. However, the Marantz Cinema 70S AV Receiver can also be used to create a 7.2 system. This includes extra side and ceiling speakers for Dolby Atmos-encoded movie soundtracks. Dolby Atmos is an immersive 3D sound system.

About Dolby Atmos

The Marantz Cinema 70S AV Receiver can decode Dolby Atmos movie soundtracks. This unit also has built-in amplifiers that can drive the multiple speakers required. It can also decode most of the DTS formats. Dolby Atmos systems have extra side and height channels that are used to create an immersive 3D soundscape.

Up to 128 sound “objects” can be placed accurately in 3d space. For example, aircraft engine noise can pass overhead and then behind the listener. There are also two subwoofer outputs for earth-shaking bass.

Surround encoding methods

The first surround sound method for movies, used in the home, was Dolby Surround. Dolby Prologic-equipped AV Receivers could decode this and provide a low bandwidth surround sound effect with poor separation. Many TV programs and films used this system on stereo VHS tapes in the 1980s.

However, by 1997 DVD had arrived and Dolby Digital was in use. This had five channels of good-quality sound. It also had a low-frequency effects channel. Rival systems by DTS were also developed and are still in use along with Dolby Atmos.
