Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you are an American with a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at (281) 277-1522 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for any American with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.

The Marantz AV8801 11.2 channel A/V pre-amp/processor is packed with the latest audio and video technologies, all designed to provide you with the ultimate music and movie surround sound experience.

Equipped with our advanced multi-DSP audio processor, the AV8801 features a broad range of surround sound decoding modes, including support for high resolution audio formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio. For the ultimate surround sound experience, the AV8801 also features expanded multi-channel decoding, including Audyssey DSX and DTS Neo:X, giving you the ability to add additional front height and width channels for a truly expansive and immersive surround sound experience. The AV8801 further enhances audio quality by delicately handling all signals via the Marantz-own HDAMs in Current Feedback topology before being passed to the XLR outputs and separate power amp.

Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room measurement and correction provides easy setup, via the included microphone, and custom generates high resolution digital filters for each speaker and subwoofer, providing smooth tailored acoustic response with correction in both frequency and time domains (conventional equalization only provides frequency tailoring).
The AV8801 is also equipped with Audyssey's LFC (low frequency containment) option, which custom tailors deep bass response to minimize deep bass leakage into adjacent rooms or apartments, while still providing a satisfying wide range listening experience.

Audyssey Dynamic Volume monitors and corrects for annoying jumps in signal levels, providing a satisfying listening experience at any volume setting, and Audyssey Dynamic EQ provides precision frequency contouring that delivers enjoyable wide range sound quality even at reduced listening levels, ideal for late-night listening. Audyssey Sub EQ HT processing optimizes dual subwoofer setups, providing custom deep bass tailoring for the smoothest and most dynamic deep bass response from both subs.

The video section features advanced high resolution video processing and decoding, and is equipped with video upscaling that upconverts standard definition (SD) video sources from legacy components to high definition. For compatibility with the latest Ultra High Definition (4K) displays, the AV8801 features the ability to upconvert SD and HD to Ultra High Definition (4K), and it can also accept and pass-through 4K content.

A full suite of video connectivity options includes multiple assignable composite and component video inputs, along with no less than 7 HDMI inputs, including a front panel HDMI input that lets you easily connect an HDMI enabled portable device. There are 3 HDMI outputs, including dual outputs for the main zone, which lets you connect two HD displays, such as a flat panel HDTV and an HD front projector. The third HDMI output let's you enjoy a different program in another room, and the InstaPrevue function let's you preview video from connected HDMI sources in multiple picture-in-picture windows.

To handle today's wideband high dynamic range content, the audio section is equipped with the latest high resolution 192 kHz/32-bit DACs on all channels. The AV8801 can decode WAV, FLAC and ALAC audio files, and includes gapless audio playback. For maximum system configuration capability, the AV8801 is equipped with both unbalanced (RCA) and balanced (XLR) audio outputs. Vinyl fans will surely appreciate the inclusion of a phono input, and there's no need for a separate tuner, as the AV8801 features a built-in HD Radio tuner. With HD Radio, AM sounds like FM, and FM sounds like CD.

The AV8801 includes full networking capabilities, including a 4-port Ethernet switch that lets you make one connection to your home LAN with three additional connections available so you can connect other source components, such as a network-capable Blu-ray player. AirPlay lets you stream your favorite content from a variety of Apple devices, such as an iPod touch, iPhone or iPad, and the AV8801 includes network streaming functions such as Pandora and SiriusXM internet radio as well as Spotify, along with the ability to stream music and photos over the home network.

Why NSI Protection Plus?

Our service plan is an economical way to extend the terms of your product's manufacturer parts & labor warranty.

Most manufacturer's limited warranties leave customers with no protection against the rising cost of repairs.

Even the best products can malfunction and the most minor repairs can cost hundreds.

About NSI Protection Plus

Administered by Warrantech and insured by AmTrust Financial, NSI Protection Plus is the largest service network in the industry with 30 years of building the network and over 22 million in paid claims.

The most comprehensive repair plans in the business!

  • Day one coverage on special features
  • Removal and reinstallation coverage
  • $25 Laundry credit (Washers and Dryers)
  • 5 year appliance contracts include 10 year major component coverage
  • $250 Food credit (per incident, eligible products)
  • The only true "No Lemon Guarantee" in the business
  • No "CAP" on repairs or replacement, unlimited repairs.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
