All Cables are NOT the Same

Learn the Truth about 4K HDMI Cables and Bandwidth

 


Learn The Truth about 4K HDMI Cables

If you’re investing in a 4K/ HDR display or home theater system, you’ll need to also invest in the right 4K cables. Otherwise, you’ll never actually experience the true potential of 4K / HDR because the amount of data necessary to produce this high level of picture won’t be able to reach your 4K device. You’ll end up seeing a reduced quality image that might not be much better than what you were getting before your upgrade.

In this whitepaper, we’ll explain why and how this happens

The All-New SR7013 Headlines Marantz’s Pre-CEDIA Launch Announcement (August 8, 2018) Marantz is officially prepped and ready for CEDIA 2018 with the recent announcement of three new SR-Series receiver models. Last week, the company officially revealed details about the pending US launch of its SR7013, and SR5013 ) AVRs, each of which is scheduled to ship in September. The company hasn’t released any information about an SR8012 refresh, however it held that particular native 11-channel performer close to its chest last fall, waiting until a CEDIA media event for an exciting reveal.

Much like the SR7012 (
reviewed here), the SR7013 carries 9 channels of amplification (125 watts per channel, 8 Ohm, 20 Hz – 20 kHz, 2 channels driven) for native Atmos systems as large as 5.2.4 or 7.2.2, with onboard processing allowing two channels of external amplification for arrangements up to 7.2.4. And, once again, Auro 3D ships unlocked, giving owners access to the immersive sound trifecta of Atmos, Auro-3D, and DTS:X. This is particularly exciting because it grants new model owners the ability to experience both Auro-2D and 3D audio processing out of the box, the former of which is a formidable competitor to stereo up-mixing solutions offered by Dolby and DTS.

Internally, Marantz says the SR7013 features high-current discrete power amps on all channels, with the company’s Hyper Dynamic Amplification Module (HDAM) circuitry lending to an extremely clean and pure sound quality. For enthusiasts looking for Hi-Res functionality, the SR7013 can decode up to 24-bit/192 kHz ALAC, FLAC, and WAV lossless files along with DSD 2.8/5.6 MHz, further lending to audio purity.

On the HDMI front, all eight of the SR7013’s HDMI inputs support 4K video functionality, with the notable inclusion of Dolby Vision and HLG high dynamic range passthrough. And, coming later this year, a firmware release will unlock eARC and ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) on two inputs. eARC (which allows for transmission of object-based audio from a TV to an AVR over HDMI) and ALLM (which switches the AVR to low latency mode when connected to Xbox One and supported TVs) are both HDMI 2.1 specification features, but it’s unclear if any of Marantz’s 2018 AVR models carry true HDMI 2.1 chip sets. We’ve reached out to the manufacturer and will relay any information as it becomes available.

The SR7013 ships with the full Audyssey Platinum package, which features Audyssey’s top-flight MultEQ XT32 room correction suite and both Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ. Owners can buy an optional Audyssey MultEQ editor app ($20, iOS/Android) to unlock a customizable room correction experience.

All three new AVRs can tap wireless music services using Bluetooth, the free HEOS app, and Apple’s brand-new AirPlay 2 technology. Airplay 2 is a revised version of Apple’s popular AirPlay tech, allowing users to stream audio to multiple devices and multiple rooms in a home. Additionally, popular services such as Spotify, Pandora, Sirius XM, TuneIn, TIDAL, Amazon Music, and Deezer have onboard support with control via Amazon Alexa and HEOS.

“For more than 65 years, Marantz has produced some of the purest sounding and most visually stunning products for music lovers, critical listeners and home theater buffs worldwide,” said Emmanuel Millot, global brand director at Marantz. “The latest additions to the SR-series receivers continue building on that legacy of exceptional home entertainment experiences by adding in technologies that consumers care about most, including 3D immersive audio, Apple Airplay 2 and stunning visual pass-through capabilities.”

SONY vs JVC Shootout - Two Top Projectors Go Head to Head!

4K Precision JVC e-shift5 Technology The 5th generation of e-shift analyzes every pixel in a native 4K signal to provide more optimization and better sharpening. It also vastly improves the detail in very small text. AUTO mode in Multiple Pixel Control conveniently detects your current input and adds signal compatibility extending to 4K60P (up to 4:4:4).

SONY VPL-VW385


SONY vs JVC Shootout - Two Top Projectors Go Head to Head!

Review excerpt:

So, while the Sony has true 4K resolution at $US5K and $US8K price points, the JVC at almost the same price points has a wider color gamut and deeper contrast - plus will accept a 4:4:4 60P 4K HDR signal, which the Sony will not. This is due to the fact that the JVC models will all accept 18 Gbps inputs, while the Sony units are limited to 13.5 Gbps.

Link for the complete review by The Screening Room AV

It's one thing to compare the published specs of two different high performance projectors like the Sony VPL-VW385 and a JVC DLA-RS640 on paper, but it's another to actually compare both products in person, side by side. Fortunately we have both projectors on display in our showroom, which made the comparison easy to achieve. On October 30th we spent an entire day pitting the two against each other at our demo theater here in Colorado Springs. 

Before we get to the results, it's worth noting that the Sony VPL-VW385 is essentially the same projector as the Sony VPL-VW285, only with the benefit of an automatic iris to bump up dynamic picture contrast. Native contrast on the VW285 and VW385 are the same, so we thought the VW385 was an ideal test candidate since it is essentially two projectors in one. :)

Similarly, the JVC DLA-RS640 used during our test is practically the same unit as the JVC DLA-RS540, only with hand-selected optics and DILA chips for the ultimate "tweaked" performance. However, as you can tell by clicking on the links, the RS640 and RS540 have almost identical specs and feature sets. Much like the Sony VW385 served as a stand in for the VW285, the RS640 serves as a stand in for the RS540.

Grandview ALR Ambient Light Rejection Screens

Grandview ALR Ambient Light Rejection Screens for Short Throw Projectors

 

Features such as larger screen sizes and wider angles are commonly important factors when deciding on a projection screen. As projection screen setups have evolved past dedicated theatre room use only, the need for a screen that can function in less than ideal light environments has become an ever increasing important factor. Grandview's new ALR (Ambient Light Rejection) screen technology has arrived and is that solution. It pairs perfectly with ultra-short throw projectors and even in a room environment with natural ambient light, you can now enjoy a bright and high contrast experience similar to flat panel TVs but in larger sizes. It brings the projection experience into multi-purpose, living and other ambient light rooms like never before. The fabric has a special surface and coating that reflects projection at a specific angle while at the same time absorbing ambient light from other angles. It boasts deep black levels, high contrast and excellent colour saturation.

* This product can only be used with table-top ultra-short throw projectors.

Come take a Test Drive in our Demo Theater configured with Dolby Atmos 5.1.4


 


We have recently updated our Demo Theater in Vancouver to include the new KEF THX Certified Extreme Speakers in a Dolby Atmos 5.1.4 configuration.

In real life, sound comes from all around. But conventional surround systems only allocate it horizontally – left, right, ahead and behind. What makes Dolby Atmos so staggeringly realistic is that the movement of every sound in the scene is reproduced in all three dimensions, including vertically. This creates a true 3D acoustic image of precisely located individual sounds that move in relation to you as if you were actually there. The effect is uncanny. Exhilarating. Sometimes scary, sometimes hilarious; always engrossing.

HDMI® Accelerator

JVC launched its new 4K e-shift4 projectors at CEDIA Expo. The new projectors added support for full spec 18Gbps HDMI 2.0a with HDCP 2.2, which could challenge many of the current HDMI cable options that are available to dealers. And without the right connection, it's impossible to take advantage of the new projectors' impressive performance.

That's why JVC partnered with Metra Home Theater Group. The HDM-GA1 from Metra transforms existing hard-wired passive HDMI cables into full 4K and HDR resolution capable transmission systems.

JVC had worked with Metra in the past, so the company felt comfortable turning to Metra once again for a workable solution. Of course, JVC had stringent needs.

“A 4K signal is much more demanding in terms of the required bandwidth. This is magnified even more with the capabilities of the new JVC projectors and the new UHD 4K Blu-ray players. In the past, 10.2 Gbps was adequate for a High Speed HDMI connection. Now signals are being passed that can require the full 18 Gbps. Our new projectors are the only ones in their price class that meet those standards of a full spec 18 Gbps HDMI connection with HDMI 2.0a and HDCP2.2, assuring our projectors are ready for the future of 4K,” reports Chris Deutsch, product and training manager for JVC.

AT6012 Series 12 Channel/6 Zone  Amplifier

 


Multi-Room or Audiophile: the Choice is Yours!

Frankly, ATI's AT6012 amplifier was designed for use in high-performance multi-room systems where performance, accuracy and reliability were requisite. With 60 watts RMS available full-band with all 12-channels driven into 8 ohms loads and 90 watts x 12 available at 4 ohms, and all of the hallmarks that make ATI special; MOH toroidal transformers; double-sided glass-epoxy circuit boards; independent power supplies for each channel; optically coupled protection circuitry; etc., the AT6012 makes a grand statement in a grand home.

At least that was our thinking until Siegfried Linkwitz, scientist and audiophile (and eternally famous in audio circles for the Linkwitz-Riley crossover), designed his state-of-the-art tri-amplified Orion speaker system and recommended the AT6012 as its perfect powered accompanist. So we've changed our thinking. While the AT6012 can be used for high performance, multiroom audio, its quality level is so good it can also be recommended for high performance audiophile speakers. The choice is yours.

Unlike other multi-room amplifiers, the AT6012 is designed to provide up to six rooms of sound with no additional multi-room audio electronics required. Each channel pair of the 6012 has its own high-quality motorized volume control. Add six up/down switches (like the Leviton 5657-2E or other single pole, double-throw, center "off" switches) to achieve independent volume control for each room.

The AT6012 is the perfect solution for those multi-room sound installations requiring the utmost in flexibility, reliability and audiophile quality sound. This 12-channel, 6-zone power amplifier incorporates the same legendary sound and design criteria as our other award winning amplifiers-without exception. The AT6012 consists of six 2-channel modules and each zone's volume (gain) can be remotely adjusted. While elegant in concept and design, the AT6012 is rugged and will withstand the rigors of even the most demanding requirements. Critical components such as toroidal transformers and circuit boards are manufactured and assembled in our own factory, guaranteeing consistent quality control. Features including DMC (Detachable Modular Component), Remote-Power-On and our Isolated Optical Protection Circuit are but a few of the advanced design concepts that add up to make ATI amplifiers the best value in the industry. Circuitry in the AT6012 is totally complementary from input to output using dual-differential input stages. Pre-drivers then drive the full-complementary output stage.

Marantz Power Amplifiers

MM8077 7-Channel

Designed for the ultimate music and movie surround sound experience, the MM8077 7-channel power amplifier is equipped with the same amplifier technologies that are incorporated in our reference class hi-fi amplifiers, including our unique current feedback discrete power amplifier stage design, which features a high slew rate that provides a wide bandwidth for the utmost enjoyment of today’s high resolution audio formats. At the heart of the MM8077 is our high current power supply, which features a massive toroidal power transformer that provides substantial headroom for dynamic peaks along with the ability to handle lower impedance speaker loads. The MM8077 is rated at 150 watts per channel into 8 ohms for each of the 7 channels. For the ultimate home theater experience, you can pair the MM8077 with our MM7705 5-channel power amplifier, which lets you enjoy thrilling 11-channel surround sound with the latest multi-channel audio formats, such as DTS Neo:X. For easy control, the MM8077 features remote power on/off control compatibility with select Marantz A/V pre-amplifiers, such as our AV8802A

MM7055 5-Channel

From its sculptured front panel to its high quality loudspeaker binding-post s, the MM7055 five channel power amplifier brings Marantz sound quality to virtually any music or home theater system. Using technologies originally developed for the exclusive Marantz Reference Series, this flexible amplifier boasts many possible uses, all united by the singular quest for perfection that has long distinguished Marantz.

The MM7055 power amplifier produces 140 watts of high current output from each of its five channels. This is “real world” power, too, measured across the full audio bandwidth (20 Hz – 20 kHz) at 8 ohms with 0.08% Total Harmonic Distortion. Among other attributes, this means the MM7055 is capable of long term power delivery into low impedance speakers.

MM7025 2-Channel

The Marantz MM7025 Stereo Power Amplifier answers many needs for both two-channel devotees and home theater enthusiasts alike. It produces 140 watts of full-bandwidth, very low distortion power per channel, so it can precisely control demanding speakers in large rooms or deliver subtle nuance in smaller acoustic environments.

 

XSPOT Wire Location System

 

XSPOT Wire Location System

Xspot Products was invented by Mark Sipe, a veteran low voltage contractor, who wanted to resolve the high cost and inefficiency of wiring homes. The issue peaked on a 14,000 square foot job where the sheet-rocker had buried dozens of wires requiring three days of labour to tone out the wire locations.  This is when the idea of Xspot began.

Now in our 10th year, Xspot Products has been used in Residential and Commercial projects in the US and Internationally to control the quality and time to build a robust wiring infrastructure. 

 

Using powerful magnets, wire is looped through the Xspot and securely mounted behind the wall's surface.  The buried Xspot is later located within minutes, accurate to 1/4 inch through an inch of wood. 

Xspots are also Re-Usable and Re-Sellable.

ALLIGATOR® All-Purpose Anchors

 


ALLIGATOR® All-Purpose Anchors

ALLIGATOR anchors are designed to hold high loads in solid walls, ceilings, and floors ... but also hold securely when they encounter an unexpected cavity, such as in hollow brick or hollow block, or even in drywall or, especially, in tile over drywall. The specially formulated polypropylene body flows into and locks up with any undercuts in the hole, bonding the screw to the wall and sealing the hole to prevent moisture from entering. Optimal holding values [measured in tons] are obtained in highly dense substrates by using a screw diameter and a drill diameter of the same size as the anchor diameter. The anchor is available both unflanged for pushthrough mounting and with a flange for use where a cavity is anticipated (drywall, hollow brick, etc.).

The all NEW E Series Architectural CI Speakers

Heard but not seen, with unprecedented value and performance, KEF’s E series of architectural speakers is designed and manufactured to the same exacting standards as all KEF’s architectural offerings and features KEF’s famed Uni-Q driver technology.

KEF’s Uni-Q driver enables the mid-range and tweeter to act as a single point source. This patented technology allows the listener to sit anywhere in the room and still enjoy KEF’s world-renowned sound and clarity without having to be positioned in the narrow “sweet-spot” found with conventional speaker designs.

The E Series also features KEF’s Ultra-Thin Bezel (UTB) technology which offers the thinnest possible visible rim around the speaker assembly. The bezel and grill can be painted to match the interior décor.

All KEF Ci architectural speakers, including the speakers in the E Series, are manufactured to Marine Grade Construction standards: The grilles are coated via a proprietary process, the speakers include moisture-resistant terminations and finish materials, and the plastics are UV protected, allowing you to safely use these speakers in applications other speakers in its price-range simply cannot be considered for – such as your bathroom, poolside, or on your yacht!

Ci T Series Low Profile Speakers

 
KEF’s T Series of architectural speakers deliver unprecedented performance and flexibility when there is limited space behind the wall or ceiling. Needing less than 36mm (1 7/16 inch) of mounting depth both the Round Ci160TR and Square Ci160TS are the thinnest ever for a two-way speaker design. Complimenting them is the Ci200TRb, a remarkable 200mm (8inch) woofer needing only 59mm (2 11/32 inch) of mounting depth.

The KEF Ci T Series 1inch aluminum dome tweeter features KEF’s unique “tangerine waveguide” for natural high frequency response with wide and even dispersion. The rigid, flat, 4.5inch diaphragm of the MF driver (derived from KEF’s Ultra-Thin T Series on-wall speakers) provides clean upper bass and mid-range with excellent bass extension – all in an assembly less than 1½-inch thick. Now every installer’s nightmare – ductwork, electrical conduits and plumbing situated in the exact spot the in-wall speaker needs to go – can easily be turned into a dream install.

All KEF Ci architectural speakers, including the T Series, are manufactured to Marine Grade Construction standards: The grilles are coated via a proprietary process, the speakers include moisture-resistant terminations and finish materials, and the plastics are UV protected. All are built to withstand harsh salt-spray and humid environments, allowing you to safely use these speakers in applications other speakers simply cannot be considered for – bathrooms, poolside or on your yacht.

Need to convert a conventional Speaker into a Stereo Speaker?

 

CiTR-SM Stereo to Mono Adapter

Situations often arise in multi room music distribution system in which there is only enough space to locate a single speaker. This usually happens in smaller rooms such as bathrooms where the ceiling space is limited either because of the inherently small size of the room, or much of the available space is taken up for lights and air vents. Using a conventional in ceiling speaker in this circumstance would yield compromised playback of only the left or right channel of the stereo signal, which is less than mono. Half of the music. Not good. The clever engineers at KEF have created an intelligent solution to overcome this all too common problem. The new CiTR-SM

• The CiTR-SM takes the separate left and right channels from the output of a stereo amplifier and combines them so they will playback into virtually any single speaker, with no compromise to the electronics, speaker or musical signal.

• With the CiTR-SM an installer is not limited to using an in-ceiling speaker for this application; they can choose ANY form factor - be it in-ceiling, in-wall, outdoor, on-wall, bookshelf or floor standing. Limitless choice.

• Should you choose to run the left and right speaker wires to the speakers, the CiTR-SM could be located behind the speaker. If the CiTR-SM is located at the electronics, time and money are saved because only a single speaker wire needs be connected from the CiTR-SM to the speaker.

Introducing the HEOS Drive




 

The Details
For maximum flexibility, the line level outputs are configurable. In their out-of-box state, they are full bandwidth and variable, allowing a zone to be used in conjunction with an external power amplifier if needed. In this application, the 12-volt trigger output typically can be used to provide a turn-on signal to the connected power amplifier. Alternatively, these outputs can set to fixed if being used in conjunction with an amplifier with its own volume control. Beyond that, the line-level outputs can be set to insert a high-pass filter with selectable crossover frequencies. In any setting, the line-level outputs are set to stereo in their out-of-box state. However, for most distributed audio applications, they can be switched to mono, allowing for both the left and right channels to play out of either speaker.

The left line level output can be configured as a subwoofer output with selectable low-pass filter frequencies. This would allow the use of the HEOS App to remotely choose the crossover frequency for the subwoofer rather than setting it on the subwoofer itself. In this application, the LFE input of the subwoofer should be used rather than its line-level inputs, thereby bypassing the subwoofer’s internal crossover.

The speaker-level outputs match the settings of the line-level outputs as either full-range or high-pass. As is the case with the line-level outputs, high-pass crossover frequencies can be set using the latest version of the HEOS App.

The HEOS Drive will be controllable by all the same 3rd-party control solutions as the rest of the HEOS family of products. Please check with your preferred vendors for driver availability.

The HEOS Amp and HEOS Link have already developed a reputation as offering best-in-class sound quality, build quality, flexibility and output in the case of the Amp. From their Burr-Brown DACs and ELNA capacitors to their dual-layer chassis, the HEOS Amp and Link have set themselves apart from all other wireless multi-room audio amplifiers and preamplifiers. However, when an installation calls for more than two channels of amplification, multiple HEOS Amps must be used, and they are too wide to fit side-by-side on a rack mount shelf.

Enter the NEW HEOS Drive. Offering a combination of performance and configurability that is unprecedented and unequaled, the HEOS Drive will quickly become a "go to" product for complex, multi-room distributed audio installations using passive loudspeakers.

The Basics
The HEOS Drive is a 2U (with feet removed), rack-mountable, 8-channel, 4-zone HEOS amplifier and preamplifier. Each channel is rated at 70 watts into 8 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz at less than .1% THD. Two or four channels of the Drive can be bridged, allowing it to be reconfigured as a 6- or 4-channel amplifier. In bridged mode, the Drive is rated to deliver in excess of 100 watts per channel. Each zone can be treated as if it were an independent HEOS Amp or Link, allowing for streaming of all physical and cloud-based content supported by the HEOS App. The Drive offers the same IP control of Denon and Marantz AVRs as the Link.

In addition to the high quality, 5-way binding posts, each zone of the Drive includes a pair of analog inputs and outputs, a USB port, and a 12-volt trigger output. There are also two optical and two coaxial digital inputs. All inputs are matrixed, so that any source connected to any zone of the HEOS Drive can be made available as a source for any other zone. All inputs can be named to make source navigation easier for both the integrator and end user. There is a pair of Ethernet ports, allowing for as many as eight HEOS Drives to be daisy-chained for a total of 32 zones. The Drive is supplied with removable feet and rack mount ears. In recognition of its intended application, the HEOS Drive is the only HEOS product without built-in Wi-Fi.

The HEOS Drive uses the same Class-D amplifier topology as the HEOS Amp, a product that has been widely regarded as offering the best sound quality in the category. The HEOS Drive uses the same high performance digital-to-analog converter as the HEOS Amp and Link: The Burr-Brown PCM5102A 32-bit, 384kHz DAC. Finally, the HEOS Drive includes a Dolby Digital/Digital+ decoder to allow a display or set-top-box to be connected directly using its digital output regardless of the output setting of the device. Multi-channel audio will be down-mixed into stereo.

Audyssey Pro Calibration Kit

Audyssey Pro Calibration Kit

At the core of everything Audyssey creates is our first technology, MultEQ™. Based on 6 years and $6 million of research at the USC Immersive Audio Lab, MultEQ delivers accurate, enveloping, and distortion-free sound in any listening environment. It has won numerous awards and is the basis of several other Audyssey technologies. MultEQ has been established as the standard room correction technology for today's leading audio products.

Measurement
Room distortion is caused by sound reflecting from surfaces within the listening space. A patented time domain method was developed to accurately capture the negative effects of these reflections at multiple locations.
 
Clustering
The distribution of the problems caused by reflections is not uniform. Traditional averaging techniques give equal weight to each problem. Audyssey developed a new method to automatically assign greater importance to larger problems, therefore using processing resources more effectively.

Equalization
With this information, MultEQ creates equalization filters for each channel resulting in improved soundstage, accurate tonal balance and smoother bass.

Audyssey MultEQ Pro allows up to 32 calibration points (unlike the capped 8 position calibration of MultEQ XT). The Sound Equalizer is intended for the custom installer market. An Audyssey-trained installer uses the Installer Kit that comes with an individually calibrated mic (with cal file that matching it to an industry-standard ¼" B & K reference mic), calibrated preamp, USB cable, mic stand, and 72' of XLR cables. Best of all it comes in a beautiful padded carry case that can be taken on-site for MultEQ Pro installations.

Two mounting screws are hidden behind the grommet and offer a clean, unobtrusive presentation.

    Installation is quick and simple using a hole saw and attaches to acoustical ceiling tiles and/or gypsum board. Low voltage brackets are no longer needed - reducing labor and a whole lot of mess from hand cutting large rectangular holes.
