Denon and Marantz recently announced the industry’s first IMAX® Enhanced audio products (Denon AVR-X8500H and Marantz AV8805) in conjunction with the IMAX Enhanced format launch.

Both brands are now expanding the IMAX Enhanced functionality to the following products via firmware update: Denon AVR-X6500H, Denon AVR-X4500H, Marantz SR8012, Marantz SR7013, Marantz SR6013 and Marantz AV7705 (pictured).

Denon and Marantz home theatre products are currently the only IMAX Enhanced audio solutions currently available to consumers. These devices deliver IMAX digitally re-mastered 4K HDR content and DTS audio technology to consumers. IMAX is also working with its global studio and content partners to make a steady stream of IMAX Enhanced versions of blockbuster movies and additional programming available to watchers.

“IMAX Enhanced has been building impressive momentum since its introduction in late 2018,” said Brendon Stead, senior vice president of product development and engineering at Sound United. “Additional A/V partners, content and distribution are all the traditional signs the format is being enthusiastically adopted. The great news for early adopters is Denon and Marantz, the only home theatre supplier to do so to-date, already offer fantastic AVRs that deliver the IMAX Enhanced experience. So, if you want the magic of the IMAX experience in your home theatre today, you’ll need either Denon or Marantz gear. However, making the technology available on only flagships isn’t what we’re all about. We know enthusiasts want this technology available to them as early as possible, which is why we promised to expand the IMAX Enhanced product lineup. Today, I’m happy to say we executed on that promise, and owners of several more premium Denon and Marantz products are now IMAX Enhanced. Enjoy!”

Customers should have their compatible receivers powered on and connected to the internet to receive the IMAX Enhanced update. For more information on updates and upgrades, visit the Denon and Marantz updates pages.
