Dual Subwoofer Outputs

A single subwoofer demands optimal placement to avoid audible peaks and dips in the low-frequency response at the main listening position. The AV8805 supports two subwoofers: used in different locations, these will even out the low-frequency response for more accurate bass anywhere in the room.


Whatever your family's entertainment needs, the AV8805 delivers: you can enjoy 13.2-channel surround sound in the main room, and at the same time play stereo sound from another source in a different part of the house. There are versatile configuration options thanks to the 13 channel processing capability.

Smart TV Connectivity

The Marantz AV8805 may be controlled with your Smart TV remote via the HDMI CEC functionality associated with your Smart TV. Simply set “HDMI Control” to ON in your receiver, then set “Smart Menu” to ON and begin controlling the AV8805 with your TV remote. The Smart Menu home screen provides you quick access to source and surround mode selections, the AVR's setup menu and four Smart Selects.

Simple Smart Select Functions

The AV8805 has four Smart Select buttons on the remote control: each stores a preferred setup – input, volume and Audyssey configuration – for a particular source. Push one button and the AV8805 can be perfectly configured for anything, from Blu-ray or your TV set-top box to your favorite Internet radio station.

Easy To Setup, Easy To Use

For easy installation, the AV8805's clear graphical on-screen display has an exclusive Setup Assistant, combining with the Quick Start guide to provide guidance and optimize critical settings for the best possible sound quality, whatever your configuration.

Marantz Factory Refurbished

Buying a Marantz Factory Refurbished product is a great way to get "as-new" products at a considerable savings. Every product has been thoroughly tested, repaired (if necessary), cleaned and otherwise renewed to original condition. Next it’s repackaged with original accessories included. When you consider that a factory-renewed Marantz product undergoes such close scrutiny for defects and workmanship, you might actually be buying something that is in many ways better than new. And for your piece of mind and protection, your purchase is covered by a factory warranty valid at any authorized Marantz repair center (lenght listed in description)

Marantz, like all electronics manufactures, receives products returned for various reasons. In 2011 consumers returned 17 billion dollars in electronics globally, of which less than 5% were found to be defective! Once a product has been opened it must be resold as refurbished and can’t be resold as new again. The history and reason why a product was returned is not provided to us, thus we can’t provide any additional details regarding its past. All products are processed by Marantz certified technicians, where they are fully tested, repaired (only if necessary), and retested again to ensure the highest quality control. Each unit must pass a complete battery of test before it can be titled a "Marantz Factory Refurbished" product.

5 MARANTZ AV8805 13.2-Ch A/V Preamp/Processor w/HEOS
Reviewer: from Virginia Beach, VA
I have tried many brands of preamps in the last few years, and never got the results that I wanted. Finally, in spite of the cost, I decided to try an 8805. It is excellent in every respect, superior to anything else that I have tried. It produces a large and detailed sound field that is a pleasure to experience. This one is a keeper.
As always, thanks to Mark S. for his advice.
