Marantz Flagship AV pre-amplifier AV8802 HDCP 2.2 upgrade soon available

April 9th, 2015 – Marantz, a world leader in advanced audio technologies, just announced the offer of a hardware upgrade for their AV8802 flagship AV pre-amplifier. The current owners of their beloved home cinema centre will now be able to upgrade it to support future-proof HDCP 2.2 copy protection protocol, needed to play back copy-protected 4k Ultra-HD content. The upgrade requires hardware modification at our D&M Service Centre. Starting in June 2015, this will be arranged on request for free. Customers who wish to perform the HDCP 2.2 upgrade should get in contact with D&M Service Centre at 25165864 (Ext.101) for the detail upgrade procedure and arrangement from June 2015 onwards. At the same time, Marantz will start selling the factory-upgraded AV8802A model, gradually replacing the AV8802, at the same price (SRP: HK$31,180).

For owners of either AV8802A or AV8802, the unique Auro-3D software upgrade will continue to be available through http://upgrade.marantz.eu

On a separate note, Marantz announced a plan to offer a software update to add new DTS:X immersive surround sound format to the AV8802A and AV8802 later this year. Details will be revealed soon.
