Sound United brands Denon and Marantz have introduced a 3-in, 1-out 8K HDMI switcher, designed to give owners of compatible Denon and Marantz 8K AVRs the flexibility to easily attach up to three 8K and 4K/120Hz source devices to their entertainment system.
The Denon AVS-3 and Marantz VS3003 switchers feature a compact form factor for easy placement – no bigger than a Blu-ray case in width and depth, with a brushed aluminium front panel and a small hand-held IR remote to switch inputs. On top of that, the switchers are compatible with HDMI CEC, so they will automatically turn on and off, and switch inputs once HDMI CEC is enabled on all connected HDMI devices including the switcher, AV Receiver, TV, and connected 8K source devices. As a bonus, both switchers are also controllable via the AV Receiver’s remote control if a user prefers that option over a dedicated IR remote, or HDMI CEC.
Integrators and enthusiasts will appreciate that both come with detachable wall-mount brackets, as well as IR repeater capability for rack installations, out-of-sight placement or AV furniture that may block IR reception.
