Denon and Marantz Enhance Home Theater Enjoyment with Crestron Connected™ AVR's
Posted on Wednesday, September 25, 2013
 Crestron cloud-based control system connectivity makes integration of D+M products easier than ever

D+M Group (parent company of Denon and Marantz), a global company dedicated to enhancing life through inspired sound solutions, is making their AVR and preamplifier system connectivity and integration easier by adding Crestron Connected™ technology to many of its AVR's and preamplifiers. Coming soon the Denon models: AVR-X3000, AVR-X4000 and AVR-4520CI and Marantz models: SR6008, SR7008, AV7701 and AV8801 will have Crestron control intelligence embedded, making integration of many features like multi-zone audio and network streaming control simpler than ever for custom installers. Crestron Connected will be added to the Denon and Marantz products via online firmware update later this year.

"By partnering with Crestron, a world class leader in advanced control and automation services, we are able to simplify the integration process for the many custom integrators who sell our products," said Paul Belanger, product manager for D+M.

Crestron Connected provides the framework for a distributed cloud-based control system for consumer electronics. By collaborating with Denon and Marantz, Crestron is embedding its control platform intelligence into many of D+M's AVR and preamplifier units. The AVR's that come with Crestron Connected are easily connected to any home or enterprise network using a standard Ethernet cable. Each is seamlessly monitored, managed and controlled from any web-enabled laptop computer or mobile device, such as an Apple® iPod®, iPad® or Android™ smartphone or tablet through Crestron Fusion RV™ software, with no programming required.

"We're excited to announce this partnership between Crestron and Denon and Marantz," says Steve Samson, Crestron Director of Business Development. "Embedding Crestron intelligence in Denon and Marantz receivers allows for seamless communication with Crestron home automation solutions, giving installers a simplified home theater solution and homeowners complete control of their home entertainment system."

Crestron Connected provides an easy to implement out-of-the-box solution.
