Sound United brands Denon and Marantz both introduced a three-in, one-out 8K HDMI switcher. The switcher gives owners of compatible Denon and Marantz 8K AVRs the ability to attach up to three 8K and 4K/120Hz source devices to their entertainment system.
The Denon AVS-3 and Marantz VS3003 switchers are compact with a brushed aluminum front panel and a small hand-held IR remote to switch inputs. The switchers are compatible with HDMI CEC and 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. Both switchers are also controllable via the AV receiver’s remote control. Both devices come with detachable wall-mount brackets and IR repeater capability for rack installations, out-of-sight placement or AV furniture that may block IR reception.
The Denon AVS-3 and Marantz VS3003 HDMI switchers will be available in October 2021 for an MSRP of $199.00.
