Denon, Marantz Add 3-Source 8K, 4K/120Hz HDMI Switchers For AVRs
Sound United’s Denon and Marantz A/V electronics brands introduced Friday a pair of 3-in, 1-out 8K HDMI switchers designed to make it easier to switch between up to three different 8K/60 and 4K/120Hz signal sources through compatible Denon and Marantz 8K A/V receivers and processors.
The Denon (AVS-3) and Marantz (VS3003) switchers are compact boxes about the size of a Blu-ray case in width and depth, with a brushed aluminum front panel. Included is a small hand-held IR remote to switch between multiple ultra high-speed input signal sources connected to a single compatible input on a Denon or Marantz AVR with a limited number of such HDMI ports active.
The Denon AVS-3 and Marantz VS3003 HDMI switchers will be available for $199 each starting in October, from the Denon and Marantz web sites and authorized dealers.

The switchers are compatible with HDMI-CEC protocols enabling them to automatically turn on or off, and switch inputs. This will require HDMI-CEC to be switched on in each connected HDMI device, including the switcher, AV receiver, TV, and connected 8K source devices.
The companies said that “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 and IR repeater capability for rack installations, out-of-sight placement or AV furniture and other obstacles that could block IR line-of-sight signal reception.
Compatible AV Receiver and Processor Models from Denon and Marantz include the following:
