AUSTIN, Texas -- When leading consumer audio manufacturer Marantz launched their newest flagship consumer audio/video receiver (AVR), they turned to Cirrus Logic Inc.'s (Nasdaq:CRUS) flagship audio digital signal processor (DSP): the CS49520.

The ultimate in quality, the Marantz SR9600 is a multichannel AVR that brings a new level of audio fidelity and installation flexibility to the premium receiver consumer category. With its dual-core, 32-bit digital signal processors, the Cirrus Logic CS49520 forms the heart of the audio processing system, delivering 240 MIPS (millions of instructions per second) of audio processing power for an extremely robust capability to perform a wide variety of complex multichannel audio processing audio algorithms, such as 7.1-channel Dolby Pro-Logic(R) IIx, THX(R) Surround EX(TM), and full-blown DTS(R) technologies including DTS-ES96/24, DTS Neo:6 Cinema and Music.

"Cirrus Logic's CS49520 gave us the superior audio performance with real 32-bit/96-kHz processing we needed to help make the SR9600 audio/video receiver the premier product in its category," said Kevin Zarow, Vice President, Marketing & Product Development, Marantz America, Inc.

"The CS49520 is Cirrus Logic's flagship audio DSP and it has been specifically designed for demanding products that require advanced audio processing performance and features," said Keith Cheney, vice president, Embedded Products Division, Cirrus Logic. "In recent years, Marantz and Cirrus Logic have worked closely together to provide consumers with the latest in new audio features, such as Dolby Pro Logic IIx, and we look forward to working with Marantz in the future to continue to develop superior audio products."

The SR9600 has a suggested retail price of $4,199.
