Marantz NR1403 review

 

AV receivers can be intimidating , with their giant metal chassis and overwhelming back panels. The Marantz NR1403 ($400) seems like a reaction to that, with a slimline design and sparse back panel that's decidedly different than your typical...

The Marantz NR1403's is significantly thinner than most AV receivers. It packs in six HDMI inputs, which is the most you'll find at this price level. And despite the compact design, its sound quality is comparable to the best we've heard this year.

There's no built-in Wi-Fi or Ethernet, so features like smartphone control and integrated streaming are missing. There's also no built-in Bluetooth, so you'll need a separate device for wireless audio streaming.

The Marantz NR1403 is a slim, handsome AV receiver with excellent sound and plenty of HDMI connectivity, although it lacks built-in networking.

Marantz NR1403 & NR1603 Slimline A/V Recievers Preview

 

The Marantz NR1403 features discrete amplification, tons of HDMI inputs, and Audyssey MultEQ. The NR1603 adds video upconversion, two channels of amplification, a second zone, Apple AirPlay and more.

The Marantz NR1403 is a bare bones receiver with some of the best bones we've ever seen. With discrete amplification, tons of HDMI inputs, and Audyssey MultEQ, it is a new buyer's dream at $400. But if you want more, Marantz has it with the NR1603....

Awesome amp for apartment living

 

The amplifier is a fine product when living in an apartment. The unit is small yet puts out the right amount of power to run my Polk audio speakers. The sound quality at low volumes is second to none. Crisp highs with just enough lows as to not disturb...
