Marantz NR1504 NR1604 Slim AV Receivers Preview

Marantz NR1504


Good auto setup, detects whatever you have connected (I have a 3.0 setup) Lovely sound Plenty of power Enough inputs for most needs Audio return via single Hdmi from tv Simple switch between surround (movie mode) and stereo (music mode)

No composite video (for Wii etc), but my tv has that.
