Marantz NR1504 NR1604 Slim AV Receivers Preview

 

The Marantz NR1504 and NR1604 don't sacrifice audio quality, features, and style just because they have have a low profile design.

We've long been fans of the Marantz NR line, and the new NR1504 and NR1604 have done nothing to change that. Sporting high end audio components, discrete amplification, Apple AirPlay, Audyssey MultEQ, and much, much more, there is a lot to like. At a...

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.

a great receiver

 

The receiver set up easily and was incorporated into my overall system as soon as I took it out of the box. It has been working beautifully ever since.

Great product for the price

 

I recently purchased a higher end Denon receiver and love it. I wanted the same features but did not want to spend the money due to the location of this unit. Tech at the store recommended this receiver and I installed it. Install was easy and it has...

Quality receiver

 

I was amazed at how great this sounded even with my dated bookshelf speakers. Very easy on screen walk through and automatic tuning with the provided microphone made it worth the money alone. But the quality is amazing in itself.

no cleaner sound

 

Bought one for my parents to replace their old Onkyo. The sound was so clean, so crisp, I had to get one for myself. Combined these with Bose home theatre speakers and I couldn't be happier.

Nice feature rich receiver

 

I had decided on going with the Marantz-1504 for the networking capability instead of the Marantz-1403 and it ended up being the best decision. The ability to control the receiver through the Marantz app. has been a huge plus! Very easy to set-up the...

Good sound & nice features, but under powered.

 

Replaced 2007 Yamaha AV reciever. This 1504 AV unit has alot of easy to setup and use features, like connecting to apple products to video and audio to your TV. Down side is the comcast cable box that connect to it is ancient and has problems.

Love the way the new 5.1is a good sounding in the house. I love it. I was even able to put in myself by reading screen as my dad was a election. So it was easy to get the speakers in phase. That is so easy like the rules you had on there screen for...
