Marantz NR1506 review:

 

Think of any consumer technology product in your home, and then envision its physical transformation over the past 10 or 15 years. Cell phones went from little flip models to spacious handheld touchscreen slabs; laptops went from heavy beasts to wispy...

The Marantz NR1506 offers great sound for both movies and music. Up-to-date features including the latest HDMI 2.0a standard plus Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Excellent design and compact frame will fit inside most AV furniture

Marantz NR1506 offers 5.1 surround (not 7.1) with just 50 watts per channel, so it can't offer the same full-volume oomph as beefier designs. The video interface is outdated.

The Marantz NR1506 AV receiver offers a winning combination of full-featured streaming audio and fine sound quality in a sleek, low-profile package.

Marantz NR 1506 Review

 

The Marantz NR1506 is an average AV receiver with only five channels of audio and a weak amplifier compared to other receivers in this price range. However, the slim design and the many connectivity options, both wireless and legacy ports, are an...

It has AirPlay and DLNA, so you can easily send audio to it over Wi-Fi from any Apple or Android device.

The amplifier is weak.

The Marantz NR1506 isn't loaded with ports or features, but it is a solidly built basic receiver.

Couldn't ask for more.

 

This is an excellent av receiver. Apple airplay, Spotify, and 4K. Sound quality is fantastic. With enough HDMI ports to satisfy everyone, extremely easy to set up and use I couldn't fault this machine if I tried.

easy to set up , ease of use includes a well thought out remote.

Great sound

 

Decided to move away from a soundbar and sub towards a 5.1 home theatre. Currently running two front speakers and the difference compared to the soundbar is huge. Much clearer, sharper sounds and its easier to hear movement between the channels....

easy to use , great sound

Brilliant AV amp

 

I was looking for a new av amp to replace an old amp with limited connectivity, Sean, in the Brighton store explained how this Marantz amp would connect to my elderly (but perfectly good) Sony lcd tv, and he answered all my 'daft and middle aged'...

Great Compact AV Receiver

 

I chose the NR1506 because I wanted a smaller form factor receiver with plenty of features. I didn't need 7 channels, multi room or atmos but wanted the networking features such as AirPlay and Bluetooth. Really pleased with the sound quality, it's a...

Great smaller form factor receiver

 

i bought this box to replace my ancient and very large Onkyo receiver bought about 10 years ago. The Marantz box does the job very well all the features work well not much else to say really..
