Marantz NR1605 review - exclusive

Marantz NR1605 review

 

There is a prevailing theory that all home theater receivers sound the same. Sometimes that theory holds water, but other times it's pretty easy to show the disparities.

The Marantz NR1605 stands slimmer and looks sleeker than typical boxy AV receivers. It packs a host of must-have features, including eight HDMI inputs, 4K Ultra HD 60Hz pass-through, built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Airplay, and front-panel USB. Its sound...

This receiver's 50 watts per channel may lack muscle for more power-hungry buyers.

The slim, compact Marantz NR1605 provides excellent sound quality and thoroughly up-to-date features, making it one of our favorites for the price.

Nothing but trouble

 

Receiver would freeze at random. I had to unplug it and plug it back in for it to work. Next, HDMI 1 crapped out. No signal. Switched to HDMI 2 and all was well for a month or so. Now video is jittery. When I bypass the 1605 it woks fine from the...

Great buy, saved on open box speakers, so was able to get a better quality receiver. Low Profile fits perfectly in our entertainment center

Just as good as the 1300 dollar Marantz

 

I owned three different Marantzs in the past 6 weeks. I wanted to see if the 700 dollar one was any better than the 1000 dollar or the 1300 dollar (5009, 6009). For my use, the 700W was perfect and the others were just wasted money

Awesome receiver for my Bose speakers

 

This receiver is super awesome in my bedroom.. It was easy to setup and since I have limited space it was the perfect size compared to the other bulky types. Bluetooth sometimes cuts in and out but it's still awesome .
