Marantz NR1403

 

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....

Just got it out and set it up. Sounds great. I had an Onkyo sr605 before, and it didn't have 3D passthrough. the onkyo sounded great, but this sounds better. The sound feels more full, fills the room better. This might be because it did a better job of...

Well made product. Exceeds expectations.

 

I love this little receiver. I had a space requirement for the new media stand I bought and needed to find an A/V receiver that did not exceed 6" in height. This slimline receiver greatly outperforms the Sony unit it replaced. Specifically I noticed...

Good basic receiver for a small room.

 

Not enough power for a medium size room. Other than lack of power, this is a good receiver with a lot of extras. It is slightly outdated and not 4K.
