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....

"Great Receiver good price"

 

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...

No component in.

Excellent Receiver

 

A good all around audio receiver. Has plenty of options, and is small so it doesn't hog space. The basic built in audio settings are decent, but it is a bit hard to fine tune to get that perfect sound quality.

Lots of options

Difficult to fine tune

Better receivers available for the price

 

I was talked not this by a in store sales rep. DON'T BUY IT!!! I got the Denon x2000 for about the same price. It does a lot more, better on screen setup and better internet/media Center connectivity,.This product has... nothing i needAbout me... Tech...

Nothing

Everything

Just what is needed for my small room

 

This is a simple receiver, almost entirely HDMI based, but there are a lot if HDMI ports to manage everything. The power is discrete, and the separation is fabulous. If you have a 5.1 setup and reasonably efficient speakers, this is all you're going to...

Works great with B&W

 

I bought this AMP to go with my B&W 685's and they truly work great together. It gets more out of my speakers than the Yamaha or Dennon competitors. I wish it had a few more features and hookups but for a 5.1 home theater system used solely for...

A great amp for a reasonable price

not as feature rich as some of its competitors

Better than I expected

 

Fantastic receiver. Runs very cool in an enclosed cabinet. Powers speakers to levels I thought impossible for 50W per channel. Simple setup, though I skipped the Audigy setup due to the speaker being a sound bar. Couple with a Definitive Technology...

Runs quiet, plenty of power, slick features

Nothing at all

Very happy

 

Purchased this to replace a 15 year old receiver and I a very happy with it. We had no need for anything but HDMI inputs so this has been perfect. The sound is great and full sounding. We are very happy with it and it works great with a every other...
