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...

Good sound, easy set up.

 

I purchased this unit as it received great reviews PLUS it was short enough to fit into my stand. I had my eyes on a Sony which had more options but was over twice as high. The unit doesn't have blue tooth - can purchase for extra - which I don't need...

easy setup & nice sleek design

 

we went to BB after our receiver went to the electronics store in the sky. we decided to go with a slimline model because part of the previous units death was attributed to overheating due to being in too tight quarters. We spent more time picking out...

So far so good.

 

I bought this AV receiver to replace a Pioneer Elite that was dropping signal. I found a review online at cnet that had this as number 3 for the best AV receivers that you can get for your money. I didn't need anything like phone connectivity and...

Good quality and price

 

Perfect receiver for our equipment. Reasonable price.

Consumer review by:

A good basic receiver choice.

 

The receiver replaced a higher priced Onkya unit that was struck by lightning. The receiver gives great sound on all levels and modes of play; it does fall short of inputs that I had been used to, but all in all it handles the tasks that we put it...

Performs as expected

 

I've had the receiver for a few weeks now and it performs well. Simple no frills design but gets the job done with no complaints from me.

Great for a medium-sized room

 

My TV room is nothing huge, a standard California room (about 14'x14'). For a room of this size, this amp is way more than enough. It has great, clean sound and all my movies and video games have a wonderful, rich sound.
