We find out why Marantz?s sublime slim receiver deserves plenty of AirPlay?

Refined and reasonably powerful sound quality ; Stylish slimline design ; AirPlay support and smooth music streaming

No Wi-Fi support or video scaling ; Can get more features for your money elsewhere ; Remote a little too busy

We?re really impressed by the NR1602. Not only is it teeming with features, including DLNA streaming, internet radio, AirPlay and 3D support, but its slimline design is also gorgeous and sound quality is sublime, despite its low-sounding power rating.

Marantz has brought some much-needed flair to the humble AV receiver with the slim-line NR1602. Network-savvy and offering siren-sweet sound, this beauty doesn't miss a beat.

Seductive, slim appearance ; Gorgeous stereo and multi-channel sound ; Peerless media-streaming support ; AirPlay support ; Great networking capability

Audyssey calibration is slightly cumbersome ; Not as booming as its peers

The Marantz NR1602 is an outstanding AV receiver. Not only is it slimmer and prettier than the competition, it's also a gorgeous performer. An audiophile lineage is evidenced in its two-channel performance, yet it's fast and fun with movies. It's also...

Marantz NR1602 AV receiver with AirPlay

 

Review With the NR1602, Marantz has nuked the traditional AV receiver. The old template of massive amplification is out. In its place is an emphasis on networking prowess and design. The result is arguably the most forward-thinking receiver we'll see...

Now AV receivers are generally to be approached with some trepidation. With the arrival of home networking and internet radio, they are no longer merely amplifiers+radio, which is the traditional definition of a receiver

A wealth of digital sources ; Seven good amp channels ; Great price ; Negative ; Needs improved control ; Amps: 7 x 50W (8 ohm, 20-20kHz, 0.08% 2-channel driven) ; Radio: AM, FM, internet radio (vTuner), Last.FM ; Inputs: 4 x HDMI 1.4a, 2 x component...

Marantz has its own dedicated Network Audio Player in the $1499 NA7004 — we reviewed it in our biannual review-fest, Best Buys Home Theatre, and you can read that full review at AVHub.com.au. But many of the NA7004’s abilities have been included in the...

Excellent price from Vanns. I bought this unit primarily because it is very slim with its height being only a little over 4. This allowed me to place this in an area where my regular full height receiver would not fit. I am very happy with its...

I had an older SONY AV receiver that lost its right front channel. Rather than have it repaired, I decided to upgrade the 7 year old receiver to a new one that could connect to my network, get firmware updates over the internet and add multiple HDMI...
