Marantz NR1504 NR1604 Slim AV Receivers Preview

 

The Marantz NR1504 and NR1604 don't sacrifice audio quality, features, and style just because they have have a low profile design.

Good sound & nice features, but under powered.

 

Replaced 2007 Yamaha AV reciever. This 1504 AV unit has alot of easy to setup and use features, like connecting to apple products to video and audio to your TV. Down side is the comcast cable box that connect to it is ancient and has problems.
