Marantz NR1602


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.
