Marantz receivers stay slim, NR1603 gets AirPlay

 

Marantz's NR-series receivers are nearly half as tall as competitors, plus the new NR1603 has six HDMI inputs and built-in AirPlay.

Marantz NR1403 & NR1603 AV Receivers Review

 

Aside from being one of the most respected manufacturers of reference-grade hifi components, Marantz is also a big player in the home theater market. They make products at fair price points, for just about every application, with cutting edge features....

Marantz NR1603 review

 

AV receivers are too big, too complicated and too damn old school. That's the unspoken truth for a generation weaned on portable devices and wireless widgets. While home cinephiles will rightfully defend an opposing view, the fact is that for many,...

Tight, dynamic sound quality; versatile media streaming; Spotify and AirPlay compatible

Single HDMI output; no Wi-Fi capability; setup could be smoother

Marantz NR1603

 

Getting enough oomph from your home cinema system normally requires you to store a super-size brick of a receiver underneath your television. Marantz likes to think otherwise, with its slimline set of NR receivers. The Marantz system represents a...

Great design, good sound, lots of connectivity

Android app, can get a bit tight round the back

The Marantz system represents a rounded and complete home cinema solution for anyone who doesn't fancy blowing a fortune on a set-up, but still wants good audio quality.

Marantz NR1603

 

May only be rated at 50 watts in to 8 ohms but this is real watts not some half baked PMPO. Oh! and the icing on the cake, uses way less electric than my previous AV amp.

Honestly none that | can think of at the moment.

Marantz NR1603

 

Good build quality. Produces great sounds and pictures and very easy to set up.

Although very thin I did not realise until I purchased it that the box needs quite a bit of room all round to stop it over heating.

Marantz NR1603

 

Very versatile product offering a wide range of possibilities to enjoy your music, photos and movies. I appreciate much the internet connection which avoids superfluous transfer of files from my PC to my multmedia storage devices. ... and this is a...

Not really a bad point, but so many possiblities to connect all your devices make the setup not that easy ... anyway the user guide is really well done. No phono entry ... And the price... but I'm from the French 'Scotland' ... I find a lot of things...
