Marantz NR-1603 Slim Line AV Receiver
Marantz NR1603 - slimline elegance
This is the perfect model for customers that don’t have the space for a traditional AV receiver but equally don’t want to compromise on performance or specification.
At approximately half the size of a typical unit the packs the same punch as its bigger brothers, delivering ear-cracking seven channel surround sound from its 7x 50W rms output. It also boasts networking facilities for audio streaming, Internet radio, AirPlay from your iPhone, iPad or iPod, as well as incorporating an iPod-digital-compatible USB input and an M-DAX2 to make the very most of sound quality from compressed audio.
On the video side, the six HDMI inputs, with one located on the front, all support 3D video and ARC (Audio Return Channel) from ARC-compatible TV sets, while all analogue video signals are converted to HDMI level including I/P conversion and scaling up to 1080p.
Set-up is easy - with the help of the advanced GUI, Setup Assistant, Audyssey MultEQ and Microphone – so there is no need to study the manual, just follow the on-screen instructions. It all adds up to easy-to-use slim-line elegance with a powerful punch. What more could you ask for?
