Great product if you want good style and can live with tech that is a couple years old

Summary: So far so good. I decided to replace a good Sony receiver that was about 9 years old and had no HDMI connections. Saw the good reviews on CNET for this Marantz and decided to buy when the price dropped. It was simple to set up, and sounds really good.
Summary: Owned and loved my Marantz 2220 receiver for about 40 years now. Purchased other receivers during that time span including 2 Pioneers, Sansui and a Kenwood. The 2220 was always re-purposed for other duties but ended up coming back into the man cave about 4 years ago and is still used a lot.
Summary: I have had several months to enjoy this product and I do not have anything negative to say. The slim design fits in my Chinese Rosewood TV cabinet and functions along with my Samsung SmartTV UN65H6350 perfectly.
Summary: Great "little" receiver. I first looked to purchase a new receiver because of a confined space I had in my entertainment center above the TV, very nice build in area in the house we bought but not much space/ventilation for the receiver and my HK was getting hot!
Summary: This is a great receiver for the money. I really wanted a high end two channel stereo amplifier but my wife wanted a new surround system for her movies. The Marantz unit was a great compromise.
Summary: Couldn't be happier with this AVR. I have the Energy Take Classic 5-pack and Energy EW-100 sub for speakers, and they have come alive with the NR-1403. Audyssey setup was very good with only a minor crossover tweak needed for my surround speakers.
Summary: Very impressed! Awesome receiver. First time with Marantz. Bought this receiver as a replacement of an Onkyo to hook up with my Mirage speakers + Polk Pro Sub. I can say the Marantz performs way, way better than the Onkyo. Marantz has an expectacular sound clarity + richness.
Summary: I purchased this for a mid-size home theater room. Don't the the 50watt rating scare you away from buying this unit. It has plenty of power for what we need and has great sound in a 5.1 system. If you're looking for a receiver without all the frills of internet, airplay, etc.
