Although this product had a great price point

c, Amazon
21 November 2014
  • Summary: I purchase this item 4 yrs ago then it died. Still powers up and i can go through all the programs but now there is no sound. Although this product had a great price point, I got this item because of the Marantz quality. I expected a little more shelf life than 4 years.

This thing is AWESOME!!!

  • Summary: This thing blows away my old Pioneer VSX-something at 100W per channel. It comes ready for a 7.1 setup. If you have a 5.1 which I do, it won't do an autocalibration without the mid side speakers (I hooked my rear to the actual rear channels). I tell you, don't let the wattage fool you.

For the price, simply the best sounding receiver

W. Schmidt, Amazon
21 October 2013
  • Summary: I just upgraded my home theater system from a five year old HTIB. I picked up Orb Audio speakers (excellent little speakers, great price) and also the Marantz NR-1501. I tried out three receivers before settling on the NR-1501. I first looked at the Denon 1910.

Fantastic Sounding Receiver for the Price

S. Crow, Amazon
21 October 2013
  • Summary: Purchased this receiver after spending a considerable amount of time putting together a home theatre system. Listened many receivers and actually purchased a Harman Kardon 255 from Amazon. For the price the Marantz NR 1501 blew all of these away - it has a great feature set and works very reliably.

  • Summary: Very quirky machine which died within three years. Took it to repair place who told me they had 3 others just like it that had died of same cause (video board failure). I will not buy another Marantz product ever.

Died after just 2 years...

michael p. patrick, Amazon
9 March 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this product based off of extended research and the brand name Marantz. After just two years of use this product just stopped working. I used this system simply to power my home theater system. It was never over used nor used beyond its limitations.

Great AV receiver with some small problems

Robert H. Brown, Amazon
13 October 2011
  • Summary: I've had this receiver for a few weeks now and it works quite well, except for one annoying problem. I have a Directv DVR hooked to it (among other things), and I routinely fast forward and rewind through programs, mostly to avoid commercials or to replay a segment of a news program.

Unit stopped working after one month

Carl, Amazon
25 July 2011
  • Summary: I ordered this receiver about a month ago, and it was mostly functional, but last night, it would not detect any of the sources plugged into it. Today, video is somewhat working again, but is frequently dropping, and audio will work only for a few seconds at a time.
