Absolutely a Quality Receiver

Gene R, Crutchfield
22 January 2014
  • Summary: Looks good and sounds great! Basic set-up was easy, and after Audessy tuning the sound quality is full and rich (to my non-audiophile ears). I wanted this unit mainly for stereo music, and it lives up to the Marantz reputation. I am quite pleased with the quality of music from the tuner, iPod, mp3s on a thumb drive, and Pandora, but especially impressed with cable TV - with two front Polk speakers, a sub, and a center speaker the audio is truly amazing to me - I was...
  • Pros: - Overall quality feel of the device and great sound from all sources - Pretty good user's manual - Excellent remote! Well laid out and very functional - function labels are even readable for old folk like me - Manual source selection with a large knob, rather than small push buttons with unreadable labels - Audessey - made it simple to get high quality sound - my manual tinkering couldn't really improve on the Audessey settings (except the Dynamic Volume setting as n...
  • Cons: - Wired-only ethernet connection - I added a network bridge to enable a wireless connection - Single USB port on the front - would have liked to see one on the back also to leave iPOD plugged in without seeing the cable snaking around to the front

Marantz NR1504 very good deal

Sparky, Crutchfield
22 January 2014
  • Summary: I have, until now always owned Onkyo amps but have found them to be too bulky and heavy for average entertainment centers. I opted to go with something light and more compact this time around and was pleasantly surprised. I have to admit this is a very nice compact unit and delivers everything I was looking for in the way of an amp. Would definitely recommend!
  • Pros: light weight, low profile, big sound and switches the HDMI sources without the amp being powered on which is rare to find.
  • Cons: would be nice to be able to stream video as well

Best Ever

Anonymous, Crutchfield

  • Summary: Everything Just Works! Was worried that 50 watts per channel was not enough but could not tell between the NR 1504 and NR5007 receivers. Awesome. I would recommend this and Crutchfield always!
  • Pros: Network easy to configure. Size.
  • Cons: none

NR1504

TerryA, Crutchfield
17 July 2013
  • Summary: Great sounding receiver. I have some older speakers for now, so I found setting them up manually was better. My room is 15 x 18. The only difficultly I had was that I did not have the volume high enough in the beginning. You need it at least around 40 - 50 to hear anything.
  • Pros: My entertainment center only had about 5 1/2 " space for a receiver, so this fit great. Easy set-up.
  • Cons: None

Low profile but classy

CTrindall, Crutchfield
26 June 2013
  • Summary: My top reason for choosing this model is the size (I never understood why these units had to be 6 to 10 inches tall) but I didn't want to compromise too much on features and definitely not at all on quality. I am glad it proved to really exceed my expectations. Sounds great with 3 channels and a sub. Wasn't looking for high volume levels, but it gets plenty loud enough to me.
  • Pros: Easy to use (I haven't opened the manual yet). Network features are nice to have (connected to SiriusXM and my Media Server (using my NAS)). I also like that you can operate the TV and Cable box with the receiver off (members of my family seem to have trouble operating more than 2 electronic devices at one time).
  • Cons: None.
