Awesome

Mike B, Crutchfield
18 May 2014
  • Summary: I baptized this thing. Klipsch RF-7II front channels, RB-61 II surround channels. Anytime your speakers are bigger than your skull, you must take the following path. Setup>audio>Audyssey>dynamic volume ( turn it off) That was after a call to Crutchfield Customer Support, (I'm blown away by service...
  • Pros: Plays WAV from USB drives. Plenty of power. Display is reasonably dim. File systems move at a reasonable pace, and as fast as I can push the button when folders are open.
  • Cons: Dynamic volume. Turn it off.

NR1504

TerryA, Crutchfield
18 February 2014
  • 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

Solid product, easy setup, satisfied customer

fucema, Crutchfield
7 February 2014
  • Summary: Easy to unbox and setup. The slim profile is excellent. Sound quality is more than adequate on my less than 5.1 system. I use this Marantz with 2 front speakers, a center channel, and a subwoofer. The on screen display is nice and clean and doesn't get in the way. Setup was painfree.
  • Pros: Slim design

Marantz 1504

Mike, Crutchfield
7 February 2014
  • Summary: First let me say that I never review anything . I have received good service from online retailers and never said a word. I had an 18 year old Marantz that died . I spent several weeks researching receivers. I seldom watch movies and listen mostly to music. I have pretty inadequate speakers .
  • Pros: Easy to set up
  • Cons: Non

Absolutely a Quality Receiver

Gene R, Crutchfield
7 February 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.
  • 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 unreada...
  • 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

Lorne, Crutchfield
22 January 2014
  • Summary: This unit was recommended to me by a friend. It is everything I expected in a new unit. It has a super easy user interface to set it up. I mean, I don't think it can get any easier. It sounds awesome.
  • Pros: Long warranty. I believe it is a 3 year warranty. You don't see that much anymore, and if it was built cheaply it would have the typical 90 day to 6 month nonsense.
  • Cons: I haven't found any yet, unless it came with a Logitech One touch so I could come back to 1 remote unit.

Marantz NR1504 very good deal

Sparky, Crutchfield
14 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.
  • 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
