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.
Summary: Remote control is very intuitive provides enough power to all of my polk speakers. plenty of ports to support all of my hdmi devices. Apple air plays flawlessly. Clear sound. Small form factor.
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.
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 .
Summary: After my Denon AVR stopped working, I needed another amp I could use with my 6 channel system. I am so happy I made the decision to go with the NR1504. The built-in AirPlay and network functionality is icing on the cake.
Pros: Network capabilities (remote app, web interface, airplay) Small formfactor Great sound
Summary: This system runs my 5.1 small size Infinity speaker system, a 42" Panasonic plasma, Dish DVR and Samsung smart DVD player with ease in amedium size family room. The Marantz replaces a large bulky and hot running Onkyo TX-NR708 system that while seemingly more powerful and with more options did not...
Pros: Small foot print, attractive design, simple setup, great sound, cool running, seamless switching between video choices via HDMI, decent OSD for on screen programming.
Cons: *Would be nice to have a panel light "dim" mode, currently offers On, Off or Auto. *Would be nice to have the manual explain what the features actually do as opposed to what the features are.
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.
Summary: From the moment you take the 1504 out of the box you know this is a serious machine. Once the manual is reviewed, set up is easy. Audyssey speaker alignment for my listening room was perfect. The internet radio is easy to navigate.
Pros: Outstanding build quality, great sound, ease of use
Cons: Flimsy remote, inability to serve as a foundation for a more powerful system,
Summary: I needed this for it's low profile to fit in a cabinet. I've had it for about 3 weeks now with no complaints. I'm not a true audiophile, but it's perfect for my needs in a mid-sized living room: great sound for movies and music and plenty of power! Setup was very easy with plenty of HDMI inputs.
Pros: Low profile Plenty of HDMI inputs Easy setup
