Marantz 1504

Mike, Crutchfield
10 March 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

NR1504

TerryA, Crutchfield
10 March 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
26 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

Absolutely a Quality Receiver

Gene R, Crutchfield
18 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
7 February 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
7 February 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

Clean, basic system loaded with features

Jim, Crutchfield
7 February 2014
  • 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.
