The Best Receiver Out There

CarolD, Amazon
18 December 2011
  • Summary: This has to be the best receiver out there. The sound is crystal clear - from the low notes to the formerly inaudible high notes. The listener can hear and appreciate all of the independent parts of a musical piece or video sound track. My husband was delighted to recieve this product for his birthday and so is the rest of the family. Just the best!!

Excellent

  • Summary: I purchase this receiver for my bedroom, the quality of the sound is very good, and it is powerful even it had 50 watt. I have speakers JBL CS6100 and Blu ray Sony BDP S-470. The experience with the blu Ray movie "Legend" was amazing, it sounds really clear and deep. Its a great receiver.

  • Summary: I purchased this unit after a long search for a new audio/video receiver that would complement my built in speaker system. Although I have been a Marantz user since the early '70s, I tried to not be biased in this selection. The decision to purchase the Marantz over all others was based upon Marantz reputation of quality, the number of inputs should I decide to expand my overall surround system from 5.1, the number of HDMI ports, connections for all sorts of devices,...

  • Summary: I like this receiver because it sounds very good. I am using mirage nanostat speakers.easy to use once it is set up. personally i found the instructions to be adequate.Ipod sound is a little rough, but could be the source.Reciever communicates well with my sony bluray and lg tv. I like the auto feature that selects the correct surround setting and that when i turn off the tv it turns off the receiver and blue ray player as well.

Great once it is set up

Not A Picky Person, Amazon
15 May 2011
  • Summary: Here it is in 2011 and the process to configure this unit (Marantz NR1601 Audio Video Receiver) is something out of the 80's. I know I can't expect an iPad on the screen, but the on-screen setup is painful. You get options, but no explanation of what the options mean (i.e. "Select Small or Large Speaker" What does that mean? Hint: It does not refer to physical size!) And the manual is fine if you designed the unit, but impossible otherwise.

Marantz NR1601

Jon N, Amazon
14 April 2011
  • Summary: I was looking for an A/V receiver with a slim form factor for use in an apartment. On researching the market, the only options I found that suited my need for decent quality in a small package were the Marantz and the Sherwood R904 Netbox. I initially ordered the Sherwood and was generally happy with the unit, though I couldn't get it to sound right in my living room as there is no manual equalizer function that allows you to boost / attenuate certain frequencies.

Review for Marantz NR1601

Kevin, Amazon
3 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this receiver to replace my Onkyo TX-SR674 which was crammed into my TV stand. It must have gotten too hot and the HDMI inputs stopped working properly. Not only does the small form factor of the Marantz fit into the stand much better, but it also sounds better. I'm using the same Onkyo speaker set as before. The Marantz was easy to setup and if I had to complain about anything it would be the fact it only has 4 HDMI inputs.

GREAT!

  • Summary: I had several brands of Receivers (technics, yamaha, Cambridge and pioneer elite), I have to say that this little device has a sound quality that surprised me completely. It sounds clear, smooth with all the details, it was what I wanted, I think I found the brand that fills my expectations.

What a great receiver!

Joseph J. Calamita "jcalamita", Amazon
13 March 2011
  • Summary: Bought this open box and I absolutely love it. The sound is fantastic and has a much smaller height than the typical receiver. Major surround settings and supports a ton of different setup options. Setup was easy and drive my canton small home theater speakers with ease. Had some difficulties with sony 3d bluray and PS3. Had really bad flickering.

Worth It

ProductDesigner "Dzine", Amazon
17 February 2011
  • Summary: Great sound, small form factor. Of course, the sound will depend on your speakers. I have small Cambridge Soundworks Ensemble 2 which come with a subwoofer and a center B&W and two small bookshelf B&W speakers. The only downside to this receiver is the manual that comes with it. Does not appear to have been written very well so it means you'll be doing a fair bit of guessing to fill in blanks and get the receiver to do all that it can.
