We purchased the NR1601 from Best Buy as part of a home theater
13 September 2014
Summary: We purchased the NR1601 from Best Buy as part of a home theater. It lasted just long enough to go out of the three year warranty before it died. Given Marantz's reputation for a quality product,, this was a major disappointment.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
