Expert Review

22 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Think setting up a surround system is hard? OK, so we’ve done it before just a few times, but we were up and running in 5.1 here in well under 20 minutes, though we made a few tweaks later via the easy-to-use manual speaker-level adjustments.

Marantz NR1602 review

Home Cinema Choice
15 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Whether through luck or design, Marantz has created something rather special with the NR1602. Driven by a desire to innovate within the often stultifying constraints of hardcore AV, the company has taken the traditional hefty AVR form factor and chopped it in half.
  • Pros: Rich, melodious character; AirPlay and internet radio; good audio file compatibility; slick design
  • Cons: Audyssey AutoEQ not always accurate; not a muscle amp

NR 1602

14 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Dass der Marantz NR 1602 aufgrund seiner begrenzten Mehrkanalleistung Punkte liegen lässt, wird das Zielpublikum verkraften. Denn für normal große Wohnzimmer reicht es allemal und die flexible Klangreglung und die moderne Multimedia-Ausstattung des Raumsparers begeistert.

Marantz NR-1602

30 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Sur le terrain, le Marantz NR‑1602 est un amplificateur audio‑vidéo qui s'acquitte de ses nombreux rôles avec une bonne volonté évidente, grâce à une ergonomie étudiée, même si l’accès aux listes de lecture d’un disque dur Nas laisse un peu à désirer en l’absence de tout clavier alphanumérique.
  • Pros: Passerelle audio UPnP ( DLNA ), Interface utilisateur ( OSD ) conviviale, Upscaling 1 080p et désentrelacement efficace
  • Cons: Puissance un peu juste avec certaines enceintes en mode multicanal
