Summary: I followed the instructions to set it up and it was pretty easy. Since it was set up, every thing has sounded and looked great: regular TV, Blu-ray discs, and Netflix. Very happy! I have it set up with Energy's Take Classic 5.1 speakers.
Summary: I use my NR 1603 with Polk tower speakers, rear speakers, center speaker, and subwoofer. I've also got it connected to a router via Cat-5 Ethernet. HDMI inputs include Samsung Smart Blu-ray player, cable box, and a desktop PC. Output via HDMI is to a Samsung Smart TV.
Summary: Great brand, and the size spec really solved a problem for me so I was happy to spring for it. Issues at the outset with the tuner section and 2-way hdmi. I'd read about this but figured they'd been fixed.
Summary: Bought this model on closeout, the new 1604 adds 4k upscaling and another HDMI, which weren't worth the price increase to me. The amp sounds great, dont let the "50W" power output fool you, it is plenty for my home theater system.
Summary: Great receiver, but it could have more power. This receiver doe's everything I want it to do. I like the small profile, doesn't take up a lot of space. Only 50 watts per channel, could be 70 or 80 watts, but seems to have enough for my needs!
Summary: Item worked for about an hour....when I tried to turn it back on no picture no sound... worked great for about an hour!!! sent it back!! Amazon was great!! got my money back long before they got the item back!! which was cool... I was shopping on amazon before that!! GOT NEW SPEAKERS !!
Summary: I like product. I did not receive any instructions how to install or operate. No CD in package. Description of product said CD included. I had to contact Marantz for directions. I need CD manual
