Great AVR

mikeh, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • 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.

Tremendous receiver

CRP Ag, Amazon

  • Summary: This receiver is truly amazing. It was incredibly easy to hook up. Literally just a few moments after opening the box, I had it connected to my system. I have loved the ongoing utility and performance of this unit. It has 6 HDMI ports, SIX!

Solid, well built, flexible home theater receiver at an attractive price

EinAK, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: Purchased the NR1603 three years ago to replace an eight year old Onkyo receiver that didn't support HDMI. Set up was plug and play, very easy, took about 90 minutes. It is being used to drive a small Energy 5.1 set of surround speakers with sub-woofer. Perfect for our small TV room.

For single room installations this is hard to beat

MGIxian, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: Pros: Love the low profile - after years of giant A/V boxes this is a refreshing change that looks great and more importantly frees up some much needed room in my cabinet. It's also not quite as deep as my old Onkyo. It sounds great.
