Marantz has hit a home run with the Slim Line home theater systems and I highly recommend this product.

Solarus Hydrolius "Sun Juan", Amazon

  • Summary: I have been playing with stereo equipment since the early 70's but it has been about 20 years since I purchased a Kenwood system that still works to this day but would not fit into the new home theater cabinet my wife and I recently purchased so I went in search of a low profile system and...

Great AVR

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

Couldn't be more pleased

  • 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.

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.

Amazing sound in a room with challenging acoustics

PT Cruiser, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: This Marantz NR1603 A/V receiver makes movies and music sound better in our great room than I ever thought possible. We have a family room/kitchen/breakfast nook set up that is an acoustical nightmare.

Great Receiver

Kevin Frisco, Amazon

  • Summary: I had a Harmon Kardon receiver for several years and loved it, then upgraded to the AVR1610. I had issues with the HDMI switching and couldn't figure it out (I'm pretty tech savvy), so contacted the support desk.

Marantz moves into the forefront of providing quality high-end audio products

Desiree, Amazon

  • Summary: Let me first say, that I have had a nightmare with receivers particularly 2 Onyko's which were good sound-wise but simply wouldn't switch anything through the HDMI. This Marantz changes everything, from the moment I got this I can tell the difference in class.

Perfect for my needs

R. Waldon, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this receiver on 14-Oct-2012. I did a couple of days of research before finally making this purchase. I was mainly focused on this Marantz, the Denon In-Command AVR-2113CI, and the Yamaha Aventage RX-A720. I honestly don't think any of them would have been a bad choice.
