Couldn't be more pleased

SimFanatic, Amazon
18 August 2014
  • 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. I also have an iPad connected for playing music/radio when the PC is not running. I actually started out looking at larger receivers, but space is an issue; so, I opted for this unit.

Great AVR

mikeh, Amazon

  • 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. Other manufacturers are clever with their power ratings, so numbers are commonly misleading. I have read alot of reviews regarding HDMI issues, specifically handshake issues. I was very nervous of that when I got this.

Great Receiver

Kevin Frisco, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • 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. Unfortunately the help desk had been outsourced to another country and I wasn't able to get the answers I needed, so I returned the receiver. I then opted for the 1603. It was last year's model so got a pretty good deal on it.

For single room installations this is hard to beat

MGIxian, Amazon
23 November 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. Don't let the "low" wattage fool you, this thing can still pump out some serious volume, quality over quantity. It's flexible - 6 HDMI ports, including a very handy one on the front - wish more A/V receivers would do this.

Great reciver

jl hodges, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great receiver perfect fit for my entertainment center had limited space (less than 6”) and with this being just over 4” it was just what I needed. Have had it a little over a month now and no issues works great perfect sound in my small living room probably too much for the small room it’s in.

Excellent receiver

Charles Tsen "cuppytsen", Amazon

  • Summary: Love it. This receiver does everything I wanted it to do and much more. The interface is simple and clear and easy to operate. Setup is a cinch--just plug in the HDMI cable in the back and you are ready to go. Some might think 50 watts of power isn't good enough, but for my small attack it's plenty of power.

Excellent

Xavier Hernandez, Amazon
22 September 2013
  • Summary: I enjoyed this product, no surprises, does what the ads said about it, however I have not tested the zone 2 feature (which I plan to use to connect the speakers in the patio) The setup menu is very clear and has also a nice graphic interface, this helped a lot in configuring the speakers. Works very well with my Logitech One remote. The size of the equipment Is a little bit deeper than I thought but did fit in the space of my cabinet. So far a very good equipment.

Small size, big sound

D. Barron, Amazon

  • Summary: Great receiver. Compared to the old Panasonic receiver that died, this one improved our home theater experience immensely. I recommend it for small a/v cabinets.
