Has a problem is ALAC files delivered via DLNA.

S. Lederer "M. Lederer", Amazon
26 May 2014
  • Summary: Airplay is a gem, but ALAC encoded files delivered via PMS (Playstation Media Sever) do not play. Needed to configure PMS to transcode to ALAC files. I contacted Marantz and they said they don't support any specific DLNA servers and they don't know what the Japanese engineers use to test with.

Love the form factor - just wish that I liked Audyssey better

Adam Wood, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: I had the privilege to also audition the Marantz NR1504 , and I wrote a pretty long review for it. The two models share the same chassis (which is an outstanding form factor) and a lot of the same features, and my impressions of several things are the same, so I'll try to be more concise and focus...

Solid choice for smaller systems or high efficiency speakers

TobycW, Amazon

  • Summary: Marantz has long been known to produce excellent quality audio gear at reasonable prices. Same for Denon. The two merged in 2002 and their product offerings often share technologies--probably a good thing. This receiver is relatively low power at 50W into 8Ohms.

First one bad out of box. Second one I like.

  • Summary: The first one ordered was bad out of box, no power. The Amazon return/refund process was a hassle but in the end Amazon returned all my out of pocket expenses. Must add the Amazon rep I had was world class and her follow up a WOW experience. The second NR1604 receiver orderded is good.

All about the size

Schwartz, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: In my mind the whole draw of this line of receiver is the size of the unit. It is just a little thicker than your average game console. The front corners are rounded back and they added round silver feet to the bottom of the unit that are slightly smaller than a beer can in circumference.

A Great Product

W. Koch, Amazon
19 August 2013
  • Summary: I'm not really an audiophile. I bought this for the large number of HDMI ports, smaller vertical size and good reviews. It was easy to set up and the onscreen configuration was straight forward.

Annoying Drawbacks But Still An Exceptional A/V Receiver. Marantz NR1604: A Critical Review.

Andre Lawrence, Amazon
13 August 2013
  • Summary: What a beautiful system. Absolutely Elegant in form and performance, however, for some unknown reason lack standard features that even budget brands have. *** The 1604 vs. the 1504 *** The NR1604 is identical to the NR1504 in performance with the notable exception that it has: + 7.1 Channels +...

Sony vs Yamaha vs marantz... Close but the nod goes to sony

Mahlers2nd, Amazon
23 July 2013
  • Summary: Tonight I am presented with the ultmiate first world problem -- trying to rank 3 state-of-the-art AV Receivers. I already reviewed and compared the Sony to the Yamaha and it really wasn't close either in terms of sound or useability -- Sony was far better -- but then again, the Yamaha I reviewed was...

Actually reviewing NR1605

Mr B., Amazon
30 January 2015
  • Summary: Amazingly my NR1604 was damaged at the suppliers, they sent away for a replacement and was provided an NR1605 instead. That's service. The product is excellent, matches my Boston audio speakers well and now provides a much more balanced and measured audio experience.

good piece of equipment

IvSa, Amazon
29 April 2014
  • Summary: Works as advertised. Great sound quality. But now the drawback: This applies not only to the Marantz 1604 but most electronic devices. Therefore still 4 stars for Marantz. From the male engineer perspective, this equipment is relative easy to set up and does a wonderfull job.
