The NR1601 Is the New Marantz Slimline Receiver Print E-mail
Thursday, 22 July 2010
ImageWe all want the best when it comes to our home theater components, but sometimes practicality gets in the way.   Maybe you've got an AV rack in your main viewing room, but when it comes to more limited spaces, smaller components can really help out. The NR1601 from Marantz is the latest in the slimline…   line.  It's just over four inches high and 13 inches deep making it half the size of a typical AVR, and the exact same size as a Marantz Blu-ray player.  That kind of space economy can really pay off if you're hurting for room.

It's not the most feature packed receiver on the market.  The 1601 sports four HDMI 1.4 inputs and front panel USB connectivity.  It handles Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio as you might expect and it's got a nice audio tool in Audyssey's Audio Calbration. You can pick up the NR1601 later this month for $599.  It replaces the NR1501, which gets its price dropped down to $399.
