Audyssey calibration is built into the receiver to help you tailor the sound of the receiver and connected speakers to your listening environment; a setup microphone is included.

Internet connectivity allows you to access Internet streaming services, such as Pandora and Spotify.
A slim receiver packed with features
The Marantz NR1504 is sized just right to fit comfortably on just about any bookshelf or TV stand. This full-featured model measures only half the height of many surround sound receivers, yet it boasts all the clean power you need to drive five speakers, and enough inputs to connect a full complement of A/V sources. Plus, the ‘1504 sports built-in Apple AirPlay® and a host of online entertainment options.
Convenient iTunes playback with AirPlay
Apple’s easy-to-use AirPlay technology lets you access your favorite music from your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®, or from your iTunes library on your computer. You’ll be able to control playback and see music information — including album art, track titles, and artist info — on your compatible Apple device, or on your TV. AirPlay requires a wireless home network and a wired connection between the receiver and the network.
Never-ending music choices via the Internet
Your listening options aren’t limited to the songs in your music library, either. The NR1504 lets you choose from thousands of free Internet radio stations or explore online subscription services like SiriusXM, Pandora, and Spotify. This receiver even streams photos from your PC or online from Flickr, so you can view your favorite photos on your HDTV’s large screen.
Remote possibilities for your smartphone
Download a free app, and your iOS or Android™ device becomes a convenient Wi-Fi remote. You’ll enjoy the intuitive, easy-to-read interface — plus that’s one remote that’s not likely to get lost in the sofa cushions.
Easy switching for six HD components
Blu-ray players, video game consoles, and HD satellite, cable and DVR boxes all go well with the NR1504. HDMI switching lets you send all your high-def digital video sources through a single connection to your TV, making hookup a breeze. Marantz takes the extra step of carefully isolating this unit’s internal audio and video circuit boards. This ensures ultra-high signal purity for rich, enveloping surround sound with all your movies, music, T
V shows, and video games. And cutting edge decoding delivers the master-quality sound that comes with most of today’s Blu-ray discs.
Quick and easy setup and control
The Marantz NR1504 has an on-board setup assistant to help you make all the right connections for your system. The supplied setup microphone allows this receiver to analyze sound from different listening positions, while you sit back as the receiver automatically adjusts level, equalization, and delay settings for each of your speakers. The result is accurate response across a wide listening area instead of just a single “sweet spot,” so everyone in the room can enjoy precisely balanced home theater sound.
