Product Description

Marantz NR1608 7.2 Channel Ultra-Slim A/V Receiver

A thrilling high-quality AV receiver occupying minimal space: that’s the Marantz NR1608. High current discrete power amplifiers on all 7 channels deliver astonishing power and clarity, and it delivers immersive 3D surround sound thanks to both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X decoders, yet at just a little more than 3 inches tall it’s slim enough to slip into any TV cabinet. It’s fully compatible with the latest HDMI and HDCP 2.2 specifications on all 8 HDMI inputs, and will pass all the latest video formats – 4K 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, BT.2020, HDR and Dolby Vision – from Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, games consoles and streamed/download 4K Ultra HD content to an Ultra HD TV or projector. For future HDR broadcast content, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) pass-through will also be supported via a firmware update. Bluetooth and AirPlay can stream music directly from portable devices, while HEOS wireless multi-room music integration allows the Marantz NR1608 to become part of a complete home-wide music system. Explore and play your own music library, online streaming music services and thousands of Internet radio stations, using the free HEOS app.

Powerful 7 Channel Discrete Amplifier with Eco Mode

The Marantz NR1608’s power amp section features discrete high-current output devices for superb sound with both music and movies, with, identical power on all 7 channels for precision sound. Rated at 50 watts per channel (8 ohm, 20 Hz – 20 kHz, 0.08% THD), the Marantz NR1608 features low-impedance drive capability, for excellent speaker control, and is compatible with 4 ohm speakers too. Meanwhile the Eco mode provides energy savings: it features an on-screen Eco meter, while it’s also possible to use the receiver in power-saving mode, either reducing the maximum output power or adopting low-power strategies at more modest settings – and all without any effect on the superb sound quality.

Eight HDMI inputs – including one on the front panel for quick connections – feed the Marantz NR1608’s advanced video section, supporting the latest HDMI specification, including 4K Ultra HD 60Hz video, 4:4:4 Pure Color sub-sampling, BT.2020 and HDR pass-through support on every input. Dolby Vision compatibility is now supported, too, along with pass-through for new HDR broadcast format HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) to be enabled via a future firmware update. HDCP 2.2 compatibility on all HDMI inputs, for 4K Ultra HD copy-protected content, ensures the Marantz NR1608 is ready for the next generation of Blu-ray disc players, set-top boxes and 4K Ultra HD streams and downloads, while the video processor can also upscale SD and HD video to 4K Ultra HD.
