Big sound from a slim receiver
The Marantz NR1609 is a sleek, space-saving 7.2-channel receiver that fits well in just about any setup. In addition to high-quality home theater sound, you’ll get full 4K compatibility, flexible connections, next-level wireless streaming features, and versatile options for controlling your system. Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X™ surround sound decoding brings movie soundtracks to life with heart-pounding realism.
The decor-friendly Marantz NR1609 delivers high-quality sound for movies and music.
Built for solid audio performance
The NR1609 features high-current discrete power amplifiers on all seven channels for powerful, precise sound. At 50 watts per channel, there’s plenty of power to fill small- to medium-sized rooms with thrilling sound.
This receiver lets you enjoy clear, detailed music, including playback of high-resolution digital audio files on a USB thumb drive or networked computer. Special processing cleans up lower-resolution audio formats, letting you get the most out of the ample streaming music choices you get through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Apple® AirPlay®.
Streamline your music with HEOS
Built-in HEOS technology lets you access all your music — from your personal library, internet radio, and popular streaming services like Pandora®, Spotify®, and TIDAL — through the NR1609.
This receiver can be easily integrated into a wireless multi-room audio system. Stream music to HEOS wireless speakers and components in different rooms, and control each room’s sound independently with the free HEOS app. The app lets you control playback, browse music sources, and select which rooms you want to use. Play the same music throughout your home, or listen to something different in each room.
Just ask Alexa
The HEOS Home Entertainment skill for Amazon Alexa lets you use your Echo or Echo Dot to issue voice commands to the NR1609. You can easily switch inputs and control volume and playback on the receiver and other HEOS enabled devices. Alexa can also help you search for music and stream different content to different rooms in your multi-room HEOS system.
Customizable amp configurations let you set up the system you want
The NR1609’s surround back channels can be used in whichever of four different configurations suits you best, starting with a standard 7.2-channel surround sound setup. You can use the surround back channels as height channels in a 5.2.2 Dolby Atmos setup, or to bi-amp your front speakers for more powerful sound. Or, you can set up a 5.2-channel surround sound system in your living room and use the surround back channels to power a pair of speakers in a second area like a kitchen or patio.
